All of the employees in the store looked unhappy about being there. The cashier who checked me out after my interview actually told me that she hates her job.

Market District Strongsville Job Fair From Hell- Customer Service Interview

Market District Strongsville Job Fair From Hell- Customer Service
Strongsville, OH

I applied online - interviewed at Giant Eagle in July 2014.

Interview Details – So I along with 1500+ other people attended the market district job fair for the new location in Strongsville, Ohio. The set up was nice at first where they interviewed us in groups and they had food for us and goody bags. The interview included role playing and they based whether they saw us fit for the company. It was fun but very tiring. This lasted for an hour and a half. We then wasted time by talking to Department managers about availability We were given availability sheets to fill out but then they reviewed them and then told us that they were looking for open availability which could have been clearly communicated before hand. After wasting more time with that, we as a group waited for 45 more minutes just to be told that they only had part-time and get this: they were only paying minimum wage $7.45! I have another job and felt that my complete Saturday was wasted for 5 hours when we were told that they only needed 2 hours from us. I took the position only because I was leaving with something after being there for so long but I doubt that I go to orientation because 7.45 is just gas to get out there. Then to have to pay union dues. Giant Eagle/ Market district is a joke, just hire a bunch of kids in High school for that pay. Intentions were good but communication was terrible.

Interview Question – We role played and questions included what to do when a customer is upset, how to sell and product and what would you do type of questions.   Answer Question
