    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 5 daysinterviewed at Fresh and Easy (Danville, CA) in February 2015.

    Interview

    I've never worked retail before and only had one interview being a caregiver so I didn't know what to expect. The whole process was really easy. I walked in and spoke to the manager, handing her my resume. She asked me a few questions and gave me an interview on the spot. The interview lasted about 15 minutes. The questions are very basic, what do you do in such situations, why do you want to work here, etc. All i had to do was pass the drug test and I was hired.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a weekinterviewed at Fresh and Easy in February 2015.

    Interview

    I applied online and was contacted within a week by the store manager at the store where I had applied. The interview was with the same store manager and two other managers/supervisors from another store. Despite the fact there were three interviewers, something I hadn't expected, which felt very daunting at first; the interview was very pleasant. All three interviewers were very personable and friendly. The quesions seemed to flow into conversation rather than just them asking me questions, me answering and then moving onto another. The interview lasted approximately 20 minutes.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ monthsinterviewed at Fresh and Easy (Santa Barbara, CA).

    Interview

    simple short fast, They used a cheat sheet or standardized question form that all new hires receive, more questions asked for a simple position and would suit a store manager but it felt robotic and unrehearsed or "canned"

    Interview Questions

    • do you like constant change ?   1 Answer

    Negotiation

    Their way or highway, pay rate "Set in stone" There is no room for negotiating better hours especially working a graveyard shift, It can be a circus. I tried for additional pay and was promised more after a year but when the year came around the promised raise never did

    Interview

    Received phone call after waiting six months, was eventually brought in for two separate interviews which were very basic, asking general questions that are typical of retail to get a picture of your personality type. Second interview describes pay and benefits, then you are brought on as your hired position within the next week.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter – interviewed at Fresh and Easy (El Segundo, CA) in July 2014.

    Interview

    Started with phone interview and several calls with recruiter. Moved on to a 1 on 1 interview with 1 top leader in the company. 2nd 1 on 1 was with another top leader from another facet of the business. Final interview was with VP of HR. Overall an above average experience with plenty of challenging questions. I was given many opportunities to ask questions as well which I happily obliged. Process took about 1 month and then 3 more weeks before I left my previous employer which was important to walk away on good terms. F & E did not pressure me to give short notice and totally understood how important it was for me to give as much notice as needed with my previous employer.

    I applied in-person. The process took a weekinterviewed at Fresh and Easy (San Francisco, CA) in May 2014.

    Interview

    I applied online and then came into the store for a recruitment event. Sat down with the store manager with my resume, he had me fill out an application and asked typical interview questions: What would I do in this sort of situation, Why would I be an asset to the company, special skills, etc. They were really short staffed at the time so I got hired right away. Received emails within a few days with more forms and drug screen instructions, then started training and working.

    Negotiation

    They did not talk about pay at all. I had to inquire about it after receiving my first two paychecks which showed different numbers. Was paid minimum ($10.74 in SF) during training and then $12 after the first paycheck.
