acctg area (Former Employee) – Baltimore, MD – July 21, 2016
Coworkers were very helpful and pleasant. Very fast paced environment in which you are also micromanaged. Corporate changes policies frequently and policies that are enforced change depending on the circumstance. Overall work moral is not good and a lot of turnover. A lot of daily duties required of you and not reimbursed accordingly. Human Resourses Dept. lacks in portraying correct information. Internal issues with deliveries and creates loss of business.
They seem to not appreciate a loyal employee and are laying off.
I have to say met some nice people and friendships continued after job ended.
Accountant I (Current Employee) – Cypress, TX – July 15, 2016
Does not pay well, but expects a lot of hours put in. Benefits are pretty bad, commute is great (Cypress location). Overall, the commute and casual dress code are not worth the poor pay, benefits and work/life balance. Plus, they are constantly making changes in their processes/procedures, and moving their employees into different roles. Lots of meetings but nothing gets done.
Employer is not bad, the customers are the problem.

There used to be more loyalty in sales and now it's all about the price. Sysco is a high quality kind of company and have the prices to go along with it. Unfortunately, many restaurants these days are not focused as much on quality and it's all about cost of goods sold.
Order Selector/Loader/fork lift operator (Current Employee) – Salt Lake City, UT – July 10, 2016
Working nights from 4 pm until everyone is done. About 2 am to 4 am.The pay is good if management doesn't screw you over to where you default ( make base pay, lose about $7 an hour). The job is expected to be hard. Moving cases constantly for 10 to 12 hours. But thats not the problem. Its all management that creates the worst work place. They dont run the crew right. They single people out and give them the hard work and cause them to make less. The more you know how to do for this company the less you make. You are better being a new person and dont learn any other positions other than order selecting. Thats where you will make the most. The company does promote within. But be cautious of what position you move to. In particular positions on the night shift.
Hourly wage, free drinks, benefits are great. Awesome CEO.
Management, they dont care about you or how they treat you. There is a bit of favortism.
Marketing Associate (Current Employee) – Denver, CO – July 9, 2016
At times, during busier periods, be prepared to correct issues as they occur from 4 am to 8 pm. Holidays are the busiest times for your clients so availability around holidays is key to success, taking vacations have led to loss in business. If you work hard and produce above expectation the compensation can be wonderful. Benefits and 401k match is as high as I have seen it. Huge company, lot's of potential for advancement.

INTERNAL CONTROL AUDIT SENIOR (Former Employee) – Houston, TX – June 26, 2016
Typical day is review of SOX and operational controls. Some special projects are available. Overall great teamwork, everyone is very helpful and understanding. I learned tons on internal audit and operations as my prior jobs were external audit jobs. Management is making changes and pushing forward. The hardest part of the job is the required 50% travel. The most enjoyable part of the job relates to the people I worked with.
