    Negative Outlook

    I worked at Sysco

    Pros

    There are some really wonderful, hardworking people who work here

    Cons

    This company works their employees to exhaustion, provi (bare minimum benefits, sick days and vacation) and does not care one bit about mental health or wellbeing. I saw so many people go on disability because they just couldn’t take it anymore, and the turnover rate is reflective of all of this as well. This is a multi billion dollar company built on the backs of their underpaid employees, they completely take advantage of the people who are actually on the frontlines of this organization. I had a full mental breakdown as a result of this highly toxic work environment. I became suicidal and was hospitalized (which I had to use my vacation time for). This was my experience and I truly hope that there are MAJOR improvements made here. Approach this employer with caution!
