    I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at C&S Wholesale Grocers.

    The first interview was with a recruiter and only after that the actual department managers get to question a prospective employee. Everyone is pretty friendly. Ask to see the office during the interview to avoid first day scare.

    I applied online. I interviewed at C&S Wholesale Grocers in March 2016.

    Interview

    Submitted application online. Got a call four days later from HR to interview face to face in a week. Was given a tour when I got there. Met with warehouse supervisor for interview for approximately 30 mins. He read from a script not hard questions at all, but he asked the same questions throughout trying to trip me up on my experience. All in all it was a good interview. After the interview I was escorted to HR and was told that I was hired pending background and drug test.

    Negotiation

    My advice is this. Wear casual clothes and bring a binder or portfolio that will make you interested in the job. Stay positive, smile and act friendly as much as you can. Don't let the managers feel uncomfortable with you and show them you want to work at C&S and you enjoy it. Depends if you like the job or not. After the interview phase you be checked for backgrounds and drug test.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at C&S Wholesale Grocers (Keene, NH).

    Interview

    Fairly simple. 1 quick phone call with the recruiter, she told me they want to move fairly quickly. I had an in person interview scheduled for next week the same day as the phone call.

    In person was pleasant. I liked the hiring manager and VP. The atmosphere was a little intimidating. Huge room, lots of cubes and a lot of younger aged employees. Overall, they were nice and on time. Engaged and happy to be talking to me.
