    Very easy and friendly. Current Hiring Manager is a really nice guy who helped me through the process and gave me helpful insight on everything at the store. He has been doing it a long time so he didn't sugar coat or dull anything. Perfect amount of professionalism and courtesy!

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. I interviewed at Giant Food (Lusby, MD) in May 2017.

    Interview

    There was a local hiring event near the Giant store in Lusby that was from 8am to 4pm. Ahead of me were a couple of applicants at the time, and I had to wait for an hour until I was called in. The interview process was about 15-20 minutes, which wasn't too bad. The major problem was that there wasn't enough staff to conduct more interviews for everyone else that had applied to Giant online, including me.
    Previously, I had applied to them multiple times to find employment with them for 3-4 years, called them back multiple times (which felt like pulling teeth out rather than helping you out), and they still refused to attempt to try to help me out. It shouldn't have to take you years to apply for working at Giant. I can understand maybe a couple of days or weeks for new recruitment, but not years. Only one employee was able to help me, but everyone else just didn't seem to want to try at all. I would recommend applying somewhere else other than applying to this Giant to apply instead. This Giant is just awful at helping anyone find work or give any work at all.

    Food Service Clerk Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Gambrills, MD
    Accepted Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 3 days. I interviewed at Giant Food (Gambrills, MD).

    Interview

    Lame. But the managers are very lazy in calling people to get interviews started. Managers once again will ask a part time cashier to set everything up cause dept managers need to go and eat (again). They act like you are running for congress but in truth this company is hurting to hire and keep employees....anyone can get a job.

    Interview Questions

    • What hours can you work. What shifts. Do you like to be screwed in the @$$ with a barbed wire baseball bat. If you are special needs they will ask what your favorite color is.   1 Answer

    Negotiation

    There is no negotiations. They hire at minimum wage

    very easy and laid back, seemed like it was just a formality, as if i already had the job before coming in to the interview. Being nice and presentable is really the key here
