    Logistics Analyst Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Grand Rapids, MI
    Anonymous Employee in Grand Rapids, MI
    Application Details

    I applied online – interviewed at Gordon Food Service in August 2012.

    Interview Details

    I have a background in warehousing and after completing my bachelors in business I applied for this position. I was first contacted by a HR representative, a rep I have had a rough past with, to schedule and interview. A lot of the questions were about experience which, based on the information I received from a friend in this position, there is no way to get experience for the type of software they use for product acquisition. They seemed very unimpressed with my achievements and proceeded to give a not-so-soft let down by asking me if I was capable of dressing up every day to come to work and if I could sit still at a workstation. Funny since one was dressed in a tie die mumu and the other looked like a bottle of mustard in all yellow clothing.

    I applied through college or university. The process took 3 daysinterviewed at Gordon Food Service in October 2011.

    Interview Details

    Round-robin type hiring style. Moved from team to team getting interviewed 3 times. The people were reasonable, but it was a bit of a whirlwind. There were no breaks, and you got a lot of the same questions over and over again.

    Negotiation Details
    They'll talk a lot about how great the company culture is, ignore it. They'll also talk about how great the benefits are, but they really are just decent.

    Interview Details

    I had three interviews with the recruiter and HR at Gordon Foodservice. There were alot of questions including a few that were unexpected. One question 'Describe your perfect day at work' believe it or not seemed to be the toughest. I am not sure what kind of answer they were looking for.

    Business Analyst Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Grand Rapids, MI
    Anonymous Employee in Grand Rapids, MI
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 6+ weeksinterviewed at Gordon Food Service in April 2010.

    Interview Details

    My first interview was a phone interview with HR and it was a behavioral interview that lasted 45 minutes. It was almost 2 1/2 weeks later and they called me back for a 1:1 group/panel interview that consisted of two potential co-workers and the hiring manager. That interview was mostly a conversational interview. After that interview, they called me back a day after that interview and set up another 1:1 interview a week later with the hiring manager, his boss, and an HR Representative. That interview was mostly conversational - a few behavioral questions towards the end of it. They told me it would be a couple of weeks and they would get back to me. It was down to me and another candidate for the position.

    Interview Questions
    • Describe a time when you had a difficult person to work with that may not have been on your team, but you still needed to get information from them that may not be a priority to them, but it is to you. How did you handle that?   Answer Question
