Courtesy Clerk Interview

Courtesy Clerk
Burbank, CA

I applied online and the process took a day - interviewed at Safeway in August 2011.

Interview Details – I was looking for a job and my friend told me Pavilions (One of Safeway's affiliate companies-like Vons) was hiring. I applied online and later follwed up by calling the store to make sure they received my application, and whether or not they were still hiring. I spoke to hiring manager and she asked if I could come in that day for an interview. The interview pretty much wasn't an interview, it was more of a meeting to tell me what I was going to be doing. So I knew I was hired within fifteen minutes. From my hiring date to my actual first day of work probably took about three months. But, then again, this was all happening when they were about to go on strike. I kept getting told they would call me back within the next day or two and tell me when I should come in for my first day. Well they never called. Lucky for them, I'm persistent ;] I called every day for about a week or so, when finally they called me one morning asking if I could come in in like 2 hours because another new hire was a no-show.

Negotiation Details – There was no negotiation. All new hires start at $8.10/hour. with every 600 hours you work, you get a ten cent raise, up to $8.50. Don't quote me on that last figure :x
