    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Eden Prairie, MN
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Eden Prairie, MN
    Application Details

    I applied through other source. The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at SUPERVALU in June 2012.

    Interview Details

    Having made the transition from a temporary employee to a full-time employee, the interview process was somewat laid out. Current management, will assit with resume reviews and conduct mock interviews if you request it.

    If you are a new hire, the interview format will follow the SBO type of interview, first you will walk through your resume with your interviewer, then you will be asked a series of SBO questions. Many interviewers are looking for in-depth answers, not just an overview. In this instance, it is better to be more detailed than less, however, don't over load them with stories.

    Interview Questions
    • I think the most difficult question was how to phrase unpleasant working situations which had challenged me the most without bashing a former manager / employer.   Answer Question
    Negotiation Details
    In this position there wasn't any negotiation, as I knew exactly what the salary was set at prior to applying.

    Anonymous Employee in Boise, ID
    Application Details

    I applied in-person. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at SUPERVALU in July 2010.

    Interview Details

    I was actually hired by a local grocery chain, but was kept on when Supervalu bought it out. I never had to go thru any type of interview process, but when our annual reviews came around I did have one pet peeve. We had to do a self evaluation which was extremely difficult for me-I thought my manager was a bit lazy in this regard.

    Interview Questions
    • I guess one of the most difficult questions in general is when they ask "where do you see yourself in 5 years".   Answer Question
