PFG Sucks Customer Reviews and Feedback

From Everything.Sucks

The Principal Financial Group is a global financial investment management and insurance company headquartered in Des Moines, Iowa, U.S.A. Four segments comprise the company: Retirement and Income Solutions, Principal Global Investors, Principal International, and U.S. Insurance Solutions.

Dean shares his disappointing review on Yelp, "Principal seems to hire sadists who seem to enjoy making even the simplest things unnecessarily & infuriatingly difficult. In 12 moves during our 20-year term life insurance, around 1/2 the time spent to Change Of Address (with ~40 companies!) has been in ugly encounters wrestling with the daft policies and people of Principal. Making a process as simple and routine as a COA takes 2-4 hours of make-work every time, God forbid that you'd ever need to make an actual claim. We sure wish there'd been online reviews back 20 years ago!"

Truck Driver Class A (Former Employee) says

"I started there and got my CDL through them at first they seemed cool. The training is awful you get a paper with instructions and left to your own to figure it out. It's basically sink or swim. Communication is non existent. There is favoritism. The drive out times are nuts. Be prepared to never see your family or have no social life because you will work at least 16 to 20 hours a shift 4 days a week. Yes you make decent money but you can make more money without even touching freight a. Upper management treats drivers like garbage barking out orders they don't care about you. All they care about is you delivering there precious groceries so they can make a profit all while they sit back and crack the whip. I heard the place has a 85 percent turnover rate that means there is a problem. Other drivers you get teamed with can be ignorant. Having to go to the bathroom is a sign of weakness. Not stopping an entire day. You can go other places and get payed more..treated better...and less work..the place is kind of a last resort for a job. NoneBad management. Long hours. Treated like a slave. Bad training."

Route Driver (Former Employee) says

"management dont care about the employees If you get hurt on the they will try to get rid of you.Over work you no gd equipment the trucks such. If your not white they don't care for you.noneeverything"

Truck Driver (Former Employee) says

"Salary is the worst compared to similar companies that do the exact same work. PFG is the 2nd largest food service at this point due to acquisitions. They pay the least and have the worst benefits. There are several divisions. TPC is rife with falsehoods,misguidance,and horrible equipment. Favoritism and no respect for drivers. Management hates each other so it pours down on drivers. Cutthroat island!!! Union shop and the union has been compromised years ago. Drivers pay 100% for their own healthcare and that is written into their contract. This place is only a job. Please find somewhere else and you'll thank me if not years later you'll remember reading my review and say to yourself I should've listened.A jobYou could do better in a lot of less places"

Driver (Former Employee) says

"Job has no values for Houston terminal Management needs to be fired old trucks old equipment old habits they don’t care at all they only worried about you getting the truck off the yard legal or illegal.Trash management don’t waste your time"

Selector/Sanitation (Former Employee) says

"The working conditions are very bad management expects you to work yourself to death and you barely get a thank you. You only get 5 sick days a year unpaid and after you are fired and you work 10-11hrs a day 5 days a weekNoneEverything"

Senior Delivery Driver (Former Employee) says

"The noobs get paid the same as the senior drivers which is bs. They will use you up then spit you out your just a number to them. HR doesn’t have a clue, HR is a drone or a yes sir type of person you mean nothing to them."

Procurement Buyer (Former Employee) says

"This company is running behind. They will work you to the bone, you take many job caps and they expect you to just know everything. Not a great company it ill always the the smaller company trying to compete with Sysco foods."

Truck Driver Class A (Former Employee) says

"Not a good place to work. The company is very disorganized and you are less than a number. Work life balance is not a thing at this place. They will offer you the moon in first month and after that nothing."

Truck Driver - Doubles/Shuttle Drive (Former Employee) says

"Run and run faster get away from these clowns they couldn’t run the cub scouts never mind a company, supervisors aren’t so super they are stupid no clue and hr protects them it the good ol boy system don’t do it you’ll regret itNoneEverything"

CDL Class A Driver (Former Employee) says

"Loads are thrown in the trailer and then you have to dig through everything to find your store’s product if it isn’t damaged or thaw because the reefers are useless. Every one is out to blame anyone and everyone else especially management. Constantly micro managing every movement especially after you complain about management because nothing is kept private. Extremely sexist so if you are a woman then don’t bother even applying even if you have experience"

Transportation Supervisor (Former Employee) says

"Mngmnt. works you like an animal and threatens your job by termination when you ask for a break. Constantly asked to lie/cheat. HR backs these actions"

Account Manager (Former Employee) says

"Run away. They have poor selection and high prices. You will have trouble competing when you bid. The management is no help and clueless about most things."

Delivery Driver (Current Employee) says

"They don't care about you don't get hurt then they turn their back on you. You have to get their products to the restaurant no matter what and pick up back hauls no matter how long it takesNoneWorking for the company"

DRIVER (Former Employee) says

"This company presented very biased, racist and followed a "good old boy system". Middle management acknowledged that someone of color would never advance or be treated the same as others within the company."

None (Former Employee) says

"PFG does not know how to take care of it's employees. Union won't have you're back. No respect no proper management. People will back stab you. No common sense there."

Order Selector (Former Employee) says

"They have no appreciation for employees that have stayed through hard times, and continuously make it harder to make money money. Management is a joke and expects people to work 13-15 hours a day"

Route Driver (Former Employee) says

"Worst job ever. Hours are earlier and days are long. You never get holidays off. Everything is done by favoritism and everyone is back stabbing. No clear direction in company there losing money instead of .making itLots of hoursLow pay"

Area Account Manager (Former Employee) says

"fun place to work, upper management has zero clue what it takes to get things done on the street level..........................................................................................................................this company would be better if they would fire the people in charge and not go by the "good old boy network.""

Inside sales representative (Former Employee) says

"this company does nothing for its employees. it is a horrible place to work as far as management. unorganized, favorites played, no training, enjoyed the customers"

Selector/Forklift Operator (Former Employee) says

"They expect you to give up your life, family, kids for them. Long Hours, Low pay, then when you have stuff come up (like a funeral) they call you at home and tell you if you don't come in your fired. The place is a joke. The management is terrible, accidents happen all the time because everyone is overworked. But if you report an injury, you get fired. Mutiple osha and health violations everyday. If you respect yourself, DON'T WORK FOR THEM!"
