After a hiatus of sorts I decided to get back in it. I worked for SYSCO over 42 years but was let go 10/2/17. No malice or petty anger but I started when SYSCO was only 5 years old 01/06/75 and forgot more about Sysco than a lot of today’s current corporate employees know.
If you have a question I will be happy to either tell you what I know, offer my opinion, or tell you I don’t know.
I worked in a number of departments including sales/marketing for 14 years and credit for 24 years so I’d like to think I have a lot of information to share. Those who know me will tell you I don’t mince words and my word goes beyond contestation.
So fire away.

As many long time dedicated employees have been shown the door --I cant help wondering what will motivate the younger employees to go the "extra mile" and give up life events and family time for a company that does not appreciate them in the end?

Tip of the cap to you.  I did 26 years and would never consider going back under any circumstances. 

Food water and shelter, everything else is negotiable.

I did 42 years in sales at US Foods and its predecessor companies. With the new way of selling (if you can call it that) the veterans who built this business are a hindrance to the company. We infect the new people with our way of selling. Which, most of the time, isn't the approved corporate way.

I'm glad I'm gone. Too much micromanagement and Big Brother today.
