    Cashier Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Application Details

    The process took a day - interviewed at Spartan Stores in August 2009.

    Interview Details

    Returned their call the same day, and a manager scheduled an interview with the director in one hour. I agreed, but when I got there I had to wait 20 minutes only to be told that he didn't have time to do it. So, I agreed to reschedule another interview in 3 days. Questions were about my past work history, why I left a job, but also asked financial questions about my previous company that had nothing to do with the job I was applying for.

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Application Details

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Spartan Stores.

    Interview Details

    There was just a single interview which was one-on-one. The questions asked were fairly generic and simple. There were no surprises during the process and the main focus was on ensuring that I had the skills needed to function well with customers as well as general knowledge of the store's layout.

    Interview Questions
    • The most difficult question was probably being asked what I could offer the company in terms of skills and experience.   Answer Question
    Negotiation Details
    There is no negotiation available. They extend an offer to you and you either accept it, and the job, or reject it.
