    Welcome to TruckingBoards Drew!

    I am sure glad to have a selector here, I don't envy your job, our guys got cut too and alot of them left, you guys make or break us, I can speak for all the drivers that a good selector is priceless to us, so from me to you...thank you Brother!

    I thought it was a pretty picture and maybe you could see Sysco in a different light.

    I don't think the meat grinder business model that the big truck driving companies use will work at Sysco. Isn't the main reason they get away with it is the lower wages they provide? Run your tail off for less than $1000 per week? A lot of drivers that can make it at those companies will not make it here.

    The move from ABC to DIP was a big hit for a lot of drivers, but it was a nation wide move. If we're back to hourly, then we're hourly, and it can only go up from there.

    I like the fact that drivers are slowing down to a reasonable pace, we're always going to be short handed and overworked, and as a result we'll always have a lot of drivers off or on light duty because of injuries.

    We've been hiring inexperienced workers since before I started, but you have to be sharp and be a hard worker to keep your job here, and the fact that Sysco can't find enough drivers like that says as much about this country's work force as it does about Sysco.

    Don't worry about the drivers that laugh in your face, we will own their company soon enough :)

    All I know is Sysco Food Service of Cleveland didn't want me. However, it's gotten so bad here in Cleveland that Sysco spends thousands of dollars to advertise for help on the radio. At what point to customers go, you know Sysco the service is bad, the food is expensive, maybe we should call one of the regional companies or give this ever increasing in size GFS company a try.
    Look here they are:
