    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took a weekinterviewed at Food Lion.

    Interview Details

    I had been applying online for a few weeks, at different stores, and for several different positions. I had just finished filling out an application online and received a phone call about coming in for an interview. I went in for the interview and was interviewed by the assistant store manager and the customer service manager. They both were very nice and easy to talk to. I did not feel nervous at all with them. I was asked about my education and past job experiences. I was also asked to explain any gaps in employment. The questions were very straight forward. I was asked to tell about myself and what I like to do in my spare time, where I see myself in 5 years, if I felt like I could make Food Lion a career, tell about a time when I went above and beyond to make the customer happy, tell about a time that I handled a difficult/irate customer. No interview question was out of the ordinary. I was told that I would train on the cash register for about 4 weeks and then be moved into the office (I've been there for a while now and I am still a cashier), I was also told that I would be guaranteed 30 hours a week (I've never worked anymore than 13 - 18 hours a week with about 15 being the average)

    Interview Questions
    Negotiation Details
    On my online application I put down that the minimum I would work for was $8.00. When I received the phone call offering me the job I was told that I was going to make $8.00, but when I went in to fill out my new hire forms I was given a base pay of $8.25.

    Interview Details

    I kept calling and calling. Finally when called in for interview, the process went very smoothly. The supervisor was very friendly and asked all the appropriate questions. I ended up taking the job offer and giving my years of experience able to start off a little more than most employees that come on board.
