    Application Details

    I applied online – interviewed at K-VA-T Food Stores.

    Interview Details

    When I interviewed I put in an application and was contacted by phone. There was no phone interview, simply scheduling for the initial interview with HR and whoever will be your Dept. Manager/Assistant Manager. I only had one interview and was hired, but now the company requires the first interview mentioned previously along with an interview with the store manager.

    Interview Questions
    Negotiation Details
    It was my first job so I was just happy to have it, but no, there's generally no negotiation. You put your availability on your application and HR calls applicants based on that. You might get hired in at a higher price point for experience, or rarely you might get hired in at full time, but for the most part, you are hired in at a flat beginning rate and you must make your way up. NOTE: Bakery/Deli and Meat Dept. get higher hourly wages automatically, but applicant must be 18 to work in either dept.
