Truck Driver (Current Employee) – Atlanta, GA – October 18, 2016
the job was okay. The good outweighs its bad. The money is good but its intense hard work. It's not for everyone.The hours are long.Management is laid back. For the most part they follow all DOT regulations.
6 day work week learned time management skills, organizational skills and multi tasking skills management is a bit out of touch with their sales force co workers are hard working and knowledgeable job wasnt hard if you kept your head in the right place dealing with the customers
Growing and thriving company. Great work opportunities for those who enjoy a very fast paced environment that's constantly seeking state-of-the-art technology and 100% customer service to all of its customers both internal and external. Very good experience for me over the past 10 years.
Customer Service (Current Employee) – Jacksonville, FL – August 6, 2016
They have a great benefits, excellent employer. The most enjoyable part of my day is working with customers. Most of my peers have been working at my facility for greater than 10 years, even 20 years. Great longevity, the staff takes pride it the work, and we know Sysco cares about their staff.
Driver (Former Employee) – Sysco Los Angeles – April 17, 2016
Sysco will run you into the ground. At night you will get a call from the dispatcher between 8-9 p.m to find out your start time the next day. Most time they would want you in at 2-3 a.m so off the bat your running on low sleep. Clock in pick your route if your on the extra board and go out the door to get your tractor and hook up your trailer. Most routes average 10-16 stops and 550-1000 cases. Routes can average 10-15 hours. Got 3 zones of pallets dry, cooler, and freezer. Pallets will have 2-5 stops on each pallet so you will be breaking pallets down and organizating all day long!!!! Loads are always jacked up, falling over, and breakage galore. This job will work you all day everyday if they need you except sundays. Work all holidays except thanksgiving and christmas. Think hard before you apply here, if its worth the money and benafits and your willing go ahead, but of you have a family you like spending time with STAY AWAY! They dont care about your family, they want you in that truck when they need you and no excuses! Glad I left one of the worse jobs I had!
Great pay & benafits
Working holidays, weekends and no schedule and start times for new drivers
Director of Sales (Former Employee) – Houston, TX – June 30, 2016
Sysco is the global leader in selling, marketing and distributing food products to restaurants, healthcare and educational facilities, lodging establishments and other customers who prepare meals away from home. Its family of products also includes equipment and supplies for the foodservice and hospitality industries.
Former driver for 2 years out of Central Florida, one of the largest. I loved the fellow drivers, and challenging routes. Must work nonstop fast and be very organized to break down the pallets for all the stops. divided into 3 sections: Freezer, cooler, and dry. Pay is excellent, but beat tired at night, so need understanding spouse. Each stop timed, if fall behind get "help" from a supervisor, who will only write you up. Drive cameras also record you all the time. The physical challenge and brainwashing micromanagement ultimately lead to my leaving, miss the 1500$ a week though.
Free food in breakroom, awesome Orlando area routes, everything drop and go, inside kitchens, do not have to deal with gas stations or grocery store managers
MERCHANDISER (Former Employee) – Walnut, CA – April 6, 2016
When i started with the company i was new to that end of the business and my manager took the time to work with me and train me to become what i did, buyer of the year after 2 years with the company some people had been there for over 20 years
The work can be dry, but there are plenty of opportunities to define what you'd like to do. The management and co-workers make for a fabulous work environment. There is no negotiation on vacation time, but they do offer a twice a month work from home program.
Employer is not bad, the customers are the problem.
Marketing Associate (Current Employee) – Baraboo, WI – July 13, 2016
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.
corpartate\ street sales (Former Employee) – Boise, ID – August 5, 2015
Great food company, awesome sales and warehouse support. Great benefits. Lots of supportive people. Very competitive industry. solid sales support. Can be a stress full position. Great co-workers. Very poor managing. Hardest part of this position was a very critical manager with no support or training.
Delivery Driver (Former Employee) – Jackson,MS – July 8, 2015
Great training, great pay, didn't recieve no uniforms or the proper equipment. Truck and trailer (if new) was for the ones who been there the longest and the ones they was (working on) or in "bad shape" was for the ones that came out of training. Dispatcher was terrible and management was terrible after you get hired on.
Bad management, poor conditioned trucks and trailers.
Night Warehouse Selector (Current Employee) – Billings, MT – December 2, 2015
A day usually consists of "batches that consist of either 50 to 200 plus products needing to be done in a timely fashion. I learned to push myself to work harder to secure my job. Management is excellent and really care's about every worker. The hardest part of the job is having to keep a consistent pace. The most enjoyable part is seeing your work through to the finish.
