    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4 days. I interviewed at Gordon Food Service in August 2015.

    Interview

    First there was a phone interview by Human Resources Department. They ask about your experience, availability and also give you questions to answer in your own words using personal experiences. If the person calling from the Human Resources Dept feel you are a good match He/She will forward your application on to the store manager. You'll receive a call in a day or two from the Store Manager and He/She sets up an in-person interview. He also gives you a couple of questions to answer based on your personal experience. The interview is no cake walk. I had 3 other interviews that same week with different stores; 2 of the three extended offers and I turned down both because of the way the interviewer answered my questions and how difficult their questions were. After all, I want to make sure the company is a good match for me as well. So I want to feel out who I will be working for and Gordon Food Services Store Manager and HR Dept impressed me. I was extended an offer the next day, which I gladly accepted, because I could see myself being apart of The Gordon Food Service Family.
