Friendly and fast-pace environment that requires outgoing associates and attention to detail.
Master Data Specialist- SAP Vendor SME-Lead (Current Employee), Houston, TXMarch 26, 2014
From the time I sit at my desk at 7:oo am I am non-stop on the go until the end of business. Often before I realize it, I am working well over my 8 hours. I have learned that 8 hours in a work day is simply not enough! The management styles practiced here let each associate handle their day to day tasks with little to no input. Management is trusting – more... and has confidence in the associates they have placed in each role. On the other hand, if there is an area of opportunity for an associate, management provides the proper tools for the associate to be successful. Each team member brings different talents and strengths; together we all work very well and are always willing to assist with any task or project given. Honestly, the only difficult part of the job is not having the opportunity for advancement. I would like to work for a company that has opportunities for hard working associates work towards a promotable opportunity. – less

Great place to work, but fast paced environment
Freight Handler/Receiving Clerk (Former Employee), Belleville, MIMarch 25, 2014
Pros: good pay, plenty of overtime
Cons: constant climate changes
The work place was fast moving and never dull. Unfortunately they later asked me to work hours that conflicted with my school schedule. Promotions are frequent if you show skills necessary in higher management positions. Friendly and generally decent people. Some of the more difficult parts of this job were things such as the heavy lifting and climate – more... changes as you may end up working in the freezer one moment and dry dock the next. – less

Ok place to work
N/A (Former Employee), Kent, WAMarch 6, 2014
Pros: large corporation
Cons: to many to name
Not a good place to work, sr leadership is inconsistent and cannot be trusted, the company as a whole is the most unprofessional environment in all aspect from the way the employees dress to the d├ęcor. HR is unreliable, unprofessional and unpredictable, other than a paycheck there is no appreciation for hard work, dedication and loyalty

Would not reccomend this company
not going to say (Former Employee), Denver, CO.March 5, 2014
Pros: yummy food from amazing chefs!
Cons: human resources interaction is like being treated as if you are a terrorist or a maggot
No training at all. Management is never in the office to assist in making decisions yet you are held 100% accountable for your work with little to no instruction or expectations. Allow "senior" employees to treat co-workers poorly without reprimand. If you aren't in the "it crowd" your not accepted or praised for your work even though it's better than – more... the favorites. By far the worst experience ever with any employer. – less

Over Night Selector (Former Employee), Des Plaines, ILMarch 5, 2014
Pros: great job to stay fit.
Cons: had no time to enjoy life outside of work.
A typical day at work was non-stop running and lifting. Great way to stay fit if you didn't want to pay for a gym membership.

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
