    Application Details

    I applied through other source - interviewed at Hickory Farms in November 2011.

    Interview Details

    I was interviewed by phone from the Headway Employment organization. They had seen that I had over 10 years in retail sales and management experience, and asked me pertinent questions about sales and customer service. It was an easy interview, and I knew the position was one that would be right for me.

    Interview Questions
    • It was just a comment...dealing with my maturity (age, basically) wherein they simply (not
      offensively) mentioned that this position was ideal for a person of a certain achieved "maturity".

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 3 days - interviewed at Hickory Farms in October 2013.

    Interview Details

    The process is a joke! You interview with Regional Manager, then with Regional Area Supervisor, which is backwards, and then you are hired through a 3rd party company- Headway Workforce Solutions. You will go through a phone interview, a video interview, and then a face-to-face interview. Then you will be offered a position via phone call if you pass through all this.

    Interview Questions
    • Will you uphold our core values, including Integrity, Accountability, etc.. And these are values you will NEVER see exampled by anyone in upper management!   View Answer

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Houston, TX
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Hickory Farms in October 2012.

    Interview Details

    Interviewed with the manager of the mall kiosk (whose title was Retail Sales Associate Team Leader) at the food court of the mall. Very easygoing interview. This seemed to be a look you over meeting, as you would be interacting with the public. Simple questions as to reliable transportation, ability to stand for 12 hours, ability to operate a cash register, willingness to comply with food service regulations (hair must be covered, gloves worn.)
    Interview lasted less than 20 minutes. Online employee registration information given to finish at home.

    Sales Team Leader Interview

    Application Details

    I applied online - interviewed at Hickory Farms in November 2012.

    Interview Details

    I wouldn't call the poor excuse for a meeting, let alone, interview an interview at all. This entire company is ass-backwards. Personally, I was seemingly hired on a whim, and really rushed into a job that, in the end, had no merit whatsoever on my life. I wouldn't even recommend even getting to the interview process portion of any relationship with Hickory Farms. At best, MAYBE eat their food, but I would only say eat it in the form of a free sample, because paying for anything they sell is outrageous.

    Interview Questions
    • There literally were no questions asked of me. My resume was read, they told me I was hired, then hurried me into an apron.   Answer Question
    Negotiation Details
    Nothing was said about the compensation, until after the job was acquired.

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Hickory Farms in September 2012.

    Interview Details

    applied online through Headway recruiting. Was called within one week to conduct phone interview with Headway representative. Questions more behavioral than about my background and experience. Was thebpn called by Reginal Manager within a week for a basic phone screen. We then met in person for a brief face-to - face interview. I had the feeling it was more to check that I was presentable and personable.

    Interview Questions
    • None. I did google "most asked interview behavioral questions" or something like that, and thought about potential experiences that might help me during the interview. I was thoroughly prepared, and it showed.   Answer Question
    Negotiation Details
    Salary was stated up front, and I did not negotiate.
