I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Sysco.
Received an e-mail 2 month after applying online that they wanted to set up a phone interview. Phone interview was pretty standard. At the end of the interview, they told me they would be in touch with a decision, but I never heard from them again, even after following up.

I applied through a staffing agency. The process took 5 days. I interviewed at Sysco.
I was interviewed through a staffing agency, where I had to come into their office, and make a video of myself. This was forwarded to the company and I was granted a phone interview. The questions were behavioral (but as I learned were scripted). Since I'm very good at this style of interviewing, I got the job without having to meet the company face-to-face.
- Standard behavioral interview questions. Answer Question
The salary through the staffing agency was non-negotiable.

I applied online. The process took 5 weeks. I interviewed at Sysco (Alma, AR) in August 2015.
It took 2 months after I submitted my app to call me.. They interview was very professional and was done by 4 people at one time, each asking specific questions about my background, strengths, weaknesses, and then answered every question I had in a straight forward manor.. They are prideful of the company because they know its a good career to have.. They only want the best delivering since you are representing the company out there.
- What past experiences of mine lead me to believe I will be an asset to them and why? Name a time I was challenged on the job and how did I handle the challenge.. Describe an experience where I handled a situation dealing with an upset Individual at work, the outcome, and why I handled it that way.. Then asked to sell myself to them on why I would benefit the company if given employment and how do I see the company Benefiting me after the information they explained.. 1 Answer

I applied through college or university. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at Sysco.
The interview process was intense. I think I had 6 interviews. There was a lot a online screening and questions to fill out. The one on one interviews were not that bad once I was talking to someone.

I applied online. I interviewed at Sysco (Pleasant Grove, CA).
I applied online. The position was posted on Craigslist. I got a call from HR who did a phone screen. HR then followed up to schedule a face to face with the hiring manager. I met with the manager and then the CFO. The meeting with the CFO was short and brief. Although they found me directly they asked me to send my information to a third party agency they use for hiring. The company is large, but cheap and it was a way for them to avoid giving me benefits. I was paid through the agency for several months before becoming a regular employee with benefits.

Easy long as you have some type of back ground in delivering services. They need drivers the company loses drivers just as fast as they hire drivers. Nobody wants to work in a stress environment and that environment is there poorly load trailers. Managers dont care either does higher up management long as somebody in the truck willing to break there backs.

I applied online. The process took 6 days. I interviewed at Sysco (New York, NY) in July 2015.
Horrible. Two very condescending and sarcastic men did the long 1 and a half hour interview process. They were both 45 minutes late, then the questions were ridiculous and all of my answers were pretty much frowned upon and made fun of, even though I was told to just make things up if I was never in the situation questioned. Most stressful interview I ever had in my 25 years or working.

I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Sysco (Jacksonville, FL).
Started with a brief phone interview where the person informed me of the overall aspects of the position and if I would be ok making only $xxxxxx as a base salary. Basically, she was saying that if you get hired, you may not immediately be earning commission. Also, no mileage reimbursement. Sounded iffy but I was eager about the weekday hours. Next, I was invited to an in-person interview that was supposed to last 1 hour with one person. Instead, it turned into a 3-stage process that lasted 4 hours. Slightly uncomfortable as other candidates were sitting in the same room with me in between interviews. The guys I interviewed with were ok. One sleazeball from New York who was rather full of himself. I ended up not getting the job. The annoying part was that the first guy said I would hear yes or no within 3 days and it took me following up a month later to get an answer. Sysco is unprofessional and I am ultimately happy I was not offered the job. Apparently, they hire multiple sales associates but make it seem they are only looking for one. One person who they hired has been with them a whole year who still has yet to be given a territory to start making commission.
