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

    Pros

    Decent Insurance not great,your time off

    Cons

    Working behind someone who does not care how he routes your truck, and working behind MO and Ron who load the truck,and management has no care for the driver out of Memphis,TN.,it is truly a sorry facility to work out of.

    Advice to Management

    Put the loaders, and that useless router on a truck, and lets see if they can unload the truck in the time they give you.

    Pros

    Pay is decent, free food all the time, interesting field.

    Cons

    The work of 3 people is placed on 1 person, most employees don't get to take a lunch and put in 50-60 hrs without extra compensation, not a family-oriented company, no flexibility on hours, no incentives for meeting department goals, so why bother busting tail to meet those goals when you get paid the same regardless? Also, insurance is lousy for such a large corporation!

    Advice to Management

    Improve employee morale by offering incentives when goals are met, make employees feel appreciated for the hard work they put in day in and day out, offer more flex time, and revamp the outdated vacation schedule, oh and allow employees access from home. You have lots of young mothers and vacation time is quickly used up on taking care of sick kids.

    Pros

    #1 Food service company. Sell quality food products. Well known reputation throughout the U.S. Very close sales force. Family oriented. Good marketing support. Your refrigerator will stay packed full of free food through relationships with brokers & restaurants. Good way to build relationships in the community & restaurants.

    Cons

    Horrible pay. 100% commission. No mileage/gas reimbursement. Long, long, hours. Phone never stops ringing even on the weekends. Basically you have restaurant hours, plus the times they are not open. "Will calls" for customers who forget to order items. Prices tend to be a little higher on commodity items (chicken, beef, etc.)

    Advice to Management

    Increase pay. Reimburse fo mileage!
