    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 days. I interviewed at Gordon Food Service (Palatine, IL) in November 2015.

    Interview

    It was a 3 day process after I applied online. There were two short, easy interviews with managers. They were very laid back and kind. The more upbeat you are in the interviews, the higher your starting pay will be. They are looking for friendliness more than anything, including experience.

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Gordon Food Service.

    Interview

    The first interview is with the Store Manager my interview went well and I did my second interview the same day with the Assistant Manager. The interview process was around half and hour for each interview. They did take a hair sample for a drug screening. You do have to watch a lot of cheesy workplace videos and fill out some information during those videos. They will take you on a tour of the store. You have to sign off on a lot of training papers, the training takes a while but is well worth it.

    Interview

    I was called in after applying two weeks prior. The manager looked at my application submitted online which had been printed out. I was offered 45 cents over minimum wage. After minimum wage was raised to 8.50 months later I was told I would be receiving 8.50. Raises based on certifications were not applied or even discussed.

    • No questions were difficult. They give you a hair test for some reason, considering its minimum wage I don't see why.   Answer Question
