    I worked at SYSCO Food Services of Metro New York

    Pros

    fast paced job that can make you great connections. You get what you put in ti it.

    Cons

    Not much room for growth and the amount of pointless, time consuming e-mails and meetings is painful.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Take a look at what gas and cell phones cost and what sales reps are reimbursed. Treat people a little less like a number

    I worked at SYSCO Food Services of Metro New York full-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    Excellent training and benefits. Large company with many SKU's to sell

    Cons

    Something consistent with the big 3. Sysco, US Foods and PFG. They all abuse the sales force.. They make very little in commission have little support but tons of micromanagement. Most of the DMs are terrible managers. All 3 have nasty arrogant credit managers who treat sales reps like crap. Find another industry because these 3 have ruined the food service sales career.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop abusing sales people and stealing from them by not paying expenses.

    Pros

    Stable Company
    Friendly Salesforce
    Fairly Small Office you know everyone you work with.
    2 15 min paid breaks and a 1 hour lunch(not paid).
    Lots of food to taste.

    Cons

    Management doesnt recognize good work.
    Very strict corporate rules.
    No cellphone useage in building.
    Internet usage and phone usage strictly monitored.
    Management is always looking to write you up on small stupid things.
    Management is known to listen in on phone conversations.
    I am constantly told that I can move up to the next position as Analyst but have been denied the position twice already.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Loosen the grip on the strict corporate rules that make your employees feel as if they are constantly being watched and monitored, ruining the morale of your employees in the company... Ask employees their feed back and listen to them.

    Great benefits, 50/50 match 401k, pension, good salary, made lots of contacts in the industry, lots of education and training.

    Cons

    Didnt support certain salesmen, management overwhelmed us with voicemails throughout the workday. They constantly hit you with ever changing focus points, reneged on certain incentives. My DIstrict manager didnt read his emails even though he expected you to constantly read yours.
