First off, the co workers (Drivers) are awesome! Best group of guys to work with! Wish I could say the same about the management. Your day typically starts anywhere from 5-6 am to 4-5pm. Tannis used to be a great place to work and you could control the pace of your run because your trucks skids were loaded in order. Now you are scanning every box with a scanner and the new system has the stops buried in the 6 foot high skids so you are down piling all day and behind on your run trying to look for mislabeled boxes or boxes that are buried at the very bottom of the skid. If you enjoy deadlifting/intense lifting (un needed stress) then this is the job for you!

Heavy lifting and slowly injury your back
Bringing loads in a wheeler weigh about 300lbs ,hand bumming stuff, going upstairs and downstairs with a loaded wheeler, old and not maintained trucks that consistently break down but they will blame it on the driver.

Management always rushes you to finish the job very quickly, you wouldn't even get any breaks from 7-3 shift.


You will get written up for overtime.

They call late the night before youre scheduled to work between 4-6am. Don't have any care for safety although they say they do. Not organized at all. They go through management like an alcohol goes through liquor. Every month the people you report to are no longer working there and the new employee has no idea about previous arrangements or how runs usually go. Dispatch is horrible as well. No cb's aloud in trucks or Bluetooths. No sleeper cabs for long distances. All in all a complete waste of time if you're looking for long term employment. You'll be lucky if they keep you for over two years. Don't trust a person at this company. Not even co-workers.

The most enjoyable part of the job was learning how to drive and deliver safely within the Victoria district. This is an important aspect of the industry, but not the most important.
Customer service was 1 of the most important factors working at Sysco. As a driver you are the face of the company and dealing with all requests or issues relating to the delivery is a learned trait. The company had a lot of great people to work, and train with making learning the most enjoyable part of the job.
Pros
Free food
Cons
Regular changes of management

It's an ok place to work.
Unfortunately, like a lot of big corporations, they care more about the bottom line than their employees.

Very long hours. .
Pros
Good pay
Cons
Long hours. Bad equipment.

Good job with high pay, benefits, etc but physically demanding, they put new drivers on a different route each day where driver needs to know where to park semi, what door to enter, where to put order... 26,000 lbs of food delivered by hand, with truck driving between each stop is hard work

I enjoyed working for Sysco. They are a good company and they are always on time. I gained a lot of experience with them over the passed year from pulling b-trains to pulling 53ft trailers.
