    I have been working at SYSCO Food Services of San Francisco full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Decent training, good benefits and if your a lifer (10+ years), you will eventually make the "money" they sell you on. Give them a year, and they train you to work for the completion and make way more off the bat! This is a good job everywhere besides SF, you will make more $$ everywhere but the city.

    Cons

    Don't let HR or the company fool you, this is a "door to door" sales job. You feel very unfulfilled in your career and the rejection all around you doesn't help.

    First 2 years, you will not make any money if you live in SF. The beginning wage is great if you live at home with mom, have no kids, and are not in a relationship. But for the rest of the adults in the area, look else where. The city is so competitive that you're not going make any commission or make your bonus. Bonus is paid out if you sell more units than last year. The problem is that SF market is the most competitive in the nation, you always lose business, whether it was you or the person that had that territory before you, you're still held accountable for the negative numbers. The commission structure is so flawed that IF you do make a bonus, you start to equate what it took vs pay out, its very uneven, you'll start to see how not worth it is.

    Turn over is high, they lose about 40% around the 8 months to year and half mark from the new hired recruits.

    Like mentioned above, the company does a survey every year, logistic problems and upper management has always scored low, nothing new, same story, nothing gets handled.

    Now the job is not all negative, if you actually make it. But there is a certain type that does great in this job and you will know if you are that type aound month 7, mind you if you're still in the same boat 4 months later, don't expect change, take that as a hint.

    Advice to Management

    Find a way to grow and cultivate talent that can help, don't send them off to the competition!

    Pros

    So much to learn and get exposed to. Sysco Interactive University has a lot to offer if you find the time to actually use it to advance your knowledge. Flexible hours.

    Cons

    Very poor culture! Employee moral is so low. Management don't trust employees (top to bottom). Employees have no respect for management. Very fast paced work environment they work you to death. Management don't listen to what you have to offer and stay in their boxed mentality. Many members of the management have been with Sysco for 20 plus years and worked their way up from floor level. Most have no proper education for the position they are holding and are not willing to listen or use the talents in the team. Employees are like objects to them. As a result of all this, the turn over is very high and the place never settles. Promotions are based on who you know and not what you know. People get promoted and the job is not even posted. People get fired in a heart beat.

    Advice to Management

    Bring more talent from outside and use their knowledge and experience. Listen to your employees and their concerns. They are your best assets and not your enemy. Work on that culture. Be more environmentally conscious. It's 2016 for heaven's sake.

    Pros

    Benefits, but most other company's have the same.

    Cons

    Upper Management all the way to the top really do not care what the employees have to say, example: all employees took a survey , Sysco Corp was so unsatisfied with what the employees had to say all (especially at the Fremont location) they made the managers talk to us....they ended up having us re-take the survey...same results...Management dose not care what the employees have to say...so sad

    Advice to Management

    Do not ask what we want or need help with unless you have the balls to do something about it - your favoritism ways are so transparent to everyone...Stop the BS
