Deli Manager Interview

Deli Manager
Houston, TX

I applied in-person and the process took 5 days - interviewed at H E B in October 2011.

Interview Details – I was an internal so it was your basic group interview with all sorts of store directors, HR managers, etc. Final interview was with the Regional Merchant. The process wasn't too complicated but there are a lot of people applying for the same position.

Interview Question – I don't remember any of the questions being too hard to answer. Learning HEB's acronyms for everything will be a challenge though.   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – They don't really negotiate unless you're an external applicant.

Staff Accountant Interview

Staff Accountant

Interviewed at H E B

Interview Details – As long as you did well in college you will have nothing to fear. As my background is in accounting, the thing that mattered the most is my 4.0. Extra curricular activities are good, but they are just that, extra curricular.
As any accountant should know, social graces and the ability to explain how things work are divine attributes to acquire and display during the hiring process.

Interview Question – How many ping pongs balls would it take to fill a 747?

The purpose of this question was not to "know" the answer, but show how you would figure it out.

CSA Interview

CSA
Waco, TX

I applied through an employee referral and the process took 1 week - interviewed at H E B in May 2012.

Interview Details – After I applied, I got a call the next day asking to come in for a group interview. The group interview includes a little introduction, why you want to work for the company, what makes a good employee, and then you sell an item (which they place in front of you) to the managers. Then, after the interview is done, you will be notified if you made it to the one-on-one interview with the Operations manager. She will just ask basic questions and if you volunteer, what are three reasons to miss work?

Interview Question – What are 3 reasons to miss work?   View Answer

Negotiation Details – She asked how much I wanted to get paid, and i just said the minimum.

School of Retail Leadership Interview

School of Retail Leadership

I applied through college or university and the process took a day - interviewed at H E B in April 2014.

Interview Details – Interview was completed at a hiring event at University of Houston. The interviewer had no personality and asked the most generic questions off of a list. While listening to my answers, she scribbled (yes, SCRIBBLED) on random places on her question book. I understand that they were interviewing several people that day, but I put forth my best effort to be there and I feel I received sub-par experience from their part.

Interview Question – The questions were the exact same questions you would fill out on an online application. Little to no personal interaction with the interviewee.   Answer Question

Reason for Declining – The interview was a mandatory assignment for my class and I had no real interest in the position. Other interviewees, who were actually interested, were ask the same exact questions.
