    Interview

    Got a call on Tuesday, but she was off until Friday. I called back on Friday and got an interview time for the following day. I was told to bring my social security card and ID if hired. She was very nice and the interview was short with just a few questions about my past work experience(none in the grocery industry.) I was hired on spot. I had to watch a video about welcome to the company. We went over paperwork and she gave me my shirt and name tag. Then she scheduled me for my first day of training. They're extremely flexible and just want their workers to be happy with their work schedule.

      1) I have many people for this one job, Why should I hire You?
      2) If I asked your previous manager (or teacher for High school students) what was your best asset, what you they tell me?
      3) followed immediately by If I asked this same person what do you need to improve on what would they say...(this answer carried a lot of weight and you would be surprised how they answer....
