Bad Management
Service Coordinator (Former Employee) –  Mississauga, ON28 October 2019
Staff members were great and very positive about changes. Transportation and operation manager did not want fleet department to succeed. Used 3rd party vendor that their own people were not even qualified to work on equipment but if you say anything about that you get fired. Management needs to learn the process of running fleet not just customer service.

The big fish in the pond that doesn't want to feed but will eat the most unless you speak up.
Anonymous (Former Employee) –  Mississauga, ON21 June 2019
Employer that does not actually practice work/life balance even though they say they promote it, will try to maximize the work while providing the least amount of compensation and rewards. Recently underwent a restructuring. Do not actually address employee concerns and minimal organizational communication provided top-down.

Can make a lot of money at the risk of permanent disability
AZ Truck Driver/order picker/forklift operator (Current Employee) –  Mississauga, ON25 January 2019
I have done every job at Sysco outside any office position. You can make a good money here if you want to work 60 hours a week and do permanent damage you your body in the process. Very hard job physically and is definitely not for everyone or anyone who wants long time employment. Management does care about you or your safety, all they care about is if the customer gets their product, all else is trivial to them.
Pros
Can make good money, had decent benefits
Cons
Will destroy your body

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.

A lot of fun
Merchandising Assistant (Former Employee) –  Mississauga, ON29 August 2018
The job was interesting because it did not limit me and did not allow me to be repetitive as there are always new challenges. Consistency of new challenges had really allowed me to grow professionally and had given be strong organizational skills.
Most importantly the management was very nice, kind and happily answered any questions that i may have had regarding work.

Productive place and fun to work there.
Order Picker/Packer (Former Employee) –  Mississauga, ON1 May 2018
6.30am in the freezer, work begins progressively till 2 or sometimes 3pm. I learned how to be organized and work to time. The management structure is very friendly. Lateness is not tolerated and the safety of workers is key. The breaks are very fun.

Stable work environment
Warehouse Manager (Current Employee) –  Mississauga, ON5 August 2016
Sysco is an industry leader which offers a stable working environment, both at the associate and management level. The operations staff are unionized and leadership requires a great deal of diplomacy to achieve success.

Sysco Toronto, Order Selector
Order Selector (Current Employee) –  Mississauga, ON17 March 2016
The typical day at work includes a pre-shift meeting with the management and supervisors to go over the daily safety topics and other issues in the business.

Your shift starts out by doing a safety check on the equipment you are using to ensure proper policies are followed in order to prevent accidents or any unsafe conditions. A machine must be approved on all conditions before use.

Once you are set up you get your first order and begin building up your skids. You can work in either Dry, Cooler or Freezer environments where you select cases in order to build skids for what each customer needs. Your progress is tracked based on your scanner and the time it takes you to complete an order and drop it off on the dock for shipping.

Management provides good insight on what to do to ensure proper selection of cases and how to keep the customers happy by placing the boxes safely on the skid to avoid damage.

All employees work together to ensure safety, using our truck's horn to signal properly and co-exist without crashing into each other or our surroundings.

The hardest part of the job would be the physical strain it can put on your body. Lifting is very important in that you should use proper lifting technique to avoid soreness and/or injuries.

Repetitive motion can wear you down so it is very important to take care of your body in order to do this job well. Recommended spending time at the gym, eating properly and getting enough rest.

The most enjoyable part of the job is that your co-workers are very helpful and good people. They can easily become good friends
  more... and make the work environment enjoyable.

You are also paid fairly well considering this job does not require extensive education, but the physical toll it puts on you makes it worth it.

Working the night shift can be rewarding for part-timers as it provides good income for a student who has classes during the day.

Although not everybody is a night owl, some people enjoy driving home when the roads are clear as opposed to rush hour.
