They just need to let go of the people who do basically nothing at all, and treat the people who do just about everything including other workers jobs with a little more respect instead of judging respect by how old the person is or how long they've been working there.
Pros
friendly atmosphere, good wages, possibility of advancement, proper management
Cons
youre gonna be doing other peoples work for them, just remember which department you are in, because they and your supervisors should be the only ones you take orders from

Réussi, sa bien été. J'étais engager. 2 semaines de training c'est pas assez. Faut en faire plus. Tu est bien payer, mais tu devras travailler pour. On commence en bas et sa prend 4 ans avant d'avoir un bon salaire.Se lever a 2am, commencer a 4:30 am, faire l'inspection. Le camion est plein ta juste a le prendre. La routine après. Du travail et seulement sa.
Pros
Travail régulier
Cons
Pas de pause

It's a good place to be and work. Professional and they know exactly what they are doing. If you are a hard worker with sustainable performance means a big room for improvement.

There is no job security at Sysco and no one is safe. It is about the bottom line, not people. Sooner or later (sooner), you will get axed! Consider yourself warned!
Pros
Food
Cons
All about the bottom line

I very much enjoyed working here. The union is very fair, but some people took advantage of that. You'll find that everywhere, however. The pay is very attractive, but you have to work for it, and if you're able to meet their ELS standards, you can make a lot of money.Moving into the office, you're no longer in the union, but your wage is more than adequate, and your benefits are the same. The RRSP and retirement packages are incredible.Management can be a little bit of an old boy's club, but if you can look past that, it's well worth it.
Pros
Free test kitchen lunches once a month, great pay, excellent benefits, good people to work with
Cons
Long hours, very tough physical work, lack of advancement

Promesses faites à l'entrevue et non tenues. Désintéressement de la part des Directeurs. Aucun suivi de satisfaction de la part des supérieurs. Aucun respect pour l'employé, nous sommes des numéros.

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

Unfortunately the site is driven by ego, intimidation and fear. Managers are not leaders and vision is limited to quarterly financial reporting. Poor fiscal performance and lack of leadership mean seriously job security
Pros

J'ai bien aimée mon séjour chez Sysco. J'étais un employé modèle je n'ai jamais eu de difficulté avec la moyenne demander (115) pick a l'heure pour monter les commandes moi personnellement je roulais a 130 et même 150 pick a l'heure avec un taux d'erreur très apprécié par les contremaîtres mais moins du syndicat qui trouvais que j'allais trop vite. J'ai eu la formation pour me servir d un transpalette et pour chauffer un chariots élévateurs (Raymond) et j'ai bien aimé être au chargement des camions encore la il nous demandais de donner un rendements de 8 palette a l'heure et j'en donnais 10 a 12 \heures. Pour l'aspect le plus difficile que j'ai trouver c étais de travaille avec un syndicat vue que je donnais plus que les autre j'ai eu des commentaires pour me faire ralentir. mais en général j'ai vraiment apprécié les 12 année passée pour Sysco. Les dates d'embauche ne serons peut-être pas précises j'y suis aller d'après mes souvenirs

Work at Sysco offered me so many challenges as production was a new area for me. Working in a unionized environment also added to this challenge. Management was very supportive and provided me with the necessary tools to help me learn quickly and adapt to the work culture.

Typical warehouse work, very fast paced, etc. Not much career advancement. Management was not good. Supervisors were also not good. You are paid to destroy your body in the long run.

Sysco was one of the worst places I’ve ever worked. The training is absolute garbage. The trainer talked more about himself than how to do the job.They train you how to run a power jack, which pallets to put your product on, but not how to stack your pallets which is the most important part of the job. The time quotas are nearly impossible for new employees to meet. I was fired at 4 months even though I asked numerous times for extra help because I was having a hard time and was told not to worry about my job and then got fired the same day. stay away the money isn’t worth it you have to work every stat holiday and work afternoons so if you have a family it’s very hard . new new employee meet
