    Team Leader Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Twinsburg, OH
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Giant Eagle (Twinsburg, OH).

    Interview

    I got an email from a recruiter to set up a interview. I went to the interview and it was with another store's 'co manager'. She asked me a ton of your usual interview questions. Unfortunately it was more like a drill session rather then a interview. It didn't feel like a conversation and the woman doing my interview had terrible eye contact. The interview lasted an hour. She told me "she thinks that HR will be in contact with me in the next few days". After a week of not hearing something, I emailed the recruiter. She said they had a few more interviews and we would be in contact.That was 3 weeks ago and still haven't heard anything.

    Cashier Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Boardman, OH

    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Giant Eagle (Boardman, OH) in November 2013.

    Interview

    General interview that's personality and situation based. It's a two-step interview. One with someone from HR then with a store manager. I was offered a job on the spot. It was a negative experience because after being offered the job they were supposed to send an email with a link to verify my personal information. I was sent the email but the link was not included. I tried talking to someone about it but no one could answer the question to help me. It was only days from the time I submitted my application, to being called for the interview, to being offered the job, but it took two months for them to get the email situation straightened out.

    Front End Cashier Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Ravenna, OH
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4 days. I interviewed at Giant Eagle (Ravenna, OH) in March 2013.

    Interview

    Total waste of time. Group interview with 5 other people, have no time to introduce self or talk about past. They make other people introduce you. They ask you to "inventory" candy, which is totally a joke. And then they ask "what would you do if" questions. I thought I did everything great and my personality came through as much as it COULD. and they emailed me next day saying they had gone with someone else. The interview was with recruiters I would never work with and not even at the store i had applied to. awful judge of character. the store manager of where the interview was spent the entire time texting.
