    Conference Services Manager Interview

    Anonymous Employee  in  New York, NY
    Anonymous Employee in New York, NY
    Application Details

    I interviewed online. The process took 4 months - interviewed 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.

    Application Details

    I interviewed through college or university. The process took 4 days - interviewed at Sodexo USA in September 2012.

    Interview Details

    I got this interview opportunity from a school recruiting. Sodexo inc hired lots of student workers at the minimum rate. The interview questions are really easy. Such as the following:
    can you introduce yourself?
    Can you talk about your resume? they may be interested on your resume and ask your work experiences on the resume.
    Some behavior questions, such as what will you do in some situations? There is no right or wrong answer. They will also make you conduct a online test to test you logic or mathematic skills.

    Application Details

    I interviewed through an employee referral. 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.

    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
