Working at Sysco Foodservice
Driver Associate (Former Employee) –  650 Cataraqui Woods Dr.3 April 2017
As a driver associate with a bit of seniority at Sysco kingston I had a decent delivery area which consisted of a good customer base in the Ottawa area which I enjoyed for over 22 years,until it came to an end in march of 2017.This career with Sysco began in 2005 with a big pay increase which made life a lot easier for the majority of the Sysco Associates working there.I have no regrets working for Sysco,but regret not being there anymore due to circumstances.
Pros
A Great Living with better then average compensation
Cons
Physically draining and hard on a family life

Worst place to be period.
Warehouse worker (Former Employee) –  Edmonton, AB21 February 2017
In short if you want to be healthy and happy then dont even apply here.Its the worst company i ever worked for and i quited in the end.They are bunch of liars that treat people like slaves and numbers without rights.Hernia and injuries are a common thing in that company and they dont even try to change something.If u want to be a supervisor there then u have to be brain damaged and without any sympathy.

Best paying meat grinder job ever
Delivery driver (Former Employee) –  Ontario16 February 2017
I was lucky to have a great supervisor and some good fellow drivers but the company was a total meat grinder to work for. Despite being unionized the company is expert at using people seasonally with promise of long term employment and will discard you at the six month probation or the minute you get hurt on the job which is guaranteed with the demands placed on drivers. Start times vary between 2am and 6am and you never know when you will finish any given shift. Expect to deliver up to 1000-1100 pieces on a busy shift by hand and by yourself using a dolly off the back ramp. Some pieces can weigh up to 60lbs each and are shaped very awkward to deliver quickly. Delivery locations often have stairs and are difficult to deliver to with very tight delivery times especially restaurants. Trucks are often loaded very poorly making it difficult keep on schedule because you spend too much time digging and searching for product not loaded on the right skids but its always the drivers fault creating a blame game between driver and warehouse pickers. Falling behind is a nightmare because customers delivery times are so tight that you have zero room for externals you can't control like weather break downs ect. Once you fall behind expect to be harassed on your phone by dispatch, customer service, one or two sales reps, sales rep boss and one or two supervisors! Being new you will be spare board and always running random delivery runs making it difficult to get quick and efficient enough to be kept on permanently. If you can handle stress are super fit, don't smoke,can drive  more... fast enough to not shift your load you might pass probation. If you do you will have one of the best paying delivery jobs in the industry if you can handle the pressure.  less
Pros
Pay and benefits, weekends off, lots of overtime
Cons
Long hours, inconsistent start times, unrealistic expectations

Fast paced working environment.
Warehouse picker/selector (Former Employee) –  Kingston, ON10 February 2017
Start out on night shifts with a bunch of co workers whom you have to depend on and in turn depend on you as well. Must possess a keen eye for picking correct products whilst still meeting your mandatory quota.
Pros
Continental shifts
Cons
Long hours and not for everyone because of the night work.

Many different products to see, fun work environment, must not fear fast moving vehicles!
Industrial Cleaner (Former Employee) –  Woodstock, ON2 February 2017
Fun people to work with at Sysco and with the TCCC team.
Always a team of at least 2 cleaners sharing daily or nightly duties. All shifts work together to maintain cleanliness when everyone does their part. Spills can be a nuisance especially when flour and jugs of oil spill together... or jars of beets.

Must have no fear of heights (scissor lift)
Must have no fear of fast moving vehicles

TC Custom Clean was a great place to work, i would happily re-join their cleaning forces!
Pros
Ability to operate different cleaning machines/vehicles.
Cons
Smelly, sticky, messy spills, constant temperature fluxuation throughout shift.
