    Finance Interview

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Sysco in October 2016.

    Interview

    The process is very disconnected. They use the corporate office for scheduling. There is a phone interview then you are passed to local interview. The local interview and discussion of next steps are very disconnected from corporate or market managers. They give you a card and say to call with questions and answer initially and give positive updates and then corporate comes with some generic no thank you. Throughout process was encouraged as a great fit and next steps were market interview and discussed potential of larger roles in bigger markets and then corporate sends letter same day saying moving a different direction. When speaking to local hiring manager again... they are clueless as to why that email was received and says recruiter will call and clear things up. Recruiter doesn't call just sends canned response. Very poor communication and treatment of potential employees and string you along and corporate interference makes local appear to have no control and no decision power. Would have just appreciated honesty and a large company to better connected.

    Difficult Interview

    Interview

    The most disorganized place. They first sent me an email to set up a phone interview in 3 to 5 days i accepted the invite. Day three they sent me a invite not for the phone interview no but for a job fair. I went in and it was 4 people there who i guess had a set time to be there thinking it was a job fair i signed in they said oh if nobody can see you come back with a set day and time. Excuse me i thought i was set for an interview. They then seen people who one knew someone inside because these three men came in after me and was referred to the job and told everyone else to go home. Why tell someone they have an interview then say come to a job fair to then say no set up an interview. Most disorganized and rude place

    Talent Acquisition Training Specialist Interview

    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Sysco (Houston, TX) in August 2016.

    Interview

    Received an auto-generated email from the Talent Acquisition team missing contact information and hyperlinks requesting me to respond for a good time to have a phone screen. I found the recruiter contact on LinkedIn on her personal page and responded as to when I was available during the 3-5 day window they provided. 24 hours passed with no response. 48 hours after my response to a request for dates and times, I was told she was booked until 2 days after the original window. I responded that I would make myself available on that date. Again, no response. I emailed her the day before the date we were to speak to confirm times, only to be informed that she had been pulled into meetings and would not be available for another 3 days. As a seasoned professional, I am appalled at the lack of organization and follow up by so called "Talent Acquisition" teams. I know a "stalling tactic" when I see it. Seems like the REALLY need a TRAINER in Talent Acquisitions.
