I have been working at Sysco full-time (More than a year)

Pros

Sysco is a great company to work for if you don't work in the COSTING department. No matter how bad you need a job, PLEASE DO NOT make the mistake of applying for anything in COSTING!!!

Cons

The Manager and SR. Manager create an inhospitable work environment; ruling by fear, blatant favoritism, constant monitoring of emails to name a few. Very little training so they have the opportunity to write you up for making mistakes. You can’t apply for another internal position within 1 year of being in the same position. By the way… they will write you up shortly after your 1 year completion so you can’t apply outside of the department (you have to wait 6 months after your write up; you might as well forget applying in other departments since they will bad mouth you to other managers).

Advice to Management

Develop a better training system. Make sure the compensation is competitive and in line with industry averages for maintaining dual systems. Reassign both Managers into roles that do not require managing employees; they are valuable to the company in other ways.

    I worked at Sysco full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Flexibility/ daily schedule/ a slackers dream if money is not important

    Cons

    Increasing equity price on commodity products made it tough to maintain margins and make money. There were a lot of promises that failed to be delivered on.

    Advice to Management

    Try partnering with customers needs instead of dictating to customers. Give local ma's the opportunity to make a decent check without constant worry of loosing customers due to constant increases in commodity pricing.
