I have been working at Sysco

Pros

fun job for the most part, not too stressful... fun getting to know local restauranteurs, quite a bit of personal freedom if you don't get a micro manager but that is a crap shoot. access to lots of great samples and fun products. great co workers.

Cons

no car allowance for sales people! you will run your car ragged, spend a ton of money on gas and get no help from Sysco. also no cell phone allowance even though you are constantly on the phone. usually most of the good accounts are taken and new sales people have to call on smaller customers and wait to inherit good accounts. pricing is too high and in order to sell anything the sales person has to slash their own profit margins. vey difficult to make good money unless you have been there for years. older sales people are lifers as they have all the good accounts.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

reward the salespeople who work hard, don't ignore them.... give the sales people pricing to work with. car and cell phone allowances would be a great idea but hey Sysco isn't a 30 billion dollar company because they pay their sales people well.

    Pros

    Very committed place to work. They value their employees and see that steps are taken to ensure there voice is heard and actions are taken when problems do occur.

    Cons

    Promotions don't always go to the person that is best qualified. There is still some of the good old boy in this organization and it is not what you know but who you know or how long you have been with the company.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Continue to listen to those who work for you.
