    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at Food City (Piney Flats, TN) in October 2014.

    Interview

    I was called in and told to come to the store for the interview. I had to go to the customer service desk to have somebody figure out who was supposed to be interviewing me and nobody knew immediately. It was eventually figured out and the review was underway, but the interviewer was clearly quite preoccupied with something else before I came in. I was then taken to a nearly empty room, one that I think is supposed to be used as a conference room, and told to wait a few minutes. Two people took me into a manager's office and the review was started. I answered some questions and was told that I would be contacted for further interviewing at least a week from the day of my first interview.

    Interview Questions

    • Can you work with people of a variety of ages?
      Physical ability?
      Have you ever had to solve a problem working with others?

      Basic review questions like that.

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took a dayinterviewed at Food City (Berlin, MD).

    Interview

    I met with the assistant store manager after inquiring about a help wanted sign at the customer service desk and completing a simple paper application in the store. The interview lasted about 10 minutes, and though I had never worked in retail or the food service industry before, it was clear that this didn't matter & I was hired on the spot.
    I then filled out some paperwork & was introduced to my immediate supervisor in the deli-bakery dept. After reviewing the uniform requirements and my schedule, the hiring process was concluded & I became an employee of Food City.

    Interview Questions

    Negotiation

    Be sure to clarify what your job functions will be, and what jobs you are not willing to accept. I was given the impression that I would work in the bakery. In reality there were no openings in the bakery, and I was assigned to work the deli section.

    Interview

    Strange interview. Wasn't asked much about the job itself, just about my past life experience. When the manager found out I had been abroad, we talked about that (very casually I might add) for around 30 minutes, and then he shook my hand and a day or so later I was called with a job offer.
