    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 5 daysinterviewed 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.
