Cash Office Interview

Cash Office
Cleveland, OH

I applied online - interviewed at Giant Eagle in September 2012.

Interview Details – I applied online, was contacted the next morning and had a date set for the interview. I was interview by a corporate employee at the store and then by the front end manager. I was offered the job immediately after. I had to come in for about 2 hrs. three days for preliminary orientation and then received about four days of actual job specific training. I felt the training period was sufficient.

Interview Questions

  • I feel that they should be more willing to consider allowing full time to people. If you get a person who genuinely works hard and cares about their job they should be given a sort of job security.   Answer Question
  • They have recently implemented a new personality type test that screens their applications. These seem to be difficult enough that we are having trouble filling positions. I don't feel this is a profitable innovation.   Answer Question
