    I interviewed online. The process took 3 days - interviewed at A&P in February 2014.

    Interview Details

    Honestly, the interview was not hard at all!
    The interviewer knew they were going to give me that job before they began interviewing me.
    They just basically broke down the job and how much I would get paid and told me to come back for orientation.
    I mean, it's just a supermarket. It's not earth science, I'm pretty sure you'll get it.

    Application Details

    I interviewed online - interviewed at A&P in February 2012.

    Interview Details

    Had to wait one hour for my interview because the interviewer was in a meeting. Interview lasted less than five minutes, with interviewer talking on the phone through most of the interview. Had to pass a drug screen. Waited forever to hear from company about the start date, because person responsible for telling me had a few days off. Went to work the first day only to find out that I was getting a different job than the one I applied for. Same thing happened to the guy who interviewed immediately after me.

    Human Resources Coordinator/Recruiter Interview

    Anonymous Employee
    Anonymous Employee
    Application Details

    I interviewed online. The process took 2 weeks - interviewed at A&P in October 2013.

    Interview Details

    I applied through and Ad on Craigslist. I got a call about two weeks later asking me what my salary requirements were. Then was hung up on. A hour later was called in for an interview.
    The interview process was fairly easy. The initial screener seemed distracted but he eventually opened up and we had a great conversation. Then I met with the VP of Human Resources, he was very receptive of me. Then I met with the rest of the HR team. They constantly asked me what my passion was. They were very nice in explaining why they needed me and what they would like to do in the future. This left me feeling great about the interview. I week later, I received an email letting me know that the "Function has collapsed into another function".

    Really? Waste of time.
