    Pros

    Great company to work for. You are working for the leader in the industry. Great products, great marketing, great innovation, and a great team of resources.

    Cons

    Very competitive industry. Competition likes to undercut you by price. Too many reps in the area. Having to use your own vehicle to run product to customer. Wear and tear on your vehicle.

    Pros

    Buyers & Associates were great
    employee food discounts
    suppliers & food reps were great to work with
    Job is fun
    Impressed with the ability to move up in the company

    Cons

    expected to work 24/7 - "asked" to be on road 8a-5p, need to be on laptop1st thing in the morning and take care of paper work after 5pm and on weekends. I worked many holidays with normal pay, even though you are told it's a paid holiday.If you work a holiday there is no additional time given in exchange. Must use personal smartphone and are required to have Sysco apps loaded onto it. All expenses are the MA's resonsibility - gas, mileage, office supplie, cell phone, monies spent on customers...MA's must claim this on their taxes at the end of the year. The money is minimal compared to the amount of personal time and out of pocket expenses - TURN OVER IS HIGH

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    increase the MA starting salary to what it once was - $55,000
    $45,000 is not enough to live on let alone pay out of pockets work expenses

    Pros

    If you are fresh out of college or changing careers then its a good company to be with. The pay used to be great, but the Chicago Midget re-structured how the sales team was paid. Then it didn't even pay to leave my house.

    Cons

    No time off, you are tied to your phone and laptop on the weekends and vacations. If your customer can't contact you and MGT finds out your treated like a child and scolded. Pay has decreased, moral has never been lower. People are in fear of there jobs, MGT controls you through intimidation.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    For the sake of a company I once loved...... Find new careers PLEASE

    Pros

    Merchandise discounts available to employees.

    Cons

    Long hours, always on call, no respect from management, and always waiting for the "ax" to fall.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Give your people respect, they make the company and have built the name; not just the products.
