Team Lead II (Former Employee) – Cypress, TX – March 15, 2017
Much of job tasks correlate to deadlines (weekly, monthly, quarterly, and annually) This resulted in staying for overtime in order to have tasks completed. Could be beneficial if you like working overtime, but it can become tiresome. Workplace culture is diverse but can be a little "high school clique" depending on the department.
Since most of the customer service departments have moved out to Cypress, if you are use to the hustle and bustle of city life, this is a drastic change and major adjustment.

Good starter job, if your flexible and adaptable to constant change. The Company is growing and expanding, but the challenges around that can be developmental or treacherous depending on who is leading you.
If you have the energy and perspective you can grow
If you don't like constant change it can be gut wrenching
Sysco works hard to create a positive enriching work environment, however there is little to no training for lower to middle management. These managers are often promoted as a next step in their career but lack the necessary skills to lead a team to excellence.
What I learned working at Sysco is that there is a big difference between managing and leading. I also learned what it is like to work for a very large corporation and that it can often be difficult to have your voice heard without good leadership support. on
Co-workers at Sysco a very diverse. There are all walks of life employed by this company and this diversity was welcome. Sysco touts that they hire "world class talent" but I did learn that they tolerated some people that may have been in over their head.
In my role, I found the hardest part to be that there was no job security. My department was created in an attempt to centralize procurement but the mission failed resulting in the closure of our department and immediate layoffs.
Hands down the most enjoyable part of the job was the friendships that were built during my tenure.
Holiday parties, relaxed work environment, dress code included jeans every day
Was exited to work for such a large company but soon came to find out that I made the worst mistake of quitting my job to work here. No training and God forbid you make one mistake your fired on spot, They set you up for failure. Someone gets fired and the entire dept knows why. Very uneasy feeling about working here. Looking to put my two weeks notice very soon not a stable place to be at. At least in this dept. Manager look at you like your stupid when you ask questions.
I worked in a very unorganized department. Manager was never around. Very little training and had nothing in writing to learn by. I wanted to get my foot in the door and was planning on transferring out of the department after the mandatory one year commitment to the department.
SUPPLIER SUPPORT / CUSTOMER SUPPORT REPRESENTATIVE (Current Employee) – Cypress, TX – October 4, 2013
Sysco in my opinion is a corporation that handles a large quantity of customers, internal as well as external. It is a laid back college type environment. My co-workers are great, my Team Leader / Supervisor is very supportive and the employees that I have encountered from other departments for the most part have been friendly too.

Complete all tasks on my agenda. Learn new areas of the SAP System that we utilize. Management is ok could be more informative and attentive to employees and the work assigned.
