I applied through other source - interviewed at Save-A-Lot Food Stores in May 2010.
Interview Details – Fairly thorough process. Several interviews with district managers, store managers, personnel and sometimes regional manager. Standard drug and background check. Online testing both for job knowledge and emotional issues. Overall not a bad process. It was helpful to go through the process knowing that they had a training program in place if you did make it to the position. Be aware that even though they are a good company to work for they are not as good at following up on the bonuses that seem to be promised in the interview process.

Interview Details – Applied with resume online.. Got a call back from a recruiter at HR. 2 phone interviews, then you have to fill out an online application. Then take a test that took me 3 hours to complete. Phone interview with the DM. Now you get to the face to face interview. The district manager then made me fill out another application, by hand (add a good 45 minutes to navigate the 16 page application). When I finally got to interview, I was faced with a man who was so obviously dispassionate about the company he represented it angered me, an unemployed retail veteran with years of experience, which I felt this man was wasting not only my time, but the tank of gas it cost to get to the interview. His questions were vague; never even looked at the application I had just taken time to fill out. His reactions were brusk and really downright rude. I asked more questions than he bothered to. It was a very unsettling experience, which I felt was a waste of my time.
I would like to say that I had better interaction with the HR recruiter, Porsha Finney. In speaking with her, it was her passion for her job that really had gotten me excited about working for SAL.
Interview Question – The most difficult or unexpected question I could come up with at the face to face with the district manager was to myself......Did I really want to work for a man so unhappy with his career. Where was his passion for his company? Answer Question

Interview Details – I had a phone interview with a member of their human resources. After looking at their company reviews on line, I was a little skeptical about their company. One of the first things they brought up is the fact this is a hands on job and that as a manager you're not really a manager but a worker. It doesn't seem like a smart position to build a career.

Reason for Declining – I didn't like the vibe I got from the company.
