    Courtsey Clerk Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Arcadia, CA
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. I interviewed at Albertsons (Arcadia, CA) in May 2015.

    Interview

    Very simple. Told her I had an application in the system and she set up an interview. The actual interview, however, was just explaining to me what would be expected of me on the job. I wasn't asked about qualifications or anything. I think she was trying to get a feel for me as a person through the explanations of stuff and little anecdotes I interjected to make myself seem more qualified, haha. PROTIP: IF YOU JUST APPLY ONLINE AND WAIT, YOU WILL NOT GET THE JOB. YOU MUST EITHER KNOW SOMEONE ON THE INSIDE OR, AFTER APPLYING, TALK TO ONE OF THE MANAGERS IN THE STORE AND ASK FOR AN INTERVIEW. REPEATEDLY IF NECESSARY.

    Courtesy Clerk Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Livingston, MT
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 5 days. I interviewed at Albertsons (Livingston, MT) in March 2015.

    Interview

    In the office of the boss of the store with the front end manager. Lasted about twenty minutes at most. When you go in, make sure you dress professionally, best to have black dress pants and shows, because that will be your uniform. Skate and street shoes will not cut it and they will notice and look to you as someone who doesn't care for the job.

    Interview Questions

    • They asked, and likely will for others: A) Why Albertsons? B) What do you like to do in your spare time? C) Where do you see yourself in ten years? Very generic questions and some more personal to get to know you as a person and not simply a person for hire.   1 Answer

    Not much to the process. It consisted of the standard questions. Focus on one's strengths and attributes. Relationship building is the key. Discussed previous work experience, expectations and how one would help grow the business.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Albertsons.

    Interview

    Pretty simple. Applied online and within a week, you receive an email from the recruiter interested in setting up a phone interview. No in-person interview was mentioned as part of the process after the phone interview. Recruiter will ask questions you'd expect to be asked. They are basic and you should have the answers to them. Few behavioral questions.

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took a week. I interviewed at Albertsons.

    Interview

    Easy really for this position all they ask you are the basic questions as to how you will contribute to the store and what inspires you to do your best. The one thing they do look for though is when you will be available for work if you have school.

    What time i would be able to go in after school.
