    It was easy to schedule as long as you keep calling. Nothing is really that hard. If you are nice and respectful you will be fine. You don't need to walk in nervous because overall it was very simple. Just know a bit about the job you are going for.

    Pricing Coordinator Interview

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took a day - interviewed at Giant Food Stores in July 2013.

    Interview Details

    I only had one interview, I dressed casual business. The woman was friendly, but didn't ask too many questions. Over all it was a really easy interview and I knew by the end of the day if I got the job or not. They do always seem to push to hire for cashiering or baggers.

    Interview Questions
    • There weren't many difficult questions; the hardest one was "If there is a problem with a customer or another employee how would you handle the situation?"   Answer Question
    Negotiation Details
    It was pretty cut and dry. This is how much I can start you at, the only hours I can guarantee is 12. If you have prior experience they usually start you higher than minimum wage anyways so it's not too much of a problem.

    I applied online. The process took 2 days - interviewed at Giant Food Stores in October 2011.

    My interview was fairly easy; the hiring manager was nice and a generally happy person. She was easy to talk to, and an understanding person. I had to also sit through a couple orientation videos, and complete a lot of online tests to make sure I was ready for working at Giant and that I knew all of the basics before going to hands-on training.

    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.
