    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Sysco (Phoenix, AZ) in August 2016.

    Interview

    Quickly contacted by Human Resources for first interview. They had me drive 2 1/2 hours away for it. Mistake on their part. Waste of time and no apology or mileage reimbursement. I would wind up going through 3 more in person interviews over the span of 6 more weeks. After it was all said and done and that they were sooooo impressed with me I wound up getting a form letter rejection email . This company has zero class.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Sysco (Ankeny, IA) in June 2015.

    Interview

    It was a very long arduous process. A total of 3 weeks to get through the first 2 interviews which were actually 3. Phone interview with HR that was approximately 45 min. Then 2 back to back interviews with the local district managers which were also 45 min a piece. Walking out after them the second district manager told me that they were going to set up my 3rd interview with the regional manager. The next day I received a form letter from HR informing me that I did not get the job. After all that time I found out that they just decided not to hire anyone at that time. I had someone in the company that filled me in on that part.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Sysco (Chicago, IL) in March 2015.

    Interview

    All behavioral questions in first interview. Interviewer was professional and personal. Interviewer encourages applicants to have questions about company and quality of life. I'd focus more on the behavioral aspect of this process than personal achievements.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Sysco in January 2014.

    Interview

    I applied online and was excited to receive an email informing me that I will get a phone interview. The woman on the phone was nice and the interview was very basic. After the phone interview, I was informed that I would get a face to face with the area sales manager. I met him at the local Panera Bread. We talked for about an hour and after, he scheduled for me to meet with his boss. After the first two interviews, I figured that the third would be cake walk. It was nothing of the sort. I was blindsided by how tough the interview was. I thought that I had completely lost all hope of getting hired, however, near the very end of the interview, I was able to turn it around and get a final interview. Now walking into the final interview, I feel that the recruiters that were in this interview had their mind made up from the start that I was not going to get this job. i immediately had to go on the defensive trying to defend my prior work history industry. All in all, I feel I had to jump through too many hoops and at the end felt I was being attacked.

    The process took 3+ weeks. I interviewed at Sysco (Bakersfield, CA) in July 2009.

    Interview

    Interviewed first with the District manager, who then referred me to the Corporate staff. I interviewed with the Sales Manager, the VP of HR, and the VP of Sales. Interview process was about 10-15 behavioral interview questions.

    Quickly, within a week, I received a letter thanking me for my time, but they had no current position available that fit my "talents".
