Marketing Associate (Former Employee), Albuquerque/Houston – June 10, 2013
Pros: flexibility and self management
Cons: no compensation for mileage, cell etc..until filing taxes
Plan and execute sales calls with current customers. Take orders, find out needs and make sure penetrating account and becoming a partner not an order taker. Plan cold calls or ways to bring on new business. Place order's make sure to be accurate as to avoid issues upon delivery. Collect money, educate and train. Management was exceptional; co-workers – more... where competitive helping to motivate and succeed. The hardest part of the job was to avoid a will call. The most enjoyable part of the job was watching my customers succeed and grow as their partner. – less
Great Place to finish your career, dont start there.
Talent Acquisition Partner II (Current Employee), Cypress, TX – May 7, 2013
Great Culture, Great pay ! Horrible HR. Many of there investigations where handle very improper. If work there, do your job and leave. don't depend on HR to handle any of your complaints or charges. Also there are people who have been in same position for over 10years very little room for advancement.
Supply Planner II (Buyer) (Current Employee), Cypress, TX – April 29, 2013
The atmosphere and the people are great at Sysco. As a supply planner II (buyer), you are very busy and the day goes by fast. The hardest part of the job is that things are constantly changing and responsibilities can fluctuate at any time. I continued to learn buying practices and added to my SAP knowledge.

Enjoyed the foodservcie sales careers and hospitality industry
Sales Rep/Territory Manager (Former Employee), Oklahoma City, OK – April 5, 2013
Pros: self gratifying - all of it!
Enjoyed creating sales territories in the foodservice industry earning decent money but disliked the eventual territory re-alignments which were common place for every distributor I worked with. The restaurant business was really satisfying as you gave people experiences that were rarely found, The only bad part of restaurant management back then was – more... I worked over 90 hours in six days every week and all holidays. – less
Good company to work for, benefit wise. Their pay structure was off-balance.
supervisor/warehouse (Former Employee), Jacksonville, FL – March 28, 2013
Cons: having your money played with
Energetic and productive day of inventory control and customer satisfaction of order process and loading trucks. Team spirit was high, but pay structure brought down overall team morale. Hardest part was the physical labor; most enjoyable part was the collaboration of man-power and team work to see a job well done.

Director Safety, Loss Prevention, Risk Management (Former Employee), Miami and West Palm Bch of Florida – March 10, 2013
Pros: management support which was second to none.
Cons: the traveling
Director safety, Loss prevention, Risk management and workers compensation. Review all the above entities with management team and associates. The learning experience was a constant educational structure. Management support was the best ever experienced by a company and there was constant accountability. Co-workers were really concerned about themselves – more... and there co-workers. Hardest part of such position was a schedule of 24/7 Most enjoyable was teaching 700 associates on a monthly basis and teaching all new associates, This company was respected tremendously by myself because of their awareness of what asset protection meant as far as saving revenues and protecting there greatest asset, the associate. – less
Warehouse Supervisor (Former Employee), Poway, CA – March 9, 2013
Pros: good benefits
Cons: there was not really any cons
A day at Sysco was different everyday. It was not, as if it was the same issues all the time. I was taught a lot on managing people and getting the most out of them. I found, if you would treat the employees the way that you would like to treated, you would get more productivity out of them. Seeing that happen was the most enjoyable
