    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Food City (New York, NY).

    Easy interview, just talk about the job and then they give you a shirt and you start. They give you a tour of the store and a rundown on the things that you have to do and where everything is at.

    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Food City (Gatlinburg, TN) in January 2017.

    Interview

    I applied online on their official website and followed up with a phone call three days later. They invited me in for an interview the next day. The interview was pretty straightforward - I spoke with the Hiring Manager and Head Cashier. They asked me the standard cashier questions, gave me a cotton swab drug test, and told me they would get back to me. The following Monday they called and asked when I could start.

    Part Time Cashier Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Phoenix, AZ
    Accepted Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took a week. I interviewed at Food City (Phoenix, AZ) in October 2016.

    Interview

    The main thing I thought you should know is that there is a drug test. They swab your mouth. Also should you be hired they do have (unpaid) training before you start working there. But it's not too bad. This store I think is only local but none the less they seem to have no teal policies about the training. It has been paid and sometimes it is not.

    Interview Questions

    • If I had any prior experience with them or Basha's (since they are affiliates).   1 Answer

    I applied online. I interviewed at Food City (Cleveland, TN) in August 2016.

    Interview

    The interview wasn't really an interview. It was mostly confirming my availability and what I put on the application. The manager was professional in demeanor but not in actions. A job was unofficially offered on the spot, and confirmed later that day by phone call.
