    Pros

    This company is easy to work for. They support their customers with pride.

    Cons

    They are slow to give any raises. They are always on a wage freeze.

    Advice to Management

    Show your employees you care with pay increases.

  2. Used to be a good place to work. Seattle is cutting expenses to reduce overhead.

    Pros

    The benefits are ok - Good Medical insurance . Only 5 day of sick time per year - use it or lose it.

    Cons

    Management expected you to work from home after hours and on weekends, if your salary. Alway working. The management does not respect the number of years you have with the company. The retirement was discounted and not it's 401K investments.

  3. Great job.

    Pros

    The strongest and best food service supplier in the country

    Cons

    An uncertain future for its employees. Lack of careering for its long time employees. Has devalued the role of their employees and have demonstrated absolutely no loyalty to the employess that made Sysco Seattle what it is today.

  6. Good Company to start in sales

    Pros

    Lot's of Training - you can take it & use it, or just sit through it.... They train on the same things over & over so eventualy you get it - or you don't make it in sales. Flexability you can make adjustments to your day if you need to as you set your route up how it will work best for you & customers

    Cons

    Lot's of hours, work 7 days a week even if just checking voice mail on one of the days (usually have more to do than check voice mail) Hard to grow a profitable route as they over lap sales people in every area. This is the hardest easy job you will ever have.

    Advice to Management

    Get your butts out there & stay in touch with reality.... most upper management has no idea /been so long they can't remember what it is like to be in the trenches everyday
