    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took a weekinterviewed at Safeway in January 2014.

    Interview Details

    Really easy and laid back. I had no work experience going in and they just wanted to know how I plan to benefit the store. They wanted to make sure that I could work as a team with other workers and provide valuable customer service. They ask you to tell them about yourself and if you will work hard.

    I applied online and after no response I called the store a couple weeks later and scheduled an appointment. Pretty straight forward questions... Why do you want to work here? How would a previous employer describe you? Then I they administered the drug and background test...passed...then was hired on the spot.

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took a weekinterviewed at Safeway.

    Interview Details

    Glassdoor seriously helped me prepare myself for the interview. Everything mentioned here was asked. I had applied online and received a call from them within 2 weeks.

    The interview process was fairly slow. With me there were 3 other people in waiting. The interviewer had 2 sets of 3 pages and he asked me questions like, why i was interested in working for safeway and a situation where i had to go above and beyond. no questions were asked regarding wage. they asked how ive handled difficult customers in the past.

    they are basically looking for peppy individuals. Have a smile on ur face. be confident. dress professionally(dont over do it) and prep ur answers in advance.

    It went pretty well and i was hired. its been 2 weeks since the interview, background check and final paper work and i still i havent received a scehdule. thats the most annoying part

    Interview Questions
    • no difficult question as such. there were questions like

      1) what 3 things would you suggest to a customer who buys cake from safeway.
      2) Pick one of the products sold at our stores and suggest it to a customer.
