Interview Answer

1 Answer


I said that "shared-fate" made me think of how we're all a team and we all have a hand in whether or not the team wins or loses. I went on to say that I understood it to mean a few things in terms of the grocery world, from the "team" being a shift, the department, the store, the region, etc. I also said that I was used to running a Produce Department but having to also spend a few hours a day cooking in the kitchen, cashiering, merchandising Grocery and Cheeses, etc. None of that "it's not my job" nonsense.
