    Liquor Merchandiser Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Phoenix, AZ
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Phoenix, AZ
    Application Details

    I applied through other source. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at Safeway in August 2011.

    Interview Details

    The company attempted to hire several liquor merchandisers during my time working there. Sometimes the jobs were posted internally, sometimes not. The initial interviews were done by phone with a group of corporate level managers asking you questions. I did not advance to any subsequent interviews. Not to rant, but it almost seemed the phone interview was a courtesy paid to me for being an employee that met the basic job requirements.

    Courtesy Clerk Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Phoenix, AZ
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Phoenix, AZ
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Safeway in March 2011.

    Interview Details

    Applied online after my friend who worked there told me they were looking to hire. They called me about 4 days later and asked me to come in for a one on one interview. The interview was about 15 minutes long and most of the questions were very basic and expected. I was offered the job on the spot and accepted.

    Interview Questions
    • Name a time where you were the leader of a group and had to problem solve to accomplish a task.
      There really were not any unexpected or odd questions. The interviewer had never done one before because the normal person was out that day. I think it would have been more in-depth if the normal interviewer was there.
       
      Answer Question
    Negotiation Details
    No negotiation. Courtesy clerks get minimum wage and it seemed like you had no say in how many hours you worked.
