    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at Big Y Foods.

    Interview Details

    once I put in my application, (which took almost an hour and a half to complete) I got called within a week to set up an interview. the dress code for the interview was business professional. lasted about 25 mins. was told to take a drug test within the next 24 hours. only sketchy part was that I was told I was hired at as part-time cashier (which means no less than 18 hours per week and no more than 30) and that's exactly what I was looking for, BUT after two months my hours started to drop. when I brought the subject up to my managers and Employee Services Rep, they stated that I was hired as Casual, not Part-time. which means 25 or less. yet I remember specifically accepting the job offer because they promised to give me 25+ hours a week.

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 4 weeksinterviewed at Big Y Foods in July 2010.

    Interview Details

    The online questionnaire is by far the most intense part of the interview process. However there is no way around it. After you have filled that out and been called in for a face to face, its pretty smooth sailing from there

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Application Details

    I applied in-person. The process took a dayinterviewed at Big Y Foods in February 2011.

    Interview Details

    It was a standard interview in which they asked specific questions to determine what type of employee a person might be and how they would react in specific situations. It was a fair process but I walked away with the feeling that they didn't take the opportunity to see what I really had to offer for their company.

    Interview Questions
