Accounts Receivable & Earned Income Analyst
Earned Income Analyst (Former Employee), Houston, TXJanuary 24, 2014
Pros: great benefits
Cons: the pay
During my position at Sysco. I had duties such as accounts receivable, and a supplier audits. I was able to learn how to balance multiple tasks at once and adjust to the environment that I was in. All though I find pleasure in taking on difficult situations working with my co-workers, I can learn and achieve the task set before me. The hardest part – more... of my job is not always being able meet the customers’ needs. I always enjoy interacting with my customers and co-workers. – less

you spend more than you make
Marketing Associate (Former Employee), FL and MIJanuary 20, 2014
Pros: you used to make decent money
Cons: they could care less about outlying areas.
Worked there 26 years. The first 24 it was a great place to work. Now they could care less about you or your family. Very expensive to run your route. Unacheiveable quotas in order to make your bonus. Monthly meeting are a waste of time. Make promises that they never keep. If they make any promises, get them in writing.
Upper management that were never – more... successful in sales telling you how to sell. – less

very exciting, fast paced team environment
Current member of Local 294 Teamsters Brotherhood (Former Employee), Halfmoon, NYJanuary 8, 2014
overall a typical day at sysco was very long and physically demanding. I learned how to work at a fast pace and still do work effeciently because if I made errors I would not be paid my incentive bonus. I enjoyed working with a diverse amount of co-workers older and younger but all with the same goal at hand. The hardest part of the job was working – more... the long hours day after day. My most enjoyable part of the job was working with my peers. – less

Marketing Associate
Marketing Associate (Former Employee), San Francisco, CAJanuary 8, 2014
Pros: learn the ins and outs of restaurants. where to eat.
Cons: it's like robbing people. $4 broom for $40.
After your face to face orders you will spend the rest of the day prospecting. This is a commission based job so if you don't sell you don't eat.

Night shift selector in face paced work environment
Selector/ Operations (Former Employee), Portland, MEJanuary 1, 2014
Pros: 401k, company stock options, health insurance, work incentive
Cons: coworkers and managment
*Typical night- Selecting product from dry/cooler warehouse, operate pallet jack, stack product on pallets, drop off pallets in loading dock.
*Not much learned from job.
*Management- laid back but pushed numbers (cases per hour, work faster, pick accurately), but rarely addressed issues between employees. Management was almost too laid back, only addressed – more... issues after there was an incident.
*50/50 on co-workers. Some were cool, others... not so much.
*The hardest part of the job- small warehouse with lots of selectors working at various speeds made for a hostile work environment. Inexperienced selectors hitting other coworkers with pallet jacks, fights were common.
Getting additional pay incentive for extra cases selected an hour also fueled tempers between faster and slower selectors. Lots of racial tension. Management addressed some issues poorly.
Had the night off before Christmas, Thanksgiving, and 4th of July, but had to work the nights of each holiday.
*Enjoyable Part of the job- Pay day, incentive paid in cases per hour and selecting accurately. – less
