    I worked at Pick N Save part-time

    Pros

    I liked the flexible hours while in school. It was a simple job that anyone could do. It was a good environment that often worked with people that went to school with.

    Cons

    At times, it was extremely slow and got boring. I also did not like standing all day bagging groceries. You can have a pretty sore back after a day of bagging grocery.

    Application Details

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2 daysinterviewed at Pick N Save.

    Interview Details

    I applied online and had an interview 2 days later. I first had an interview with a woman who had about 7 pages of questions she asked me. A lot of them were along the lines of "give me an example of a specific time when..." and it was difficult because I hadn't experienced some of the things she asked about. Some other questions were: What are some achievements you are proud of, What other extracurricular activities or volunteering have you done? Then there were a few yes or no questions about if you do drugs, have felonies, if you have done petty crimes and whatnot. That interview lasted about 35 minutes, which was much longer than I expected. After she was done interviewing me, she had the store manager interview me. I remember a few questions that were along the lines of: Why do you want to work at a grocery store, think of a time when times were rough at home and how you dealt with work or school at the same time (they want to be able to see that you can separate your outside of work life from work), what is something that you can improve on. His interview with me only lasted 5 minutes. Then he asked me if I had any questions for him.

    As long as you present yourself in a friendly way and answer the questions the best you can, there is a good chance you will get it. Make sure you smile and make eye contact!
