Sysco has a great potential, but old ways of thinking, micro-management, inefficiencies, employee retention, & quality of life for associates make it difficult for them to excel. Be more open minded, trust your associates & let middle management do their jobs instead of holding the down and you could see great changes & efficiencies improved.
Flexible hours, Decent pay when raises are available.
A great deal of inefficiencies throughout that make the jobs more difficult for all
Finance (Current Employee) – Houston, TX – August 26, 2017
Sysco provides decent benefits, competitive with other national companies. They pay fairly for most roles that I am familiar with. Culture varies from group to group (department to department). I am fortunate to work with a great group of folks currently although I have worked in other areas that overwork you and under appreciate your efforts. Career advancement can be tricky. It works for some, but the requirements are definitely set differently for each individual. Your network (who you know) is far more important than the work you put in or the experiences and capabilities you may have.
Company changed atmosphere over the years but still good company
Night Warehouse Clerk/Manager Asst (Former Employee) – Harahan, LA – August 26, 2017
Originally over 15 years ago this was a great relaxed place to work. After change up in management from the high end on down to lower ranks it became more intense environment in being strictly about work and money. There was more money to be made which required a lot more efficient work processes.
Director of Transportation (Former Employee) – Tolleson, AZ – August 25, 2017
I have never experienced the political infighting that I witnessed in this organization anywhere including the military. Other department heads will appear cordial until you can't deliver something that they feel is a priority regardless of cost, feasibility and current regulations. Do NOT turn your back as there could be something sticking out of it!
Marketing Associate (Former Employee) – Modesto, CA – August 19, 2017
Some of the best training avalable in the industry.Probably tghe most valuable thin I got \from the job. Unfortunately they are being run by stockholdes and are killing off the salesperson ebecause of profits. There making not fun anymore.
Forklift operator/Case picker (Former Employee) – Atlanta, GA – August 18, 2017
this was a great job to be apart of. I worked a lot of hours in a fast passed environment with great wages and benefits. As long as you did your job there was no problems with management. My co-workers were helpful and knowledgeable about the day to day grind of the job. I enjoyed coming in everyday and looked forward to the day to day grind of what the job had to offer. I got a better understanding of time management and how to communicate better with my co-workers
Service Desk Analyst (Former Employee) – Cypress, TX – August 17, 2017
This was a good place for me to come and learn the basics of my job. The people where great and the management was ok. The only thing I didn't like was the fact they would work you half way to death and they outsourced almost all the positions that would pay well.
Sanitation Technician (Former Employee) – Front Royal, VA – August 17, 2017
A good place to work. Good people to work with and good management. Time went fast in a typical 8 hr. Day. Good pay and benefits. Company events were held throughout the year for employees and their families.
Sysco Memphis was not founded on the basis of inclusion. The sales force is comprised of 4 minorities out of 367. All decisions within the company are based on "like-ability" rather than are you qualified for the job. HR Dept is a complete joke and lack the competence to be engage with the employees. Cohesiveness and trust are obsolete within the company. The overall culture of the company is a antiquated and unproductive.
Frequent free meals, stock package, 401k
Lack of leadership, little to no managerial training, no room for advancement
Delivery Driver (Former Employee) – Syracuse, NY – August 16, 2017
Great company for benefits but the pay is low for the work you do! Loads are almost always messed up as loaders and pickers bury products under multiple cases so you handle the cases multiple times before they can be delivered.
Long hours, loads more often than not are horrible, poor inventory equipment
Competitive environment with opportunities to grow professionally.
Distributor Sales Representative (Former Employee) – Pittsburgh, PA – August 15, 2017
Sysco is a competitive workplace with opportunities to advance and contribute to a dynamic organization. Great internal support and tools / resources to help business owners grow and differentiate their businesses.
Good place to work and pay is great if you are a selector.
Outbound Warehouse Clerk (Current Employee) – Jackson, WI – August 14, 2017
If you are a selector you can make great money. I was told when I took the clerk position I would get quarterly reviews amd a yearly raise. Due to management dropping the ball, I worked my butt off the last year gor nothing as I found out that since they jave not given me my reviews, I am not eligable for a raise until next fiscal year.
I worked for this company for one year. The company is extremely using. They paid great and offered wonderful benefits. The management of the company is very unusual and not inviting for a long term position.
