    Supervisor Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Pittsburgh, PA
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Giant Eagle (Pittsburgh, PA) in June 2017.

    Interview

    I applied online since I have a decade of retail/customer service experience. On the phone interview, the recruiter said that I would be overqualified for the job and that he will send me additional positions in my area. He did not follow up and dodged my calls/voice mails. I ended up taking an offer at a rival company because they gave me the respect I deserve.

    Interview Questions

    • Just general questions about what would I do in the case of this obscure situation that will most likely never happen .   Answer Question

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at Giant Eagle (Castle Shannon, PA).

    Interview

    Initial phone screening, then interview with a store leader and HR coordinator. The interview took about an hour, but the conversation afterwards lasted about another half hour. Always use a positive tone and appropriate verbiage. If you sound good and look good, you're in.

    Interview Questions

    • Situational questions. I had an advantage because I work for the company already and knew what to expect.   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    Initial offer was low, made a much higher counter offer and they accepted within 24 hours. Word to the wise: NEVER take what they offer you. The company is in a cost cutting phase and loves to underpay. They need you if you're competent.

    I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Giant Eagle (Wexford, PA) in February 2017.

    Interview

    Applied online before coming to the store. Walked in during open interviews. Spoke with a recruiter (pre-screening, availability questions). Then had a 30-minute interview/discussion with an HR manager. HR manager set up a final interview with a team leader (my current boss) the same day. Final interview questions were easy. From walking into the store to leaving with the job took about 3 hours total.

The demonstration room is crowded and there aren't enough seats available for everyone. You have a customer in your face asking you about a product that you're not sure about. You also missed breakfast and are very hungry. How do you handle the situation?"   1 Answer

    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.
