    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 2 days - interviewed at Food Lion.

    Interview Details

    I had one communication as in a phone call by the Assistant Store Manager, for an interview. And went in to talk to the Grocery Dept. Manager he asked some questions but later called me, and forwarded my application/interview to the Front End Dept. Manager who hired me as a Sales Associate.

    Negotiation Details
    Like what kind of wage you would like, but I really said at least min. wage. As some company's make it as a trick question. So if you are sure when they give you an offer that you could probably get a better offer then, fell free to ask for more. But just be careful.

    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 4 days - interviewed at Food Lion in June 2014.

    Interview Details

    I would call the entire process standard. I got a call from a resume I had posted 2 months ago but my interviewer said he had just started looking. After I got the call friday went in on monday for the interview, the interviewer used the companies standardized hiring guide book with typical interview questions. Took about an hour to talk he told me about the store and the position responsibilities. It was very laid back and nice no real pressure. After the interview he had to get the regional meat manager to sign off on me as well as the store manager I did not me either. The day after that we went to the meat department and did a cutting test once again very laid back and relaxed. After that I met with the store manager for a few minutes and was hired on the interviewers recommendation.
