Fast paced, alway moving so the day went quick
Warehouse Associate (Former Employee) –  Pleasant Grove, CAJanuary 22, 2018
Working in the normal temperature part of the warehouse was fast paced and challenge but in time with practice you get the hang of it. The freezer was the exact same job but at 0 degrees which even with the proper gear on I could not do. I was a layoff from my previous employment and needed anything to help pay the bills.
Pros
Fast paced, good people to work with and for.
Cons
The freezer is unbearable

Sysco not a company you want to work for.
Route Driver (Former Employee) –  Des Plaines, ILJanuary 22, 2018
The management did not work together with employees to benefit the production of the delivery process to customers. They did not treat employees with respect of how hard we worked for the company.

Customer Service (Former Employee) –  Fargo, NDJanuary 22, 2018
Fast paced place to work, usually something different each day. Lots of info to pass on to get items taken care of, could see where teamwork is essential and getting complete correct info helped solve issues.

Business Technology Support Specialist (Current Employee) –  Charlotte, NCJanuary 21, 2018
I for the most part, enjoyed my time at Sysco. What you face in a day can vary. Everything from access issues network problems. The onsite team shares support of the local office with groups in Texas and other parts of the world.
Pros
Variety of support issues
Cons
Opportunity for growth

Category Planner (Current Employee) –  Memphis, TNJanuary 21, 2018
Working at Sysco is a very fast paced environment. You must be able to keep you and it and be quite stressful. It is very difficult to maintain a work life balance.

Bad management
Truck Driver Class A (Current Employee) –  Houston, TXJanuary 21, 2018
I am expected to do the job of three because my boss doesn’t want to speak up. Other locations have two to three people doing what I do but my location wants to save money and overwork me.

Forklift Operator/sheer (Former Employee) –  Carlinville, ILJanuary 21, 2018
Working here you are an extension of the machines. If your not working as hard as the line is pumping your not working up to pace. Have to be fit and ready for a challenge.
Pros
Straight shift with overtime
Cons
Downtime could be more

Good job for young guy.
Delivery Driver (Current Employee) –  Jacksonville, FLJanuary 20, 2018
Good company. Very hard job. Overall the company is a good place to work. My skill and ability are being wasted doing a delivery job. I enjoy the customers and satisfying their needs. No where to move up as a driver. The job is for no one over the age of 40.
Pros
Customers
Cons
Pain
