Cashier/Bagger Interview

Anonymous Employee
Boone, NC

I applied online and the process took 4+ weeks - interviewed at Harris Teeter in August 2012.

Interview Details – Fill out the online application. Definitely follow up with them. I had to call back multiple times. There's a drug test and then they'll train you with pay for a week after which you will be a full fledged Harris Teeter Associate.

Interview Question – I wasn't even really questioned. There were standard questions about my previous experience but that was about it.   Answer Question

Cashier Interview

Anonymous Employee
Cornelius, NC

I applied in-person and the process took 1+ week - interviewed at Harris Teeter in December 2010.

Interview Details – Availability was a key factor. The manager for the department for which I applied said that sundays were required, though to be assured that it would not be every week. This held true. The interview process was very informal, included most of the usual interview questions, and also a phone call survey to test one's honesty. In this call, several questions of decreasing significance were being asked, such as "if you found money on the ground, would you keep it or attempt to find it's rightful owner?", for which being real and honest about one's answers was beneficial. Do not try to sound great here, but be honest. After being hired, there was, of course, a probationary period during which I had to prove myself capable for the position of cashier, but there was a lot of help available to me. A great place to work for a grocery store.

Interview Question – So tell me about yourself.   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – I was offered the highest amount that I put down on my application for pay sought. Easy and straight forward.

Cashier Interview

Anonymous Interview Candidate

I applied online and the process took 1 week - interviewed at Harris Teeter in February 2014.

Interview Details – I submitted online application through Harris Teeter website, and the supervisor called me in 2 days to set the interview date.

Interview Question – I was asked whether I am attending college or not, how many hours i can work ( I said 25-30 hrs a week, and it was perfect for them), things I know about Harris Teeter, what made me to apply for this job at Harris Teeter .......

It was my first interview so I didn't know what to say to the questions. I read some interview answers before I went to interview, and it helped me a lot. Just google them :D Try to wear something formal but pretty. You don't have to suit up but anyway...
  Answer Question

Reason for Declining – They offered me $7.50/hr, but I needed a lot more, so I quitted.

Job Interview Interview

Anonymous Employee
Wake Forest, NC

I applied in-person and the process took 3 days - interviewed at Harris Teeter in May 2012.

Interview Details – In the beginning of the process you first have to apply online to the store of your choice. After applying to the store you have to take a customer service test and it is tricky. You can not think of things that you would do or say but you have to think in the mindset of a person working in customer service and you want to please every customer. Once the test is finished and has been submitted wait a few days for a call from the store. If the store has not contacted you in those few days then you have to go up there in person and introduce yourself. Once you have introduced yourself the store manager will go on a website and check and see if you scored well or high on the customer service test. If you got a high score you will start the hiring process, but if you failed start looking for another job…….

Interview Question – I don't believe there were any difficult questions.   Answer Question
