    Application Details

    I applied in-person. The process took 2 daysinterviewed at Safeway in September 2011.

    Interview Details

    I was hired at a large hiring event for a new store. The process was long, but not painful in the least. First you turned in your paperwork, then waited to meet with a current employee. If that employee said "yes" you went on to meet with a manager. After that you were drug tested and submitted some minimal information for a background check. I had a misstep only because someone wrote down my birth date incorrectly. It was corrected with a simple phone call.

    Interview Questions
    • None. It was fairly typical. No large hurdles and just your average ordinary interview. You were one of many to get a job. They were mainly looking for bodies, not long-term employees.   Answer Question
    Negotiation Details
    No negotiations necessary. All pay rates are specified by the Union contract.

    Interview Details

    Hiring and interview process are a group of questions that have no bearing on what you will be actually doing...if you are interviewing for a promotion they already have in mind who they will choose, so it is basically a waste of your time and theirs....
