    I have been working at Sysco

    Pros

    Well know company, locations all over the world. stock discount of 15%. health insurance if full time employee. Vacation time is provided, however, you will never really get to take it.

    Cons

    work 50-65 hours per week even during holidays and even if you are on vacation. Deadlines can not be reached due to all the last minutes changes and "one last change" and "just this one last addition" to your already heavy work load.

    Advice to Management

    Be more realistic with deadlines and goals. If there is a holiday during the week, please push back the deadlines so the "regular" employees can have a day off like you get.

    Pros

    Great pay, home every day

    Cons

    poor communication, company has no concern for the drivers. I was told several times the drivers cost the company money the warehouse makes the company money

    Advice to Management

    selectors need to load better, product was almost always buried

    Pros

    Set your own hours and schedule. They won't micromanage as long as your revenue is growing.

    Cons

    You have to use your personal vehicle. The miles add up quickly.

    Advice to Management

    You really need to think about providing company vehicles to outside sales. Putting 60,000 miles on a personal vehicle in one year is a problem.

    Pros

    If you know people you can move around pretty easy if you know the career path that you want to go in provided.

    Cons

    No work life balance. Everyone was expected to work long hours and at a high stress level to get things done.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to people it just goes back to the basics. If everyone really got the platform to express ideas you would be amazed at the suggestions and you already know some of the things you need to do. But there has never truly been an atmosphere that allows anyone to voice their suggestions.

    Pros

    Electric jack and lift gates on all trucks with the exception of pup trailers

    Cons

    Very high insurance,back breaking work, routes are seniority based, low compensation, harder u work the more they put on u. Proceed with caution

    Advice to Management

    Bill Delaney needs to worry about how many drivers he lost instead of the merger with us foods. Every @ Sysco revolves around the merger not the employees

    Long hours
    No incentive

    Advice to Management

    Bill Delaney and his staff should be ashamed of what this place turned into. Once a recognizable name has now turned into a recognizable joke. Bottom line they need to go!!!!

    Pros

    The harder you work the more you earn, kinda

    Cons

    It's 24/7 baby, just like your own business without the control or the rewards

    Advice to Management

    The money always seems to go somewhere besides the employees pocket, say it with cash prove you care!

    Pros

    Compensation. SYSCO has a big stick when comes to negotiations, while the competition does not. You may not have the talent, but are somewhat successful due huge purchasing leverage.

    Cons

    Good old boy club. It is almost impossible to advance unless you are sponsored or supported by one of the boys.

    Advice to Management

    Invest the time and money into your people. They are limitless can do anything.

    Pros

    The company is growing and is the industry leader. You have a salary and the bonus structure is very attainable. Great health benefits. With the bonus you make good money. Making your own schedule is plus.

    Cons

    The company as a whole does not pay attention to National Accounts because their profit margins for that side of the business are low. Little to no training for the position. Lack of structure and no standard operating procedures. The technology is antiquated, at best, causing difficulties for both employee's and customers. You are expected to work off hours and weekends. There is no opportunity to move up.

    Advice to Management

    Develop a guideline for the job. Start training tailored to National Accounts. Implement standard operating procedures. Focus on creating a positive work environment. Upgrade computers, operating systems, internet speeds and IT support.
