I applied online and the process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Shaw's.

Interview Details – I applied online and received a call within a week asking me to come in for an interview. The interview was very straight forward. Asked questions about why I wanted to work for the company, previous experience, hours available, etc. After the interview they told me the hiring manager would call me back to schedule my orientation information.

Interview Question – Why Shaws over any other supermarket?   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – I had put on my online application a little over minimum wage and there was no negotiation after that.
