Cashier Interview

Cashier

I applied online and the process took 1 week - interviewed at WinCo Foods in February 2014.

Interview Details – A couple days after I applied online, they called me to come in the very next morning for an interview. At the interview, they had me fill out a quiz asking a couple customer service questions. Then he asked me why I answered the way I did and asked a couple more questions, maybe like five. They were standard questions - what skills can you bring, what would you do if you saw someone stealing, etc. The interview only took like ten minutes. Then they called me the next day to tell me I was "contingently" hired, provided I passed a background check and drug test. I filled out paperwork and did the drug test the same day and they said they'd call me within the next few days with the results.

Interview Question – What would you do if you saw your friend stealing?   Answer Question

Produce Clerk Interview

Produce Clerk

I applied online and the process took 2+ weeks - interviewed at WinCo Foods in April 2012.

Interview Details – Submitted application online for a new store opening. They called me in for an interview with about 300 other applicants. The questions they ask are rather common, "what would you do if a customer asked a question that you don't know the answer to," or "what do you think makes a great boss." After the first interview they told me that they would contact me within a couple weeks. I received an e-mail stating that they were currently pursuing other employee options but they would keep my information on file. About a week later I received a phone call to come in for a second interview. apparently "second interview" is code for you are hired, but we need some paperwork. When I arrived I filled out new hire paperwork and was given some drug testing papers. The company gives you 1 hour to complete your drug test, if you arrive at the testing facility any later then one hour later you fail automatically.

Interview Question – How would you handle a theft in the store.   View Answer
