Assistant Front End Manager Interview

Assistant Front End Manager

I applied online and the process took 4+ weeks - interviewed at Fry's Food.

Interview Details – applied online and contacted by the district recruiter a few days later. Brought in for a panel interview. Typical questions for the most part. Left and was told I would be contacted with in two weeks, but got a phone call about 7 days later saying I got the job. They ran a background check on me and then I went in for a drug test.
Two things to note...I had to call the district recruiter to check on my background check as he didn't get back to me right after he received the results. Also, they may bring you in at a lesser position than what you are qualified for and for a lot less money as well. The DR hired me for this position knowing full well that I was over qualified for it. Also, instead of being offered a full time position with benefits< I was given a part-time position without benefits and was promised a 40 hour a week work schedule. This is a company that doesn't like to hire management externally, so I was promised a quick rise to where I should be and something just to get my foot in the door. Time will tell whether or not that promise is kept.

Interview Question – Do you consider yourself to be black or white when dealing with employees and customers?
The whole point of this question is that they believe in bending the rules for the customers, but being strict about them with the employees.
  Answer Question

Negotiation Details – no negotiation...salary requirements were discussed during the interview, but is still $10G+ less than what I was previously making. Meaning..they pay you what they pay you.

GM Clerk Interview

GM Clerk

I applied through an employee referral and the process took 1 week - interviewed at Fry's Food.

Interview Details – Basically the interview/hiring process takes about 1-2 weeks to complete. You get 1 or 2 face to face interview(s) with assistant and/or store manager. They will ask you basic questions about your background, previous jobs, etc. Although I HATED working for this company, I will say that the interviews they conduct are extremely easy and comfortable.

Interview Question – Why do you want to work for this specific company? It was not a difficult question, just kind of unexpected seeing as most people don't WANT to work in retail or take the job to get a source of income.   Answer Question

Interview Details – Manager positions are often not posted as open so the promotion process is fairly closed door. This is frustrating and not motivating to most managers.
