    Interview Details

    It was brutal. It was 45 minutes long. I listened to the interviewer talk about their spouse. Then I was told that they liked my truck (seriously). With 5 minutes left in the interview I had to ask for details about the job because it was not referenced once in the interview.

    Interview Questions
    Negotiation Details
    Absolutely infantile but I needed the job. The salary seemed arbitrary. I walked away with a job but shook my head all the way back to my magnificent truck.

    Legal Department Interview

    Interview Details

    It's a quick process and inbounding seems very structured, they will partner you with a buddy but the reality is that everyone is so pushed to their limits that you are basically on your own when it comes to getting your bearings. Be sure to inquire how many people were in your role before you in the last 5 years-- you may be surprised at the high turnover.

    Reasons for Declining

    I found out that there was a super high turnover rate and I didn't want to take any chances

    Application Details

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 1+ weekinterviewed at Loblaw Companies.

    Interview Details

    The position was contract and I only had one interview with the direct manager. The interviewing process will be different for full time positions. Booking a meeting room is difficult at Loblaw so my interview was held informally in the foyer off to the side so we had some privacy. This was no problem, as it was not busy.

    Interview Questions
    • The manager conducting the interview was very reasonable and there were no difficult questions. It was your standard Q&A and very informal, yet comfortable.   Answer Question
    Negotiation Details
    No negotiation because it was an entry level contract
