    I worked at Save-A-Lot Food Stores


    Great company that believes in serving people in the community and create a vehicle in which people can become their own boss through ownership


    Change is something the culture struggles with. New people in the organization with experience elsewhere are not received well.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop changing the leadership and start influencing the people to accept change as a positive and not something that won't work at Save A Lot.

    Assistant Store Manager Interview

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 1+ weekinterviewed at Save-A-Lot Food Stores.

    Interview Details

    I applied online for the position of ASM. A few days later I received a phone call from a recruiter wanting to schedule a phone interview. The phone interview went well along with the assessment I did afterwards. The only obstacle was my salary range. I lowered it to the bare minimum I'd work for any company for! I was then scheduled for a store tour/interview. The store was in bad shape and wasn't conditioned at all. I spoke with the store manager. He asked very few questions and most of them were very basic. I had far more challenging questions than he did. After walking and talking with the SM, I felt far more qualified for his position than he did. The recruiter called me the following day to inform that they would not go any further with me. And that the feedback was that my skills were not what they were looking for. But in my opinion I just wasn't a good fit. I would've outshined and overshadowed a manager like himself.
