    Fresh Foods-BBT Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate  in  Durham, NC
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Durham, NC
    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Harris Teeter in July 2012.

    Interview Details

    I was contacted by an outside agency that recruits for Harris Teeter. They found my resume online and conducted a phone interview. They then arranged for a face to face interview with a hiring manager. He suggested that with my experience, I should have no problem getting promoted due to the fact that Harris Teeter is expanding rapidly in our area. He then passed me along to the district manager. She interviewed me and then asked the store manager to talk with me for a bit, because she was undecided. He gave me an approval and then she made an offer.

    Negotiation Details
    The district manager played down my experience and offered me a lower than expected salary. I accepted it, but wish I would have held out for more. Harris Teeter does not give raises for work based merit, simply meet or exceed goals and everyone gets a raise.

    Cashier Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate  in  Cornelius, NC
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Cornelius, NC
    Application Details

    I applied in-person. 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.
