    Entry Level Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Alexandria, VA
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Alexandria, VA
    Application Details

    I applied online – interviewed at Wegmans.

    Interview Details

    i had a phone interview which actually occurred about 4 minutes before the scheduled time. So heads up as they might just call a few minutes early. Not sure if this was on purpose or not but be advised nevertheless. The young lady asking the questions had my resume ready as she asked me the questions so do the same. She asked me why i added a company. It was in same line of insurance business that i had left so she accepted that line of reasoning. I was my usual funny and crarming self so i suggest being friendly and a bit funny if you can pull it off. she appreciated that and it showed my silly side which in retail comes in handy. questions are standard that you can google. i got a call one week later for a personal interview which is scheduled for this month. easy do. just be natural, don't force it. she types answers as you respond so be clear and concise so she can be exacting and capture all the goodness. good luck,

    I applied online. The process took 2+ weeksinterviewed at Wegmans in December 2014.

    Interview Details

    After applying, an HR representative sent me an e-mail requesting a time for a phone interview. After the phone interview, I scheduled a time for an in-person interview. I then interviewed in person.

    The environment was very friendly. Everyone involved seemed to take a personal interest in finding the job that's right for me. It also helps that the store I interviewed in has a good atmosphere to start.

    Stocker Interview

    Interview Details

    Slow and ineffectual, kind of like this process. This is really counter-productive, and yet you STILL make people jump through these hoops just to get some basic info on companies. I know nothing is free, but come on. Step your game up. Provide something more and ask me fewer than 50 questions on what is, let's face it, some pretty inconsequential stuff when we're talking about a stocking position.

    Pharmacy Technician Interview

    Application Details

    I applied online – interviewed at Wegmans.

    Interview Details

    I applied online and was give a call by a lovely HR lady in couple of days to schedule phone interview. That went very well. You just need to be open, cheerful, don't pause for too long and elaborate on your answers. Few days later I was called for in person interview. Two HRs I spoketo were amazingly pleasant people. Simple open ended questions "how you dealt with difficult customers", "how would yo ex-manager describe you", "tell me about time you had conflicts with coworkers". Smile, be outgoing, make couple of jokes, thank them for giving you a chance. Just be overall NICE and CONFIDENT. Make a point how you always wanted to be in pharmacy business and stress it (this is very true for me). Make sure to ask THEM questions, I think if you don't have any, it shows your lack of interest. I WANT to wok there very very much, so I had tons. 3 days later I got a call - I am hired.
    I want to note that I have no college education, certification or pharmacy work experience.

    Cashier Interview

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at Wegmans.

    Interview Details

    About a week after submitting my application online, I received an email asking for a phone interview. My phone interview went pretty well in my opinion, and the questions I was asked were the same questions other people applying for this position were asked. I was prepared for all of them because I did my research online and prepared my answers. I sent a thank you email and a few days later the lady called me back asking me to clarify my availability, so I gave her my school schedule (I'm in college) and told her when I could work. She said that working around my schedule would be no problem and gave me the impression that I had a good chance of getting hired. She told me that I would hear back within a week, but after over two weeks passed I received an email saying that I was not getting hired.

    Bakery Customer Service - Create-a-cake Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Wegmans in September 2014.

    Interview Details

    Applied online to a few different stores and got a call back a few days later to set up a phone interview for the next day. The HR rep called exactly when she said she would and we started the interview. We went over everything that was in the application first, like avalibility and yes and no questions. Then she asked a few interview questions like "What does outstanding customer service mean to you?", "What is a new product you have discovered lately that interests you and why?", " What is your favorite restaurant and food?". Then we went through every job I have had... She wanted to know what the job consisted of, why I left, and what I liked and disliked about the job. Also, she asked about a time where I was unemployed for a few months. She asked which stores i am interested in working at, and she noticed there was a Create-a-cake position available in the store that is my first preference so she asked if i was interested in that. Once the questions were done we set up an in person interview for that store and position.

    The 2nd interview was the hardest I think because it was just questions and me answering. She gave no feedback and showed no reactions so that made me more nervous. It was about 10 questions, maybe a little more. Questions from the phone interview were repeated though, which was nice. She said I'd hear back in a week or two.

    1 week later I got a call to set up the final interview. The final interview was with a different hr person and the bakery manager. Some questions were repeated again. Maybe 10 questions asked between the two. The atmosphere was much more relaxed which helped me feel more comfortable with my answers. Questions were pretty easy... Asked about food safety, asked about knives (they wanted to know if I knew how to chop.. Dice.. Etc), they asked about my previous jobs briefly. They said they had more interviews that day and the next, and I should hear back Monday.

    Heard back the next day and was offered the job at $9.25 starting, with raises twice a year. They have to do a background check which will take 5-6 days.
