    Interview Details

    I had been promoted internally but the process would still be similar to an outside hire. Initial phone interview with HR, then a panel interview. The panel interview would usually consist of 1-2 VP's, a representative from HR, and a director from another department.

    Store Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Savannah, GA
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Savannah, GA
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Save-A-Lot Food Stores in August 2013.

    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 Questions
    • 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

    We are a single store so our interview process is not very lengthy. we usually review applications and then after narrowing them down we do background checks and usually one interview is all we have and its more of a laid back, "tell us about yourself" kind of interview.

    Assistant Store Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Nashville, TN
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Nashville, TN
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took a weekinterviewed at Save-A-Lot Food Stores in May 2013.

    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.
