    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. I interviewed at Giant Eagle (Pittsburgh, PA) in May 2016.

    Interview

    Asked questions during one of their "hiring events". They send you something via email and you fill out the papers online before you go to the event. Then you go, talk to one of the interviewers and they do or do not offer you a job right then and there. Then you get a start date and the first day, you spend in front of a lap top taking the training.
