    Pros

    Competitive pay. Good benefits. A lot of opportunities to advance. Good job security. Locations all over the country.

    Cons

    You will work a lot of overtime. Almost every promotion means going back to night shift. It's almost impossible to call in or get time off.

    I worked at Sysco

    Pros

    Home every night, benefits and of weekends

    Cons

    Long hours start at 6am and work all day ramp and dolly style! Poor pay structure, use to be good until they started cutting back, lucky to get a check over $800 for the amount of back breaking work you will be doing! The worst equipment I've ever seen, plan for your truck to break down at least once a week!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Look at how your competitors operate and take notes!
