    The process took 4 daysinterviewed at Food Lion (Raleigh, NC).

    Interview

    Computers screen applications, then the recruiter had to reach out, and interview you. Once this happened, I was to meet a panel of "leadership" personnel a few days later. I did. First off, they had to fumble through other apps to find mine. Then, they didn't even know I was downsized from previous employer. (Not fired, and undisclosed to recruiter. THEN, my employer was "employer A" before my most recent, and they said "oh, so you also worked at "employer B?"..... I said "no...... Employer A". No real interviewing at all. I've been an SM before, and my most recent position was a high profile position for well known company. I have over 11 years of leadership and Six Sigma training..... They offer me an entry level shift supervisor position?. That's not even a respectable offer , hats a PUNCH in the face and a kick out the store while laughing!

    It was quick and easy. I met with the manager, he asked the basic "tell me about yourself," "what kind of qualities will you bring to this store?" etc. I was hired on the spot and started working that day.

    Interview

    I submitted my application and within a few days I had been called in for an interview. The interview was short and to the point, asking all of the basics. Nothing too nerve wracking. They are usually pretty quick to call. After my interview I received an offer about four days later. It was a very quick process.

Only thing I'm waiting in now is a call back from the store manager because she told me that she will most definitely call me back. Asked for my consent to do my background check and asked if I had two valid forms of nc id. My social security card and identification card

    Various at different stores if you are looking to work on the store level. I have had the pleasure of doing 2 corporate interviews. I did not get any of these. They email you after you apply if you did not get through the first round. if you do make it through the first round an HR rep will call you and set up a time to do either a phone interview or face to face.

    Interview

    interviewer acted like she could care less about talking to me, she asked questions and read a review to me from a script, but was fumbling around and not paying attention when I answered questions. didn't engage much in conversation and acted like she knew I was not going to get the job and didn't want to waste time talking to me.
