    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Sysco in October 2016.

    Interview

    So Far I have only completed the phone interview. Marilynne from HR called to schedule a phone interview two days in advance. The interview lasted abut 20 minutes and was mostly about previous employers and reasons for leaving. The second part of the interview was why I would be a good fit for the company. I should hear back by the end of the week about an in person behavioral interview.

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Sysco in June 2016.

    Interview

    Had the initial phone interview. Lots of questions about my experience. There were also questions about how you would handle certain situations that could arise. Total interview lasted about 20/25 minutes. The lady doing the interview, Marilyn was very professional and courteous. Have to wait to hear back on an in person interview with at least two more company reps.

    One large meeting with the Managers who were doing the hiring, then a follow up meeting then I had to go and meet the VP of sales for another discussion or better yet to get his approval. Very nice people all the way around.

    Interview

    Saw job posted online. Called an old friend that works for Sysco. He had me send him my resume. I then got a call from the district sales manager to have a 1:1 meeting. It went well and he said there would be a 3 panel interview next. The 3 panel interview went very well. They made the atmosphere feel comfortable. They each had a copy of my resume and questioned me about my past employment experience. Then they informed me that the corporate questions were next. They each took turns asking the corporate questions. The questions are mostly behavioral and they mostly want to see how you respond or have responded in certain situations. After the corporate questions, there was a bit more friendly banter and a chance for me to address any concerns that they or I had. No offer Yet, but hopeful!

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Sysco (Traverse City, MI) in September 2017.

    Interview

    Apply online, lengthy forms, but nothing out of the ordinary really. Recieved a phone screen right away as I have 5+ years in hospitality management, so I believed I was well qualified, coming from the other side. Phone screen was typical, very polite, basic personality questions. Set up first face to face interview a couple days later with regional sales manager. Met roughly halfway from home office (an hour drive for me), STAR questions, basic sales concepts, wwyd in this situation, nothing too difficult or interesting. Was told if selected for second interview would be at home office with multiple team leaders, would know by the end of the week. Had to call at 5pm Friday, no answer, left message. No reply until wednesday the next week, said more interviews had canceled, and rescheduled, would know end of week. Had to call 5pm Friday, no answer, left message. Sent e-mail monday, no reply until thursday, ask to come in for second interview at home office, scheduled for middle of next week. Drive 3.5hrs to home office, have good face to face with HR, discuss pay, benefits, ask general questions, like do you enjoy working here? etc.. meet with VP of sales, make strong argument that my qualifications are satisfactory and that I am committed to succeeding. Says word for word, "well I think this went very well." Says we will make a decision and get back to you middle of next week. Middle of next week comes, get very non descript auto-mail that they've chose someone else. tl;dr, phone screen, face to face, wait forever, drive forever, mutiple interviews, very good feedback, still not good enough. Felt strung along.

    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.
