Sysco is alright for a little bit
Swamper (Former Employee) –  Grande Prairie, AB1 December 2018
The pay is decent for the work you do. It sucks putting up with the truckers. It starts to catch up to you, on your stress levels, and physical body. I’m glad I threw in the towel a second time, in under a year.
Pros
Pay, Good customers
Cons
Customers complaining, Stress, Putting up with truckers on a daily basis

Senior Marketing Associate (Former Employee) –  Fredericton, NB19 November 2018
You work to your customer's schedules, that involves weekends and holidays, early mornings, and sometimes late nights.
Chefs can be moody, you need to find the relationship that binds you to acquire the business.
Pros
Home office
Cons
Long hours

FINANCE (Former Employee) –  Winnipeg, MB18 November 2018
Good company to work for. Work life balance is good. Management is reasonable. Job security is good. Regional office is small, so may not have a lot of room to move around.

Delivery Manager (Former Employee) –  Coquitlam, BC9 November 2018
Overall a good company, leadership can change quickly and can be inconsistent from one to another.

There are some awesome locations with great culture and then there are other locations where the culture is very bad.
Pros
associate level people are fantastic
Cons
Leadership level is okay with losing good loyal people to make an extra $

productive and fast pass environment
Quality Control Associate (Current Employee) –  Calgary, AB23 October 2018
daily checks, reports and inspections of inbound produce, maintaining product on hand and replies to all email inquires regarding product integrity. An increased product knowledge, keen eye for details and so much more learned from here. Close group of people that are fun to work with. Most enjoyable part of the job is the staff you get to work with and the staff pricing on products able to purchase.
Pros
free meals, staff pricing on goods, potential movement within company
Cons
potential on call, work sundays for rotation shifts

The worse job ever
National Account Manager (Former Employee) –  Toronto, ON22 October 2018
Learnt a lot around how to manage expectations, but the workplace overall is toxic, too many associates that are not capable of doing the job, so you end up picking slack for others.

Ambiente y Trato adecuado a los empleados
Administrador de Ordenes (Former Employee) –  British Columbia15 October 2018
- Un día típico de trabajo consistía en hacer las tareas asignadas con los compañeros de trabajo en un ambiente adecuado y con supervisores que te hacían mejorar cada día en tu desempeño. Aprendí a realizar mis labores correspondientes de manera rápida y eficaz gracias a los compañeros de trabajo que tienen mas experiencia y a los supervisores de turno.

Very stressful place to work and very little support from upper management
Operations Manager (Former Employee) –  Mississauga, ON13 October 2018
Very little support from upper management and a very inconsistent place to work when upholding rules and policies. Management is barely supported by the Human Resource department and this is the biggest mistake Sysco makes in my opinion. The company tries to make everyone happy, but in reality that is impossible and creates a worse environment.
Pros
Genuinely good people outside the four walls
Cons
Too much authority is given to departments that don't deal with the everyday noise.

Great Experience for New Drivers
Delivery Driver (Former Employee) –  St. John's, NL11 October 2018
If you are a new driver Sysco is a great place to work, you really learn how to get around the city in a big truck. Great co-workers. The hardest part of the job was the physical demands on your body, but if you can stick with it it will get you into fantastic shape.

Az delivery driver (Former Employee) –  Toronto3 October 2018
Very disappointed with this Company. I had only 40 hrs left from my probation period and they dismissed me. They have just used me for 5 months and as soon as the business started getting slow they started getting rid of new people who are not unionized. Be careful guys before you start working with them this place is full of politics and back stabbing. Very hard work and you get all garbage deliveries for couple of years. It is based on seniority and they have many old people who been working from last 10 years or so. All downtown calls are downstairs or upstairs which drained out all the energy. I would recommend that get incorporated and work for your own business. I only like about this job is my co- workers.
Pros
Good pay
Cons
No job security
