Cashier Interview

Cashier

Interviewed at Giant Food Stores

Interview Details – I had a very non-traditional hiring process. After submitting my application online I would pop into the store about once a week to inquire about the status of my application. After a month of this one of the supervisors approached the ASM and pretty much told him to hire me. We went into his office, he asked me briefly about my prior work experience and then hired me.

Interview Question – There were no questions asked besides my availability.   Answer Question
