Salary and benefits is top in the industry. Work life balance is poor and is a generally a non collaborative environment. Leadership is closed minded and communication from the top down is minimal.
Pros
Remote Work
Cons
Long hours, weekends, holidays

I enjoyed my time with Sysco Foods, the work environment was full of the industry's best and most talented people. This was a place I was able to learn a lot about myself and also grow professionally. Being surrounded by the best of best forces you to overachieve and better yourself everyday.

You are not a person. You are a position and a salary. They let people go with no notice only to replace you. Probably at a lower salary. Disregard for employees. Management looks out for management. HR is useless. Low moral. No appreciation.
Pros
Able to buy product for just above cost.
Cons
Management. HR. High turnover from them cutting salaries.

Employees are very hard working, long work days.Decent benefit package, but could do better. Always unexpected layoffs, heavy workloads, many deadlines to meet each week.

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.

At Sysco, you will never be looking for work. Management does not work to keep staff, and a high turnover means the drivers we have are overburdened. The equipment is barely maintained, the warehouse staff are overworked and underpaid, which makes your truck a mess when loaded. Your hours are long, overtime every single day. Very odd hours, you will get up before your spouse, and be home tired and in bed before suppertime. Not a family job.
Pros
High pay, lots of overtime, home daily
Cons
Long hours, intense labour, muscle injuries likely.

i currently work as an order selector in the warehouse in halifax, the company talks about safety all the time and training seminars, but in the 6 months i've been there we only did 1 little short training session, and that was only because the system went down. The management does not care about they're employees at all. They only care if you get your numbers, if you dont then they will fire you. I started in september 2014 and since I've been there they have fired 5 people because of theyre numbers and 12 people that started after me quit because they couldnt hit they're numbers. Sysco does not give you a chance to advance at all, they tell you they will train you on the forklift but they never do, the only perk of the job was the paying of incentive, but they changed it so much in 6 months that i was making 400$ extra a week to now i'm lucky to make anything becayse they want you to pick faster, scan more product labels, and not have any short on trucks. All in all sysco halifax employees have referred to the job as a slave movement, management takes takes takes but does not give anything in return.
Pros
nothing anymore
Cons
management sucks more and more each day

Very fast paced place to work, behind on the safety aspect of a work environment. wants to be informed of safety concerns just very slow to do anything about it. co workers were great to be around and very informative of the working culture and express their concerns freely
Pros

Cons
safety issues

Very large work load and an emense amount of responsibilty placed on certain employees (depending on the position), which was fine, however, there was very little administrative support made available making it very difficult to focus on, an implement, the main goals of the position - sales growth. Also, depending on the department, very poor management support which made the job extremely difficult to succeed in.
Pros
the ability to make your own agenda in order to grow sales, the ability to build important customer relationships
Cons
poor managment who offered very little support
