    Cashier/Bagger Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Stop & Shop.

    Interview Details

    I submitted my application online and received a call a week later to come in to meet the hiring manager. The "interview" was more like an informal chat, which was expected given the position I was applying for.

    Keep in mind I was in high school and looking for a part-time summer job just to stay busy. Apply early in the summer for the best chance since the number of applications skyrockets once schools get out.

    Interview Questions

    Application Details

    I applied in-person. The process took 3 daysinterviewed at Stop & Shop in July 2014.

    Interview Details

    Interviews were not very long. What was went over was any special skills and availability. Afterwards, there was a briefing of what the job asks of you and then you are told that you will be called back for anything else. I got a call back the same day saying I was hired.

    Gas Station Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Stoneham, MA
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 2 daysinterviewed 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 Questions
    • They didn't ask that many questions, certainly nothing extrordinary.   Answer Question

    Cashier Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Hampton Bays, NY
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 6 daysinterviewed at Stop & Shop in June 2014.

    Interview Details

    I applied online, and a few days later got a call to come in for an interview the next day. It wasn't exactly an interview though, because they just asked why I didn't go back to [previous employer] and hired me within 5 minutes of walking in the store. I already start next week. The only downside is minimum wage payment, but after 30 days your payment goes up by .25 an hour.

    They said $8/hr which was standard so I didn't fight it.

    A relative works in the store. This person asked the manager to look at my application first. I came in after school (I was 16) for about 20 minutes and talked to the manager about school. I came in later that week to get the paperwork sorted, and that was it. I was hired pretty much from the moment I walked in the door.

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took a dayinterviewed at Stop & Shop in May 2014.

    Interview Details

    The front-end manager kept me waiting for almost an hour before finally interviewing me. He asked the typical questions that try to assess your personality and temperament. Because the interview took place in the manager's office, I got to see how they interacted with one another which was pretty unprofessional, to be honest.
