    I applied online. I interviewed at Stop & Shop.

    Wasn't much of an interview. They contacted me after filling out an online application a few weeks earlier. I was offered the job on the phone and just needed to go in to fill out the necessary paperwork.

    Cashier Interview

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 5 days. I interviewed at Stop & Shop (Lexington, MA) in July 2015.

    Interview

    Got an interview a few days after applying online. Interview was brief. I didn't get the job because I played a sport and Stop & Shop does not hire just for the summer. The manager also said there were rules about minors (I am 17) working a minimum of 15 hours a week not including Sundays and not being able to work after 9pm on weekdays, which I am not sure is actually true since lots of my friends work until midnight on weekdays and only once a week.

    Cashier Interview

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed 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!

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 days. I interviewed at Stop & Shop in June 2015.

    Interview

    I arrived 15 minutes early and went to the customer service desk and met up with the hiring manager. I was how I heard they were hiring (I answered I had a network of friends who worked at local stores) and they had asked me when I was available to work. She made it clear that the store hires based on need, and they would call me back in a few days if they were interest, which they didn't.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took a week. I interviewed at Stop & Shop in June 2015.

    Interview

    Interviewed with the District Director and Human Resource Manager. Interview was fair. Questions were geared more towards life experience. District Director seemed very invested in the position and wanted someone who was in it for the long haul.

    Overnight Grocery Interview

    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed 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.

Some of the same questions, with more specific questions, like salary expectations, etc.
