it’s ok. not the best place to work.
Machine Operator (Former Employee) –  Northwood, OHJune 20, 2018
unfair wages, management doesn’t care, my supervisor played favoritism like crazy with other people leaving early when they missed a day. you work hard for nothing in return. people are nice sometimes. team work is a must here. it’s just a paycheck. some people overdo themselves and hurry up and some people do absolutely nothing but check their phones and play around.
Pros
money
Cons
favoritism, unfair wages, long hours

Pay and bonus structure was great at first.
Marketing associate (Former Employee) –  Grand Rapids, MIJune 20, 2018
The first year at Sysco was my best. Goals were attainable, bonus levels were reached. I didn’t mind not being paid much for my car or phone. After that first year and the following 3 years at Sysco each year was a new pay structure. They would make goals especially difficult to hit and bonuses were out of reach. They would say the new pay structure was to benefit the sales people but my check got smaller and smaller every year even though my sales increased substantially.
Pros
Food samples and discounts
Cons
Too may to name

Negotiated their way out of the job market.
Delivery Associate (Former Employee) –  Norman, OKJune 20, 2018
It started out as a great company to work for. The hourly wages have not kept up with the cost of living. Therefore, leaving the company in a poor position when trying to fill short positions. The benefits have been good as far as insurance, vacations, personal time off, etc.
Over the past 20 years, I've gone thru 9 Transportation managers ( the first one I had for 8 years), and 22 supervisors. The revolving door spins fast at Sysco. Which kills the desire for advancement.
Pros
Plenty of work
Cons
high divorce rate

Sysco overall is a good company to work for
Master Data Specialist (Current Employee) –  Cypress, TXJune 19, 2018
I would say for a good balance of work/home life Sysco is a good choice. They struggle quite a bit with technology or meaningful steps forward due to their low profit margins, but they try to do their best with what they have. Management seems to care and tries their best to advance your career within the company.
Pros
Work/Home Life Balance
Cons
Compensation, Software

Say goodbye to your family. Say goodbye to your body. Say goodbye to your sanity. Sysco brings out a level of stress that only the thickest of skin can take.

Delivery Driver
Driver (Current Employee) –  Atlanta, GAJune 7, 2018
Very hard work for truck drivers. Not a driving job. It's a delivery job. Very good pay. It's long hours and heavy boxes. It takes a while to get used to, but again the pay is worth it.
