C&S Wholesale Grocers History

Israel Cohen and and Abraham Siegel founded C&S Wholesale Grocers in Worcester, Massachusetts in 1918. Three years later Cohen bought out Siegel’s share of the business.

C&S distinguished itself from its numerous competitors by increasing the speed of delivery through efficient warehouse procedures and putting the needs of customers as a first priority.

After WWII, Israel’s son Lester returned home from the war and began to sell to military commissaries.

In 1955 Lester became CEO of C&S.  For the next twenty years Lester grew the company, focusing on wholesale and by 1974 annual sales had reached $14 million.

In 1993 annual sales reached $1 billion.

By 2003 C&S was the third-largest wholesaler in the United States and the largest in New England.

Today C&S delivers over 100,000 food and non-food items to 3,900 independent supermarkets, regional and national chains, and military bases from 50 distribution centers. Its customers include Safeway, Target, A&P, Stop & Shop, and Foodtown.

C&S has 17,000 employees and had $20.40 billion in revenue in 2011.

HI my name is Jamarian and I am writing a complaint against William Roebuck in Orlando office. I was called in to interview with the company which I was well qualified for. I went through the 2 step interview process with Sara (HR manager) and A.J. (new hire manager) which were very professional through the whole process. They thought I was a great fit for what they were looking for and gave me a tour of working environment to see what the job requirements were. I was even told based on my resume I had the potential for growth in the company. The last part of my interview was with Mr, William Roebuck. He started the interview with the question why I chose C & S. I responded because I seen that the company was around for a long time and I see the potential for growth. He then asked me where did I live. I responded that I stayed ten minutes away from Job. He than stated that that was my first mistake. I replied why do you say that? He stated that they have been in my area for over 14 years, so I should have been applied for them. He went on to belittle me through the entire interview instead looking at my qualifications like the previous people who interviewed me. He said my experience was not equivalent to what they do. I showed him on my resume and explained to him as well that I have worked in a physically demanded environment on my last warehouse job. I let him know that I was not afraid of hard work and I was definitely not a quitter. He looked at a job I had 10 yrs ago in a office setting and said anyone can answer phones but everyone cant do this job. I showed him again the my most recent experience was warehouse and not office worked, but he continued to over look that. This was by far one of the worst interviews I have ever experienced. I don’t think that people like Mr. William Roebuck she be in a management position. He is very negative and not a good representation of this company. I hope this reaches the right hands because this company may lose valuable employees because one bad person. My experience with everyone was great until I met him.
