I worked at Sysco full-time (more than 10 years)

Pros

The company offers good benefits and training. There are some very experienced people who can teach new employees a lot about the food business.

Cons

This company is very "flavor of the week" and will change focus and direction on a dime. Shareholders are the prime focus to the detriment of employees. Employees are paying the price for failed initiatives and the company has made many cuts that make the job extremely difficult. Unqualified "yes men" who blame their employees for their own failures are promoted to the detriment of the company. Morale is in the basement at this company.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Open your eyes and hold middle managers accountable.

    I worked at Sysco full-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    Most people are willing to work together across multiple departments. Medical and Dental plans are offered. They do have a matching 401k plan.

    Cons

    Senior Management thinks that downsizing to cut expenses laying off several in house staff and expecting the remaining associates to pick the additional workload is OK! Over the 8 years I was with the company I ended doing 3 people's jobs!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Take time to appreciate the employees doing the work! Take notice of the Quantity you are expecting any 1 associate to complete.

    Pros

    Fast Pace work place, some overtime but if you want to make money, it should not bother you

    Cons

    Freezer too cold, but they will provide you good freezer bib, has the dryer on the doc to warm you face mask.
