    Deli/Bakery Associate Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Berlin, MD
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Berlin, MD
    Application Details

    I applied in-person. The process took a dayinterviewed at Food City.

    Interview Details

    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 Details
    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.

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Food City in May 2011.

    Interview Details

    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.
