dont have anything
Order Selector (Current Employee) –  Jessup, MDApril 2, 2017
Work was unrealistic and management didn't make it seem doable.
Hours were extremely long like 12 hours a day. You get written up for not being at a certain percentage even though your working well over 60 hours in one week.

Big Company feel both good and bad
Business Technology Support Specialist (Current Employee) –  Lewisville, TXApril 2, 2017
Job stability and benefits are exactly what you would expect from a company this size. Very hard to get fired unless you do something really stupid or just don't show up. Insurance is good for the most part although Obamacare has increased premiums on healthcare.

As I said, working for Sysco give you that stable (adult) job feel, but you can't get that "stability" without the inevitable treatment that you are just another number on their payroll.

Hard work frequently gets overlooked because of endless layers of bureaucracy. If you work for the corporate office, you will likely never even meet the person who could increase your salary or otherwise reward your performance. So get used to your direct manager saying "I'll see what I can do for you" when it comes to advancing your career or your paycheck.
Pros
stability, decent benefits, located everywhere
Cons
hard to stand out, pay increases are minimal/non existant without a formal promotion

Tough job that compensates fairly.
Warehouse Stocker (Former Employee) –  Denver, COMarch 27, 2017
It was an extremely tolling job, made more so by the overnight schedule. The job paid very well, but a certain level of job proficiency was expected very quickly. Would recommend for the pay, little else though.

Growing company
Senior Commercial Financial Analyst (Current Employee) –  Houston, TXMarch 27, 2017
Company is growing fast and a typical day at work is never the same any given day. The culture of the company is quite engaging. There is work/life balance and a level of flexibility.

The systems/servers need to be updated to work smoothly with any amount of data retrieved.
Pros
Great Benefits!!
Cons
Difficult to move up.

Awesome place to work. I enjoyed the company because they took really good care of their employees and the environment was always positive. Here, I learned to work fast and efficiently in a cold room environment.

Driver check in
Driver Check-In (Former Employee) –  Modesto, CAMarch 23, 2017
Its literally impossible to do the thngs management wants in 8 hrs. They discourage ot for this position. You are responsible for temping cooler items, you have to check in and return, cooler, freezer and dry while weaving through the order selectors. It seems that every week they try to add a new task on you. Pay is 15 an hour but after insurance, its more like 12. There is only one other person working this position so if they call in sick, you will be expected to fill their shift which means youll be coming in at 9 or 10 am instead of your scheduled, 1 2 or 3 pm. Management needs alot of help because they have no direction. Its a good job if youre single and have no kids. This modesto faciility is always hiring because theyre always firing. I was let go for too much overtime
Pros
benefits, coworkers
Cons
The other Driver check in associate sucks, lack of guidance

Great pay & Training
Marketing Associate (Former Employee) –  Washington StateMarch 21, 2017
My only real complaint is the job culture. Sales is very cut throat to begin with, but why bring a bad attitude into to work place or around other colleges? Also, when you accept a job with Sysco, be prepared to drive A LOT! They do not cover gas or mileage for your day to day business (or phone). I just figured my taxes for 2016 and I drove 11,586 miles in 8 months. I suggest having a very fuel efficient car. This job is not for the faint of heart - be prepared to put up with loads of corporate meetings, angry managers and nasty competitive coworkers.
All in all, it was a great learning experience for my first corporate job.
Pros
Great benefits, learning experience, great pay
Cons
Bad company culture

Marketing Associate (Current Employee) –  Kansas City, MOMarch 17, 2017
Great company with excellent benefits but there is no trust with their determination of commissions paid. Autocratic. They will allow a new District Sales Manager to keep their position regardless of the fact that he is disliked by all his reports.
Pros
Best product line and services in the industry, great benefits.
Cons
No consistent basis to determine comissions from, Have reduced commissions as a % of sales consistently over the last decade.

Calling on customers and prospects throughout a typical 7 hour workday. Manage any problems in an efficient manner. Suggest new products and services available. Make your own schedule for the most part.

Shuttle Driver (Former Employee) –  Somewhere southMarch 15, 2017
Poor management, this company wants too much from you and the compensation is not real good either you have to stand around for sometimes 3 hours per night just to make decent money. No real chance for advancement within unless you are a teachers pet. I did enjoy the people I worked with every night. Just done a lot of foot dragging to make a decent check.
Pros
Its a job
Cons
A lot
