Credit Coordinator/Finance (Former Employee) – Acheson, AB – 6 December 2018
Was a great company to work for things changed with budgets and the economy Got told they were letting go upper management and we had nothing to worry about our jobs were secured. Come into work with HR at my desk my manager didn't even know they were letting me go as in laid off. I asked to go to my desk to collect my personal belongings was told no and I wasn't allowed to say good bye to anyone. I would not recommend Sysco.
Swamper (Former Employee) – Grande Prairie, AB – 1 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.
Pay, Good customers
Customers complaining, Stress, Putting up with truckers on a daily basis
Senior Marketing Associate (Former Employee) – Fredericton, NB – 19 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.

Quality Control Associate (Current Employee) – Calgary, AB – 23 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.
free meals, staff pricing on goods, potential movement within company
potential on call, work sundays for rotation shifts
Administrador de Ordenes (Former Employee) – British Columbia – 15 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, ON – 13 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.
Genuinely good people outside the four walls
Too much authority is given to departments that don't deal with the everyday noise.
Delivery Driver (Former Employee) – St. John's, NL – 11 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) – Toronto – 3 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.
Administrator (Former Employee) – Woodstock, ON – 30 September 2018
Sysco is a well organized company to work for. They have good processes, policies and procedures. A safety focused culture who care about their employees. Great opportunity for starting your career. Not much room for advancement.
