    Its size sometimes allows good people to fall out of management's focus.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Always keep an open mind and look to embrace new and untried ideas.

    Pros

    Lots of growth potential, company willing to train. Company laptop.

    Upper management seems to be in a time warp sometimes. HR lowballs fiercely! No cafeteria...wth?? They outsource their IT help desk offshore which makes for a nightmare a lot of times.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get up to speed with the changes going on.

    Former Employee - Human Resources Intern in Houston, TX
    Former Employee - Human Resources Intern in Houston, TX

    I worked at Sysco as an intern (less than an year)

    Pros

    Hourly Pay - Can't really beat what they paid me for my time throughout the internship.
    Culture - Really great culture that is being fostered at the Corporate (and Share Business Services) office(s). People are usually willing to help interns learn.

    Cons

    Everyone is really busy a lot of the time. You really have to manage your own time around their time if you want to meet with them. That being said, that just means you need to practice your time management skills.

    Former Employee - Intern - Hourly in Houston, TX

    I worked at Sysco as an intern (less than an year)

    Pros

    The Environment is somewhat relaxed. No one seemed to mind what time you came in, just so long as your work was done. The offices have lots of natural lighting. No one is leaning over your shoulder to micro manage. Everyone is self-motivated to do their work. Each intern is given a summer project to work on. The goals are very clearly laid out for you. You aren't thrown into the water on your own. You are encouraged to ask questions and pull from the experiences of those around you. Senior management is very accessible. They make time to mentor and teach you. Overall it was a very rewarding experience.

    Cons

    The merger left too many things up in the air. It was unclear where i would fit into the new organization
