    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.

    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

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took a weekinterviewed at C&S Wholesale Grocers.

    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.

    Business Analyst Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Keene, NH
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Keene, NH
    Application Details

    I applied through college or university. The process took a dayinterviewed at C&S Wholesale Grocers in November 2011.

    Interview Details

    Talked to a recruiter at Career Fair on campus - gave him my resume and was asked for on-campus interview. Completed campus interview and invited to on-site interview in Keene.

    Flown into Hartford airport and rented car to drive to Keene. The night before interviews there will be a dinner with current BAs to talk about the experience (they say that it has no bearing on the interview process, but that's not wholly true). The next day you will go to a house near the corporate headquarters and have 3 one-on-one or two-on-one interviews, after which you will tour the corporate HQ and then drive to one of their warehouses to tour.

    I received my offer ~1 week later.

    Interview Questions
    • Question in on-campus interview question (about Senior Design experience):

      "Why is it optimal to place fast-moving SKUs nearest to the doors?"

      Everything else in all interview stages was behavioral, all standard interview questions.
