Make good money but thats it.
Truck Driver (Current Employee) –  Denver, COJanuary 29, 2017
If you work 60 hrs a week you can make good money. The management here is very hostile towards drivers they want you as close to 70 hrs a week as possible or they aren't happy even if you do your route for the week they still look down on you if you don't work Saturday's. They don't care if you have family. Their incentive pay is a joke.

Every day is a new challenge and experience that helps you grow as a person and in your career. Your co-workers are very supportive and management has an open door policy and will listen and guide you.

Long work days, Always on edge!!
Account Delivery Associate (Former Employee) –  Charlotte, NCJanuary 5, 2017
Long work days, your workday is always on edge daily. Management wasn't the best. They always add extra work to your workday regularly. Even though we worked 4 days you was on call for that 5th day and it wasn't pretty.
Pros
Good Pay, 4 day work weeks
Cons
No Job stability

What you learned
Delivery Driver (Current Employee) –  Warners, NYFebruary 6, 2017
one of the most valuable things I've learned at Sysco is time management. We are given a certain number of tasks on a daily basis. And how you manage your time is key to how you will get paid. Given different incentives over the years and made me manage my time efficiently so that I can make the most amount of money with the daily tasks.

Professional employee centric company
Transportation Manager (Former Employee) –  Anchorage, AKFebruary 26, 2016
Due to industry norms the work day is long and fast-paced. I learned to adapt to change and be a innovative manager. Upper management was supportive, and encouraged growth when available. The office environment was light but filled will hard working motivated employees that want the success of all. The hardest part of the job was the heavy work load but the company supported a balance between work and life and that made the demand less of a burden, I enjoyed coming to work everyday.
Pros
good management, good benefits, stable company
Cons
heavy work load, long hours

Bust your butt for ingrates
Delivery Associate (Former Employee) –  Sysco SpokaneSeptember 21, 2016
I worked for SYSCO Spokane for 8 years, The management team that is in there when I left is truely useless. The VP of Operations got his job because of his daddy, That was a regional big wig before he retired. He made many mistakes in "changing for the better" and ended up being worse. The man has a serious Napolean Complex. He replaced the Transportation Manager with his Little Buddy from SLC. You can see where this is going. He has 2 weeks of driving experience and moved into running the show of drivers. They can not find or keep drivers. You will constantly be short drivers and have to work forced Overtime, along with being expected to be unpaid "on call". I think the job would be fine for a single guy that has no life. The routing is absolutely screwed up. You will be digging through pallets to get to the current stop product. It is sad that 60 percent of your drivers have been there less than 2 years. The most enjoyable part of the day is when you clock out and go home. Here is Sept and I have already made 60k, Thanks to OT. You will never see a 40 hour week. They constantly push you to go faster and faster while delivering. The safety director is a joke in himself.

Either you hate it or can stand it
Accountant (Current Employee) –  Cypress, TXJanuary 11, 2017
Sysco lures you in with fake promises. The workload is excessive and the compensation is minimum for such a large billion dollar company. Do not expect good things from Sysco.
Pros
Casual dress
Cons
Everything but casual dress

Terrible Culture

Union contract is very company biased. Union policies are more strict and anti-driver than company policies. Supervisors etc..are difficult and unresponsive to concerns. Co-workers are lazy and non professional.

Great Money as a driver!
Delivery Driver (Current Employee) –  Saint Charles, MONovember 13, 2016
You will make lots of money as a driver for sysco working 50-60 hours a week 12-14 hours a day. It is extremely hard and stressful so you will need thick skin to succeed. It can be done but its certainly not for everyone.
Pros
Money

Marketing Associate (Sales) (Former Employee) –  Los Angeles County, CAJanuary 8, 2017
Sysco is a leader in food distribution and has lots more to sell than
closest competitor .
Hardest working part was to constantly improving your total sale
