    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 4 weeks - interviewed at US Foods in September 2011.

    Interview Details

    Initially contacted by a contract recruiter. Very organized, professional, and informative about the company culture and environment. Two rounds of calls with recruiter, 1 hour call with senior executive, face-to-face interviews with 5 mid-level executives. Direct, specific experience in your field is not the onlly concern. Must demonstrate energy, enthusiasm for the position, capacity for learning.

    Interview Questions

    Negotiation Details
    Large salary range for each position but fairly formulaic with how offers are built. Based on years experience in field, industry, and current salary. Negotiable on base, not too flexible with perks, sign-ons, etc.

    Interview Details

    Focus focus focus on being proactive and presenting solutions. Understand the distribution centers-and call them 'divisions'-are your primary customer. If they are set up for success, they will have successful sales with final (end paying) customers. Don't try to point a finger or deflect blame but look at the root cause and present a solution.

    Application Details

    I applied online. 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 Questions
    • 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

    Interview Details

    Typical interview process. Typical behavioral interview questions. Lots of forewarning that the district credit offices will behave badly, no financial controls and districts will make things difficult for the corporate credit people. Be ready to answer confrontational situation questions.

    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took a day - interviewed at US Foods in August 2011.

    Interview Details

    Was sent to wrong building, so was late. interview was with 1 technical lead who didn't seem to know how to conduct an interview. Almost no java questions. He gave me a laptop and asked me to solve a logic problem - it was on his final exam at college; Code a printout for this pattern, should work for any input int (ex: 5):
    X000X
    0X0X0
    00X00
    0X0X0
    X000X
    (I wasn't able to solve it).
    Seemed to be a small onshore development team. I would not have taken the job if offered.
