A typical day at Sysco Food Services
Transportation Manager (Former Employee), Atlanta, GAFebruary 17, 2014
A typical day at work includes handling customer service related issues, driver related issues, assuring on time delivery of products, interviewing potential employees, managing drivers and supervisors.
During my employment I learned how to operate various job related systems on my own, which was challenging and rewarding. My job called for me to interchange – more... with management on different levels, such as the Vice President of Operations and company President, which enabled me to understand company goals and focus.
The hardest part of the job was learning how to manage a large number of employees with varying personalities because one type of management does not fit everyone.
The most enjoyable part of the job was multi-tasking and interacting with co-workers and management. – less

Regret resigning. Worked for other Food Distributors and they r clueless
DSM at Detroit, MI and Houston, TX (1987-2000) (Former Employee), Detroit, MIFebruary 12, 2014
Pros: benefits, people, work ethic, systems, products, training, pay, incentives, awards
Cons: corporate ego won't re hire former employees, you need type a personality or don't apply, you need to handle pressure and like it, pay is earned the good old fashion way, (sweat and hours)
Won lots of local awards and national recognition's. Promoted many times but was passed over a couple. Pay and incentives good as District Manager. Had to work hard and smart. This is not a job for a sissy you have to constantly be on top of everything. Left in 2000 from Sysco Detroit to US Foods and they were a disorganized mess. I QUIT Fast. Tried – more... private food distributors but they were mostly lackadaisical and inefficient. The grass is not greener at any other food distributor so don't get frustrated and keep working at whatever Sysco you are at. – less

Earned Income Analyst (Former Employee), Houston, TXJanuary 24, 2014
Pros: great benefits
Cons: the pay
During my position at Sysco. I had duties such as accounts receivable, and a supplier audits. I was able to learn how to balance multiple tasks at once and adjust to the environment that I was in.

The hardest part – more... of my job is not always being able meet the customers’ needs. I always enjoy interacting with my customers and co-workers. – less

you spend more than you make
Marketing Associate (Former Employee), FL and MIJanuary 20, 2014
Pros: you used to make decent money
Cons: they could care less about outlying areas.
Worked there 26 years. The first 24 it was a great place to work. Now they could care less about you or your family. Very expensive to run your route. Unacheiveable quotas in order to make your bonus. Monthly meeting are a waste of time. Make promises that they never keep. If they make any promises, get them in writing.
Upper management that were never – more... successful in sales telling you how to sell. – less

overall a typical day at sysco was very long and physically demanding. I learned how to work at a fast pace and still do work effeciently because if I made errors I would not be paid my incentive bonus. I enjoyed working with a diverse amount of co-workers older and younger but all with the same goal at hand. The hardest part of the job was working – more... the long hours day after day. My most enjoyable part of the job was working with my peers. – less

Marketing Associate
Marketing Associate (Former Employee), San Francisco, CAJanuary 8, 2014
Pros: learn the ins and outs of restaurants. where to eat.
Cons: it's like robbing people. $4 broom for $40.
After your face to face orders you will spend the rest of the day prospecting. This is a commission based job so if you don't sell you don't eat.
