    Deli Clerk Interview

    Declined Offer
    Negative Experience

    Application

    I applied in-person – interviewed at Ingles Markets.

    Interview

    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

    I applied online. The process took a weekinterviewed at Ingles Markets (West Asheville, NC) in March 2015.

    Interview

    very simple casual conversational interview. Made sure I had transport, checked my availability, asked about food service experience/retail. The interviewer left me with an assistant manager, whom I chatted with, while she sent my acceptance email to me. Came back the next monday, to sign papers, did a spit drug test. Much less embarrassing/messy than the usual shtick. Training days later, very early.

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 1 dayinterviewed at Ingles Markets (Greenville, SC) in August 2010.

    Interview

    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.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 5 daysinterviewed at Ingles Markets (Morristown, TN) in August 2014.

    Interview

    I applied online, heard from the floor manager 4 days later. He brought me in for an interview. They sit you down in the deli area to interview. Very casual, laid back interview. They ask what grocery store experience you have and what you would like to do. I was asked if I would like to work as a cashier, bakery clerk, or deli clerk. I chose deli clerk because it had the best pay and most open hours. They only offered 24 hours per week. He brought the Deli Manager over to meet me. They told me I would be started off at a higher rate of pay because I had 10 years grocery store experience. They told me to watch my email to complete the hiring paperwork. I received the email a day later and was given an offer of $8 per hour. I declined the position at that point.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a weekinterviewed at Ingles Markets (Knoxville, TN).

    Interview

    Basic if any at all. Submit resume, hope to get called, ask to come in for orientation. Maybe was asked if I had any previous experience with cash handling. I got the job by talking to the store manager and had a relative working at the place. There isnt really a interview if you are applying for cashier or bagger, other positions do from what I hear.
