    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. I interviewed at Albertsons Companies (Corona, CA) in June 2019.

    Interview

    I went into the store after having filled out an online application and spoke to a manager. He was extremely rude. He talked over my answers to his questions, and made it clear he thought I was being dishonest when I told him I lived in the area but didn't know anyone currently working in the store. He also insinuated he was unwilling to hire someone who would eventually need to work around a college class schedule. He was overtly noncommittal about looking up my online application, and literally said "I have better things to do today, but I'll be here tomorrow if you need to get ahold of me." I thanked him for his time, shook his hand and left.

    Application

    The process took 2+ weeks. I interviewed at Albertsons Companies.

    Interview

    I had worked for the company prior for 13 years at Safeway Corporate and later with Albertsons Corporate, having interviews and hired many people for this company.

    I warn you, it’s hard to get hired here as they love to promote upwards only from an entry level position. But if you do get an interview as an outside candidate you’re likely wasting your time as the hiring managers won’t bother to review your resume, or more importantly give you a fair shot. They have a unqualified internal candidate they’re going to promote.

    More scary is the interview questions are scripted where the hiring manager select a few same questions to ask all candidates, really lame ones too. It becomes how best can you answer 6-8 ridiculous questions with example, result and outcome...they are trained to only listen for this...so leave your personality out of it they don’t care. No need to explain who YOU are and your awesome background. If they are listening at all...they have someone in mind already.

    Lol not bitter, just passing along valuable intel, and super glad I didn’t get an offer, don’t what I was thinking. Lol

    Just reminded me how bad Albertsons altogether and grocery industry sucks!!! Better places to make a career!

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Albertsons Companies (Pleasanton, CA) in March 2019.

    Interview

    Had an initial phone screen with a recruiter followed by a video conference interview with the hiring manager from the IT department. The job description was vague so it was difficult to brush up on the kind of technologies being asked about during the interview. Overall, an easy process and friendly interviewers.
