    I have been working at Sysco Canada (More than a year)

    Pros

    Good team lead which is restricted by higher up managers on what advancement opportunities are available. Decent work/life balance mostly.

    Cons

    Stuck in one position due to outsourcing to overseas contractors, and being on call and overseas contractors not understand when they're calling at 6pm I'm eating dinner with my family and I need 10-15 minutes to finish up or when they call at 2am, I'm not at the office and I need time to get ready and drive to office

    Advice to Management

    Less outsourcing and allow employees advancement opportunities instead of giving these jobs to contractors.

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

    Pros

    Some good people working there, free food sometimes.

    Cons

    IMHO - Below average benefits and pay. Safety gets nothing but lip service and employees are discouraged from reporting injuries that management does nothing to prevent. Uses employees hard, treats them poorly, and then discards them. Thrives on bullying and harassment of workers to meet targets.

    Advice to Management

    Get serious on improving and cut some of the upper level incompetents. This is a warehouse operation, it is not rocket science to run safely and efficiently. Pay workers a decent wage and benefits

    Pros

    Great people to work with, flexible work schedule, great benefits and discount on stock purchases, great support from upper management.

    Cons

    Constantly changing direction, more expectations and initiatives expected to be executed in the same amount of time, departments have different objectives and do not work cohesively.

    I worked at Sysco Canada full-time

    Pros

    Free parking and staff discounts - the people you work with are great

    Cons

    Topline focus on business and bottom line is relentless

    Advice to Management

    Not sure where the strategy is pointing to ... that's ok neither does the Senior Management. Change is not a strategy. Start by inspiring your associates; promote people that enhance the culture not just the bottom line.

    Pros

    Benefits package is excellent, job is flexible, you can work from anywhere as you are fully mobile. build strong relationships with long term customers

    Cons

    You have an electronic leash that is your phone. you work 7 days a week. making profit plan seems more important than compensating employees for their work, the clawback in 2017 is straight unfair

    Advice to Management

    Do more to enable a balance of work and life. dint gloss over the poor feedback in the annual work climate survey.

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

    Pros

    Benefits are decent. They have free lunches and give away free stuff.

    Cons

    The work that requires at least five they expect one person to do it, whether it is possible or not. The management is least bothered about employees and are full of negative surprises. Their focus is how to make maximum work with minimum pay and give negative ratings when it comes to pay hike. Getting promoted is possible only for higher management. For others it is a dream.

    Advice to Management

    Value your employees. See what is going on in market out side and stay updated.

    Take better care of your people.
