    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

    Freedom to come and go as you please

    Cons

    revolving door of new employees demonstrates that this job is not for everyone. In fact on 10-20% of all sales persons are achieving the status needed to increase their income. Most find annual pay to vary greatly from year to year.

    Communication is an asset not a hindrance
