Sysco seems like a fantastic company, but I would not recommend working in the Inbound/Outbound Order Selector position if you are a female. During my first shift, an employee made me feel very unwelcome in this regard. I hope the company improves their culture and makes the warehouse a better place for women to work. I would have loved to continue working for Sysco if I had felt more welcome.
Pros
Great benefits and accommodating HR department.
Cons
Sexist Co-workers, Difficult Hours

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

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

Pros

Long hours

The company is goal is to get you to be super-efficient in your role and then they teacher process to another person and let you go. This is the company vision to regionalizeworking in the warehouse under the union is a good opportunity but working in the office with no support is challenging
Pros
Free food, good benefits
Cons
Long hours, demanding work load, unrealistic expectations, lack of support from management, no in-house training

It’s a good place to work at. Lots of good people, lots of bad people. Money is good but it isn’t easy work. I found the job enjoyable and would only say if you want to work hard, you’d be fine here

Sacrificing your sleep and doing a lot of physical work is quite draining but the pay is good, the cafeteria is full of different snack selections. You will interact with lots of long term customers with sysco and solve problems on site

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.

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.

Dead end job, no chance of making enough money to live off of. If you just want a few bucks spending money then this is the place for you. Early start time and off early most days, but you may only work one day a week.

If you are married with kids then do not apply. Sysco places money over family. You are working 7 days a week. Bringing your work to the cottage on the weekend is the norm. When you work hard to build an account and a great relationship with your customers. Sysco will take your account and turn them over to inside sales and you lose that profit. If you want to stay healthy then stay away. Your health will decline. Too many of my former associates are sick and miserable now. If
