    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at National Food Group in October 2014.

    Interview

    I was contacted by a recruiter through LinkedIn regarding the open position and submitted my resume. I went through a phone interview with HR, an in-person interview with HR and the CFO that I would be reporting to, and a 2nd in-person interview with HR, the CFO, and the President of the company.

    Interview

    Super excited going into the interview, but highly disappointed. Doing research on the company, the work environment seemed so fun and happy... fun is even one of their core values, and they strive to be the best place to start your career, so going into the interview I was looking forward to the panel of interviewers being happy, friendly, and smiling.. sadly it was none of the above. The main guy doing all the talking was monotone and made no facial expressions what so ever. He just sat there reading questions off his ipad, and occasionally I would be cut off while speaking. They shot off questions like rapid fire, asked if I had any questions and we were done. Super rude, and super disappointing.

    Application

    The process took a dayinterviewed at National Food Group (Novi, MI) in May 2012.

    Interview

    I submitted an application, they called me for an initial phone interview, then contacted me by email to set up a one on one interview. Everyone was exceptionally nice, and the reason the position was opening was because they are rapidly expanding.

    Make sure you know about the company from their website or you won't get past the phone interview. They offer competitive pay and seem to be very involved in their family atmosphere.

    Interview

    They ask you general questions like where do you want to be in five years. Then they ask you personal stuff like if you have kids which is illegal. But they have employees interview you so they don't know HR policies. At least you know who you'll be working with.

    Negotiation

    Was able to negotiate but I regret taking the job.

    Application

    I applied through other source. The process took 2 daysinterviewed at National Food Group (Novi, MI) in February 2011.

    Interview

    Contacted by the Director of Business Development via phone. Conversation was very upbeat and the Direrctor was very talkative. I felt that I was being "Sold" on the sales position with the carrot being an unlimited salary potential. After the phone interview, I was asked to visit the Main Office for a Face-to-Face interview which would consist of the Director and up to three members of the management team. The second interview was conducted in a room with two additional management members. Questions seemed routine and interview process was un-eventful. Office personnel and staff that I had contact with were friendly and approachable. Appeared to be a very nice & casual work environment.

    Interview Questions

    Negotiation

    Non-exsistant.
