    Pros

    Fast Pace, think or sink environment, excellent learning environment. Good upper level management. Solid stable company

    Cons

    14 to 15 hour work days, terrible mid management squabbling which confuses employees. No work life balance. Favoritism, inexperience and immaturity from particular mid level managers and assistant managers

    Advice to Management

    A mid shift is needed in order to balance out work load.

    Pros

    You can get discounts on food products.Also the benefits are very good because of the union. The other driver can sometimes be very helpful some of them.They will pay you for work that has been done.

    Cons

    The work is very hard on your body.Also after finishing your route early dispatch will ask you to help another driver.Management is very out of line with some of the rules they come up with.they treat you like a machine.Routing needs to be improved some other drivers will throw you under the bus and run you over.The union just collects your money and provide the benefits Sysco actually owns them so the drivers are not protected.

    Advice to Management

    How does a place like UPS make $29 a hour when your company is just as big and the work is harder.Treat employees with some respect maybe like humans and not machines then your turnover rate will not be so high. Also control your nasty customers.

    Pros

    Great benefits, once you're in they take time to cultivate you.

    Cons

    Too many others in your territory, holds a lot of the market share

    Pros

    Yeah, they offer PTO, medical, dental, etc. Who doesn't? Oh, and parking is free. Yay.

    Cons

    The general management style is "Morale will improve or the beatings will continue". Most employees have been there for 20+ years not because it's a great place, but because they don't know any better and/or don't have any transferable skills.

    Advice to Management

    You need a serious shuffle of management up top. Everyone knows the weak links - it's nepotism that has got them there and is keeping them there. Not results, not positive leadership.

    Pros

    Sysco provides a good benefits package including a pension, medical, dental, and vision. There is also a 401k. Sysco is a national company, allowing for possible relocation.

    Cons

    There is not a good work/life balance, and little tolerance for family needs. There is no good career path. There are more opportunities in Houston at the headquarters, but it is harder to lateral there than it is to hire there from outside. Education is not valued and will not contribute to your career progression/promotability.

    Advice to Management

    Take a look at turnover by department, and you will see some clear patterns. You should be asking yourself why.

    Pros

    Training, product mix, the leader in the industry. Good bonus program. Advancement is out there if you desire to do so.

    Cons

    This is really a 7 day a week position. You certainly have flexibility during the work day, but many customers order on the weekends which trancends into a very hard time of planning your weekends. It is almost impossible to attend your child's ballgame or wedding. You have to make arrangements to have someone cover your customers.

    Advice to Management

    Read those employee satisfaction surveys!
