    I have been working at Sysco (Less than a year)

    Pros

    This is a company that has great benefits, and allows for a flexible schedule; thus, this allows for the ability and potential to generate new business within a territory. The company has excellent products and strives to provide exceptional customer service.

    Cons

    The requirement for this job is long, non-conventional, hours and a large territory. There is no mileage reimbursement or cell phone allowance; however, due to the expansive territory, these expenses are incurred by the employee. In addition, all office expenses are absorbed by the employee, as well, and these are required for the ample execution of the duties of the job.
