Accepted Offer – Interviewed in Parlin, NJ Sep 2008 – Reviewed Oct 26, 2012
Interview Details – I initially applied online and was then called in (but nowadays due to the economy you should call due to the sheer number of applicants) and given a short interview. I was asked about my strengths and what I wanted to do at Shoprite while we were sitting in a private room. I was offered a $7.35/hr salary at the time, for which there was no negotiation. Minimum wage was $6.35 back then. The HR manager was nice enough and I felt comfortable with him. This was the easiest interview I've ever had, with the questions being more how often I could work and would it conflict with my school schedules.
Interview Question – There weren't any difficult questions except what salary I wanted because I was new to the workforce at the time. View Answer
Negotiation Details – I was unable to negotiate because I didn't know how, and even if I had, I had no work experience to back myself up with.
