Cashier
Pleasanton, CA

I applied online and the process took 1 week - interviewed 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.

Interview Question – Where do you see yourself in ten years?   Answer Question

Reason for Declining – I received a more valuable job opportunity elsewhere

Cashier Interview

Cashier
Spokane, WA

I applied online and the process took 4+ weeks - interviewed at Safeway in April 2009.

Interview Details – I had one interview. The hiring manager wanted me to work there because I had previous experience. Only had a few simple questions about my availability. No work related questions about customer service and such. Very easy interview. Even did a cotton swab drug test on the spot.

Interview Question – There was not a single hard question.   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – My previous job was for another grocery store, and I left there making journeyman wages, so I wanted to make sure I would be getting journeyman wages there as well. I was told I would be getting the top pay, but they hired me at entry level, and I had to stick it out making half of what I was making before for 2 months, (during my probation period.) After that, the union helped me get my deserved salary and everything was fine.
