    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Sysco Canada.

    Interview

    I applied through an employee referral. The initial communication was a bit informal. A friend suggested I apply for the opening and I didn't hear back from the recruiter until he shot me an email asking for an interview. I drove 3 hours to get to the interview.
    At the interview, there was a District Manager, and a recruiter. They asked plenty of moderate to hard questions about sales, customer service, and meeting objectives. This was not an interview for an entry level position. This was a much more strategic interview than I had previously gone to.
    Anyways, about an hour later, I was told a short list of candidates would be selected for a second interview.

    Interview Questions

    • Discuss a time when you worked really hard to satisfy a customer but didn't get a sale. How did it affects your sales skills, at the moment, and how did you compensate to make your next effort a successful close?   1 Answer
