    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 4 daysinterviewed at Cub Foods (Kenosha, WI).

    Interview

    Very professional interview. Treated as if I were interviewing for a management position. I pretty much knew that I was qualified. Possibly, overqualified. I had been wanting to work there because I had friends there, and that was the main reason for applying. Everyone there was really laid back and easy to talk to. This would be a great company to work with.

    I applied online. The process took 3 daysinterviewed at Cub Foods (Rochester, MN) in December 2013.

    Interview

    2 interviews. Both interviewers were welcoming and friendly. They were also able to find a time for my interview that fit into my busy schedule. Yhe Store Manager, Jeff, posed challenging yet relevant questions to determine if I was the correct person for his team. Also, there was very little time between my second interview and being contacted with a job offer.

    I applied online. The process took a dayinterviewed at Cub Foods (Duluth, MN) in March 2009.

    Interview

    The interview started with an online application. I then had a phone interview and was asked to come in for a formal interview. I discussed my background and why I would like to be employed by Supervalu. I then had to submit all required information for a background check. Once all this came in clear, I then needed to submit to a drug test before starting.

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 1+ weekinterviewed at Cub Foods (Minneapolis, MN) in January 2008.

    Interview

    The interview process for Cub Foods loss prevention begins with an initial interview with at least two of the four LP supervisors. This follows an online application and subsequent submission of your resume either by fax or by email. They will ask a few of your standard interview questions (Tell me about yourself; what is your biggest weakness; etc...), then they will ask a few scenario questions (If XYZ happens, what would you do?). If you don't know from your initial invitation to interview, this would be a good place to ask what your home store will be should you be offered a job.

    The questions are all fairly simple and the people asking them are not trained HR reps; they are just trying to determine if you would be easy to work with and if you'd be a good fit for the job. The scenario questions are very simple and if you have ANY experience with Loss Prevention you will be just fine. If the supervisors like you, you will have a 1:1 interview with the Manager of Cub LP. That's also a very simple interview; just make sure you look nice.

    If all your interviewers like you, you will go through a background check and drug test. My record was clean so I don't know how lenient Cub is on certain things from your past. If you pass both tests, your future supervisor will call you with a job offer.

    Interview Questions

    • What would you do if a store associate approached you and informed you that they just witnessed a customer conceal an expensive item into their coat pocket?   1 Answer

    Negotiation

    Cub Foods is pretty standardized on what your starting pay will be and what your benefits package will be like. Like most businesses in 2009, Cub is cutting costs everywhere so you probably won't get a higher starting wage than the one they offer you. Cub LP was was my entry into LP though, so I had no prior experience to use as a bargaining chip.
