    General Office Help Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Brattleboro, VT
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Brattleboro, VT
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 1+ weekinterviewed at C&S Wholesale Grocers.

    Interview Details

    Participated in a one-way video interview about 9 days ago and have yet to get a response (though I felt it went well and hope to get one eventually). Interview questions (9 total) were for such a simple position, so they were not very difficult. Be prepared to have questions about specific times when you have had difficulty dealing with a deadline, manager, etc. You have 30 seconds to prepare for your answer once you see the question. They are basically trying to see how you think on your feet - they also asked about what you would do if you couldn't meet a deadline or what you would do if a teammate wasn't delivering, etc.

    Interview Questions
    • The most difficult questions was perhaps when they asked what it takes to most effectively manage me as an employee. I think I was prepared in all ways except this one, but ended up thinking of some pretty useful answers. Something like: positive or negative feedback is appreciated (because no one wants to get fired for something they could have changed if they had only known), and reasonably comfortable interaction/friendly environment, etc.   Answer Question

    Interview Details

    Contacted for phone interview and was asked if I would like to interview for 2 positions. I went on 5 separate interviews which seemed to be going great. I was told I would be contacted by end of week almost a month ago. Never heard a word, even my email went ignored. After 5 interviews I should at least be told I did not get job if anything.

    Interview Details

    Did an in person interview first at my university through recruiting, then was offered to travel to the company to interview there in a full day interview. Overall experience was great. I felt like the questions weren't that hard if you were qualified for the job and are interested in the position.

    Application Details

    I applied in-person. The process took 2 daysinterviewed at C&S Wholesale Grocers.

    Interview Details

    The hiring process is the easy part. If you can get your foot in the door, the thing you have to prove is if you can do it. And this is something you should strive to prove to yourself, not the supervisors. that way, it will shine though. they will acknowledge you if you're good at it. the interview is the same. but its also a walk-through. this way you could determine for yourself if you're capable of handling the work.

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Keene, NH
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took a dayinterviewed at C&S Wholesale Grocers in May 2014.

    Interview Details

    Phone interview from a friendly person in HR. I was asked a number of questions about my background, experiences, and skills. The interview felt more like a placement interview than a filtering interview, though that may have been just the skill of the interviewer since I was not offered a job in the end. She was careful to ask me about what things I would be interested to do, describe the job in great detail, and tell me about things like salary, company environment, etc.

    Interview Questions
    • There was nothing difficult or unexpected asked. Everything was a question I had heard before from somewhere else. All very straightforward.   Answer Question

    Application Details

    I applied online – interviewed at C&S Wholesale Grocers in October 2013.

    Interview Details

    Horrible experience! The recruiter (Judy/Julie?) gave me such an unrealistic job description - it is the reason I didn't get the job. HR covered for her but operations thought I was a complete idiot. It was obvious they thought I did no research on the company.

    Interview Questions
    • Don't ask the recruiter ANYTHING! She will cover for her lack of knowledge by MAKING UP LIES about the job and schedule.   Answer Question
