Challenging and rewarding with opportunities to advance and learn new responsibilities
I worked there for 10 years and learned many new skills. It is a fast pace environment with lots of changes and challenges. Opportunities to advance and learn new programs, etc are a big part of the culture there. The management team is friendly, helpful and always available to assist. I looked forward to going to work everyday. The hardest part of my job was when I did not have the resources I needed in order to complete a task and sometimes technical support was difficult to obtain in a timely manner.
Typical day would involve setting up meetings, taking minutes, preparing reports, presentations, managing company credit card, reconciling and coding credit card charges to departments, getting computer access for new associates, organizing company events throughout the year as well as booking travel for executive team. It was a great place to work and if another suitable opportunity opened up, I would definitely apply.
Pros
Gym accessible to all Associates
Cons
Occasionally getting support required to accomplish goals

Physical Work
Very difficult work, very physically demanding, you start off as part time basically you have to earn your stripes from management to qualify for full time , for a place like that should be union, but work you are always watched when you enter the building, they know each move you make, your break time for lunch is cut too 18 mins from parking your pallet jack and taking off your gear,
The days off basically is work 3 days have a day off than come back than 2 days off, and you start off in graveyards.

Great place to work
I worked for sysco 17 years Starting in the warehouse as an order selector then moved on to driving a tractor trailer unit doing local deliveries. Top notch outfit from management to all levels. Great pay benefits, and hours of work 4 on 3 off. If anything needed repaired it was taken care of. Penske took care of the fleet new equipment all the time

OK job if you live at home with your parents.
Dead end job, no chance of making enough money to live off of. If you just want a few bucks spending money then this is the place for you. Early start time and off early most days, but you may only work one day a week.

Horrible work environment and horrible pay.
I don't even know where to begin. They're liars that do kot care about you as a person. I wouldn't ever consider working for this company. Constant stress and unqualified managers breathing down your neck. Lots of travel and zero expense coverage. Avoid this company.

Not family friendly
If you are married with kids then do not apply. Sysco places money over family.
You are working 7 days a week. Bringing your work to the cottage on the weekend is the norm.

When you work hard to build an account and a great relationship with your customers. Sysco will take your account and turn them over to inside sales and you lose that profit. If you want to stay healthy then stay away. Your health will decline. Too many of my former associates are sick and miserable now.

I would not recommend this business for employment.
No care for their employees and the places they send you has some of the worst people I have ever met in my life.
Management is nonexistent, you are basically on your own and there is now training on Company specific applications.

Struggle
Unfortunately the site is driven by ego, intimidation and fear. Managers are not leaders and vision is limited to quarterly financial reporting. Poor fiscal performance and lack of leadership mean seriously job security

Very fast paced, hard work, good pay
The work is physical and demanding, and a high pace is required to get the mist out of your time, but the pay is really excellent and the management is willing to accommodate students.

A lot of internal politics within the various work teams
Silo driven culture with many competing requirements and senior management from each department will look internally and not focus on the big picture and what is best for the company in general

Fast paced. High expectations. Results driven
Sysco pays fairly. However the expectations are very high. Pace of work is fast and demanding. Home life balance is difficult. Very high performing staff and management teams. Extremely competitive environment

Bad management
Only good part was the pay was decent but that's just because of the high turnover rate. Managers are horrible. I've never had such bad leaders in my life. I would get thrown from nights to days in an effort to fix other staff issues. Half the people dont speak English at all so theres no room for communication and everyone constantly is all for themselves and never helps anyone no matter how horrible things get. Their drivers dont even know procedures. Dont even get me started on rules and policies are not good either. If you want to be video taped constantly and have people chew you out and not be able to defend yourself this is the place for you !!!
