    Interview Details

    Very standard. I was discovered on careerbuilder.com and contacted by the store director and offered a chance to come in for an interview the next day. The questions were very standard as my job history and prior experience was covered. The classic "where do you see yourself in 5 years?" question came in at the end.

    Reasons for Declining

    I didn't think I would really enjoy the work environment at the corporate headquarters. It seems that most of the employees are older than 40 and I preferred to find somewhere that had more employees closer to my age group.

    Courtesy Clerk Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Stanwood, WA
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Stanwood, WA
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at Haggen in July 2012.

    Interview Details

    Got a call early in the morning requesting an interview that day. Got there and the Guest Service Manager took me upstairs into the break room and sat down with her for maybe about 20 minutes. Initial thoughts were that she was an uptight hardass and had no sense of humor. Had me answer some questions, and then asked me if I was willing to get a drug test done that day and I did. I had to go a couple cities over for the test but it is normal. Received another call a couple days later that they would like me to come in Monday morning for an orientation and training and started working the next day. Turns out the Guest Service Manager did in fact have a sense of humor at least.

    I applied in-person. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Haggen in October 2009.

    Interview Details

    Showed up in person to ask if the were hiring at the floral desk. Spoke with manager. Went back in to give resume. Manager called back to schedule interview. A one on one was conducted and it went very well and was easy as I was over-qualified and more experienced than manager. She was impressed and pretty much hired me on the spot. Asked to return for group interview with other managers. Was hired and welcomed aboard.

    Application Details

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Haggen.

    Interview Details

    I have to say this interview was not what I thought it would be. The interaction was just not there. The panel read questions off and did not make an effort to question my responses. It felt as though their minds were already made up prior to the interview taking place.
