Supply Chain Analyst Interview

Anonymous Interview Candidate
Houston, TX

I applied online and the process took 2 days - interviewed at Sysco in September 2012.

Interview Details – First I had a phone interview with an HR representative that was a filter interview. The second part. About a week later a was asked to set up a meeting with 4 other individuals - all who would be working with me in some way and they each had a page of behavioral questions to ask me. They were supposed to be different, but it seemed to be extremely repetitive. Then the last individual who interviewed me was an old fashion style interview - which after 4 interviews of behavioral interviews was a definitely nice change.

Interview Question – What do you do when you disagree with your supervisor?   Answer Question

Marketing Associate Interview

Marketing Associate
Pittsburgh, PA

I applied through an employee referral - interviewed at Sysco in March 2011.

Interview Details – Hiring process was interesting. It took much more time than I thought it would. The right hand didn't seem to know what the left hand was doing. Interviewing process wasn't organized at all. They informed you that your interview would be at this time, but the interviewing time started roughly one and a half hours later. Wasn't sure if they knew what they were doing.

Interview Question – Why do you want this job? If I didn't want this job, why wouldn't even be here? Management couldn't tell me why they had such a large turn over in their sale force.   View Answer

Negotiation Details – It was a joke! I don't think they knew what they were doing. Your salary could be changed on a daily, weekly, or monthly basis.
