I applied online and the process took 2+ weeks - interviewed at C&S Wholesale in November 2012.

Negotiation Details – There was not much room for negotiation. I would try but they have their set guidelines as to what they will offer/pay.

Warehouse Supervisor Interview

Warehouse Supervisor
Hartford, CT

I applied online - interviewed at C&S Wholesale 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 Question – 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

Internal Auditor Interview

Internal Auditor
Keene, NH

I applied through a recruiter and the process took 1 week - interviewed at C&S Wholesale.

Interview Details – 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.
