    Truck Driver Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Application Details

    I interviewed online. The process took 2 weeks - interviewed at United Natural in July 2012.

    Interview Details

    I interviewed with 2 people, both of whom were gone within a year of my hire. They called me several times before doing an in-person interview. The interview itself was fairly straightforward. They did over-promise a lot, however. Their were no extra Smith System training certifications and once hired, the promised work-life balance was out the window.

    Interview Questions
    • Why do you want to work here? Difficult because I was making several dollars more an hour with the job I had already when I interviewed.   View Answer
    Negotiation Details
    There was no negotiation. They also insisted I not give two weeks notice. I did anyway and still got the job.

    Second Shift Warehouse Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate  in  Greenwood, IN
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Greenwood, IN
    Application Details

    I interviewed online. The process took 2 months - interviewed at United Natural in June 2012.

    Interview Details

    I was given a phone screen by the HR manager at the time and she then passed me on to a phone call with the GM. That call was short as I was asked to come in for a face to face with him as well as the First Shift Warehouse Manager in a separate meet. Most of the interview questions were behavioral based questions which are answered easily if you have the past experience.

    Interview Questions
    • I was asked if I had and hands on budgeting experience, which I did not. I had accountability for a department but not necessarily the line item of the budget. Here I would be paying for my supervisor salaries as well as the hourly wages and overtime. I would also be purchasing all clothing for the freezer personnel.   Answer Question
    Negotiation Details
    I was able to negotiate vacation time with my offer. I also was given relocation and 3 months hotel stay while searching for a house.

    Warehouse Associate Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Rocklin, CA
    Application Details

    I interviewed online. The process took 2 months - interviewed at United Natural in February 2010.

    Interview Details

    Interview process was quick and easy, received job offer right away, but it took almost 2 months to start as they were waiting on my background check. It finally came through clear, but the screening process from offer to start was ridiculous.

    Negotiation Details
    No negotiation, they offer the same base salary everyone gets regardless of experience. You take it or you decline, but they refuse to increase.

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Application Details

    I interviewed through a staffing agency. The process took a day - interviewed at United Natural in February 2011.

    Interview Details

    I was originally contacted for the position via a IT Contractor. They had me go to the interview and it was a rewarding process. I met with 2 managers and the IT Helpdesk Supervisor. They asked me to describe my background, skills (which included a typing test), tested my knowledge and asked me what I was looking for in a company and the position I was applying for.

    Interview Questions
    • Dealing with senior staff, how am I at it, can I maintain a professional demeanor on the phone with them even if I am frustrated by their call?   Answer Question
    Negotiation Details
    No because I went through a contractor. My advice is to be reasonable especially with the job market the way it is. If you can take less but the benefits are good, do so (remember you can get raises in time).
