    I have been working at Sysco (more than an year)

    Pros

    Most of the people are great to work with; of course you have the occassional person who is miserable in their own like so they have to make yours too. Aside from that, there is a gym on campus as well as a cafeteria/grill that offers several different foods to eat.

    Cons

    Management might be busy but it's important to treat others with respect and learn how to listen and adddress any issues.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Don't let a dollar sign encourage you or force you to ignore the reason why we work for Sysco. Be sure to treat the customer with respect and to EXPECT that from your employees; even the ones who sell a ton of product.

    I have been working at Sysco full-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    Great pay, top scale within three years. Amazing benefits. I love working nights, so their swing shift is perfect for me. You can buy the products from their warehouse at cost.

    Cons

    Pay is a little low to start with, but goes up dramatically over your first three years. It's in Wilsonville, so it's a bit of a drive.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep doing what your doing. It works.

    Pros

    Good salary, and benefits. opportunity to increase your income, highly diverse, great environment , very nice people. Professional and respectful management. open door policy for any upper management. helpful and great colleagues.

    Cons

    A lot of work hours , more than 60 hour per week , you get burned in your first year, sometimes it has biased bonus structures. endless long meetings, ( at least two meeting weekly). most of the times you work beyond regular hours and sometimes on the weekends. territories structures are just unfair .

    Pros

    A comprehensive benefit package. Company Stability.

    Cons

    Slow moving decision making from superiors and an internal bonus structure that tends to have departments work against each other to make bonus.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Bring back the entrepreneurial attitude that brought SYY to 45 Billion in sales and made the stock split over and over.

    Current Employee - Technician Lead in Post Falls, ID

    I have been working at Sysco full-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    Great pay for my area. Good balance of work and home life. My bosses are always worried i work to much and dont spent enought time home. Which i have never had a job that gave two shi#s about my home life. There isnt a single person i dont get along with, everyone is really easy to work with.

    Cons

    Most of the equipment i have to work on is a lot older then I'm used to. coming from a dealer i'm used to fixing what needs fixing. Here i have a budget That i have to contend with. I make sure were compliant always but still these old trucks and trailers are killing my budget and bonus lol

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I Would never let my fleet get this old. It has a direct over head cost when fixing them. It's cheaper and more cost affective to have new equipment less over the road brake downs less down time. Cheaper in the end.
