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.

I love working with people on both sides of the counter. Looking forward to starting. I will know more after I start and keep you posted.

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.

Cashier Interview

Cashier
Lancaster, PA

I applied online and the process took 2 months - interviewed at Giant Food Stores in February 2012.

Interview Details – Had to call the Hiring Manager every few weeks for a couple months before I got an interview. Once you get the interview, it means your application was decent and you'll probably be hired (as an associated at least). Unless you bomb the interview you're in.

Interview Question – Tell me about yourself.   View Answer

Negotiation Details – Whatever they offer in base pay is what you get. Don't try to negotiate. It probably won't get you far.

Deli Associate Interview

Deli Associate
Thorndale, PA

I applied online and the process took a day - interviewed at Giant Food Stores in June 2009.

Interview Details – Either they will call you or they won't. You go into giant and fill out the application on the computer. They usually will list at every store what specific positions they are hiring for. If the hiring manager calls you, they'll ask you to come in for a one on one interview. Nothing worth sweating over. It's as easy a process as it can possible get.

Interview Question – None of the questions were difficult or unexpected   Answer Question
