    Sales Associate/Cashier Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Cincinnati, OH
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Gordon Food Service (Cincinnati, OH) in August 2019.

    Interview

    One on one, three different interviews with management. Each one provided a very relaxed, down to earth approach. I not only found it very welcoming but, very much appreciated since having been on the job hunt for many months. Each manager projected the same personality and same approach - which is a good sign of the type of management in itself.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Gordon Food Service (Wyoming, MI) in February 2020.

    Interview

    Initial phone screening with T.A Specialist, on-site panel interview, final phone call w/ Director. Was able to meet with some of the team members to learn more about the company, role expectations, and the current team. It was a great experience, I was asked some great questions, and felt like my career goals aligned well. I also had some time to ask questions at the interview. Felt like they truly valued my time throughout the interview process! As a candidate moving through the process, I always felt that GFS valued my time.

    Administrative Assistant Interview

    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Gordon Food Service (Douglasville, GA) in December 2019.

    Interview

    Initiated by a 30 minute phone call which only discussed my job history and comfort levels of systems requested in the posting. Have your resume in front of you to reference. This was scheduled within 2 days via an electronic scheduling system with a follow up call to verify interest. I then was scheduled for an in person interview within 2 days of getting an email of going to the next step. The interview was set with the director of the department and lasted 1.5 hours. Discussed many behavioral questions and "tell me about a time when" situations. Small discussion about the company and what is expected in the role. Interviewer was not dressed professionally and did not seem like they wanted to be there. Unprepared in the interview and had to review the questions prior to having me answer. About 10-12 "HR Required" Behavioral Questions. Do not use the same company in the answers you provide. Job position was not matching to the job description and required much more training than they were willing to pay for. Brought in other workers to talk privately to during the interview who were walking past. Talked negatively about the company in terms of some internal issues/ identifying people and demotions/terminations due to problems that occurred. Not appropriate for an interview. No negativity towards the company, just an underwhelming interview.

    Interview Questions

    • Tell me about a time you were faced with conflicting priorities. (How did you resolve the conflict? Was it effective? Why or why not?)   Answer Question
    • Discuss a time when you had to deal with major change in your work process or job duties. How did you prepare for the change? How did you respond in this situation?   Answer Question

    Accounting Interview

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Gordon Food Service (Wyoming, MI) in January 2019.

    Interview

    I applied on their website and within 2-3 weeks I received a request for a phone interview. After the phone interview, I received a request to schedule a in-person interview. This took a while since they like to interview multiple candidates at once, to meet with multiple departments. The interview process took place at the main HQ with 3 other candidates. We each were taken to a room to meet with a specific department within accounting. We had 30 minutes with each department. There were 4 departments. For the most part, each department asked similar questions, but there were many opportunities to ask questions. The interviewing personnel were all very nice. Even though I didn't get an offer, I thought it was a great process.
