Environmental Health & Safety Work Term Student (Former Employee) –  St. John's, NL30 May 2018
I was fortunate to have a work term placement with Sysco for 8 weeks. The staff were very supportive, friendly, and knowledgeable. During my short stay, I was able to complete projects that were very fun and important to the company.

Unfortunately my placement was unpaid and there was no future position available for me
Pros
Great Staff, Friendly Environment, Professional
Cons
Unpaid

Transportation/Fleet maintenance Supervisor (Former Employee) –  Edmonton, AB17 May 2018
Drivers and warehouse personnel are overworked. Rarely do people feel a sense of accomplishment as they can never finish the tasks they're issued within the time constraints.

Order Picker/Packer (Former Employee) –  Mississauga, ON1 May 2018
6.30am in the freezer, work begins progressively till 2 or sometimes 3pm. I learned how to be organized and work to time. The management structure is very friendly. Lateness is not tolerated and the safety of workers is key. The breaks are very fun.

Rush all the time
Order Picker (Former Employee) –  Winnipeg, MB13 March 2018
Pay scale is not bad, but not worth it when compared to the work they expect from you as a order selector. Just think of being at a war everyday go go go like a machine for numbers they want from you. They keep u part-time for about 3-4 years to get the best use of you moving hours and workdays here and there according to how much work they have and then consider you full time if u can last. Good luck man.
Pros
pay scale
Cons
hard, night job

the worst

One of the worst managed places I have worked at. The two main warehouse managers have zero respect for the hard working employees. Human resources is just as useless.

Garage place to work
Warehouse Associate (Former Employee) –  Winnipeg, MB15 February 2018
This place sucks the big one. They treat you like a machine because that’s what they want. They may pay well but good luck having a healthy body after working there. I’m telling all of you, if you can work elsewhere than do so, it’s not worth the pay.
Pros
Pay
Cons
Everything else
