What you make it out to be (your mindset) It’s a company that depends on its customers orders. If there partners businesses slows down, cases slow down; It’s hard to determine how businesses are selling - because we’re customer based. That’s why Day to Day operation seems crazy; because of the dynamic; adjustment (workload, etc)

Your either selling, selecting, loading or delivering a products to a truck - it’s physical work and mentally demanding. If you want an easy job - stop looking as they DO NOT exist; even doctors experience complexities

Other team members do call out from time to time and we make do with our staff. We’re consistently hiring, training, mentoring; but with all that, the job isn’t for everyone. Beit Sysco or any type company / but Sysco does try and give their best!

Sysco is a very good company! They’re learning from mistakes and making it their priority to learn and correct them. This is a very large operation - with many many people working shifts and departments. For example: warehouse nights can have some 60 employees working with 4 Supervisors and transportation can have 100 drivers dispatched with 4 road supervisors - so, we try to get with everyone- but there are days it’s impossible.

Listen - no news is good news 😂

So all this said is to make sure you make a decision that is good for you and your family - please, do not take other experiences as it’ll be your experience. Sometimes, some people are just who they are - negative or can’t be pleased.

Being clueless at truck times. Not knowing if your customer is going to get there delivery today or if it will need to be rekeyed for the following day, and then to find out their driver ran out of driving hours the following day. It's embarrassing to look like a fool.

The workload, lack common sense causing very long days and poor work life balance. This company continues a downword spiral gutting from within to make the numbers. Mentally and physically you will be challenged greatly. After so long you will see if doesn't make sense its what they'll do. RUN AWAY!!!

Every aspect of this job is stressful. Sysco should be ashamed of how employees feel. This place is not worth the stress nor the pay. Go elsewhere.

When doing the job right and you get nowhere because upper management has their minds set on just numbers as far as sales go. Sysco Atlanta is biting off more than they can chew. Glad I got out of there when I did.
