    Application Details

    I applied in-person - interviewed at Ingles Markets.

    Interview Details

    Seven minutes of nothing but fluff....No opportunities here. This was a triage interview for them. They're desperate to fill jobs, because they lose people as fast as they hire them. Terrible culture.

    Application Details

    I applied in-person. The process took a day - interviewed at Ingles Markets in August 2010.

    Interview Details

    During the interview process it was laid back and casual. I interview with one of the previous Customer Service managers. It was for a cashier position so it was basic questions such as are you capable doing basic math just in case you type in a wrong amount for the amount of cash that you are using. Another question was do you have issues with asking for donations? Are you uncomfortable with cleaning restrooms, and Then casual question to get to know my personality. that way they would know that i am capable of having a normal conversation with customers. the interviews are normally set up in their deli.

    The process took a day - interviewed at Ingles Markets in May 2007.

    Interview Details

    It was a very very short waste of my time that included a short 1:1 interview, a drug test, and a background test. It is required that ALL of their employees be subject to an initial drug test in their own labs, and random drug tests throughout the employment term.
