    Cashier Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate  in  Feasterville Trevose, PA
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Feasterville Trevose, PA
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks - interviewed at Acme Markets.

    Interview Details

    Firstly I received a call out of nowhere from the store director least when I expected it saying there was a job opening for a Part-time Bagger-Clerk. He scheduled an interview in the morning the next day and it was quite easy . Walked in, he asked two questions. Tell Me about yourself, and would you like this position. That easy, I think I got the job only because I'm a teenager but I also realized they hired a whole bunch of other kids too. I started out at $7.35/hr as a bagger, within a month they promoted me and a few others to cashiers at which point our pay went up $7.85/hr and then after 2 months $8, till my last days there going to $8.25/hr. AN AWESOME PAY FOR A PART TIME TEEN SUMMER JOB! The only hard thing working there was pushing carts, everyone that works there is so nice and considerate to problems. The only issues I have had there were:
    1) In order to get off you HAVE to schedule your off date 4 weeks ahead, which is pretty hard at least for me
    2) The whole union situation, They take a large sum of your first couple of paychecks in return you get that awesome pay I talked about earlier, if they didn't you would probably get the same amount anywho.
    3) Schedules are not online, You have to physically go in and check your schedule every Friday, I know friends that work at Giant that has no union that don't have to do that.

    All in all it's a good part-time summer job, assuming you get lucky and they promote you to cashier as quickly as they did me (within a month!).

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 1+ week - interviewed at Acme Markets in June 2009.

    Interview Details

    The interview process basically told me I had the job. I was a high school student and I applied online. A couple of days later I received a phone call for me to come in. They told me that I had to take a drug test before getting the job. After they spoke about the drug test, they told me the duties I would partake when working at Acme. It was simple bagger work and bottom of the chain work. They told me I would get a call for pre-orientation and then couple days later I was on the schedule.

    Interview Details

    It was a very easy process. I applied online, got a call from the hiring manager (eventually) and came in for the interview. She asked me where I wanted to work in the store, as well as my availability, then gave me a drug test. I filled out a few papers, and was pretty much hired. The manager was very approachable. The interview wasn't very long though. My interview was in the summer, when they hire many people, so it wasn't hard to get a job.
