Very Easy Interview

Gas Station Manager Interview

Gas Station Manager
Stoneham, MA

I applied online and the process took 2 days - interviewed at Stop & Shop.

Interview Details – The hiring process was kind of iffy, although I imagine it isn't like this for everyone. I went to my first interview where I really didn't say anything, the assistant manager basically talked the whole time and I barely got a word in. He ended it by saying they'd call me back, although that didn't happen. I called after a few days but he was apparently unavailable. I kept calling but I never got him, I only spoke with him when I went shopping a week later where he just said I was not hired.

I reapplied a month later, and I got a more standard inteview process. I met with someone else, and she was pleased with me. She scheduled another interview later that day, the second interview was with my former department manager. I was called a few days later and hired to work part time.

Interview Question – They didn't ask that many questions, certainly nothing extrordinary.   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – No, the company is unionized so whatever you get is standardized for every employee.

Very Easy Interview

Dairy Clerk Interview

Dairy Clerk
Brooklyn, NY

I applied online and the process took a day - interviewed at Stop & Shop in March 2014.

Interview Details – The interview process was fairly easy. I was called for an interview within a week of applying online. They had just remodeled the store so the experience was comfortable for me. My interview took approximately 1hour, the store is always busy which is good thing< which always means more hours for employees. The person that interviewing wanted to make sure i was knew about the grocery business which i did, as i currently work at another major supermarket for about 12 years now, so i was well prepared. I met the store manager, my dept manager and another assistant store manager whom were very nice to talk to. I was treated with respect which is all what i could have asked for.

Interview Question – The most difficult question i was asked was if i knew how to operate the electric jacks/forklift   View Answer

Negotiation Details – I was able to negotiate a salary that was acceptable to the amount of work i would be doing.
