    Interview

    Applied online, got a call setting up an interview literally 1 hour later. Interview was easy, basic questions about availability and your past experience with customer service.

    Night Time Stock Clerk (Part-time) Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Pickerington, OH
    No Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Giant Eagle (Pickerington, OH) in December 2015.

    Interview

    I applied online and was called early the next morning. The interviewer only asked a few questions and told me the base pay was $8.50 but she said their would be an increase of a few cents because of the shift. She ended the call without telling me whether or not there would be another interview or if there was a next step toward employment. I found out later that day through an e-mail that I did not receive the position. This was unfortunate because I was unable to receive any feed back as to how I could improve upon my chances of gaining future employment. I would rather have been told over the phone or had an in person interview than to just be sent a blanket statement that I was not hired. However, the interview was simple and didn't take long.

    Pharmacy Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Columbus, OH
    No Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at Giant Eagle (Columbus, OH) in July 2015.

    Interview

    1) Phone Interview with general questions
    2) One on one interview with the pharmacy manager with some of the same questions

    Honestly, these interviews felt like a waste of my time. I was expecting them to be pharmacy based but they were super generalized. The questions were easy to answer since they are the typical retail/service industry questions.

    Iwas not offered a job because I did not have an open enough availability during the school year. The recruiter from the initial phone interview told me there was a 12 hour a month minimum (which I could definitely manage) but then the pharmacy manager told me he was looking for someone to work 4 days a week year round (which is next-to-impossible during the school year for me).

    Interview Questions

    • Describe a time where the exceeded your own expectations.
      Describe a time where you had to deliver bad news.
      Describe a time where you were able to come up with a creative solution to something.
      Describe a time where you had to deal with a difficult customer (person)

    Interview

    Called me, I came into the store. The regular manager wasn't there so the AM interviewed me. She asked me about my transportation and stuff, asked me to play out some scenarios (which were out of this world) and then gave me the job. They didn't have any of my papers (I guess they lost those) and they were just disheveled the whole time.
