I have created this topic to see if we can keep up using the message board rather than the email process.

Ok First I read this post.  "

re:  5847:  "Boston sysco...your all scab sucking parasites. Please explain to me what it is that I have no Idea on. Would it be the unemployment rate in the state of R.I. Or the Economy going down the shitter. Yet some people post on this site about keeping there jobs, Only to have to sweep floors....It better than Unemployment. (think about it ) !!!"
5857" 

 

Simply stating ,you have a poor grasp on the english language and not even an understanding of what it does to a man to be demoted to a position at half the pay he is used to earning. This was done totally for the companys benifit so they would have trained CDL drivers at their disposal when THEY needed them. Better than unemployment??? Not in a finacial sence. Only for the hope of someday returning to the driver position,

re:  HALLSMITH SYSCO:  "How can a multi-million dollor company like Sysco put a woman like Julia in charge of the H.R. Dept. She has no ethic and moral values in her whole body. Eth'nically speeking she is a cess-pool (A covered pit for sewage drainage) is the best way to describe her, She smiles to your face...But when you turn your back watch out,,,OUCH. I have worked W/her for many many years & it makes me sick to see how she treats people, Mostly warehouse personal. Well they say every dog has his & her's day, Julia your day will come soon I'm sure of it."

This site allows you to say what you want, as you posted above, so let it flow. I don’t know Julia you refer to but you, sir or Madame, are a moron. Below is your list of misspelled or misused words:

Dollor – the word is "dollar". Can I assume you are an illegal and that’s why you don’t know what currency you’re paid in?

Eth’nically speeking – I think you meant "ethically speaking"

Cess-pool – It’s one word, not hyphenated.

Warehouse personal – it’s "personnel"

Do yourself a favor and try spell check before you start criticizing others. It might keep people from realizing you’re an idiot.

" Julia your day will come soon I'm sure of it." - maybe she will implement a quarterly comprehension exam to ensure all personnel have a satisfactory understanding of the English language, maybe then she would test certain words such as your mistakes to ascertain who you are...... then she will have her day!

I agree if we had more people that took the time to learn the english language maybe they would also take the time to learn facts before they post. Although this is " foodservice rumors".
As for Julia, she is the VP of HR and she does her job well. What people do not seem to understand that by doing her job well she will ALWAYS look out for the company not the employee.

Now thats funny... Actually I made about the same in one day driving as I would have made in 3 days sweeping so I am pleased with the day. Believe me if there were any decent driving jobs out there I would have already been employed at one of them.

at least you understand the situation. you have a CDL and the economy is bad. They were able to hang onto you guys through the winter, picking what days to put you on the road. It was a smart move by them, but they wanted a pat on the back for being nice to you. They were not being nice. They were keeping you handy........at short money.

I Agree 100%.  No one knows better than I that the only reason for keeping us around was to have trained drivers available at their beck and call..
Not that I blame them, it was a good business decision on their part. BUT they will get no "pat on the back" from me.   Hopefully the economy gets better and I can dig my way out of the financial hole this has put me into.  That is one thing they never wanted to hear... I am going broke so that the can keep all the other drivers working their 5th day. They say they look at profits but I don't see how it is more profitable to pay 120 more for a trip if you have guys that can pull it for regular trip pay.

they say it's a numbers game, but it's more about keeping the select group of drivers happy. the one's that always have a 5th day and are able to get rid of stops that have a lot of stairs. ----'too many stops or cases? here is a helper'---- a lot of special attention goes into making sure some of the drivers make top dollar and don't work too hard. it's always been like that and it will never change.

let's take a look at some more funny numbers. Instead of 2 trucks coming out of Norton, they send tandems about an hour away to resident drivers. Instead of paying for 2 tractors, they now have to pay for 3. Also that driver who is pulling the tandems is getting paid, so they are paying an extra driver. If you want to go a step further, the trip that he could be pulling, is being done by someone on their 5th day, earning them a bonus. The numbers don't add up.

it looks like Sysco Boston will save some money the smart way. the new pay system used for selectors and loader will cut the wagers of the overpaid and lazy crybabies. good to see.

Why does every driver think that the loaders and selectors are lazy, and all salespeople think the same of drivers?

10 years ago, we adopted a new "on-boarding" procedure that had all new salespeople spend 1 day of training, delivering alongside a driver. Every driver and selector hired spent a day in each others job when they were new as well, to understand how each job effected the others.

As a result, miss-picks and "not on trucks" were greatly reduced. So are the fake orders from salespeople in order to meet minimums. (bring 20 cases in and return 8).

At our place, over half of the drivers used to work inside the warehouse, so it's easy for us to see when they are cutting corners. Most of the blame has to go to management though. They want quantity rather than quality.

As far as the salesmen saying the drivers are lazy, that's all right with us. We look at them the same way. Orders are put in over the internet or phone. Checks are mailed in or picked up by the drivers. Many stops can't remember the last time they saw their sales rep.

If all the salesmen were told to stay home for a week with no pay......what would happen? Compare that to what would happen if all the drivers were told to stay home for a week. I hope Houston does not read this....it could be bad for the sales department.

I agree. Drivers represent the "front line" representation of the company to the customer all too often. In my days of surprise customer visits, I would regularly come across a customer that would rather give the driver a free lunch, than to offer lunch to the salesman.
On the flip side, there were many instances where a customer was dissatisfied with the attitude or appearance of the driver making the delivery. (How often have you ordered furniture from a local store and had it delivered by people you wouldn't be surprised to see in a line up, much less allowing them in your home?)
We do have to make this work as a whole.....Sales, Ops, Purchasing.

For every finger pointed at someone else, there is another coming in your direction.

I really enjoy reading your posts. You give truly meaningful advice without all the sharp barbs and BS that most on this site give. You must be a 20+ year veteran to have acquired such insight. You not only give sound advice but have class as well! You definably are refreshing!

Best regards,
