    Cashier Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Accepted Offer

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took a weekinterviewed at Loblaw.

    Interview

    Handed in application in-store, got called a few days later for an interview. Was asked "what do you think makes a good cashier?" Then very general questions about previous work history, and asked about availability. Then had to fill out a very long survey. A few days later, got a call to come in for training.

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 1+ weekinterviewed at Loblaw.

    Interview

    Very easy process - go in the store, fill in an application, attach my resume. I think it helped to know one of the cashiers in order to get the interview. The interview was simple - pretty much asked about when I could work, what hours I was looking for, and the manager wanted a reference to call.

    Cashier Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2 daysinterviewed at Loblaw.

    Interview

    I had a family member that worked at the Real Canadian Superstore and he helped set up an application for me. I met someone from the human resources and they gave me a hard copy employment form to fill out, along with tax forms. Afterwards, they set me up at a computer to take an online questionnaire. From what I remember, most of it was multiple choice. The options were: strongly agree, agree, neither agree nor disagree, disagree, and strongly disagree. There were situation questions, and questions about your opinion, such as one about how you felt about breaking rules to get things done.

    Interview Questions

    • There were a couple questions about colleague relationships/problems, like if you noticed that they were slacked off, what would you do.   Answer Question

    Grocery Clerk Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Accepted Offer

    Interview

    They will first call you for an interview (duh).. They ask basic questions such as "what would you do if a customer were to lose it on you?" "why do you want to work here?" etc.. If you got the job they will then ask your for a criminal check (if you are not a criminal, this should be no problem just give them a piece of ID, they will photocopy it and send it out for you) After they send it out, I had to wait about a week and a half until they called me to tell me it went through fine. They then invited to an orientation (basically learning the ins and outs of the store.. whats acceptable and whats not etc..) They will then make you wait for another call to find out when your first shift is!!

    Interview Questions

    • For me it was the "why do you want to work here?" I thought I messed up the whole interview because all I said was "I don't know, I need a job" but they took that for an answer.. but please think about this question. tell them some bs like you like to shop there and it seems like a nice place to work ect..   1 Answer

    Legal Department Interview

    Anonymous Employee
    Declined Offer

    Interview

    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
