    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a weekinterviewed at Stop & Shop (East Providence, RI) in June 2015.

    Interview

    Very quick and simple. I had to give a quick recap of my previous retail job and explain a few hard situations I handled. I was bubbly and cheerful so they could see I was a people-person and I was guaranteed a job after the background check was finished. And once it was I was called in to sign the paper and I was hired!

    Easy Interview

    Application

    The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at Stop & Shop (Weymouth, MA).

    Interview

    I did their online application & got a call either the next day or only a couple days later, I forget now almost 4 years later. There were very few questions, none really, it was more of a "you're hired" than anything. I came in the following day to do the hiring paperwork, they sent me to have a drug test done & when the results came back I got my starting date.

    Interview Questions

    • Can you lift, pull, and whatever at least 50 pounds is maybe the only relevant question. It was not really a vigorous interview. I was told it was a hard job.   1 Answer

    Negotiation

    The job is union, there is really nothing to negotiate in the way of pay for this position.

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2 daysinterviewed at Stop & Shop (Boston, MA).

    I met with my store manager first to see if I really wanted to go full-time. Then I set up a meeting with the Meat Department district manager. Sat down with him for about an hour. I dressed up nice and I took it very seriously. All I was asked was if I drove and if I was willing to travel. The way I saw it was if the guy likes me I got the job.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at Stop & Shop.

    Interview

    Overall the interview process was simple. Had to fill out a basic questionnaire online. Called in to interview. I had little experience but I don't think it mattered. I was only looking for a temporary summer job and they were okay with that. I don't think they're that selective so if you can answer the questions and seem normal you should be okay.

    I applied online – interviewed at Stop & Shop.

    Interview

    I applied online. They gave me a call about a week or two later and scheduled an interview. I went in and spoke to the manager. He asked me why I want to work at stop & shop, tell me about yourself, when would I be available. Interview took less than 10 minutes. He then asked me to fill in some paperwork, and he said he'd call back to schedule a second interview which is basically so they can tell you that you got the job. He called back two days later and I went in and just filled in paperwork. Then started training and work.
