It appears Sysco has implemented a hiring freeze. Layoffs are a definite possibility in the not too distant future. Both 2016 (1200 jobs) and 2019 (300 jobs) layoffs were announced right around this time. Plus, with the new accrued PTO schedule they would save so much money cutting headcount earlier in the year.

No doubt, doing the same as US Foods. Fewer salespeople handling more accounts since everybody is supposed to be ordering online. Visit once or twice a month to show Scoop (or the Sysco equivalent) while you drag your DSM around. Meanwhile, the smaller independents are in your accounts every week picking off cases.

Corona and San Diego used to be going concerns before USF changed to "hub and spoke" management, and took away their division presidents. A lot of people have left because micromanagement and the new salary-plus pay plan.

Corona and San Diego each have a Vice President of Sales, but the area president is in La Mirada.
