    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Giant Food Stores in April 2017.

    Interview

    I applied on March 24th. I called about a week later and was told that although they were hiring, they were hiring for more positions in a couple weeks. She wrote down my name and number. A couple weeks passed and still no call, so I called again and was told they were going to start looking at applications early the next week. Early that next week came, and nothing. I had all but given up, but last Thursday afternoon, I got a call for an interview on Saturday morning.

    The interview itself was interesting. At first I was a little intimidated because it was the store manager, the HR lady, and the produce manager. But, once we all got talking, it was a really good experience. We all kept making each other laugh. I left, confident that I had gotten the job.

    I got the call saying I got the job a couple days ago. I have orientation today.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Giant Food Stores (Hellertown, PA) in February 2017.

    Interview

    Two interviews required but you always end up getting the job as long as you pass the background check you should be just fine. GED or high school diploma preferred but not required. You need to bring in your social security card and your drivers license or state ID as well. Dress nice and professional just in case. Try to talk to the interviewer just general chat while you wait it allows them to know you are a social person. Be prepared to need a large alcoholic beverage after work some days though... It is very stressful some days but customers who are polite make days better.

    Interview Questions

    • They ask every question that is on the application and if certain things need it they ask you to provide more details   Answer Question

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at Giant Food Stores.

    Interview

    Was called for an interview the day after completing the weird application, where all questions related to drug use and stealing. As if I'm really going to tell Giant how much crack I smoke while I'm at work. When I went in for the interview, I was directed into a pile of 90 other applicants there for interviews that day as well. Apparently they were having a mass hiring event and would most likely have to wait an hour to have my turn to be interview. Walked out.

    Interview Questions

    • Do you smoke CRACK, MARIJUANA, OR DO ALCOHOL WHILE AT WORK?   Answer Question
