    Warehouse Selector Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Jessup, MD
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Jessup, MD
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 2+ weeksinterviewed at Giant Food in September 2014.

    Interview Details

    Applied online, next day received call for group interview/tour/drug test. The drug test is done on the same day as your interview its a swab of your mouth. Then the hr manager interviews you one on one. You then get scheduled for the pallet Jack class at another location. You have to take a written test but the instructor does it during the class so it's not really a "test" answers are shared amongst everyone. Then the instructor lets you practice on the pallet Jack. He is looking for safety not so much technique. If you pass that then you have to take a physical at Patient First then a lift test up the street from PT. I failed the lift test. I couldn't lift 50lbs above my head. They put weights in a wooden box. Had it just been a 50lb dumbbell I would have passed but no...you have to lift up to 100lbs 4x each. First 20, 50, 100. You pass then you're hired! You fail..well you know.

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Giant Food.

    Interview Details

    Everything you would expect at an interview. I applied for the one in Maryland but got accepted by the one at DC. She asked simple questions about me and how you would answer employees ect. Also once I told her I had a website, she asked to me explain the last post I made. This was so she can see how well I would be able to explain something to a customer. Said I would get a call by 5 that same day to let me know if I got it, but if she didn't then, then I was to call her. I called and said I should in Monday to sign papers. Pretty easy

    I filled out the application on live and was contacted within two weeks. For the interview I showed up in business casual (hiring manager appreciated it) and was told basic information about Giant (union company, be open to filling positions of need at time of need, etc…). Filled out some paperwork and was told to call in a couple of days for my schedule (they wanted to make sure I was completely in the system before I started working).
