    Customer Service Interview

    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4 weeksinterviewed at King Soopers (Fort Collins, CO) in July 2015.

    Interview

    The manager was very disorganized, and she had half the papers for me, and half from a different interview. She had to stop and print the correct paper work for me. She told me that she was running out of time and was going to hurry the interview and rush me on my answers, but still expect me to answer every answer with the best answer I could give, but she often ended up cutting me off of each question. She told me that she only had 25 minutes to do this, and ended up taking over an hour... I was told that she would love to hire me, but she doesn't like that I am a student in college. She said they necessarily don't hate students, but she would always hire a non student over me (a student due to availability issues, even though I was available every day after 12:30pm and some days after 10am). However she said she loved me and wanted to hire me, so she was going to hire me, but just wasn't sure when i can start since i start school in a month. She didn't want me to change my availability and asked if I could change my school schedule around or take different classes so I could work more during the school year. Overall, I finally got hired, but I am not taking the position due to the fact of how I felt during the interview. I was actually very surprised at how difficult some questions were, but was able to answer them all, and she commented on how great I answered these questions.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a weekinterviewed at King Soopers in July 2014.

    Interview

    Job Fair Interview- met with store secretary, one HR rep from another store, and third HR rep from corporate. Group interview where we were asked questions and had to answer in front of the rest of the group. We were split into two groups to role play a product or service that Kings offered. After the 3 ladies were satisfied we were brought over individually to discuss hours, position description and complete a drug test. Dependent upon results of the drug test and other background check(s) we would receive a call at a later date to start. (Side note: they promise that they can offer you flexibility with hours, but in actuality the schedule is seniority based, so you have little to no flexibility in that).

    Interview Questions

    • Asked questions related to Honesty, Integrity, Respect, Diversity, Safety and Inclusion (which are the values of the organization). Give an example of when you chose to do the right thing although it was not the popular opinion of co-workers? What is diversity to you? Tell us about a difficult time when you had to be honest. Why was it difficult? Tell us about a time when someone disrespected you? How did you handle the situation? What is your favorite product or service that King Soopers offers and why?   Answer Question

    Interview

    Interviewer was pretty friendly and the process went okay, stammered on some answers since I had no previous experience and did an oral drug test right afterward. Mostly what they're looking for is someone that's making sure they have a lasting impression as customers leave a store.
