    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.

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

    Pros

    Some of the Associates I worked with.

    Cons

    Retaliation - does not honor code of ethics policies.

    Advice to Management

    Look into how some departments (Customer Service) are allowed to work outside the Code of Ethics policy. Retaliation is used if you speak out about how you are being treated.

    I worked at Sysco full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    The company offers a lot of tools to assist in your sales career. The commission schedule is enhanced with tenure.

    Cons

    Insane computer input of data. Takes away 10-15 hours weekly from actual sell time. Senior management's focus at the local OPCO level is more focused on profit than people. Prices are manipulated to help the very biggest of accounts.

    Advice to Management

    Lessen the burden of call documents and focus on sales.

    Pros

    Decent pay and benefits. In general regular staff are good people to work with

    Cons

    Upper management are clueless only interested in bottom line. Employees mean nothing. Can let people go at a drop of a hat. No ethics.

    Advice to Management

    Care about all staff not just higher ups. It was the small people that helped you get where you are! Management forgets this.
