    Outside Food Sales Representative Interview

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks - interviewed at Gordon Food Service.

    Interview Details

    Applied online through their website. First interview was a self guided video interview that I submitted online. Got a phone call not too long after for face to face interview. Followed that up with another face to face. Eventually you will ride along with a current employee. You have to be dressed up as that is their calling card compared to their competitors.

    Interview Questions
    • Sell me this pen.
      A customer wants to drink with you to celebrate a huge contract but this is prohibited. Do you do it? What if they tell you they will cancel if you don't?
