Very Easy Interview

Supervisor Interview

Supervisor
Martin, TN

I applied through an employee referral and the process took a day - interviewed at Sodexo USA.

Interview Details – There really is no hiring process. If the managers like you, then you will get a job based solely on appearance. I was not asked if I had prior experiences in management or marketing, which the job needed. I was never assigned a position to be my primary job, yet was expected to meet several goals by upper level management.

Interview Question – I was asked questions only about my application. No real inquires into my experience or skills   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – There was no negotiation phase.

Operations Manager - Education, Dining Services Interview

Operations Manager - Education, Dining Services

I applied online and the process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Sodexo USA in June 2013.

Interview Details – Screening call, then competency interview, then interview with hiring manager. Process is very slow and I am sure that by the time they actually get enough interview candidates lined up, the cream of the crop have already started working somewhere else

Interview Question – Standard questions.   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – Salary is already set so little to no room for negotiating up

EVS Manager Interview

EVS Manager
New York, NY

I applied online and the process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Sodexo USA in April 2014.

Interview Details – You apply online (sodexo careers). Then a human resource officer will contact you and chat about meeting with the general manager of the account. The interview is conducted in the facility they are providing service (aka hospital). The interview is usually around 1 hour long. The general manager has questions given by headquarters and you are rated on your response (scale 1 to 5).

Interview Questions

  • How would you go above and beyond for a patient / customer ?   Answer Question
  • As a manager, how do you know your employees are doing what they are supposed to?   View Answer

Reason for Declining – I worked there for about 3 years and decided to get a bachelors degree. I was recently contacted by a recruiter with the same position i had 3 years ago with a $2000 increase.
