    Banquet Server Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Chicago, IL
    Accepted Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at Sodexo (Chicago, IL) in July 2016.

    Interview

    I went through the hiring process with Sodexo I was hired found a job that I was hired for was not what I wanted I'm a banquet server and incredible at what I do so if you can find something in that area I would appreciate it

    Negotiation

    Are you said they wanted $15 an hour and the process to be hired took a month-and-a-half because there was a mix-up with my application and it took two weeks for a background check and once I was hired I realized it was the job I wanted they offered me another dollar 25 an hour to stay and run the whole law division at Northwestern I declined

    Retail Manager Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Boston, MA

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Sodexo (Boston, MA).

    Interview

    The first step is a phone interview with a recruiter. Once that is completed I received a one on one Situational interview style interview with the hiring manager. It is protocol that they follow the interview guide verbatim and grade you on a scale. The questions are fairly easy as long as you can answer and talk to each situation in a professional manner.

    Interview Questions

    • Tell me about a time you had to deal with multiple priorities and deadlines at one time. How did you about it? What was the outcome.   1 Answer

    Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate

    Negative Experience

    Interview

    Applied online via job board. Received email from HR rep 1 week later outlining the job location and salary range with a link to schedule a phone interview with a list of 10 detailed questions to be answered and emailed back before the interview. Scheduled phone interview for the following week. Phone interview: HR stated that the location in the JD was actually inaccurate and it was actually 35 miles further than the location which was listed (but they couldn't disclose in which direction due to "extreme secrecy" around an open bid). Also stated they couldn't discuss ANY job responsibilities (again, extreme secrecy) so instead spent the entire time talking about how GREAT Sodexo is! Also, we never reviewed the 10 questions submitted in advance. Tell me again, why did we have to set up an interview? Ended conversation with "should hear something 'any day' and will get back to you." Then nothing. After 1 week, I sent a follow up email. Received a response that they still don't have a signed contract, but should have one "any day" and details will be sent to me. This follow up/'any day now' reply went on for nearly 2 months! Finally, 2.5 months later, received an email saying I wasn't chosen for an "interview" but was strongly encouraged to continue searching for opportunities within Sodexo. Really?! I understand that limited information is required sometimes and I definitely understand not being chosen for an interview, but when you string your applicants along for 2+ months, there's a problem in your hiring process.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Sodexo in April 2016.

    Interview

    Behavioral types of questions were asked on past or current experience. Limited time to discuss actual role. Felt rushed in my opinion. Approx 1 hour and about 7 questions I think. Panel interview.
