    I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Ben E. Keith.

    Interview

    They set you up with a tour. Then 3 to 4 mangers interview you at once at a long table . You get 2 papers to keep and review. One is insurance benefits. The other one is pay rate and description of position. If your applying for the food department make sure to take a jacket or sweater for the cold and freezer department. Plus dress for the position. If warehouse make sure to wear steal toe boots and nice slacks. Look comfortable and not nervous. Make sure if they ask the group who has experience? Raise your hand. If they ask what kind of experience? Tell them but make sure you do know what you're talking about. The people there, most have been there for more than 15 years. So don't even try to bs them. They will be able to tell. Also be prepared for a equipment test. Like for an electric pallet jack or forklift. Also be open to whatever position just to get your foot in the door. They move you around and promote within. Good luck. I went for my drug test and physical. Hoping to start very soon.

    You fill out an online application. I would recommend trying to get in touch with someone to let them know you've applied so your application doesn't get lost in the mix. Once someone contacts you, you'll set up an interview time. If the interview goes well, you'll be scheduled for a drug screening and physical. Once hired orientation is held at your hiring branch's location and usually lasts 3-5 days.
