Store Clerk Interview

Store Clerk
West Babylon, NY

I applied online and the process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Stop & Shop in January 2012.

Interview Details – I applied through the company website online. I received a call from a hiring manager in regards to scheduling an interview. The interview was very brief and few questions were asked. He announced I was in fact hired that meeting and I started my training the following week. Overall I'd say it was a relatively simple and straightforward process. P.s All store clerks are required to start out as part-timers and you must work towards full time employment, should you desire to do so.

Negotiation Details – Non-negotiable. The job in particular is offered on a "take it or leave it" basis..
