Courtesy Clerk Interview

Courtesy Clerk
Agoura Hills, CA

I applied in-person and the process took a day - interviewed at Vons in June 2013.

Interview Details – I walked in and they said they were doing interviews that day so they would give me one too. Thirty minutes later I was upstairs in the break room and the Hiring Manager was asking me a few simple questions. I had no preparation for the interview and was still able to easily answer all the questions.

Interview Question – There were no difficult or unexpected questions, it was all personal questions: my availability, my ability to handle rude/angry customers, how long I plan to keep the job, etc.   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – There isn't really anything to negotiate.
