    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Giant Eagle.

    Interview

    Applied on line and after a couple of weeks got an email for a phone interview. I prepared well for the phone interview but felt it was very generic matter of fact not at all personal. I was told that the only jobs they had were part time and was asked to pick between 2 different departments. The in person interview was with prepared foods and a really great experience. I was asked a couple of days later to go in for orientation.

    Interview Questions

    • I was given different scenarios of situations that had or could happen in the store and asked what I would do, mostly normal customer service questions. I was asked about a time that I went over and above for a customer, and how I would handle a difficult customer.   Answer Question

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ months. I interviewed at Giant Eagle.

    Interview

    The interview process starts from a screening interview. You then have an onsite interview with 2 store leaders. Two separate, formal 30 minute interviews. Be prepared to talk about your past experiences. If you do well you'll have a final interview with the regional business leader. View that final interview as an opportunity to ask plenty of questions and learn a lot.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at Giant Eagle in February 2015.

    Interview

    Received a phone call from hiring recruiter. She asked me some basic questions. From that point on its about a week process to get started. Also for a special position like meat cutter or cake decorator you have to take a skills test so they make sure you know what your doing.

    Interview Questions

    • Name a time you did something wrong. How did you correct it. What was the outcome   1 Answer

    Negotiation

    You can negotiate wage for some jobs. For meat cutters....NEGOTIATE! Ask for at least 14.50 to 15. I made a mistake not asking for more. Now that I'm hired in I found out how slow the raises are so I'm kicking myself in the teeth.

    Programmer Analyst Interview

    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a staffing agency. I interviewed at Giant Eagle (Pittsburgh, PA) in February 2015.

    Interview

    I had a 2 on 1 interview with a hiring manager and a senior software engineer in the same group as the position. Very standard Information Technology job interview questions. The place was a little disorganized--we had the interview in the office of a manager who was out that day as the hiring manager could not (or did not) book a conference room in advance. Also the group seemed to have a lot of turnover from some of the comments the manager made. The manager even admitted the role I was applying for "wasn't the greatest job ever." That was a first for me on an interview! Afterwards I wrote a thank you note and was given feedback that I "interviewed well" and was "in the running," and then never received any more feedback. Not even a rejection letter. Poor form, Giant Eagle.

    Interview

    I applied online and was contacted the next day for an over the phone interview that I was able to schedule. The woman who called didn't reply much but did come across as very nice and understanding that I was nervous. The questions however seemed negative and just tried to figure out things I did wrong instead of right. Such as my biggest obstacle? However, it was a pleasant phone call. I did get offered the 2nd interview. Wish me luck!

    Grocery Clerk Part Time Interview

    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Giant Eagle (Washington, PA) in January 2015.

    Interview

    I was led into an office with a manager. He went over my basic information and then asked multiple questions about my work background and some theoretical questions. After that he just began venting about how bad the job was and how women "wouldn't stay in this position". Also how the night crew isn't doing their job. Honestly he was very unprofessional and these are not things that should be said to someone during an interview. It almost scared me away from taking the job. After listening to him vent for about half an hour, trying to pretend to be interested for the sake of getting the job, he finally ended the interview and he said i would be called to set up orientation.
