Interview Details

Came in for interview after call, sat down in the customer service office and a woman brought me the employment forms, and asked when I could start. Must have been the easiest job I ever got.

    I applied online - interviewed at Food Lion.

    Interview Details

    There was only one interview. Even though this was for a cashier position they used those annoying "interview" discussions like, "Describe a difficult work situation and how you overcame it."

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took a day - interviewed at Food Lion in January 2014.

    Interview Details

    I applied online, as that is the only way to do so. They always keep the store at max staff, so it is very hard to get in. However, someone quits every few days, so you just need to call in on the right day and they will ask you to come in for an interview. It is decided that you will get hired before you even get to the store.

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took a day - interviewed at Food Lion in February 2011.

    Interview Details

    I got a call a day after I applied. They were a bit unorganized; the manager of the store didn't know the customer service manager was there, so he sent me away, luckily I went to the store next door and walked back through, so when he saw me again, he told me he was wrong and sent me to get interviewed. He pretty much told me that it was a place for people to get experience.

    Interview Questions
    • I don't really remember what he asked me, I just remember him asking if I had any experience with customer service   View Answer

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks - interviewed at Food Lion in January 2014.

    Interview Details

    Interview process is easy, the hiring manager is nice during the interview but he/she seems to play favorites in the end. I went in for an interview in Jan. it took them 3 weeks to get me on the schedule for training it seemed that they didn't have enough hours to go around. After finally being able to train which was suppose to be 20 hours of training, I only got about 5 hours all together. Other then that the hiring process is easy, all you have to do is fill out an online application and hope they call you in for an interview.

    Interview Questions
    Negotiation Details
    The pay was negotiated from $7.25 up to $7.75 per hour, I would have liked to have seen at least $8.00 per hour with my qualifications but that wasn't the offer.
