    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. I interviewed at Giant Food Stores.

    Interview

    It's pretty much a, "describe a time when..." kind of interview. You can find a lot of questions they use in the reviews. They basically want you to describe a situation where you had to take an initiative, how you handled it, and what you learned. Prettt straight forward.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 days. I interviewed at Giant Food Stores (Bethesda, MD).

    Interview

    Very easy interview process. Mostly ask simple questions such as why are you applying to this job, previous experience, and availability. I don't think they ask any difficult questions, anybody who can do manual labor and speak English or Spanish can get the job. The work is very low-skill and repetitive so I would only recommend this job to high-school students.

    Interview Questions

    • Asked me about why I looked angry in my DL picture. Probably because I had to wait at the MVA for 5 hours to get it...   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    No negotiation, take or leave the base pay, slightly higher for stock clerks that for cashiers.

Bringing in a resume will help you stand out, no matter what kind of experience you have or don't have.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at Giant Food Stores (Carlisle, PA) in September 2018.

    Interview

    Applied on LinkedIn. Was contacted via e-mail within one week by job poster. Phone interview was conducted shortly thereafter. Recruiter was full of praise for my fit with the company. She said they had a few more phone interviews to conduct that same day and would be in touch one way or another the following week. She went out of her way to assure me i would be notified if I was moving on or not within the week, citing company culture. I sent a "thank you e-mail" as I customarily do. No further response from the company. I sent a follow-up email three weeks later inquiring about the status of the process with no response. Common courtesy would have been nice.
