    I interviewed in-person - interviewed at Stater Bros. in November 2010.

    Interview Details

    Look for the postings at your local store. Show up early and in business attire. Make sure you are not a drug user or have drank (Staters is VERY clear on No Drug/Alcohol). You will be waiting in line and filling out your application so bring clipboard and pen. Will be interviewed by one or more Keycarrier/Managers. If you pass the interview, then you will called in for training, where you will be given a drug test and learn more about company. You have to show up in business attire or white shirt and black pants. If you pass this then you will be called into a four hour training shift, from there you will learn your job. Then you will do full shifts from there.

    I interviewed in-person. The process took a day - interviewed at Stater Bros. in November 2013.

    Interview Details

    Waited with about 14 others in the employee lounge on the day and time the sign they posted on the door. Filled out and application and the manager went over the application with me. He asked how I found out about this job and said he'd try to fit me in. Went in the next day with a thank you note and gave it to him since there was no email to send anything to.

    Application Details

    I interviewed in-person. The process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Stater Bros. in December 2013.

    Interview Details

    Heard about a hiring and was told to line up around 6am the next morning. They passed out applications around 8 and started interviews at 8:30. The manager doesn't really ask you questions, they just review your application and ask you about your hours etc. Received a call 3 days later and was told to bring my SS card and ID to the store then go to a "final interview" at the Stater Bros Headquarters where me and other new hires sat in a classroom-like room and watched a couple videos and went over the employee book followed by a saliva drug test.

    Interview Details

    they have posting in front of the store behind main entrance glass and display interview dates to hire new people. its typical, dress formally and your answered simple questions and scenario questions by the employers. If they like you the second step they send you to little corporate office to do drug screening, background check and i believe another small interview (dont remember). Overall good experience , not bad.

    Interview Questions
    • I had no experience in customer service at the time so when they threw scenarios at me, i knew little to say about what to do in a situation. though the questions were common sense being asked at the moment.   Answer Question
