    Customer Solutions Administrative Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Modesto, CA
    No Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through other source. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Save Mart (Modesto, CA) in November 2014.

    Interview

    Phone interview, then person to person. Found out later they already knew who they were hiring, applications and interviews just a formality. They have to post the job and interview more than 1 person to conform to union rules. Overall experience was less than positive. Interviews seemed bored and uninterested. Basically hiring supervisor and HR Rep were the only 2 in the interview and were doing it for procedure meeting only.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Save Mart (Modesto, CA) in October 2013.

    Interview

    I was callled for pre-interview questions by HR and the hiring manager for a Project Manager postion (I have over 20 years of PM, SOX and Green Belt). I was asked to come into the office the next day, but before I see them, I was asked to go to a different location to take a 'test'. This 'test' is about 2 hours long, on the computer and it one of those government overall accessment type of personality test, this one however, include a lot of fraction math. They do provide you with a calculator. I've taken these test at the county before and have passed all of them. I went to the corporate location for the interview, and the questions were basic enough for a PM position. Then when all was said and done, they said well we are looking at internal candiates as well. As soon as an employer says this, I as an outsider knows I'm not going to be considered and they can 'check off their EEOC list' and stay legal.

    Interview Questions

    • The one question that they didn't seem to like how I answered was 'how do you determine risk?' My answer was specific enough for project work and that was 'risk is determined by the project, and is determined by an undesriable outcome of the project if not implemented. I guess they might be looking for the dictionary verison of the work risk.   1 Answer
