Business Lead, IT Security Administration (Former Employee) – Houston, TX – October 2, 2015
IT within Sysco is very fast paced and challenging, as they are always trying to stay on top using the newest technology available. There are many opportunities for advancement provided you have the right skill sets. The most enjoyable part of the job was working with my team members and colleagues.

Route Truck Driver - Temp (Former Employee) – Philadelphia, PA – October 1, 2015
YOu get thru the class room, must unload trailer via handtruck of pallet, training is ok, you make good money but they are all about speed and efficency,. if your slow or take your time they will let you go. Overall the money is great there. they work in all weather, they dont care if its 16 inches of snow you must come in to work on time and expect to go out. zero tolerance.
union after 90 working days
zero torelence for lateness on deliveries, working in all weather
If your considering Sysco Corporation as your next move you should consider that this is an ever changing organization. Opportunities for learning are good and trending better. Advancement opportunities are available but dependent on pedigree, perception, exposure, and performance.
Delivery Driver (Former Employee) – Central Islip, Long Island NY – September 25, 2015
This place is like a puppy mill. Capitalism at its best. Poor management and lock of trucking experience is very visible at every corner of the business model. If you are a Pro-Trucker who takes pride in being safe and DOT compliant this is not for you. However, if you are a new driver and have limited experience than it might work. It might work not because it is a good job but you don't know enough to know. This was my shortest employment. They will make you sign bunch of papers about safety and make you take safety programs to cover their rear. They will do anything and everything to make you work faster. They won't do anything about the unsafe delivery locations and still be evasive to cover their rear if something happens to you. I also see some positive reviews here about the company. They must be from fake accounts. Very high turn around within CDL-A drivers.
Inventory Specialist (Former Employee) – Front Royal Va – September 21, 2015
I worked a Sysco since April 2005. I loved the environment. My co-workers were patient and management was very involved in helping the workers to be successful. I love to be a team player so always volunteered to help others when I was not busy. My days seemed to go by pretty fast because I always stayed busy and always stayed on task. The hardest part of my job in the beginning was learning the systems. The most enjoyable part of my job were the cookouts in the summer. I was flexible and volunteered to work overtime or stayed after hours to make sure the job was done.
Business Technology Support Specialist (Former Employee) – Baraboo – September 19, 2015
I worked at Sysco for almost a year and during the time found the Office culture to be very good, however, the upper management at Sysco Corporate for IT is out of tune with their employees. While the benefits and compensation is good, the work life balance is horrible and when you start in a job there, you are setup for failure. Adding to that, I was also cheated out of one week's pay by Sysco.
Upper Management mentality, HR does not work with you to resolve issues.
Work place where driver can deliver with less customer contact
Class A Delivery Driver (Former Employee) – Oxnard, CA – September 18, 2015
I am a very great delivery driver but to be honest i believe id like to work for a company where we could make the deliver and let the sales dept deal with any issues that might come about with customer. Unfortunately company's that deliver when customer is present usually takes everything out on the driver. Drivers can not control mistakes made by warehouse or sales but have to resolve there errors and listen to the customer which takes time from the route and put other devilries pending behind schedule. The thought of working for a union was a positive thing for me after working for the company it is the reason why co workers don not work together because everyone is too prideful about there senority they dont allow new comers to be comfortable. I like to concentrate on my job and i am not very talkitive sometimes people might take that as a bad attitude but when i come to work its time to work and not there to be the most like or whatever.

Wouldnt want to work for sysco again. in the arizona location, the heat was pretty rough and there was a huge change going on with the us foods merger. once the merger didnt go through, alot of lay offs happened.
