    Application

    I applied online. The process took a weekinterviewed at Safeway (Phoenix, AZ) in August 2013.

    Interview

    Interviewed in the breakroom. I got to meet coworkers from another store. Central interview location is pretty far for everyone not living next to it. No instruction was given on where to go once I arrived at the store, so I asked the first employee I saw. They were very helpful.

    Liquor Merchandiser Interview

    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through other source. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at Safeway (Phoenix, AZ) in August 2011.

    Interview

    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
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Safeway (Phoenix, AZ) in March 2011.

    Interview

    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

    No negotiation. Courtesy clerks get minimum wage and it seemed like you had no say in how many hours you worked.
