    Human Resources Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 6+ weeksinterviewed at Sysco in March 2014.

    Interview Details

    Two sets of interviews - one initial one to simply weed out the bad applicants and another for decision-making. The first one was one of those generic types of interviews where they ask you situation/behavioral questions and the second was with the hiring manager(s) (mine was with a panel of 2 people). The offer letter came in a little while after that. Not quick, so don't hold your breath. It turned out really well for me.

    Interview Questions
    • They asked about things on my Cover Letter and my Resume (the ones they were most interested in) so you'll want to have that out in front of you when you do the second interview.   Answer Question
    Negotiation Details
    No negotiation on my part. The pay was way more than I imagined so I was grateful took it.

    Sales Representative Interview

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at Sysco in January 2014.

    Interview Details

    I applied online and was excited to receive an email informing me that I will get a phone interview. The woman on the phone was nice and the interview was very basic. After the phone interview, I was informed that I would get a face to face with the area sales manager. I met him at the local Panera Bread. We talked for about an hour and after, he scheduled for me to meet with his boss. After the first two interviews, I figured that the third would be cake walk. It was nothing of the sort. I was blindsided by how tough the interview was. I thought that I had completely lost all hope of getting hired, however, near the very end of the interview, I was able to turn it around and get a final interview. Now walking into the final interview, I feel that the recruiters that were in this interview had their mind made up from the start that I was not going to get this job. i immediately had to go on the defensive trying to defend my prior work history industry. All in all, I feel I had to jump through too many hoops and at the end felt I was being attacked.

    Customer Service Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Philadelphia, PA
    Application Details

    I applied through a staffing agency. The process took 2 daysinterviewed at Sysco in October 2013.

    Interview Details

    Interview was amazing.. There isn't much you could ask that an applicant would be able to answer that would steer you to believe whether this person is going to be good and what he/she does. Be yourself. The person doing the interview asked about how my night was the night before and much about the job I currently worked in. Also was very genuine when asking about personal life. I felt very comfortable in being able to answer the questions.
