    Application Details

    I applied through a staffing agency. The process took a day - interviewed at Raley's.

    Interview Details

    This was an interview set up by Nelson, a staffing agency. I was asked to take a skills/accounting test with Nelson for Raley's. After passing the test my resume and test score was forwarded to Raley's for consideration. It took a week before the recruiter got back to me to inform me that they would like to set up an interview. The interview was another week out. The one on one interview was with the actual manager the position is under. It was lengthy with 2 pages of questions consisting of specific accounting questions and general interview questions. It was one of the longest interview I have been to in one sitting.

    Interview Questions
    • Accounting questions included questions relating to depreciation calculation, accrual, fixed asset, adjustments, normal balances of specific accounts (assets & expenses). The other questions were just they typical interview questions like what are your strengths, weakness, what would your former boss say about you, why should I hire you,etc.   Answer Question

    Reasons for Declining

    I actually accepted the job and worked through orientation but quit after my first day because I accepted another offer at another job and wanted to hold both positions but Raley's does not want their employees to have second jobs so I decided to go with the position that paid more
