Sysco is much more physical than the other jobs and the speed you unload directly affects your pay. Unloading 300 cases into 1 stop you're able to earn a higher wage because you're not wasting time touching other stops cases trying to find cases coming off right now

I thought Sysco was hourly, in which case the speed you unload affects your pay, but in the opposite direction you're thinking of. I'm hourly, and make more on a three stop run than a single drop, simply because it takes me longer. It's honestly my biggest gripe working an hourly job, the guys milking it make more than the hustlers.

I could be wrong about their pay structure though, where's our Sysco guy?

When I spoke to them, they were paid by the case. The more cases to a stop, the less each case was worth. For example a stop with 300 cases would be 10 cents a case and a stop with a 150 cases would be 20 cents a case. The logic being a stop with double the cases wouldn't necessarily take you double the time, but you make the same amount for the stop.

You break it down hourly and it comes out to about 30 an hour or so. You know how much your making they day before you pull off the lot based on your stops. If you have a 400 dollar day you make more hourly if you finish in 10 hours as opposed to finishing in 14.

Pay averages are always misleading, I think. Top performers are always going to smoke the average Joe, often making it look easy in the process. Look at G over there crushing it at a supposed lower tier company. Proof that performance pays.

That said, Sysco can have the top honor. I still prefer my gig. I'm crushing the average here too, and all I have to do is drive the truck.

Just do your best wherever you are, and the money will come.

Well said. FAB doesn't pay what y'all make; but it WORKS for US'ns... quite nicely. Things fall into place, as y'all drivers see fit. FAB's #'s aren't near the bottom by any means, nor the top. Drop & hooks, all no touch, hometime, truck maintenance, no complaints, no micromanagement.

Your last sentence is GOLDEN, Rich.
