    I have been working at Sysco full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    Great history and former leader in the industry.

    Cons

    Dramatic change over the past 5 years difficult to see how much and how quickly current management lost focus of what made the company succeed.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Look at what made the company a success and return to the core values that worked. Hire a President the understands the industry.

    I worked at Sysco full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Independence, Recognizable Company Name for resume. real world street sales. Clientele is nice if they haven't been too abused in the past by food service reps

    Cons

    Chains are handled by National Sales and there are not nearly enough independent companies to be able to keep the sales staff occupied. Margins tight and compensation doesn't meet investment of time. If they propose commission and declining salary.... run for the hills. No Margins left in food and Sysco takes their cut first Turnover rate in sales over 50% with about 100 reps in less than a year. Pricing usually higher than competitors on same items

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    make this a salaried position with bonus. Start reps with a fair amount of accounts to begin with.
