Cashier Interview

Anonymous Interview Candidate  in  Ottawa, ON (Canada)
Anonymous Interview Candidate in Ottawa, ON (Canada)
Application Details

I applied online. The process took 2 months - interviewed at Loblaw in August 2012.

Interview Details

I applied online and I got a call 3 weeks later telling me to fill out a questionnaire with psychological type questions. A few weeks after that I got a phone interview where they ask you about your availability and limitations. After this I think it was 1 month after I got a call from the store that I applied to saying they wanted an interview. The in-store interview was very casual, they didn't ask any "real" interview questions just conversational type things like what you do in your spare time...etc. I got the job right there.

    Application Details

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took a day - interviewed at Loblaw in August 2012.

    Interview Details

    The interview was one of one. He interviewer was really nice and it was in a quiet private room. He asked a lot of pretty easy, run-of-the-mill questions that you'd expect and I answered them all easily. However, because Im a student, they needed me to work Tuesday nights for some reason. (I have class Tuesday night) He seemed really disappointed that I couldnt work Tuesdays and told me he'd talk to human resources to try and find a position for me.

    He told me he really liked me... He told me I seemed really nice... He told me he'd try hard to find a position for me... He told me he'd call me asap.

    Never heard from him again. Kinda annoying.

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 2 days - interviewed at Loblaw.

    Interview Details

    A phone interview and then a follow up interview at the store. The questions were quite easy: they asked what was the most challenging thing that you have overcome, questions about how you would deal with team work, and what would you do if the customer had a complaint. They also asked about my tolerance of physical labour and how I deal with repetitive tasks. They were very nice.

    Interview Questions
    • Nothing hard. Probably the hardest question was about how you overcame your biggest challenge/problem with a co-worker.   Answer Question
    Reasons for Declining

    The store that wanted to hire me was too far.

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 4 weeks - interviewed at Loblaw in July 2011.

    Interview Details

    Applied online on the Loblaw Career website, received an email about 3 weeks later with a link to an electronic survey. Basically, the multiple-choice survey asked you questions regarding your personality and "what would you do" scenarios; after the survey, I received a phone call from the Front End Manager asking me to come into the store with ID. Interview was extremely short and easy - questions were: are you a student, when are you available, why do you want to work here ... was hired instantly. Training started within a week and took about 4 days then you were able to start working as a Cashier.

    Application Details

    I applied in-person. The process took a day - interviewed at Loblaw in November 2011.

    Interview Details

    The interview to me was a great experience. One day, as I went for grocery shopping I saw an advertisement that they would hold a Job Fair in a conference centre next to the store (Superstore) the next week. So I brought my resume with me and went in to apply. They have us ( there were lots of people who came in to apply) sitting at a laptop station to complete a 60 questions test in 15 minutes. Pretty much Personality test. Then I was called to a table representing the store I'd like to work at. The supervisor who interviewed me was very nice and thoughtful, she seemed very patient and interested in what I was saying to her. Basically she asked me about how would I handle a very angry customer and she was very satisfied about my answer. The interview took only 15 minutes. At the end she asked if I wanted to ask her any question. I was pretty much nervous so I said no but she asked if I was sure about it. And I literally told her I was nervous which I didn't know I shouldn't say that (lol). But she then spoke to the Recruiter who was sitting next to her that she liked me because I was being very honest. She then told me that just work hard and I would receive what I deserve, to grow with the company and considered it as a career.

    Interview Questions

    Application Details

    The process took a day - interviewed at Loblaw in August 2010.

    Interview Details

    Handed in resume at the customer service desk, got two messages on my answering machine. One for an interview as a cashier, the other was an interview for Joe Fresh as a sales associatiate. Called them both back and had two interviews arranged on different days. Interview for Joe Fresh was first. Was asked simple questions: What I knew about the company, how I would deal with certain difficult situations and so forth...
    The interview wasn't too bad...i was pretty nervous but it was just a one on one chat. The interviewer was very laid back and she sometimes used the wrong words which made me laugh. Was offered a position at the end of the interview after she did a background check.
