    Application

    I applied online – interviewed at Stop & Shop.

    Interview

    simple; applied on-line and followed-up in-person asking about status of application; got interview at that time and waited only a few more days before finding out I was hired.

    It was really that simple. There is nothing else to say about it but 30 words are required.

    Application

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

    Interview

    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.

    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.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4 daysinterviewed at Stop & Shop (Narragansett, RI) in November 2014.

    Interview

    Applied online and received a phone call from customer service manager within 15 minutes. Interviewed with hiring manager later that day lasted maybe 10 minutes he asked me very basic customer service questions- "Can you give me an example of how you would go above and beyond to help someone out?" We then went over what times I would be available to work. He said they had more interviews to conduct that day and they would call me tomorrow. The next day I received a call for a 2nd interview, at this one I basically gave them permission to preform a background check on me...again no offer just said they had more 2nd interviews to conduct. The next day they called and offered me the position, came in that same day to fill out paperwork and started working the next day.
