Sysco pays fairly. However the expectations are very high. Pace of work is fast and demanding. Home life balance is difficult. Very high performing staff and management teams. Extremely competitive environment

working at Sysco was one of the worst experiences of my life. people in management try to force people to work overtime, everyone is mean-spirited and the overall work atmosphere is awful.
Pros
free turkey at Christmas
Cons
everything

Overall good place to work. There is some high pressure sometimes but that's the same for any workplace. There are some really fantastic people working there.

You are required to work long hours, doing very hard labour which is fine because you are compensated for it. However, you're forced to wear a computer on your atm that measures your efficiency and if you're not maintaining 95% efficiency on a nightly basis, you're fired. Fear tactics are used to make you work longer hours when mandatory isnt called. The union is a joke, their purpose is to protect the employees but this is taken advantage of by lazy old timers so the company is constantly at odds. Lots of employees who pretend to be your friend then rat on you to get you fired. The moral is so low that as a new employee on probation people are constantly telling you "dont get injured, keep your head down, dont get sick, come when called in etc" or you'll get fired. You're forced to sign a contract stating they can fire you any time within 1040 hours of work without a reason which is a time span that can sometimes last 4 or 5 months. I personally was fired a day before becoming unionized at this mark without a reason - likely having to provide job security, a raise and benefits. The night shift is truly poor
Pros
21 some odd dollars an hour
Cons
Forced contract 14 hour days, fear tactics, poorly unionized, no job security, people will attack your position for favor with higher ups

employees are required to work mandatory overtime where they have no idea when their shift may end. (14 hour work days, 5 days a week during summer time) while working these hours if employees use any sick days and/or do not maintain a 95% rate of efficiency you are fired.

I worked here for a summer while i was going to school. I liked the longer shifts and how there was lots of hours available. It was fun driving the electric pallet jacks around when loading your skids of food and produce for the orders you got.
Pros
10 hr shifts, lots of hours
Cons
lots of bending over picking up heavy boxes

Dayshift employees are the best that I have ever worked with. Honest, caring and decent people. I would recommend anyone of them as I had several years working along side them.
Pros
Great Dayshift Employees

terrible night shift. team moral is usually pretty low.management requires you to pick the same amount of pieces each night. If youre having a slower night, they,ll assign you picks to bring your piece count up.
Pros
free lunches.
Cons
night shift. Eating the same thing at each free lunch.

I loved the job and all the aspects of it. It continued to challenge you on a dad to day basis. the benefits and pay were among the best I've had and the management team is always there to help solving issues that arise.

Extremely challenging work environment. Negligible opportunity for advancement. Very profit driven, sometimes seemingly at the expense safety. Compensation/Benefits very competitive. Excellent work force.
