    Interview

    Recruiter was very professional. There were three interviews in a row. It was a long process, but the interviewers were great and made it painless. They really gave the impression that they cared about the quality of person that they chose to be a part of the team.

    Anonymous Employee
    Declined Offer
    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through other source. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at C&S Wholesale Grocers in September 2014.

    Interview

    Was contacted though Linkden and had a phone conversation with a HR manager to explain the job role. Didn't get into much detail once I said I wasn't interested in moving right away.

    Interview Questions

    Reasons for Declining

    It was out of state. They have centralized buying, which I don't find as efficient.

    Strategic Sourcing Specialist Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Hatfield, MA
    Declined Offer
    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at C&S Wholesale Grocers (Hatfield, MA) in April 2014.

    Interview

    I had a phone interview first for this entry level position, then an in-person interview with the woman who would be my boss, then another second-round interview with the Director. They offered me the job at a hilariously low salary, one that was $10,000 lower than the industry average for this type of position (and I spent weeks researching this) I made a counter offer that was $3,500 higher than their original figure, and they basically told me they had plenty of other recent college grad candidates who would be thrilled to work for what they were offering, and then they rescinded my offer. Bottom line-terrible company who knows college kids are desperate for jobs. HR was also extremely unprofessional; not returning emails or phone calls and waited a week and a half to get back to me after they said they would call the next day.

    Interview Questions

    • Do you have a lot of friends? (yes, they really asked me this.)   Answer Question

    Reasons for Declining

    clearly this company doesn't care about getting quality employees and just wants to find people that are willing to work for way less that what they are worth.

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took a weekinterviewed at C&S Wholesale Grocers (Keene, NH).

    Interview

    Applied internally and spoke with two managers and the exec. The team is constantly growing in defining what areas we are analyzing and improving our audit methods. Fairly relaxed culture, plenty of time and room for freedom in what to work on. The team focuses on operations/warehouse audits, but has many ad-hoc audit requests from finance, buying side, etc.
