I am reading this and feeling bad for my competitors.  I work for a decent size independent in NY.  Our owner is doing everything in his power not to lay off anyone and so far has kept to his word.

Sysco has always been the great Satan to us but I have friends who work for your organization who have lost their jobs.    

Nobody wish's anyone to be in this situation.  Hope it all works out for all of you?

Any truth to that?


I know personally of 2 tenured reps who were 100% commission let go. One of them had been with the company 14 years, the other 19 and both were making great money like old days.

I think they took that into consideration on income they can keep.

It's got to be stressful to know that every conference call invite could be your last!

Sysco corporate remains untouched so far. Still about a month out from stay at home order being lifted so anything is possible.

The Sysco layoffs will continue … if any of you saw the video that Tom Bene did, about a year or two before he dismissal, the goal for Sysco was to reduce all staff/labor by 25% by 2020 (or end of 2020). So basically 1 in 4 people were going to get the ax … Of course I don't think he was expecting the Covid Deal to hit or effect the way it did, but just another good excuse to downsize … 
Now Sysco is going back to the Regional Presidents and regional VP of Sales - at one time they called a president over more than 1 house a "Pod Daddy" (whatever), and they have started cutting more the last month or so, some in effect already and some coming in the next month or so. Some of those presidents were deserving to get cut and let go … some they kept need to go too, just a bunch of selfish bastards. 
Where they really need to trim the fat is in that corporate office, there is millions of dollars of wasted money with the many layers they have up there, yet instead they start cutting at the Opco level … which is fine, I'm done with SYY now anyway, and having a much better quality of life since being gone, same industry, more money, less corporate headaches …

You have no clue what you are talking about.  Corporate cuts were done in droves back in April.  The cuts that were done in the current waves are about as lean as you can go.  If you are done with SYY then be done and don’t try to talk about what you don’t know.  The industry is doing what they have to do to be profitable in a tough situation.  Lots of people lost their jobs or took cuts, it’s sad but that’s business and capitalism.  The companies that make the best moves now will be in a better position to expand once the pandemic begins to clear.  
Glad you are happy, I always say to anyone in this industry if you aren’t happy go find someplace or somewhere to be happy.  We only get one life to live.

I still have contacts at Sysco as well as former Sysco employees that also have direct contacts that give me updates so I kind of do know what is going on. and look, I will say, I am appreciative of the experience and things I learned at Sysco, those have helped me then and now, and I was fairly happy while there, it was just the manner in which a lot of people were getting laid off or treated (even pre-covid) who were good, long term and productive employees that got the short end of stick. Finally, I agree with your comment, One Life to Live, so live it...
as an old customer told me, "All men die, but not all men live"
