Application Details

I applied online. The process took 4 weeksinterviewed at Harris Teeter in June 2014.

Interview Details

The process took a long time, but I got the job.

Went on their website and applied to what seemed like a dozen different positions at a local one near my house. I was soon contacted by a hiring manager for a position I actually didn't apply for, but was happy to get the call and went in for the interview.

At the interview it was very informal (even though I dressed formally for the occasion!) I was asked some very easy questions, the usual "Where do you see yourself", "Why harris teeter and not safeway?", "What is your greatest accomplishment?"

I had to go through a background check afterwards, that took about a week or so (Depending on how many states/employers/homes you've lived or worked it can take longer or shorter)

I was cleared for the check, and then given a time to take a drug test. Mine was a saliva test, I went in and was asked to hold it under my tongue until the sensor turned blue on the test stick.

That was sent in, and within about a week I was given another call that said I was cleared and ready to work after filling out the paperwork and doing my training.

Negotiation Details

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Harris Teeter in February 2014.

    Interview Details

    Interview, drug test job. They actually take a couple of weeks and about twenty online tests to ascertain whether you have what it takes to be able to impale a raw chicken on a skewer repeatedly, so that the rotisserie chickens can spin around at high heat to sate the ravenous appetities of local college patrons.

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 4 daysinterviewed at Harris Teeter in November 2010.

    Interview Details

    Very simple, applied online, was called to come to interview, very friendly interview...was informed of job responsibilities, although not given the job I applied for. It helps to have been referenced by a good current employee, as in my case. I feel like that's a guaranteed way to get the job rather that 'cold applying' or something of that nature.
