I applied through a recruiter and the process took 3 days - interviewed at Schnuck Markets in January 2010.

Interview Question – Where do you see yourself in 5 years from now ...   Answer Question

Produce Clerk Interview

Produce Clerk
Webster Groves, St. Louis, MO

I applied online and the process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Schnuck Markets in March 2014.

Interview Details – The turnover rate for certain positions at Schnuck Markets appears to be quite high. I was contacted swiftly after submitting a single application online, and was called in for an interview. My interviewer was familiar with my reference, a friend who had worked in produce for a long time at multiple Schnuck's locations and was completing his journeyman training for a manager position. They asked me some standard questions, how did I hear about the job, why did you want it, etc, and told me what they liked about my application (that I sounded was reassuringly dedicated). I was offered a position as a meat porter (cleans the butcher area) and given a tour of that position's location and duties. I declined the position and asked if there were other positions available. The interviewer shuffled through a large folder of positions, and offered me a position at a different store as a produce clerk, which I accepted. I was scheduled for orientation at a third location and attended orientation for a generalized briefing on what it is like to work for Schnuck's. Shortly thereafter, I was scheduled for an orientation and training at the location I would be working at and watched some awful training videos.

Interview Question – Would you rather have a different position?   View Answer

Negotiation Details – A different position was agreed upon at no discernible discomfort to the interviewer, although I myself was nervous that declining one position would demonstrate unfavorable values such as a lack of dedication to the interviewer and jeopardize my chances of being accepted for any position.
