Mission: To market and deliver great products to our customers with exceptional service. Vision: To be our customers' most valued and trusted business partner.
Building customer relationships requires time, effort and sincerity. For Sysco, it began with a promise to assist foodservice operators in providing consumers with solutions for meals consumed away from home. Since the initial public offering in 1970, when sales were $115 million, Sysco has grown to $55 billion in sales for fiscal year 2017.
Many solid customer relationships have been nurtured along the way, countless dining trends and meal alternatives have evolved, and today the decision to consume meals prepared away from home is as much necessity as choice. Since then, the industry it serves has expanded from $35 billion to approximately $400 billion.
Today, Sysco has sales and service relationships with approximately 500,000 customers and remains committed to helping them succeed in the foodservice industry and satisfy consumers' appetites. Operating from 300 locations across the globe, Sysco's product lines are as diverse as the 65,000 associates who support its daily operations. They include not only the ingredients needed to prepare meals, but also numerous ancillary preparation and serving items. As a result, Sysco can make a difference in its customers' lives and the success of their businesses.
At Sysco, we strive to increase the diversity of our workforce, reflecting the communities we serve at every level of our organization.
Support and sustain an inclusive work environment that engages and enables a diverse workforce to drive customer service and loyalty and, ultimately, business growth.

Sysco is launching inclusive Leadership Training for our associates, in which we will identify best practices and incorporate diversity into our ground-level business operations. These trainings will raise awareness, facilitate communication, and foster an inclusive culture.
We partner with our operating companies to align our key business practices with the core values of diversity and inclusion.
To reinforce diversity and inclusion as core values in our company, Sysco will integrate relevant communications in ongoing business processes, and enhance core aspects of our employee learning curriculum.
At Sysco, we want every employee to have the peace of mind that comes from a comprehensive rewards package that offers a wide variety of benefits to help protect their health and financial security, as well as prepare them for retirement.
We offer numerous benefits to all eligible, full-time associates and their covered dependents (variations may exist for certain locations):
* Provided when enrolled in a Sysco-sponsored medical plan.
At Sysco and throughout our operating companies, providing a safe and productive work environment for our associates is a core value. We go beyond the basics to create a sustainable, better, safer workplace.
We place a high priority on addressing the root causes of workplace injuries, from revising the ergonomics of our truck cabs and loading ramps to encouraging safer behaviors such as proper lifting techniques and safe driving practices. Our employees receive safety training and guidance and are expected to follow appropriate work practices.
Sysco has committed to partner with the federal Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) through its Voluntary Protection Program, which recognizes businesses and worksites demonstrating excellence in occupational safety and health. Several of our OpCo’s have already achieved or are in the process of review for “STAR” designations from OSHA.

Advice to Management
I have been very lucky to be apart of the Sysco family, thank you.
I applied online. I interviewed at Sysco in October 2016.
So Far I have only completed the phone interview. Marilynne from HR called to schedule a phone interview two days in advance. The interview lasted abut 20 minutes and was mostly about previous employers and reasons for leaving. The second part of the interview was why I would be a good fit for the company. I should hear back by the end of the week about an in person behavioral interview.
