    Payroll Interview

    Application Details

    I applied online – interviewed at Sysco.

    Interview Details

    Filled out the online application, very simple. Heard back from HR via email two days later. Did not hear back from them for two weeks. They called to do a phone screen, around the time that I told HR I was unavailable. Completed phone screening. Did not hear back for another two weeks. Got a phone call, they wanted to interview me the next day, not giving too much head's up.

    The interview itself was one of the worst I have ever had. Did not feel that the questions allotted me a chance to prove myself of value for the company. Very broad questions.

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 2+ monthsinterviewed at Sysco.

    Interview Details

    I was invited to a recruiting event the day before it was scheduled. There i had a group interview with a manager and 2 senior analysts. They asked behavioral and experience based questions. Following the recruiting event I was invited to take 2 assessment tests 1 for excel and 1 for logic (although I think the logic 1 was given to me in error). After taking those I had a phone interview with another hiring manager for the same position.

    It took this company about 2 months to send me an offer letter. At that point I'd already found another opportunity.

    I applied online – interviewed at Sysco in November 2014.

    Interview Details

    So far I have only had a telephone interview. For probably ten minutes we just reviewed my application and work history, driving record etc. There was nothing out of the ordinary. The interview took about thirty minutes or so. The interviewer was pleasant and easy to talk to. There were not trick questions or difficult scenario situations.

    Interview Questions
    • Nothing difficult or unexpected. One question was: What process would you take to secure the business at a new restaurant opening in your area?   Answer Question

    My process was seamless and super quick. A truly amazing experience due to great people.

    I was expecting hours of STAR behavioral questioning but it was just sitting back and getting to know each other. Fantastic.

    Marketing Associate (Sales Representative ) Interview

    Anonymous Employee
    Anonymous Employee
    Application Details

    I applied through an employee referral – interviewed at Sysco.

    Interview Details

    Phone interview from a woman at their recruiting headquarters in Texas. General sales related questions. Very impersonal. A lot of back and forth and phone tag before I was asked to come in for an interview. Met with the District Manager and Sales Manager separately. One meeting was enjoyable and a lot of back and forth, while the other was very scripted and awkward. Very impersonal and irrelevant. If you ask me, they need to redo their interview questions. They will never get genuine answers to the questions they ask.

    Interview Questions
    • They said that previous sales experience wasn't completely necessary, but EVERY SINGLE question was "when selling in your current position, how do you handle A, B, C...?" Seemed a bit contradictory.   Answer Question
