My experience at Sysco was very positive I learned a lot about how to operate a tractor trailer and that brought me further in my career as a truck driver.
Pays well good benefits
Stressful fast pace
Don't quit your previous job,when you got job offer from sysco,they would not let you work. They will send you to training for a week with an abused person.he will regret you to work in this company. Very hard physically job,lack of knowledge and experience management.
Nonsense wrk deliberately aimed for you to fail!.......All of your deliveries are all mixed together on one pallet you have to dig just to find your stuff break your body for nothing
Everything! POOR MANAGEMENT! No support company does not care about you
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.
Regular changes of management
Started my driving career there at Lakeside, amazing staff and helping and caring. Professional attitude of drivers and get to know with people while serving local business es and representing Sysco... Feels great
Good salary and benefits and environment
Injury ain't worth it
The union protects the lazy man, the company bows to there needs, I never worked with a bunch of lazy people in all my life.0
Good employee food prices.
Management cant be trusted.(
Very hard work, lots of lifting, early morning start, high stress. Equipment breakdowns frequent, management not easy to work with, hard to get time off.
They treat you like a wok horse they work you 14 hour days you make a mistake they try to fire you supervisors are awful no experience equipment is garbage the loads are backwards number ones at the bottom you were just picking all day while they are asking you why are you taking so long warning stay away very very stressful ,money sometimes is not everything working for them, you will eventually get hurt good luck
Too much of a workload supervisors are sarcastic and will lie to you
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 highly recommend that everyone stay away from sysco they will work you likes dogs and be noting only rude and ignorant to you and they take money out of your pay for lunch brakes and your not even allowed to tale your brakes but you still loose the money on your check.
no pros what so ever
all cons to many to name
