Cashier Interview

Cashier

I applied online and the process took 2 months - interviewed at Giant Food Stores.

Interview Details – It took about a month or so until I received a phone call to set up an interview. I called multiple times and was consistently told they were not hiring but once they started hiring they called me. Interview was informal and easy. It was laid back. Questions were all very easy to answer. It was less then a week after interview when I was offered job as a cashier.

Deli Associate Interview

Deli Associate

I applied online and the process took a day - interviewed at Giant Food Stores.

Interview Details – Called maybe a month after applying. Asked if I would be interested in a position other than what I had applied for. Guy who interviewed me was really nice; very professional. Unfortunately the rest of the management I interacted with was the complete opposite. Otherwise, it was a run of the mill interview nothing unexpected. They were looking for people with a lot of Customer Service background. If you are looking at this for a first job it might be difficult to get the interview.

Interview Question – Regarding being a new hire , I was given absolutely no on the job training at all. Co-workers took time to show me a few things. I appreciated it because they didn't have to. Without that I would have been completely lost. No official training; extreme turnover rate for this position as far as I could gather.   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – Slightly over minimum wage. Can't remember I think it was $8-9

I applied online and the process took a day - interviewed at Giant Food Stores in August 2013.

Interview Details – Received phone call about the interview shortly after applying online. Went to the location and interviewed with Juan, the store manager, and Jim, the Relief Manager. They asked me a series of questions pertaining to what I currently do and how I would handle certain situations.

Interview Question – It had to pertain to a sexual harassment situation. I missed two of the five steps. I went into work later that day and researched the steps I missed and called Juan back to let him know.   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – Not able to negotiate. Took the position offered to me.

Associate Interview

Associate
Bethesda, MD

I applied online and the process took 3 days - interviewed at Giant Food Stores.

Interview Details – Very easy interview process. Mostly ask simple questions such as why are you applying to this job, previous experience, and availability. I don't think they ask any difficult questions, anybody who can do manual labor and speak English or Spanish can get the job. The work is very low-skill and repetitive so I would only recommend this job to high-school students.

Interview Question – Asked me about why I looked angry in my DL picture. Probably because I had to wait at the MVA for 5 hours to get it...   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – No negotiation, take or leave the base pay, slightly higher for stock clerks that for cashiers.
