    Application Details

    I applied in-person. The process took 2 days - interviewed at Safeway in June 2010.

    Interview Details

    There wasn't much involved in the interview process. I just submitted my resume, and had a five minute conversation with the store manager. There was a drug test that I completed after being hired, and also a background check that was completed after I began working there. It was not difficult, and was a fairly quick process.
