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

-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.

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
Pros
competitive pay
Cons
long hours

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.
