    I worked at SUPERVALU full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    Worked my way up from entry level to management, and know many others who did the same. Tried out a variety of job functions to learn about the business.

    Cons

    Grocery isn't the sexiest field out there; you're not likely to wow anyone at a cocktail party with stories about working here!

    Application Details

    I applied through other source – interviewed at SUPERVALU.

    Interview Details

    They use an SBO (Situation, Behavior, Outcome) style interview. They will give you a list of competencies that are appropriate for the level of job you are seeking. (Make Sound Decisions, Act Strategically, Think Creatively, Manage Execution, Meet Customer Needs, etc). Then you need to give an example that fits the question they ask about that competency.

    Example: Meet Customer Needs - Tell me about a time that you had to deal with an unhappy customer.

    Then you need to tell them what the situation was - what made the customer unhappy.

    What was your behavior or in other words what did you do to calm the customer and correct the situation.

    Last what was the outcome - was the customer happy, etc.

    Negotiation Details
    I did try but there was no negotiations. The offer was the offer.

SUPERVALU is feeling pretty super following the acquisition of more than 1,100 supermarkets from fallen grocery giant Albertsons. Its purchase of the Albertsons' stores catapulted the chain to second place in the traditional grocery retail market (behind Kroger) with about 4,290 stores in some 40 US states. (It has since relinquished the #2 spot to Safeway.) The deal added half a dozen new banners, including Albertsons, Acme Markets, and Shaw's, to SUPERVALU's roster of stores (which includes Jewel-Osco, Cub Foods, Save-A-Lot, and Shop 'n Save).
