Very informative and supportive administrative staff. Demands of the employment do not lend to work life balance. Too many requirements and quotas and KPI's that are unreasonable.

I very much enjoyed working here. The union is very fair, but some people took advantage of that. You'll find that everywhere, however. The pay is very attractive, but you have to work for it, and if you're able to meet their ELS standards, you can make a lot of money.Moving into the office, you're no longer in the union, but your wage is more than adequate, and your benefits are the same. The RRSP and retirement packages are incredible.Management can be a little bit of an old boy's club, but if you can look past that, it's well worth it.
Pros
Free test kitchen lunches once a month, great pay, excellent benefits, good people to work with
Cons
Long hours, very tough physical work, lack of advancement

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

Fun place to work, very busy! worst part is the lack of work life balance. Can make very good money if you work hard and go above and beyond for the customers.

I stared at 7:00 am, picking up the money from the warehouse to reconcile vs documents and make the deposit to be send to the bank. Issued, timely and accurate invoices for damaged products, delayed deliveries, admin fees, etc. Ensured all credit notes, vendor rebate cheques, and intercompany payments are applied to the correct vendor rebates/programs The hardest part answer all customer & vendor queries by email in 24 hrs. I learned dealing with urgent matters and sensitive information, critical thinking skills; highly accurate and detailed Ability to prioritize and follow procedures. The enjoyable part of the job was increase customer satisfaction and help other areas.
Pros
Great company and benefits

middle age drama from the management team, this is not a young persons place - too stuffy and not for the older crowd - no one lasts long enough to retire.
Pros

Sysco's customers are amazing! They are why I get up in the morning. Management is dismal at best. The work life balance is impossible given the work load put on its employees.

Is a fast paced environment which is updating itself. New programs and processes are being introduced on a regular basis and a person needs to adapt quickly.

I am a current employee of just over 10 years. Sysco Calgary is an amazing place to work. Supportive managment, competitive pay, work life balance and ongoing training and development both personally and professionally. Pay wise you start with a good salary and make more money based on your growth. You get out what you put in. I work with clients everyday and their successes are mine as well. As I said, great people, great place, great pay. Not to mention they have operating companies all over the world, so you can potentially go abroad and work for the same company. Lots of pros, not many cons..
Pros
Staff pricing on product, good pay, work life balance, supportive management. Endless opportunity.
Cons
There are times when the hours can be long but thats when you make more money!
