I applied in-person and the process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Sysco in February 2011.
Interview Details – I was recruited away from a competitor where I was taking a lot of their business. I met with their sales director at a public location "just to talk." Then I had to go to the office to meet with the sales director and the vp of sales. I received an offer via email soon after.
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.

I applied online and the process took 4+ weeks - interviewed at Sysco in September 2013.
Interview Details – Submitted resume via CareerBuilder.com. 1st interview was with District Manager and two Marketing Associates I would be training with. Took about 1 hour. Was general interview. 2nd interview I had the VP of Sales & Marketing and the two Regional Managers. Took about 1 hour. Very intense. They want to make you shift in your seat for sure.
Interview Question – 2nd interview was very intimidating. They asked very specific questions about how I would handle certain scenarios and would evolve their questions from my answers. They def want to make you feel uncomfortable. I was told afterward that they wanted to see how you deal with high pressure situations, as how you handle it in the interview is most likely how you would handle it with an account. They are very interested in hearing that you want to build relationships & listen to what the customer wants. Answer Question
