    Manager In Training Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Franklin, TN
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Franklin, TN
    Application Details

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 3+ monthsinterviewed at Mapco Express.

    Interview Details

    Apparently, ME entices management talent with the promise of something called its "manager-in-training" program, which in my case was a classic bait-and-switch. I was interviewed extensively for this position and told that I would start as a simple food preparer (in-store Quiznos co-brand), then transfer over to the registers as a cashier, at a starting salary of about $9.00 per hour. I was told that I would be hired as a manager-in-training. After taking the job, quickly found out that I had NOT been hired as an MIT but as a normal cashier. Further, whenever I asked about the MIT program and when I would move beyond the cash register/cashier position, my manager always told me that "_____ hasn't made a decision yet." I put up with this for about two months and finally found something better and moved on.

    Interview Questions
    • Nothing in the interview process was difficult or unexpected...these guys came after me...hard.   Answer Question
    Negotiation Details
    Unless you are desperate and need cash quickly, don't give these guys a second look. They have extraordinarily high turnover and a reputation for not treating their employees very well or fairly.

    Store Manager Interview

    Application Details

    I applied through other source. The process took 3 daysinterviewed at Mapco Express.

    Interview Details

    Good company, good supervisors... if they know what they are doing. The stores were iffy but we made them work. The biggest issue was how corporate steadily cut payroll hours over time. In order to meet budget, some store managers had to run the entire store alone until noon when a cashier could be brought in. Where's the love? Where's the safety? Huge morale killer. It takes a special animal. Only the high volume units had it slightly better, yet the smaller locations were easier to manage under such conditions.

    Interview Details

    Campus recruiting and got email from HR department said they have an operation analyst intern open in summer. Mapco asked for a 3 page slides to show how to optimize their labor scheduling system. It is like a case question aims to evaluate your analytic skill, problem solving skill and presentation skill.

    Interview Questions
    • I was invited to onsite interview and asked some questions about the C-store duties which need to use labor. Didn't prepare for that very well and it seems to measure candidate's broad thinking and detail orientated characteristics.   Answer Question

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 3 daysinterviewed at Mapco Express in May 2013.

    Interview Details

    I applied online. I received a phone call a few days later, and the manager left me a message, asking if I was still interested in the job. We played phone tag for a few days, but I finally got called in for an interview. I arrived early, and the manage parked me in a chair at the Quizno's area and told me to wait. I waited about ten minutes while she appeared to be chatting with a vendor, and then she came back with a clipboard that had a chart on it , describing a few of my cleaning duties, and explained how the chart worked. She asked if I thought I would be comfortable with completing these tasks, and I said yes. Then she asked me if I was still interested in the job. I said yes. She said she would send in my background check, and send me for a drug screening, and that was it. There were no real questions. I went for the drug screening and then she hired me.

    Interview Questions
    • There were no questions. That was the most unexpected part. This was the simplest and least thorough interview I have ever been to.   Answer Question
    Negotiation Details
    There was no negotiation. She didn't give me any details at all, but I was so desperate that I took the job anyway. I should have known better.
