Good place to work, decent salary, optional over time, paid lunch, management is pretty understandable and chill. Job is pretty hectic, had to hit a “percentage” per day and pick up to 1500 cases per day. Isle were pretty busy after 4pm so lots of waiting to get orders done and orders can be behind
Pros
Free lunch, night shift premium, paid lunch, good pay
Cons
Working in freezer, hard to hit daily percentage

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

Horrible work environment, superiors treat you like your inferior and tend to degrade you behind your back, while the word travels. Management shows terrible example, breaking health and safety protocols, while writing us up for any type of suspections. Would never recommend this place as a job to anyone.

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

a typical day at work:Expect to be carried and/or looked down upon by senior selectors until you manage to prove yourself to the top tier of laborers. There is an inevitable level of toxicity due to the bonus structure; the handful of speed-demon, hard-working, motivated selectors push themselves to the limit every night, ensuring the team is able to leave at a decent time, bearing the literal burden of their new and/or unmotivated counterparts.what you learned:Efficiency is everything, inside and outside of work.management:Very inadequate, non-understanding HR, focused on politics such as diversity and retention rate rather than filtering the revolving door of employees and keeping the ones that truly care. Day shift managers govern the night crew—without being able to physically be there at the same time, there will always be a disconnect between trust on a personal and professional level, paired with the yes-man type attitude consistent throughout management above supervisors.workplace culture:Sometimes toxic & cliquey. Typically everyone has a shared rage toward management and has no problem stating it among peers.the hardest part of the job:The job itself. You cannot do it forever. Far from worth spending your time there unless you are able to motivate yourself to make a bonus every week.the most enjoyable part of the job:Lots of time to think, listen to music & podcasts. The labourer crew is generally very welcoming and excited to work with new hires, but will expose flaws in coming weeks without holding any words back. Lots of "iron sharpens iron" vibes - more...
Pros
High paying job if you can efficiently make a bonus every week while avoiding injury.
Cons
Management, lack of opportunity to advance within the company, common overtime, working stat holidays, working nights.

Pros
Free food, good benefits
Cons
Long hours, demanding work load, unrealistic expectations, lack of support from management, no in-house training

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.

-Under representation of female and minority leaders. -Unprofessional manner in laying off/terminating employees. -"Old boys club" is apparent and strongly entrenched through management from the director level up. -Will force and push employees to be overworked and expected to work 12 hour days as the norm.
Pros
Great staff and people. Pay is great but the benefits are sub par.
Cons
Poor management, and top down dictatorship leadership style.

Got sent away from my family for 2 weeks sales training, to do role playing in a classroom. The experience was fun, but completely unnecessary. The management wanted results, but provided no solutions, and a serious lack of guidance. Good people, just not a good company, everything dictated by the upper management, and literally too many cooks in this kitchen.
Pros
Fun people

Soft Management as a whole, with the resulting work environment being more and more difficult. Great people and co-workers, but the 12 to 14 hours a day work schedule is demeaning.

Sysco will work you to death then discard you. Way too Corporate. Company values metrics more than human beings. Always asked to do more with less. Union Stewards encourage everyone to screw the company over when ever possible.
Pros
Money
Cons
Bad union attitudes. Company vs union battles constantly.

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

They have a well structured management and supervisory team to ensure everyday and every week things improve and a highly efficient, positive night crew to push every night and get the products out to the customers. This said you give up much of your life if you take a night-shift job.

I worked there for 10 years and learned many new skills. It is a fast pace environment with lots of changes and challenges. Opportunities to advance and learn new programs, etc are a big part of the culture there. The management team is friendly, helpful and always available to assist. I looked forward to going to work everyday. The hardest part of my job was when I did not have the resources I needed in order to complete a task and sometimes technical support was difficult to obtain in a timely manner. Typical day would involve setting up meetings, taking minutes, preparing reports, presentations, managing company credit card, reconciling and coding credit card charges to departments, getting computer access for new associates, organizing company events throughout the year as well as booking travel for executive team. It was a great place to work and if another suitable opportunity opened up, I would definitely apply.
Pros
Gym accessible to all Associates
Cons
Occasionally getting support required to accomplish goals

Very difficult work, very physically demanding, you start off as part time basically you have to earn your stripes from management to qualify for full time , for a place like that should be union, but work you are always watched when you enter the building, they know each move you make, your break time for lunch is cut too 18 mins from parking your pallet jack and taking off your gear, The days off basically is work 3 days have a day off than come back than 2 days off, and you start off in graveyards.

I worked for sysco 17 years Starting in the warehouse as an order selector then moved on to driving a tractor trailer unit doing local deliveries. Top notch outfit from management to all levels. Great pay benefits, and hours of work 4 on 3 off. If anything needed repaired it was taken care of. Penske took care of the fleet new equipment all the time
