Lead Analyst Interview

Lead Analyst

I applied through a recruiter and the process took 2 months - interviewed at US Foods.

Interview Details – Slow initial communication from HR. Took quite some time from initial contact until getting an interview. Interviews are conducted with 4-6 people including senior leadership, management, and peers. Quick response after interview.

Interview Question – There really wasn't any unexpected questions. As should be done with any interview, make sure you know at least a few things about the company so that when they ask questions about their business you won't be clueless.   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – Not difficult, compensation was fair. Potential to negotiate more vacation time.

Senior Analyst Interview

Senior Analyst
Rosemont, IL

I applied online and the process took 3 weeks - interviewed at US Foods in August 2013.

Interview Details – I had one prescreening interview over the phone, then interviewed several dept heads in the area. There were no difficult questions - the interview was more like a casual conversation. Overall everyone was very helpful and nice, the HR person kept in touch throughout the process, though at one point I went a week or two without hearing anything.

Interview Question – I had one analytical question that was meant to show my thought process, it was not difficult, one of the questions similar to "How many piano tuners are there in Chicago?".   Answer Question
