    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Sysco.

    Interview

    Applied on their website; Received an email from a recruiter to provide times that were good to set up a phone interview; After a few days of no response, I received an email with the phone screening questions attached in Word form and was told to fill out and send back (didn't change the format or anything, it actually had the "phone interviewers overall assessment" section left in at the bottom); a few days later, received an email requesting times to have a phone interview; interview was scheduled and 45 minutes prior to interview, received a call from a different recruiter asking to switch it to a Skype interview; rescheduled Skype interview for the next day; interview was a mix of standard questions the interviewer seemed annoyed to have to ask and some more job-specific questions; few days later, received email asking for times to set up another Skype interview with a higher up; interview scheduled, but time of interview came and went with no call from interviewer. I didn't have any contact information for the interviewer, only the recruiters so I called and emailed them and didn't receive a response until 2 hours after our scheduled Skype call. The response was that the interviewer was busy and they'd be in touch to reschedule. I didn't hear anything, so 2 days later I sent a follow up asking if they still wanted to reschedule. I very quickly received a phone call and email from two recruiters and we had a Skype interview set up; At time of interview, I received a phonecall instead of a Skype with no apology or mention of the missed meeting the prior week.

    Change in time/format with no notice, lack of communication and cancellations at every part of the process...either seeing how we handle all this was part of the interview OR there's some room for improvement...

    Interview Questions

    • First interview was pretty much all generic stuff...strengths, weaknesses, handle stress, leadership experiences, etc. Second "interview" was grilling on the timeline of my job history, why I left certain positions, grilling on my education choices and if my spouse would be OK with moving if I were offered a position. Nothing on skills, experiences or abilities in second interview.   Answer Question

    I applied online. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at Sysco in May 2018.

    Interview

    Wasn’t professional they were cursing and extremely negative. They offered me the position but I decided to go with another company. It seemed like they didn’t set the drivers up for success there.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Sysco (Houston, TX) in April 2018.

    Interview

    Short and sweet - this obviously was a case of being in compliance with corp. policy. They already had an internal candidate picked out but had to interview others for compliance reasons. Waste of time

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at Sysco.

    Interview

    The first step of the process was a general conversation to get to know you and very general standard questions, nothing crazy. I felt that the interview went well and that the people were very professional about the process.

    Order Selector Interview

    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Sysco (Los Angeles, CA) in February 2018.

    Interview

    Quick and Easy took a few days between them processing your online application and getting a return call from their HR headquarters in Chicago. Then you still have to go in for an in-person interview, where you then get sent for a drug test and physical ability strength test. All in all I would rate the process 9 out 10!
