    Reasons for Declining

    There was a distinct disconnect between the hiring manager and the HR Team. While the HR Team indicated that they were an employer of choice, especially when it come to home-work life balance I assumed that meant, that if I needed to work from home occasionally I could, or it I had an appt to get to it would be nor problem, as long as my work was being done. The Hiring Manager felt as if this job would require 50-60 hours a week at the office. I have no problem putting the hours in, I do currently, but some of that is done in my home office, so that i can have dinner with my family. When I brought this comment up to the HR director, she promptly indicated that's why they hadn't been able to hire anyone for the position, but she assured me that wasn't the case, I would have full support to WFH when needed, and they even had cube share (wasn't asking for that, but it was great to know that they supported it.) In the end I felt as if I didn't want to be the one that paved the way with this particular director, and decided it wasn't a good opportunity for me at the time.

    Bakery Grocery Clerk PT Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Solon, OH
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Solon, OH
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took a dayinterviewed at Giant Eagle in October 2013.

    Interview Details

    I applied online and the recruiter called me the following day. They asked me if I was currently employed or unemployed. There were questions regarding the application such as “Why do you want to work in the bakery?” “What hours of the week are you available?” “Why do you want to work at Giant Eagle?” They told me that starting pay will be minimum wage. They asked to tell them about my last employment. I was also asked if I could lift, carry, or move 50 pounds. Then I was scheduled for an interview.
    I interviewed with the hiring recruiter and I was asked to fill out an availability form. She went over my job application and asked two questions. We talked about college major and how it relates to Giant Eagle. Then she went to the bakery manager to check if my hours of availability would fit them. She came back and asked if I had any questions.
    I was offered the job on the spot. And soon I will have an orientation scheduled.
