    I worked at Sysco full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Some flexibility in hours, free food from all the samples

    Cons

    Well do I start! The most you will make is when you start. Was there for 6 years and increased my sales by 10% or better each year however I made less every year. Had 7 different pay plans during that time and every salary change I was promised that I would make more money! Hogwash! Management was way over their heads, poor decisions. Being on call all the time, no help from customer service. Unorganized district meetings, what a joke. LOL 99% of the reps hated them and thought it was a waste of time....

    Advice to Management

    Keep it simple. Too much management stuck in there office chairs trying to come up with ideas on how to increase sales. How can you do that when you have no clue of what is really happening on the road. Get off your buts and talk/visit with your customers! Listen to your sales people. Management has no clue. How can you spend thousands of dollars on a food show just to have management sit on their buts away from the customers talking about what they were going to do on the weekend!!! I'm a professional but this company had no plan for me. Dead end job. Super glad I left . Now I'm back on career growth and meeting my potential......

    I worked at Sysco full-time (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 Management

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