Our Previous VP, Now Pres, made a remark that was
overheard by one of us normal folk. He seemed to be having
a dilemma as to how to spend his bonus for that
particular quarter. "Should I get a new car, or just pay off
my house?" Must be rough. Definitely put those
overpaid pencil pushers on ABC.
Sysco is a solid company you can pretty much bet
on. After all, everyone HAS to eat. Over 8 years time
I've been with Sysco it has performed well. It has
split twice and is getting ready to do it again Dec 15.
This past year has had a slump from Jan to Mar, where
the stock went down some, but that is typically our
slowest time as well. Dont know if that would have
anything to do with the downward trend we had at that
Why are some houses union and some arent? Its
how the employees are treated that determines that.
Some houses have better "people person's" working at
them. We have some, but they are not in the "chain of
command" so to speak. So their voices get drowned out or
not paid any attention too. Personally, I would not
want to be at Sysco of KC if it werent for the union.
The management has shown us time and time again that
we arent worth much to them. Plenty of comments get
made about us "warehouse bastards", "overpaid
baboons", "We could get monkeys in here to do a better
job". We have had several guys transfer here from other
Sysco's. They all leave. The last one lasted 6 mo. And he
was with Sysco for 11 yrs prior to coming here. We
have had supervisors from 2 other Sysco's come here to
find ways to help this place get better numbers. I
talked to them all, and they came to the conclusion that
relations between workers and management needs to improve.
Why am I still here? For the good pay (union
assisted), good benefits, and job stability (like I said,
everyone has to eat). I can go there, do my job, and go
home with enough money to raise a family.
Dont take my joking the wrong way just having fun
with people.You should be proud of your family im sure
he did work hard,because sysco dont hand you nothing
for free,I am not a ANTI SYSCO employee i just dont
want them to try to undercut my pay that i work hard
for every day and thats what they are trying to do. I
heard that to that some houses voted down the union
to,it will come back to bite them in the ass because
all the houses are trying to put them on a ABC grade
pay.That will be a lost in wages for people, and the non
union houses can do what ever they want to there
employees .I am sorry to say that, a union is very needed
at sysco i wish it i was wrong .Just having fun .
HAVE A SAFE AND MERRY CHRISTMAS
You are right, he did get it through bonuses. The
point I was trying to make is that the opportunity
exist for any one wanting to work for it. It is offered
to the rank and file at 15% below market. Some
investors are happy to make 10%. To say that all management
are pencil pushers indicates a lack of understanding
of the business. The gentleman from Chicago gives me
the impression that if you have a different view than
he has you are gay. ( use of the term my lover).
Actually my buddy is my brother of whom I am very proud.
He worked hard to get where he is at. This will be
my last post on this board. But if you know answer
one question. Why are some houses union and some not.
I have heard some voted down the union. Also may be
some of the ranks should put together a website called
Fun is what I am having. Merry Christmas to all and
to all good night.

me ....what is the return on there performance what
does sysco make off of there sweat or there cold feet
and hands, im stupid they sit behind there desk and
push there pencil will im out pushing a two wheeler,i
think they are grossly overpaid
Looking at some of the posts on this board with
poor spelling , poor sentence structure , and little
or no punctuation , I would say several of you are
damn lucky to have a job at all! You should consider
yourself fortunate to have been given the responsibility
of being in charge of a 2 wheeler.
job after high school was welding on an assembly
line. I had learned to weld in shop class and heard all
the stories about getting rich as a
After several months of breathing the fumes and
consistantly burning my eyes I decided I needed a new career.
I was also complaining a lot about how easy the
people in the front office had it while the shop workers
did all the work.
I went to college and got a
degree in business. I was employed by some very large
corporations and was paid excellent salaries.
realized the technology field was the place to be. I
returned to college and got my second degree , this time
in Computer Science.
I'm not bragging but I
am patting myself on the back for making the
decisions I did. I've had a very good life.
you have to face reality. You are thinking your
company management has it easy while you slave away at
manual labor. The fact is you are unhappy with yourself.
So do something about it and stop
In case any of you wonder , I am not a Sysco
employee. I'm a Sysco investor. In fact , I don't work for
anyone now. I retired at 52 in 1998 and started my own
in-home business as a consultant.
I wish you well!
In this Great land of opportunity you can go back
to school, get a Master's in Business and join
management. Then you too, could get a big bonuses for pushing
pencils and also learn why they are paid so much. They
make big decisions so truck drivers still have a job.
