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

Great customers, terrible management
Account Executive (Current Employee) –  Calgary, AB22 July 2017
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.

A great place to start and the skys the limit
Marketing Associate (Current Employee) –  Calgary, AB22 October 2016
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!
