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

    Pros

    Pay starting off is decent but after about three months the pay gets extremely better as you start to learn the warehouse and start selecting faster. The faster your pick rate is and lower your error rate is the more money you make.

    Cons

    The hours are long and the work is extremely rough on the body. Sometimes the time off between shifts isn't enough to recover for the next night.

    Pros

    Work life balance
    Pay (above average but less than O&G)
    Benefits are average but the Sysco perks make them awesome.
    Leadership (My Boss ROCKS) most leaders are real leaders
    Friends are easy to make, I have seen no back stabbing from employee to employee
    Growth opportunities are endless
    Free FOOD!!! Everyday free fruit thought the buildings on food testing employees can take samples home
    Onsite Gym
    Cafeteria and Coffee shop is like eating out at restaurant

    Cons

    The work keeps coming and you are strtched thin at times.
    NO SAP!!!
    NO ERP...
    No daycare or dry cleaning on site

    I have been very lucky to be apart of the Sysco family, thank you.

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

    Pros

    The incentive program is better than most others I've worked for.

    Cons

    The hours can be pretty long and working nights is awful, other than that it is pretty much typical of a warehouse job.

    Advice to Management

    Communication and consistency are a problem. The supervisors done communicate with each other very well.

    Pros

    Flexible working conditions. Good way to see the inner workings of the company.
