    Bakery Clerk Interview

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Sprouts Farmers Market (Albuquerque, NM) in July 2015.

    Interview

    At a hotel, sign in, wait in a hallway with 5-10 other applicants. Called into a larger room where there are at least 20 interviewers sitting at tables where you are seated at which ever person is interviewing for a particular position; bakery, bulk, cashier, etc.. No introductions. Just straight to the questions. "Why do you want to work in the bakery department? What about working at 3 am? After answering questions about work ethics, I was told "thanks for coming in." Nothing else. Felt like speed dating more than an official interview. (When I was walking out to the parking lot, I met a lady who had just been interviewed. I asked her how it went. She said she was hired. I asked how the process worked for her. She said, "After the first room interview, if you are hired, they will send you to the room next door to fill out the necessary paperwork."

    Administrative Coordinator Interview

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Sprouts Farmers Market (San Marcos, CA) in June 2015.

    Interview

    Initially excited, as I applied online and was immediately invited to attend cattle call hiring event at a hotel. Waited in line, signed in and waited again to be called. Several tables were set up and there were multiple interviews going on at one time. Room extremely noisy. I was not asked any questions pertinent to skills, intelligence or personality. Realized early on that this process was to get as many "bodies" as possible. I was told that no offers being made that day. Two weeks later received call asking if I was still interested and to come in for a drug test. Nothing was discussed prior to or during this meeting regarding position or salary. Over a week later received email saying I passed drug test and to fill out background check. Again, no discussion as to salary or position. Another week later sent email to fill out new hire paperwork and received a call to come in to the store. By this point in the process, I was having serious second thoughts and knew I could not work for a company who handles people as chattel, but also curious to follow through to the end. I arrived at the store to meet with someone who sat me down and put a paper before me designating my job and salary. She asked if that was okay and I said no. She went to speak with the manager who came back to the office and after a brief discussion, I turned the position down. I felt the entire process was lacking in honesty, transparency, and integrity. My experience was one of bewilderment and disappointment that people can be treated in such a flippant manner (position I applied for was never available even though that is what I applied for specifically online, but was merely asked in the initial interview if I was willing to accept another position to which I replied "Possibly, if there was something available which suited my skills". In full disclosure, at the final offer meeting at the store, the manager said that he did state that this position was not available, but my claim is that he did not directly state that it was not available, but only eluded that I may have to settle for something else.) There was a bit of lying or stretching the truth as well, which I also found incredibly disheartening. I am one of the lucky ones though, as I have the luxury of turning down a position offered. Not all are so lucky and I hope that Sprouts figures out employees who are paid fairly and treated well are the most loyal and faithful and provide the best customer service. i am not sure I can even shop there anymore, but that is my personal choice to make. But I guess...business is business, right?
