Produce Clerk Interview

Produce Clerk
Lewisville, TX

I applied online and the process took 5 days - interviewed at Albertsons in December 2012.

Interview Details – I was excited to be called in for an interview. I had been searching for months and was about to lose hope that I would ever find a job. When I went in for my interview, I went up to customer service and was taken to the room where the interviews take place. I waited about five minutes for my interviewer to arrive. I was asked questions about why I was in need of a job, how I felt working with the public and if I was able to work on holidays. After I had satisfied my interviewer I was told that I would be getting the job as long as I passed the background test and drug test.

Interview Question – I was asked how I would deal with an angry or upset customer.   Answer Question
