    Interview Details

    I filled out a detailed application online, then about A week later I was contacted by a manager and did an impromptu interview over the phone. I was contacted about a week later to come into the local hen for an on-site interview. This interview was as much a job orientation as it was an interview. I was shown the ropes of the trade and before I left was told I could start within the following week.

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at H E B in October 2014.

    Interview Details

    Filled out an online application, about a week and a half later was called in for an interview. Went to the interview had standard questions like , Why do you want to work for HEB, what would you do if you caught another employee stealing, etc. I was upbeat and happy during the interview and got my 2nd interview on the spot and was told I had to wait on my background check. Waited about a week and a few days then received a phone call asking if I was still interested in the position which I said yes. Went to HEB to fill out about 1 1/2 hours of paperwork then scheduled a time to come back for training on computer, they give you five hours to finish it, it took me 4. Then they show you 3 classes to pick times for, Alcohol Sellers Training 2.5 hours, Checker 1 training 5 hours, Checker 2 training 5 hours. For the Checker training bring good shoes as you will be standing on a concrete floor the entire time. Pay period runs Monday- Sunday then you get paid the following Thursday by direct deposit.

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at H E B in October 2014.

    Interview Details

    I applied online and was called a week later by the department manager to attend a group interview two days later. The tables in the room were set up in a U shape with another table for the two managers at the front. There were applicants in the room applying for all different positions. We sat down in front of construction paper, crayons, and a question card. We were asked to stand up and answer the five questions on the card (What's your name? What job are you applying for? What are your hobbies? What job would you not want to do? When was a time that you received great customer service?). Then we were asked to draw a picture of ourselves doing the job we were applying for, and to stand up and explain the picture.The manager called back about an hour after the group interview to set up a one-on-one interview two days later.
    The one-on-one interview was slightly awkward/disorganized. First the department manager told me what position, how many hours, and what days SHE expected me to work (none of which were what I applied for). THEN she proceeded with the interview. They ask basic questions to see how you would work in a group and in different situations with customers. In the interview they probe to see how you handle authority and group problems. You also will sign a form for random drug testing. If you accept, you can only have 8 "incidents" per year (basically days missed, but like if you missed a week for the flu that would only count as 1 "incident"). They say they work around schedules as long as you know your plans for 2 weeks in advanced - but what they really mean is make sure your other schedules work around theirs.

    Reasons for Declining

    The department manager was extremely pushy and slightly rude. I'm a full-time student and applied to work about 18-20 hours a week, but she expected me to be able to work 30. I needed Sundays off, but they wouldn't employ you unless you would work both Saturday and Sunday. I applied for a cashier position, however they were going to give put me on bagging for three months. Basically, I wasn't getting the job or the hours I applied for.

    Easy, but must have open availability to get hired faster. They're looking for customer service oriented people. Tell them what they want to hear with ways you exhibit those qualities.

    I applied in-person – interviewed at H E B.

    Interview Details

    The interview process was in a group setting which I was unprepared for but quickly adjusted to. The interview was fun as it consisted of mock selling games where we were given an item to sell to the rest of the group. At the interview the manager requested my contact phone number and I was called immediately after for an offer.
