    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at DS Services of America (Austin, TX) in January 2013.

    Interview

    Hiring process was very lengthy, took more than 3 weeks from initial contact to start date
    There was a informal conversation with HR, then applied online, then phone interview with Ops Manager, then in person with Ops manager that last four hours!
    The job description was sparse and the interview indicated that it was a office management job. Later, that was not the case.

    Accountant Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Atlanta, GA

    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at DS Services of America (Atlanta, GA) in April 2015.

    Interview

    I had a phone interview with their corporate recruiter who made a racist remark. I would not work for this company for all the money in the world. I hope senior management sees this so they know how inappropriate their Human Resources department is. I think it is despicable that such a person is involved in hiring process for a company. Atlanta is a racially diverse town in which many minorities live and are seeking employment. Obviously, this company is not progressive or at least their Human Resources Department is not.

    Interview Questions

    • After initial breaking the ice type questions, the complete interview questions were all behaviorally based formatted.

      TELL ME about A TIME when...AND BE SPECIFIC?

      They asked all of the questions in this format and wanted to know your specific answers and your rationale for doing so.

      They wanted to hear my real life situations and how I handled things in various work type scenarios.   Answer Question

    Reasons for Declining

    The company seemed to have a large amount of turnover in many facets of their business. Route operations, call center staff and many mid level managers as well.

    The HR team on the interview panel also seemed a bit disconnected to the business as they were covering large geographical areas and seemed overwhelmed and lacked local business knowledge.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at DS Services of America.

    Interview

    Very nice People, but hard interview. It's more of an interview board rather than a one on one. Some tough questions, but the biggest expectation from them I believe is honesty. Be straight with them and they'll be straight with you. Overall good experience. Again Be honest and straight forward.
