I was called for an interview the day I turned in my paperwork.

Interview Details – I filled out an application, but got no response for 2 weeks; I called them and they scheduled an interview with me. The interview was relaxed. No difficult questions were asked.

Interview Details – Everyone is nice. The new over-all store manager is awesome. I needed to keep the job but I was a temp. so the process to transfer to another city was smooth sailing!
Interview Question – Nothing was difficult...questions about how you would react in hypothetical situations in a grocery store. Answer Question
Negotiation Details –
I didn't negotiate my pay. And raises may or may not happen? Depends on the manager really. The deli and the meat deparment pay the best starting... I only make $8.00.
The hard part is if you are hired as a Temp and you plan on staying with the company... You'll either have to transfer to another store or hope they want to keep you. I recommend cross-training in different departments. Make yourself an asset to the company.
This location is great in the summer if you get hired in the deli. You can be temporary and get near full-time hours. But when fall roles around...I advice you be skilled in more than one department. You might get the boot if you're just temporary.

Interview Question – Are you capable of doing the job? Answer Question
I applied in-person and the process took a day - interviewed at Lowe's Foods in April 2011.
Interview Details – The interviewer was kind and fairly laid back. The process was designed to feel as personal and guided as possible espicially when negioitaion of pay was involved. The process was however, pretty quick and painless as the standard questions of background, personal stories and "what if" questions where casually brought up and addressed. The interview was fairly indicative to the work culture that the company wants as a face, the good "yes ma'am, no ma'am" personality. So long as if you have some type of work history and can present the smiling face personality a 1:1 interview is easy.
Interview Question – What moment in your life demonstrates your ability to work as a team player? Answer Question
Negotiation Details – I was able to negoiate a fair hourly wage, however I would recommend that you ease up your pay enough that the interviewer won't balk at the thought. If you don't and allow yourself to accept the pay or don't up the ante to your liking, you will end up losing a decent some of money for ome time.
