    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at A&P (Mahwah, NJ) in January 2015.

    Interview

    Brief, lacking informative content and incomplete. Interviewer was well versed in deflecting and referring decisions as being made "in Montvale". Among the worst interviews I've ever experienced. No value for time except that the interviewer had "other things to do". Had I not spoken with several employees prior to the interview I might have looked elsewhere.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at A&P in October 2013.

    Interview

    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.
