    Supply Chain Finance Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Houston, TX

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 6+ monthsinterviewed at Sysco (Houston, TX) in September 2014.

    Interview

    The style was behavioral interviewing that had a mixture of single and dual interviewers. I was brought in to interview bright and early and met with a lot of people, ending early afternoon. So it was pretty much was the whole day... and grueling.

    The interviewers ranged from senior management to peers to not so direct reports. Except for a couple of hiccups the interviewers kept to the clock. All were very nice and at times seemed to be going out of their way to make me feel comfortable. It seemed like it was having a conversation with the interviewers in the dialog / exchange of question and answering.

    In general the interview questions were all pretty much generic / standard like "tell me about..." and then a situation. The most pointed interview questions came from the HR person. She peppered in nice corporate policies and then came the challenging questions about my background.

    They took anyone they could get to work for the money they were offering. The interview was more about the amount of money they were offering, then learning about me.

    Interview Questions

    • They use a star based interview process.... Its stupid, the interviewer needed more training on the process... he fugged the whole thing because he wanted me, and I was willing to work for the peanuts they were offering.   Answer Question

    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter – interviewed at Sysco (Cypress, TX) in July 2014.

    Interview

    I was contacted by a staffing agency, they submitted my resume Friday, got a call from Sysco acquisition Monday to come in for an interveiw Tuesday.

    The interview was mainly composed of "what would you do", and " how would you do", quesions. Nothing, really geared to the position, just mainly questions that would indicate character, and whether you are a good fit.

    After the interview, about 30 minutes later, I received a call from the staffing agency stating I had the job.

    • Be prepared to answer plenty of question regarding mistakes you have made and how you fixed it, how you handle change and other scenario types of questions.   1 Answer

    Coordinator Support Assistant Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Cypress, TX
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a staffing agency. The process took 1 dayinterviewed at Sysco (Cypress, TX) in June 2014.

    Interview

    I was hired through a staffing agency, so all was pretty normal. An interview was scheduled, I showed up, and answered questions. I interviewed with one talent acquisition person...no panel. Once the interview ended, within the hour, my agency called me with the status of the position. That was quicker than normal turnaround. The background and drug tests were already conducted by the agency.

    Interview Questions

    • There were no difficult questions. However I was asked an unexpected question..."What do you like most about being in a support role". That was a new one.   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    There was no negotiation. All negotiations are handled between the agency and the employer (client).
