    Easy Interview

    Application

    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!!!

    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
