    After the application, they call to set up a phone interview. If you pass the phone interview then you will have another phone interview with the local hiring manager.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Sysco (Ankeny, IA) in December 2017.

    Interview

    Regional HR did over phone interview to pre-qualify. They followed up in two days to set up a face-to-face with local manager. Overall, very orgainized and professional call and interview.
    Face-to-face interview was very short and unorganized. Overall waste of my time and felt as manager was more worried about phone than learning about me.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Sysco (Lewisville, TX) in December 2017.

    Interview

    I was called by a Sysco recruiter out of Chicago to set up a phone interview, if your interview goes good they will forward your resume to your area manager who will then set up a interview at the location you will be working at. If you meet all the qualifications and they like what you have to say, that day you will take your road test. The road test consists of about 20 min of driving through busy intersections and some highway driving if your close to one. They also make sure you know how to hook properly to a trailer and do a pre trip inspection. Must be able to back into a bay door and drive Manuel or Standard trucks. Be prepared because they will put you in the oldest piece of junk on there lot to see if you can handle it. Once your road test is done, if you pass I was offered a verbal offer of employment the same day and took my drug screen at the facility I tested at. You will sit down with HR and go over previous employer questions and why you would be a good fit for Sysco as a driver. Two or three days after your interview ,if they like you as a candidate. They will send you a email offering you the position as a driver, Make sure to except ASAP so it doesn’t slow down the hiring process. After you accept they only have to do your background check and prove of driving record, so as long as your drug screen comes back good you are set. They will also call and give you a tentative start date, usually two weeks after your interview.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3+ weeks. I interviewed at Sysco.

    Interview

    I was contacted pretty quickly after submitting my application for a phone interview. The women seemed very nice and relaxed. Went over my background and had standard interview questions. She said she was recommended me to move further to the face-to-face interviews and that I should be contacted within 3 weeks. After 1 1/2 weeks I got online to check my application status and it was closed. I emailed the woman I interviewed with and the next day I got the email stating I was not moving further. It seems like the same thing happen to other people that have reviewed.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Sysco (Jackson, WI) in November 2017.

    Interview

    I was contacted the same day that I applied or the next day- very fast- and set up and interview with the recruiter. The recruiter was very prompt and explained a lot about the company and had some good questions. I felt it went well and did get a call the very next day to set up a phone interview with the hiring leader and the generalist. That interview also went very well and I was contacted the same day to set up the in person interview with the other VP's on site as well as the generalist. That interview was great- panel type interview is always a bit intimidating but the building was great and I walked away feeling good about the interviews and really wanting to work for Sysco. My final interview was the with the Sr. VP out of the corporate office in Houston. He was great- really good phone interview and one week later, an offer was made- which I happily accepted!
