    Catering Manager IV Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Washington, DC
    No Offer
    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Sodexo (Washington, DC) in April 2015.

    Interview

    The interview process can be tedious but isn't difficult if you are prepared. The vast majority of the interview is "Describe a situation...." type scenarios. It's helpful to have many examples ready and notes written so you can give descriptions easily. Give as much detail as possible. I was already an employee for Sodexo when I interviewed for this position. Looking back, I should have been more specific and not assumed the interviewer already knew details of what I was describing.

    Interview Questions

    • Examples, describe a time you had to meet a deadline.
      Describe a time you had conflict with an employee.
      Describe a time and event didn't go the way you planned.

    Neutral Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Sodexo (Washington, DC) in December 2009.

    Interview

    I obtained the interview through a personal contact. Everything went well during the interview. The big barrier here was that although I have plenty of sustainability experience I had no specific experience with the food services industry. I heard back by e-mail that I had not received the position. It was a good experience even though I did not get the job.
