    Neutral Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through other source. The process took 3+ weeksinterviewed at Sodexo USA (Berkeley, CA) in June 2010.

    Interview

    based on a popularity contest. The company holds interviews after receiving the "politically correct" number of diverse applicants. Then the 'formal' interviews are held, even though the company already knows who is getting placed into the position (especially if it is an internal candidate).

    Negotiation

    none. here is the salary. Take it or leave it.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ weeksinterviewed at Sodexo USA.

    Interview

    They are very selective and they get a lot of applicants. Usually you start with a screening process that is done to your application, if selected a recruiter will call you with around 5 basic questions, if not you will not hear anything. After that they pass your application to the hiring manager who will then contact you to do a phone or face to face interview. After that as a chef you my do a bench test or cooking demo, then an offer is made. Its that simple....if you get called.

    Interview Questions

    Negotiation

    Minimal, they are pretty hard line on what they will pay a position, best case you can get relocation and thats where you can negotiate things like bonuses and what they cover for your move.
