Sysco's customers are amazing! They are why I get up in the morning. Management is dismal at best. The work life balance is impossible given the work load put on its employees.

deceiving experience
Coordonnateur en Santé et sécurité (contractuel) (Former Employee) –  Montreal-est, QC21 June 2017
I thought for the size of this company that things would be awesome, but the re-organization of ALL departments is a must, the safety culture is not present and people are not convinced since Upper management are not much convinced into safety awareness.
Finally, happy to end up my temporary contract and I wish them good luck in building a better safety environment and a well oriented safety beleif for the upper management.
Pros
large company, many ressources
Cons
safety culture is a failure

Productive but tiring
Janitor (Former Employee) –  Coquitlam, BC19 June 2017
It was an okay job but definitely not a job for a student who hasn't has much experience in the janitorial field. I learned how to clean things properly though something I might not have learned if i hadn't taken the job

Productive, physically demanding job that helps teach the importance of time management and efficiency
Night Shift Associate (Current Employee) –  Victoria, BC24 April 2017
Night Shift Associates are schedule 6:30PM-3:00AM, there is potential for overtime, however you are more likely to get off a couple hours early.
The management enforces a safe workplace while still sending out product at a very fast rate, you will receive all the training you need to succeed.
The hardest part of the job is the repetitive labour, but overtime you notice it less and less, it also happens to be the most enjoyable part of the job, forcing you to exercise in a sense.
You will learn time management, safe lifting, ethics, food safety, WHIMIS, and it may even drive you to think about how you can complete other tasks in a more efficient manner.
This is a great job, great perks and benefits, this position is for those who can put their head down and work.
Pros
Benefits, Pension, sometimes free food, "forced exercise"
Cons
Non-stop physical, repetitive, Late shift time
