    Senior Procurement Analyst Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Keene, NH
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    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.

    Interview Questions

    • Back ground experience. How do I feel about Excel? Process improvements? Experience with SQL. Nothing out of the blue. It was more a conversation and normal dialogue than an interview. No awkward silence.   Answer Question

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 5+ months. I interviewed at C&S Wholesale Grocers (Keene, NH) in April 2015.

    Interview

    Their HR Department needs to rethink its processes. I applied for a position fresh out of college and received an interview. I did not have the experience they were looking for, but that is understandable and I was grateful for the opportunity. Fast forward a year, and you can't even get a reply from their HR Department! Their turnover rate is very high and they must be struggling to fill positions. The problem is compounded when they don't even get back to qualified candidates. I have seen that the position I originally applied for over 18 months ago, has been posted 4 times since they told me I did not have the experience for the position. Clearly, your hiring methods need re-evaluation if you are having that much trouble keeping somebody in that role. Try getting back to potential employees in a timely manner and maybe you will get the quality of candidate you are looking for.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at C&S Wholesale Grocers (Keene, NH) in May 2014.

    Interview

    Phone interview from a friendly person in HR. I was asked a number of questions about my background, experiences, and skills. The interview felt more like a placement interview than a filtering interview, though that may have been just the skill of the interviewer since I was not offered a job in the end. She was careful to ask me about what things I would be interested to do, describe the job in great detail, and tell me about things like salary, company environment, etc.

    Interview Questions

    • There was nothing difficult or unexpected asked. Everything was a question I had heard before from somewhere else. All very straightforward.   Answer Question

    Application

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

    Interview

    Applied internally and spoke with two managers and the exec. The team is constantly growing in defining what areas we are analyzing and improving our audit methods. Fairly relaxed culture, plenty of time and room for freedom in what to work on. The team focuses on operations/warehouse audits, but has many ad-hoc audit requests from finance, buying side, etc.
