Order Selector (Former Employee) –  Winnipeg, MB9 August 2018
The pay is great but what you have to go through isn't worth it. A lot of kissing up to upper management,back stabbing,bullying and unrealistic work expectations make this a toxic enviroment. Avoid at all cost

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

Unpaid

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.

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.

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

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.
