    Interior Designer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Kansas City, MO
    No Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at Associated Wholesale Grocers (Kansas City, MO) in October 2009.

    Interview

    I responded to an online advertisement via email. After not receiving a response for 2 weeks I followed up with another email and a phone call. 2 days later I received an email from the hiring manger asking for an time to do a phone interview. Which was followed by setting up a in-person interview. Following the in-person I followed up every week since (which has been 4 weeks) with no response from either the HR contact or the hiring manager.
    Interview was very by-the-book. Very structured, typical interview questions like "Tell me about your hardest client experience and how you resolved"

    Interview Questions

    • Every question was very typical. But one of the interesting ones was when the interviewer pointed to a random picture in my portfolio and asked me to "sell" her that design.   Answer Question

    I applied online. I interviewed at Associated Wholesale Grocers (Garden City, KS) in April 2017.

    Interview

    it didn't go far as they don't give any benefits for two years and i cut the interview off. I told the interviewer that I would have to decline the job because they have no benefits or insurance for two years and they sent me an e-mail saying I did not qualify for their job. I am more than qualified !!! I turned them down and did not waste their time because I knew I could not take a job w/out insurance!!!

    Order Selector Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Kenosha, WI
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4 days. I interviewed at Associated Wholesale Grocers (Kenosha, WI) in September 2017.

    Interview

    You'll show up at AWG, there will most likely be a line of people interviewing the same day as you. They hire many people at a time to fill orientation dates. I was asked about prior experience, they didn't check references, I was asked when I can start, I was asked if I have any issues with heavy lifting. Offered the job on the spot. If they say they'll call you, then you didn't get the job. They will also drug test you (urine sample) on the spot right after the interview. The test is instant. You will most likely start the following Monday if all goes well.

    Order Selector Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Kenosha, WI
    Accepted Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Associated Wholesale Grocers (Kenosha, WI) in December 2015.

    Interview

    I sat down and gave some information about myself. I had a lot to say so there was not much opportunity for the interviewer to throw questions at me. I definitely oversold myself since I was there dressed up as though I was getting an administrative position yet others that were there for the interview were dressed in sweats and a sweater. They also got the job. They just needed as many order selectors as possible so they really took anyone who could pass a drug test.
