Deli Clerk Interview

Deli Clerk
Vacaville, CA

I applied in-person and the process took 4 weeks - interviewed at Raley's.

Interview Details – I walked in and was greeted warmly by a cashier. I asked her if they were hiring and she told me that she would give my resume directly to the boss. I went back in a week later and had an on the spot interview with the manager and she she that she was interviewing a few more people for the position and she would get back to me. She called me a week later and told me I was hired and we will proceed with background check and call me in a week when she gets the results

Interview Question – Why do you want to work at Raley's   Answer Question

Reason for Declining – I actually accepted the job and worked through orientation but quit after my first day because I accepted another offer at another job and wanted to hold both positions but Raley's does not want their employees to have second jobs so I decided to go with the position that paid more
