    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks - interviewed at ShopKo Stores.

    Interview Details

    Minimal questions. Not impressive. More often than not, incompetent people were hired by upper management. Seemed if one was a warm body you were hired. Also false promises made during interview that my many years of experience would be brought to attention of DM. This NEVER happened.

    Interview Questions
    Negotiation Details
    There was no negotiation. Plan on 7.25 to 8.00 an hours regardless of your experience.
    Deep regret I accepted employment with Shopko. Had MUCH more experience than interviewer and 95% of employees on staff.

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took a day - interviewed at ShopKo Stores in April 2010.

    Interview Details

    Panel interview - they asked behavior based interview questions and it was a bit tricky. They ask for specific situations and then they ask what happened, what you did, and other questions around the situation. You better know all the sides or else you're in trouble. All in all, it was tougher than normal.
