    I worked at Sysco full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    Good hardworking people, learning different systems

    Cons

    Long ours, weekends, on-calls and too much Smoked testing at 7am on Sundays... Little or no trainings, no career oportunities.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Management needs to be in charge of bad company decisions, not the people working hard for little money...

    It's like working for the Empire from Star Wars if the Empire were just as evil but run by morons.

    I have been working at Sysco full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    The paycheck is decent. If you get off on crass jokes and screwing people over then you'll have a great time.

    Cons

    Management motivates with fear, not incentive. Employees are expendable. Extremely high stress job. You will come to love your customers but hate your coworkers, which will put you in a moral bind because the company will demand that you screw your customers over. This is by far the embodiment of everything bad that people mean when they say "big corporation". By the way, the new software they just rolled out is absolutely awful, even though they will try to say otherwise. Did you see that movie Office Space? This is about a million times worse than that. Also the benefits suck.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Upper management has nothing to worry about because as long as they keep stepping on the little guy they will be fine - right up to the day that they file for bankruptcy because their company has died from within.
