    Had two phone interviews. I was called into the hospital and had a peer interview with five other managers. The interview was very positive. They explained about working in a hospital and what the job was about. That the position would be cleaning the location that the hospital owed outside of the hospital.

    Patient Services Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Rockville, MD
    Declined Offer
    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Sodexo (Rockville, MD) in April 2018.

    Interview

    More than the process, understand the organization first...Sodexo HR is top-heavy, networks among themselves, doesn't reply on LinkedIn. If they look down their nose at you, they let your resume sit in the ATS database, instead of giving short-handed Directors external candidates to choose from. You can tell HR is an old school "kiss up, manage down" group.
    Sodexo won't acknowledge management turnover in large health care accounts.

    Overall, Sodexo seems to discourage candidates from outside its industry...they like to promote from within, they say. However, outside Food Service is where the customer-centric strategies come from. They prefer them young and just out of school. But, the young can't always offer the insight to satisfy and retain value-driven accounts.

    Patient Ambassador Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Pocatello, ID
    No Offer
    Negative Experience

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Sodexo (Pocatello, ID).

    Interview

    I applied online. I received a msg that was incomplete on my vc mail. I had no idea who was calling back, nor did they leave a callback phone. I called back the phone showing. It was a cell phone not a business phone according to my search. Msg was this is HR lve msg. I gave my name, that I received a call and could interview on certain days. 4 days later. Another phone msg, much more detail, with the same c/b phone. Which I responded to within minutes to same HR person. Didn't hear back, but received the canned thanks but no thanks email the following day at 5pm. If HR takes the time to call you, then you must have something they are interesting in. But the follow through was atrocious. I have never had an HR professional not leave a detailed msg. Then not return your inquiry when you made attempts to connect with them. I found this extremely unprofessional. If this is how they attempt to "interview" new hires. Professional people want an HR experience that isn't sloppy and disorganized.

    Negative Experience

    Interview

    A series of three interviews in which I felt as though I was led on. Met staff members and other employees outside of the department as if I was getting the job. The Chef basically told me to get out while I still can because he hates his job. It really felt like my time was wasted
