    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at Gordon Food Service (Fort Lauderdale, FL) in September 2015.

    Interview

    The interview process began with an email to began a video interview. The video interview can be done with an apple app. It had about 20 questions and you can redo your video answer in case you don't like your first go around. I took notes and redid mine a few times. They give you 24 hours or so to complete but I did mine in about 2 hours so I didn't look different in the videos. I was called by the local assistant to the hiring manger to schedule a one on one interview at a Panera Bread. I interviewed with her and she said if I was chosen to advance that I'd still have to interview with her two managers before being selected and then training. I wasn't selected and I had to wait 3 weeks for a generic email saying they went with another candidate.

    Interview Questions

    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Gordon Food Service.

    Interview

    Hiring process lasted more than a month. First there is a video interview with prompted questions that you record answers. This is followed by interviews with the territory manager and then the district manager. The interviews are pretty lengthy (more than an hour) and ask personality type questions- i.e how you would handle certain situations. After 3 interviews, no further contact was made and I was never told thanks but not thanks. This was despite following up and be told "talent" will be in contact.

    They'll talk a lot about how great the company culture is, ignore it. They'll also talk about how great the benefits are, but they really are just decent.

    Software Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Wyoming, MI

    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Gordon Food Service (Wyoming, MI) in September 2013.

    Interview

    Hiring process was initiated by a third-party recruiter. After an initial phone call and a couple of emails with the recruiter, a 30 minute call was scheduled with the hiring manager at GFS. After the phone call, I was invited on-site for an approximately half-day of interviews by the hiring manager, a senior manager, and some senior-level developers who would be my colleagues. This was actually quite nice -- they said they preferred doing one long interview as opposed to multiple short ones out of respect for my time as well as theirs, which I appreciated.

    During the interview process, I got a lot of insight about the company culture, which is really tight-knit for being a company of its size. It was a very positive experience overall.

    On the technical side, however, the questions were kinda low-ball. Lots of simple questions about basic computer science and object-oriented programming concepts, with a couple of high-level practical/architectural questions thrown in. It was an easy slam dunk, which was both a relief and somewhat disappointing at the same time.

    Interview Questions

    • What is the concept in object oriented programming that allows you to create two objects with the same method, but with different implementations.   1 Answer
    • Please describe the following three types of integration, and the advantages and disadvantages of each: file-based integration, database-backed integration, and message-based integration.   1 Answer
