I worked at SYSCO Food Services of Eastern Wisconsin

Pros

If you are fresh out of college or changing careers then its a good company to be with. The pay used to be great, but the Chicago Midget re-structured how the sales team was paid. Then it didn't even pay to leave my house.

Cons

No time off, you are tied to your phone and laptop on the weekends and vacations. If your customer can't contact you and MGT finds out your treated like a child and scolded. Pay has decreased, moral has never been lower. People are in fear of there jobs, MGT controls you through intimidation.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

For the sake of a company I once loved...... Find new careers PLEASE

    I worked at SYSCO Food Services of Eastern Wisconsin

    Pros

    Merchandise discounts available to employees.

    Cons

    Long hours, always on call, no respect from management, and always waiting for the "ax" to fall.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Give your people respect, they make the company and have built the name; not just the products.

    I have been working at SYSCO Food Services of Eastern Wisconsin full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Sysco puts a lot of time and money into training employees. People in sales start out as a Marketing Associate (MA). This job can be stressful to some and exciting to others depending on how you're wired. The pay is okay for someone new to sales. There is ongoing training and Sysco wants their employees to succeed.

    Cons

    Sysco doesn't cover travel expenses so there is a lot of wear and tear on your vehicle and money spent on gas. Food is a competitive industry so it can take a fair amount of time and experience to grow sales in a new or existing accounts. MA's input customer orders and many other customer service type of activities which limits time to open new accounts.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Cultivate team spirit much more. There is a lot of focus on getting new business, but not enough on cultivating existing customers. There are always contests for MAs to win spiffs, but the message of appreciation to MAs from upper management could be much better. An MA who does an excellent job is worth his or her weight in gold.
