I drove by the Sysco Terminal and wrote down the phone number for now hiring. Guess they must be hard up here in Cleveland because they are offering a 2500 sign on bonus. I called the phone number and just wanted to hear what it had to say. Pretty much leave you're name and what job you want and we will call you back later. I know for a fact I could get in at Sysco (have connections, but really do not like using them because if things do not work out then it makes the person who was my connection look bad. While that may sound odd to some there is a whole group of people who do not like using references or connections some people will purposely not refer any one sole on what I listed above. Sysco Cleveland has also been known to hire newbies like my self. GFS at least around here seems to have there pick of the litter and is harder to get on with. I had one phone interview with them and they never called me back. The hard part about this is I have heard nothing but bad terrible awful things about Sysco Cleveland and it must be true because they have such an outrageous driver turn over, however I personally have never lived it my self so I do not know what to make of it. You'll find this at any company some people come and go in a day others stay for years on end and then some like me in an odd way beat the odds unexpectedly, truthfully where I work they did not expect me to make it, but I did. BTW I am not one of their favorites far from it, I really do not think they wanted me long term but ended up getting me and then it became a "well we could have got worse." I know Sysco Cleveland is Union as far as miss loaded trucks being sent out late screwy swing driver routes that are set up to fail 100% of the time, poorly built pallets which falls under the miss loaded category, been there done all that and didn't have half the driving experience I have now. Money wise it is pretty consistent where I work now got paid on Friday and I did pretty good by Sysco standards but good by beer standards. That's another thing to I do not know what Sysco's training protocol is I know where I work they pretend to have a training protocol and then turn around and throw you to the wolves (I worked as a helper first but the routes I was on and the way some things were done was different for instance a guy running in Lorain county using a 28 foot trailer which is what I was on for most of my time out there is going to have a different experience then a guy in a side loader in Cleveland, different customers and different mix of products.) I would imagine Sysco in some cases to be the same way. So training is going to be different and all over the place.
