    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4 weeksinterviewed at US Foods (Plymouth, MN).

    Interview

    Phone interview, brought in for in person interview where I was grilled by two old guys. Seriously, the questions were not only fast and furious, but they expected Master/PhD level conditionals with entry level pay...yeah, that's truly not going to happen when I already have 5+ years experience. They seemed rude and taken aback when I did have questions that I wanted to ask. I NEVER received and update about how I did until I called the guy (he gave me his business card) and asked when he said "Oh, you should have gotten an auto generated letter saying no. We actually put the position out again we didn't find anyone that fit" at this point he started laughing softly, which was not only creepy, but deeply rude. He then asked how I got his number and when I said that he and his partner gave me each one he said "I don't remember that"............so was he drunk? Idiot, I know I dodged a bullet!

    I applied online – interviewed at US Foods (Lexington, SC) in March 2015.

    Interview

    Was in a group interview we had a quick tour and one on one interviews. Questions was based on past warehouse experience and safety. I was told my application would be sent to HR to do background check and to keep checking my emails. It has been 9 days and still nothing. Kinda sucks when you really don't know what is going on or the status.

    I applied online. The process took 3 daysinterviewed at US Foods in January 2015.

    Interview

    The interview was extremely casual at a local restaurant. The interviewer seemed rushed & disengaged from the beginning. The major interest seemed to be in who I already know and might be able to bring to the table.
