    I worked at Sysco Canada part-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Work-life balance was okay depending on what department you worked for, good benefits, occasional free food from the company chef

    Cons

    You could get stuck with a bad supervisor. This isn't the place to be if you're looking for innovative ideas that look to the future. Lots of menial work.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Executives sometimes seem out of touch with the reality of what's happening in the warehouse and on the ground. Touch base.

    I have been working at Sysco Canada

    Pros

    Great over time pay. That is all I can say

    Cons

    There is completely no work life balance. Only benefit the higher ups. Opens 6 days a week but will make you come on off day when there is a holiday in the week. Horrible work place.

    Pros

    - Good Pay

    - Great Product
    - Amazing work environment

    Cons

    Have to get up early! aha :) No but really i don't have any complaints about Sysco, it's a great place to work. Only complaint i have is the ware house in Pembroke messes up the skids a lot sometimes making it a very hard task to get to the freezer on the newer trailers.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    It would save time if you have all the dry in different colored boxes than the cooler. So when they're mixed on the skid it's easily noticeable other than reading labels
