    I worked at Sysco full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Early morning starts and for the most part you’ll be home every night for dinner. If you’re willing to run for the cases they’ll pay you for it.

    Cons

    The insurance was too high for bi weekly pay schedule. Doing 800 to 1200 cases a day with 16 stops will beat up your body. But you’ll stay in shape

    Advice to Management

    Look at redoing the loads, because digging all the time can slow down a driver.

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

    Pros

    A lot of work has gone into making the drivers lives easier. Hired more drivers and more experienced drivers instead of a bunch of recent graduates who don’t know what they are doing. New sups replaced longer term poor attitude supervisors and they actually answer the phone when we call in during the day.

    Cons

    Some of the equipment is old and breaks down. This large of a company should have a lots of new equipment.

    Advice to Management

    Get better trucks and keep all the new drivers.

    Pros

    Great money, benefits, and management

    Cons

    Wear and tear on body

    Advice to Management

    Take care of the ones who have a passion for the job they do, not many people truly care anymore

    I have been working at Sysco full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Union Job, company paid insurance, great pay, stock options, paid weekly, home everyday, overtime after 8 hrs daily.

    Cons

    Long hours, physically demanding, old equipment, work most holidays, jr drivers work Saturday, understaffed.

    Advice to Management

    Management needs to do a better job at training both drivers and warehouse. They need to do a better job at keeping fully staffed. Working conditions never change, trucks are loaded terribly, routes are long, and equipment is kept in poor condition.
