    Deli Clerk Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Application Details

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 3 daysinterviewed at Sobeys in October 2013.

    Interview Details

    Came into the interview in casual attire - everyone in the interview room was probably twice my age. Once in, the manager didn't expect many people to come (probably because me and some other girl came without the manager knowing).

    So first, the manager and Deli manager went around the "group" and asked us about ourselves and what we did. People in the group had business degrees, previous experience (in short, I was the only person who had NO experience whatsoever).

    All I remember is the manager asking random people questions like "what would you do if an employee stole" or "what if there is a long line up and customers are getting frustrated" and basically whenever I answered, the Deli manager always nodded her head.

    After the interview, we were told that we would get a call back and lol I got a call back within 4 hours of the interview.

    Training began a week later.

    Applied online and got a response 2 days after for a group interview. Half of the group was sent on a tour of the grocery store while the rest participated in interactive behavioral sessions and vice versa.

    Interactive session varies based on the scenario given to you. They consisted of selling an item of your choice, suggesting a meal out of certain food items given to you and behavioral scenarios. Would call back 2 days later to assess your progress. Manager commented on the answers, what should be done and reality of things. You also need to fill in your availability again and they will evaluate your answers. They may ask about your experiences too.
