Customer Service Lead Interview

Customer Service Lead

I applied through an employee referral and the process took 3 days - interviewed at Winn-Dixie in June 2010.

Interview Details – Typical interview questions "tell me about a time that you had a conflict and how you solved it" blah blah blah, nothing special

Interview Question – what would you do if a customer was trying to rob the store   View Answer

Negotiation Details – no negotions. I was started at cashier pay but was hired as a 1st step manager (customer service lead) but actually did the job of ISC (2nd level manager, the person who runs the cash office) so basicly I was being paid $7.23 an hour.. same as the cashiers, yet I was held responsible for $30,000 or so a day,

Bakery Associate Interview

Bakery Associate
Columbus, GA

I applied online and the process took 3 weeks - interviewed at Winn-Dixie in February 2014.

Interview Details – I applied online and got a call a few weeks later to set up and interview for the next day. I was asked two or three regular interview questions. Then I was asked about my major and what I planned to do after I graduated. I haven't really thought about that so I kinda just said some things. The rest of the interview the store manager talked about when he was young and things like that. I was hired on the spot and I filled out a form online and got the information to take a drug test.

Interview Question – If you were the manager of a grocery store what would be your top three priorities?   Answer Question

Cashier Interview

Cashier
Edgewater, FL

I applied online and the process took 5 weeks - interviewed at Winn-Dixie in September 2012.

Interview Details – This was my first job, so I called everyday for after I put in an online application. After about 2 weeks they called me back, and asked if I could go in for a same-day interview. I accepted and went about an hour later. The woman who interviewed and hired me was a manager I worked closely with after starting. The interview was very typical, with situational questions and general availability and personality questions. At the interview she told me she was interested in hiring me, and about 2 days later I took a drug test. The test took about 2 weeks to come back and I started orientation the following Monday. Overall the interview and hiring process took about a month.

Interview Question – Can you define customer service for me?   View Answer

Negotiation Details – No negotiation.
