Maintenance Interview

Maintenance
Bangor, ME

I applied in-person and the process took 5 days - interviewed at Hannaford Bros. in August 2013.

Interview Details – Pretty simple interview. They ask about past interactions you have had with customers, good and bad. They ask of times when you have faced a problem and what your solution was. They ask if you do any drugs. After all the questions they tell you about the position and introduce you to the department manager. He/she then asks some repeat questions.

Interview Question – Nothing was particularly unexpected. Just the normal questions about work ethic and why you want to work there.   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – I was offered $8.50/hr, and I said that was fine. Looking back, I probably could have attempted to get a little bit more.

Very Easy Interview

Assistant Stock Crew Manager Interview

Assistant Stock Crew Manager
Portsmouth, NH

I interviewed at Hannaford Bros. in April 2011.

Interview Details – Very comfortable and understanding. I like how they looked specifically at your work performance and overall ambition as a whole over just seniority. I was only eighteen when I got hired as an assistant manger which felt like a great accomplishment for me. Besides that, they ask you the standard generic questions like: Have you ever dealt with an angry customer and how did you go about handling it? And so on hahaha

Interview Question – There was nothing difficult or unexpected if your familiar with standard retail corporate questions, but if your not maybe: Name a specific time when you had to go above and beyond the call of duty for a customer or fellow associate, and how did you accomplish the set goal?   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – They initially low balled me, but I was able to read that they where eager to hire me. So I declined at first, then they came back straight away with a reasonable offer.
