    only had to do 1 interview and waited at least 10 days before getting hired. The first step in the hiring process is, of course, to apply for the job.

    Clerk Interview

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Stop & Shop in May 2014.

    Interview Details

    Applied online, and their system is in dire need of an upgrade. You can't go back to previous pages in the application, not even with your browser's back button. Only once the application is nearly finished can you review it. There is no option to save or continue later, so you'll need to start over if you get interrupted. And before you can begin, you're required to give your SSN. You're then asked broad and vague multiple choice questions that are like a psychological test. I answered as honestly as I could with the available choices.

    I got a call about 2 weeks later to schedule an interview. The first batch of questions were related to my availability, previous experience, and if I was legally allowed to work. The rest were rather outdated questions that never accurately judge someone's abilities. Nothing was mentioned about the company or the positions I applied for, save for how customer service is important.

    While the hiring manager seemed friendly, she didn't take any notes or record my answers. I had some questions, but was only able to ask two of them. Why are these positions open? Is there a number I can call to follow up if need be? Her responses were long-winded, and barely answered my questions. She also implied following up wasn't a good idea, and that I should wait a couple weeks before calling the store. She ended the interview before I could ask anything else. Once I'd left the office and gotten out of sight, I heard her start yelling at an employee who'd come to ask her about something.

    I think their hiring process could use some improvement. It's not terrible, but it's not great, either.

    Anonymous Employee in Old Saybrook, CT
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took a dayinterviewed at Stop & Shop in August 2012.

    Interview Details

    Was called two weeks after filling out online application.
    Interviewing Manager was very nice, friendly and informative.
    I was first asked to tell him about myself which I did. He asked why I chose their store, and why I wanted to be employed there.
    After speaking with me he called in the Cashier Supervisor to meet with me, she was extremely pleasant also.
    I was told they're interviewing many people and making a decision in the next couple of days. I may get called back for a second interview.
    Just have to say both the people I met with were wonderful. I'd love to work with/for them.

    Application Details

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Stop & Shop in November 2010.

    Interview Details

    It can be somewhat difficult, you are better off if you know someone, but you can be one to apply and continuously go back and ask the management to have an interview, the interview was very basic, and I started soon after I got a call from them.

    Restocking Interview

    Anonymous Employee
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 5 daysinterviewed at Stop & Shop.

    Interview Details

    The interview was at 10pm and the manager that was supposed to do the interview was 20 minutes late. It was for a part time job, because they do not hire full time, and during the interview was informed that having another job (even part time) disqualified me from consideration for hiring. Thinking this was a one time problem with just that manager I interviewed at another location with a different manager and exactly the same thing happened right down to the interviewer being late.
