    Business Analyst Interview

    Anonymous Employee
    Anonymous Employee
    Application Details

    I applied through college or university – interviewed at C&S Wholesale Grocers.

    Interview Details

    People were extremely friendly and the whole process was easy. They were very accommodating towards travel and took care of everything. I first had a one on one interview at my college campus, where the college recruiter was a delight. It was a very behavioral based interview and it was more like a conversation. The next and final found was at the company itself and consisted of a series of interviews with pairs of people. This was more intimidating and a little more serious than just a conversation.

    I applied online. The process took 4+ monthsinterviewed at C&S Wholesale Grocers.

    Interview Details

    I had a very uncomfortable "first round" video interview with C&S. The online interview is a video that is recorded of your self answering simple questions, which was not uncomfortable. Looking at myself answering question gave me a very unsettling feeling, I am not a actor so looking at myself while answering questions made me feel extremely insecure during the interview.

    General Office Help Interview

    Anonymous Employee 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

    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.

    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.
