    Cashier Interview

    Easy Interview

    Application

    The process took 4 days. I interviewed at Metro.

    Interview

    I handed in my resume and filled application to one of my friends who already worked there. My friend referred me and gave my resume and application to the manager. I got a call 2 days later from the manager asking me to come in for an interview. It wasn't even really an interview because I guess she knew that one of her employees knew me and my work ethic. It was more of a casual conversation about my availability, etc. I was hired on the spot, given a booklet to fill out forms and booked an orientation day. The "interview" lasted about 15 minutes. *TIP* If you want to stand out to all of the other applicants, you should conduct a follow-up call just to ensure your resume has been viewed for consideration of the position you applied for. Look up "how to follow-up on a resume" on google and you'll get a lot of advice!!

    Interview Questions

    • I wasn't asked any questions, but if I were to be asked any, they probably would've been the usual "why do you want to work here?" etc.   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    Cashier Interview

    Anonymous Employee
    Accepted Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took a week. I interviewed at Metro in January 2014.

    Interview

    They hire only on resume. As it is a basic job, they do not ask for previous experience. Candidates do not need to have extended skills. The only thing they ask is to have basic mathematics abilities and basic communication skills that will be used while serving customers. You have to smile and be polite and respectful. There is not a real interview for a cashier position if you are over qualified. They will spend 1 or 2 day training you.

    Negotiation

    No negotiation available.

    Easy Interview

    (Translated from English)

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Metro (Düsseldorf (Germany)) in July 2013.

    Interview

    Ich habe mich hier auf ein Online-Angebot beworben. 10 Tage danach hatte ich einen Anruf des Personalmanagers, der mich darum bat, meine Bewerbung durch ein Referenzschreiben zu vervollständigen. Dann redete ich mit dem Abteilungsleiter. Die Aufgaben wurden nicht weiter erklärt und das ist mein Hauptproblem, da ich nicht sicher war, welche Kompetenzen bzw. Qualitäten ich hervorheben sollte.

    I have replied to an offer posted online. 10 days after, I have had a call from the HR asking to complete my application with a reference letter. Then I have been talking to the department manager. The missions were not detailed and that has been my major problem since I was not too sure what qualities-competences to highlight.

    • Die Fragen waren eher allgemeiner Natur und bezogen sich auf meine Fähigkeiten, damit sie sehen konnten, was ich innerhalb des firmeneigenen Marketingteams verwenden und weiterentwickeln könnte.   The questions were rather common, and oriented on my skills in order for them to see what I could use and develop within the corporate marketing team.   1 Answer
