Salem, MA

I applied in-person and the process took 1 week - interviewed at Market Basket in September 2010.

Interview Details – Just asked me my time frames, about my work ethics, any activities I do outside of school and school. They basically are just looking to find out when you can work. It was very easy and I already had the job. Make sure you wear something decently nice and have a good shave. Have seen people rejected from interviews cause of how they've dressed/looked.

Bagger Interview

Leominster, MA

I applied in-person and the process took a day - interviewed at Market Basket.

Interview Details – I applied and got the interview right away. The interview is about as bare-bones as you can get. You literally walk in, the manager asks for your documentation (ie. Application, license, SS etc.), he asks you some simple questions (where do you live, school, transportation etc.) and you're hired.

Interview Question – None. It was all very straight-forward.   Answer Question

The process took a day - interviewed at Market Basket in March 2009.

Store manager Bill Dube interviewed 1:1 in his office. Asked general questions and asked me what i wanted to make. I replied asking for whatever he would offer. I received $8/hr starting pay.

He assured me the store was covered in cameras and any theft would result in immediate penal action and job loss. He proceeded to give me a general tour, rendezvous with the produce manager and a copy of the dress code along with my first week training schedule.
