    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Grocery Outlet (Berkeley, CA) in April 2012.

    Interview

    The entire process was pretty long. Got email request to do a video interview. It consisted of 6 questions all to be answered in two minutes. You see the clock counting down as your answering. Pretty nerve wracking! Then contacted a week later for a short chat w/hiring manager and his/her manager. It lasted about an hour total. Then asked to fill out like a personality online questionairre then fill out a five or so page employment application. Then after that a 6 person panel style interview. Felt like I was applying to the CIA or something.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Grocery Outlet (Emeryville, CA) in October 2016.

    Interview

    I applied online and was asked to do a video interview with prerecorded questions. It's a little impersonal but just do it because I found out later that most applicants didn't even bother finishing and the ones that did were put right at the top of the list. After a week and a half they contacted me to schedule an on site interview.

    What to expect:
    -1 Hour interview with Director for the team that you're applying for
    -30 min interview with Buyer(s) who you will be working with directly
    -30 min interview with Director of another team

    They have valet parking for visitors which is great. They'll offer you water when you check in at the front desk but don't drink it or else you'll need to use the restroom by your third interview. Their interview styles varied where some would try to get you off your script so they can see how you react while others were more willing to shoot the breeze. After a couple of days they called me with an offer.

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2+ weeks. I interviewed at Grocery Outlet (Emeryville, CA) in October 2016.

    Interview

    I first completed a video interview, followed by a phone interview with behavioral questions. I then was asked to come onsite for any interview. I spoke with two different buying directors, 3 buyers, and 1 assistant buyer. Questions were relevant and reasonable. I felt the group I spoke to was diverse and appropriate for the position at hand. I was given several breaks, offered beverages and snacks, and given a tour of the office.
