    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 daysinterviewed at Smith's Food & Drug in May 2013.

    Interview

    There were two interviews when I was first hired. The first one is with the HR Manager and the Department Manager, basically asking the dreaded "describe yourself" questions. The second interview was just with the HR guy and it was the drug test, background check, and a tour of the store. It's like any other interview.

    Interview Questions

    • "How do you work well with people?" The managers knew I haven't had work experience so I mentally turned the question to "How would you normally treat people that are strangers?" It was fairly easy.   1 Answer

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1+ weekinterviewed at Smith's Food & Drug (Albuquerque, NM) in June 2012.

    Interview

    The way I was hired I was sort of just thrown in I never had an initial interview and started when all my paperwork was cleared. If you have prior experience with Smith's or grocery in general it helps a lot and if you are able to communicate effectively with management and colleagues then you're set!

    Interview Questions

    • My interview was really not formal at all and I wouldn't call it an interview.   Answer Question

    Getting hired in this company is just like getting hired at any grocery store. Come in dressed as if you want the store director to think you want a job. Speak clearly, and promote yourself and your skills.

    They paid me as much as they were allowed to for the position I was hired for. I was clear about my experience, and expectations, and they were as well.

    Interview

    Straightforward and not so stressful. You meet the HR manager and go over the position. Might have to fill out a few papers about drug testing and background check. Then the department manager meets up and goes over the work expectations and walks the department to explain the daily tasks
