    Application

    I applied through other source – interviewed at SUPERVALU.

    Interview

    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

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

(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). The company is also one of... More
