    Applied online and received a call 3 days later for a group interview. The group interview was with store managers and 7 other applicants.

I received a call about 3 days later for a 1:1 interview I was asked a series of questions like "Why do you want to work for H-E-B?" Etc..

Offices are located in the same area as employee break room so the managers are easily accessible. Interview included your basic HR questions, nothing out of the ordinary or unexpected.

    Cashier Interview

    Anonymous Employee
    Anonymous Employee
    Application Details

    I interviewed online - interviewed at H E B.

    Interview Details

    A group interview consisting of judges and giving everyone task to do with crayons and paper and answering some questions during the whole thing. The interview felt pretty easy going and relaxed but unprofessional. It was like a screening into a kids clubhouse where you'd get in if you're cool enough, but for HEB it was like you needed to be bubbly. Even if you are outgoing and social, it wasn't enough. They want people with 'oh-so-wacky' personalities they can use to sell later. So if you're called for a group interview be prepared to sell yourself and lose your selfrespect.

    Interview Questions
    • Generic questions like "Why do you want to work here?", etc. and making a name tag, drawing a picture of what you see yourself doing if you were working for HEB, and sell a product to the judges.   Answer Question

    Night Stocker Interview

    Anonymous Employee  in  Houston, TX
    Anonymous Employee in Houston, TX
    Application Details

    I interviewed online. The process took 3 weeks - interviewed at H E B in October 2013.

    Interview Details

    Overall the process takes about 3 weeks. I filled out an app online and got a call to come in for a group interview about a week later. The group interview is pretty easygoing just as long as you pay attention, ask questions, and try to be as witty as possible (they aren't looking for anyone "boring" so try to stand out). After a week, I got a call for the 1-on-1 interview which I have my tomorrow. There will be a drug test and (from what I hear) a fairly stringent background check.

    Interview Questions
    • In the group interview there wasn't anything to difficult. They want to see if you know about different types of foods, how well you work with people, and if you have a friendly personality. You'll be quizzed on several random different foods, but it's not necessary to answer correctly (but it definitely can give you an edge!)   Answer Question

    Checker Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Application Details

    I interviewed online. The process took 1 week - interviewed at H E B in October 2013.

    Interview Details

    I applied and they called me the same week asking if I was still interested in the job. I said yes and they asked what time I would be available. I had a one on one interview in the manager's office. It felt pretty casual.

    Interview Questions
    • Tell us about a time you went out of your way to help someone.   Answer Question
    Negotiation Details
    They don't really mind you asking questions about hours and they act like nine dollars an hour isn't nearly enough and expect you to want more (which I did not since TX min wage is 7.25). They seem to want to cater to your life.
