    I didn't have a professional resume. I filled out a standard job application form. There was only one interview at the actual job site. The interview was quick and pretty casual.

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 5 daysinterviewed at Sodexo USA in September 2014.

    Interview Details

    This as a phone screening with a recruiter. Turned out that they already had final candidates to meet the client, they were interviewing for "back-up". Needless to say, the interview was very basic, not many question asked. It lasted for all but 15 minutes... I had prepared so well and was looking forward to the opportunity just to realize there was no real opportunity to begin with. Disappointing.

    Conference Services Manager Interview

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 4+ monthsinterviewed at Sodexo USA in May 2014.

    Interview Details

    Unfortunately, Sodexo doesn't treat its candidates with due respect by keeping them informed of the interview process and hiring decision. I was originally contacted by HR in May for a phone screen, but wasn't invited in for an interview until a month later in June. I had to go to their office three times before I finally met with all of the hiring managers -- a clear indication of how disorganized they are internally. I was told the hiring decision would be swift since they needed to staff the position ASAP. Unfortunately, that was not the case. My follow-up emails never solicited a response that indicated when a decision would be made. It's now August 2014 and I've decided to move on. I consider this a blessing in disguise. Do I really want to work for an organization that doesn’t take the time to notify job candidates of its interview process? Their HR and hiring managers must think so little of people that they don’t keep candidates informed of their hiring progress. The way I was treated over the past few months is a reflection of the company’s overall culture.

    Food Production Manager Healthcare Facility Interview

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 4 weeksinterviewed at Sodexo USA in December 2013.

    Interview Details

    Applied via Indeed.com...got callback from Corporate office to do phone screen...passed that; waited another week or so to do local phone screen with Manager who will be doing the hiring. Talked to Manager, as arranged, lasted about 40 minutes good exchange of question and answers. No blatantly stupid questions to answer, waited another week to arrange for face-to-face interview with same Manager I did the phone screen with. Manager gave me a tour of the campus and dining areas. Seems the facility is somewhat disorganized and needs a internal and food service upgrade. Waited yet another week to talk to the DIrector of the overall facility. Met with her and the dietitian in the same day...usual interview with a "executive" After all this they had some kind of inspection to prepare for and had to wait to decide on who they hire...never got a call back to say i did not get hired after waiting over 3 weeks...

    Interview Details

    Applied for position in June, was called a month later for a phone screening. The call went well but it's now been over a month since that call and I've heard nothing. Application status on their website says that applicants are still under review and I haven't received the official declination but after a month of hearing nothing, I am assuming that the answer is no.

    General Manager Interview

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 4 daysinterviewed at Sodexo USA in June 2013.

    Interview Details

    Responded to APPA posting for General Manager for Facilities. Was called the next business day and had a 30 minute interview screening to determine my interest in the position, location, and salary range. This interview also provided the recruiter with enough information about my background to decide I was a potential fit for the position.

    At the end of this phone call, I was sent a link to a Sodexo web site and was asked to complete an application online, and I was scheduled for a 30 minute competency interview the next day.

    Sodexo has a very detailed list of competencies for each position with a group of core competencies and some specific to each role. The second interview asked behavioral questions based on the competencies. You can prepare for this interview by thinking about your accomplishments in terms of these competencies and answering in the format they prescribe (I was sent an interview guide).

    I am waiting to hear if I will be invited for an in-person interview.
