    Cashier/Bagger Interview

    Anonymous Employee in New York, NY
    Accepted Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 5 days. I interviewed at Stop & Shop (New York, NY) in October 2014.

    Interview

    They asked my work experience and the most important answer is your availability. If you say total availability, you have better chances of getting in. Weekends there are a must. They are a serious business. They don't like employees who call out often. Its always a busy store and time flies fast when you work here.

    Interview Questions

    • What are your work hours? Can you work on the weekends?   1 Answer

    Negotiation

    3 months probation, then you get in the union. They also have an increase after 3 months.

    Declined Offer
    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

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

    Interview

    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

    • The typical what's your background, where have you worked before, what's your motivation and availability to work. There were no difficult or unexpected questions.   Answer Question

    Reasons for Declining

    I decided to work elsewhere for the summer.

    Gas Station Manager Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Stoneham, MA
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at Stop & Shop (Stoneham, MA).

    Interview

    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

    Negotiation

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