I was then contacted via email by a recruiter for another position with the company. I came in again and we went over the job description and how I'd fit into the role. I sent a follow up email to HR and never heard back from them again.

    Interview

    I had a phone interview and they never had the courtesy to update me or respond to my emails. Granted I might not have been their first choice but at least reply to emails and tell a candidate if he's been chosen or not

    Project Manager Interview

    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at US Foods (Rosemont, IL) in June 2017.

    Interview

    Horrible. Passed the HR phone screen, and then one week later I was contacted for a second phone interview with three Senior managers. I was told to use Skype but their company business Skype was blocked by the firewall. Wasted the time testing it out.

    During the phone interview, I felt interrogated and was accused of being book smart. The interviewers were unprofessional and challenging the applicant's experience. This is a rare encounter to me as most employers will not want to represent the company badly.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at US Foods (Charlotte, NC) in June 2017.

    Interview

    It took a minute to get a call back but once I was called everything else happened pretty quickly. I was called and asked if I could attend an interview the next day. Once there I waited with 4 other people while HR got themselves together which took longer than expected. We were taken into a room and given a few papers and some basic information about the company and the job. We were told we would be job shadowing that day but that did not happen. After talking with HR we were taken back one by one by the interviewer. Definitely wasn't a typical interview and I have a feeling they were just going through the motions and were already planning to hire us lol. I wasn't really asked much. Since I was the last one interviewed I didn't leave until around 7 or 8pm, I arrived at 4pm. I would suggest that HR and the interviewer communicate because the process HR described to us was different from what actually happened.
