    Interview Details

    I applied for my position via telephone system. I received a phone call about two days later. I interviewed not long after that. I was really impressed with the woman who hired me and I enjoyed my experience at Giant Eagle for the first couple of years but things have gone down hill since then.

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

    After submitting my application I was called in for a group interview where me and about ten others interviewed for multiple positions. We were given a brief company overview, asked customer service questions, acted out a related skit, played guess the food item and creatively drew/glued/sculpted art for the departmental job that we wanted. The interviews were held by the (at the time co-assistant store manager and the team lead for the demo kitchen.

    Negotiation Details
    No negotiation, but that was more my lack of knowledge on the matter. I later found out that a former coworker had negotiated a higher rate due to their education credentials.

    Cash Office Interview

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

    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

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 1 week - interviewed at Giant Eagle.

    Interview Details

    Applied online, received a phone call and email a week later to set up interview time. Met with recruiter in store, basic interview questions. Interviewer was very distant and unpleasant and seemed like she didn't even want me there. Next had interview with store manager, who acted even ruder than the recruiter. He literally took out his cell phone in the middle of my interview; very unprofessional and rude.

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 4 days - interviewed at Giant Eagle in March 2013.

    Interview Details

    Total waste of time. Group interview with 5 other people, have no time to introduce self or talk about past. They make other people introduce you. They ask you to "inventory" candy, which is totally a joke. And then they ask "what would you do if" questions. I thought I did everything great and my personality came through as much as it COULD. and they emailed me next day saying they had gone with someone else. The interview was with recruiters I would never work with and not even at the store i had applied to. awful judge of character. the store manager of where the interview was spent the entire time texting.
