    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Fresh and Easy (Santa Barbara, CA).

    Interview

    simple short fast, They used a cheat sheet or standardized question form that all new hires receive, more questions asked for a simple position and would suit a store manager but it felt robotic and unrehearsed or "canned"

    Interview Questions

    • do you like constant change ?   1 Answer

    Negotiation

    Their way or highway, pay rate "Set in stone" There is no room for negotiating better hours especially working a graveyard shift, It can be a circus. I tried for additional pay and was promised more after a year but when the year came around the promised raise never did

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. I interviewed at Fresh and Easy (Riverside, CA) in August 2010.

    Interview

    Apply online...you can come by in person as well. Schedule interview, same day drug test...get call, email...work.
    Just be really active, and know that although you do need to apply online regardless...you can still be hired before you even submit it. But always start by applying online, if the job is posted. Some managers do not post online, because they do not want to be hounded by calls/visits. So don't be afraid to walk in with resume, dressed well and ask to speak with a hiring manager. I was hired before I could even apply, then they posted it online..then I filled out online application.

    Team Lead Interview

    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Fresh and Easy (Scottsdale, AZ) in February 2009.

    Interview

    More than 20 years retail experience, applied for a position as a part-time Associate to get my foot in the door. Went in for the interview, the guy told me that they had no open positions for management. I said I knew that, that wasn't what I was applying for. He repeated it three more times, I said yes, I know, each time. He asked all the usual 'values' questions everybody seems to use these days, nothing to do with actual experience. Finally he asked about my home life, and I mentioned that I was caregiver for a relative. Suddenly he smiled and said that up to that point, the interview hadn't been going well, but right there, I "opened my heart" to him, and that was apparently what he was looking for. He had a store to place me in, all that was needed was a 24 hour background check. Apparently they misplaced my paperwork, because that was what they told me every couple days for the next six weeks.

    Interview Questions

    • They asked almost nothing about experience or retail. Most difficult question for me was, "What are you most proud of?"   1 Answer

    Negotiation

    No negotiations, they had a standard pay scale and contract for everyone.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Fresh and Easy (Long Beach, CA) in November 2012.

    Interview

    Applied online through indeed.com. I received an email to go to a mass interview session about a month or two later.The first interview is a screening with basic questions like, Who are you? Why do you want to work for us? Tell us about your leadership experience. The second part if you get passed along is with a district manager or some store managers. The scripted interview questions are centered around "sense of urgency", organization, team leadership, and who is your hero. If you pass and are hired you will immediately be sent out for a drug test and sign a release form for the background check. The process takes anywhere from 2-3 weeks. You will get calls at odd hours from the U.K's recruitment center along the process. After your background gets back you will receive an email with the location of your first store/training store.

    Interview Questions
