    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at H E B (Austin, TX) in June 2016.

    Interview

    I applied online around June 14th and after hearing nothing for two weeks, I talked to my friend who was already a checker at that HEB and he said that when he applied, he kind of had to badger them so he suggested I call HEB and ask about my application because it'll show my interest in the job. Sure enough, two hours later, the HEB manager called me back, reviewed my application, asked me a few questions over the phone and then invited me to go to a one-on-one interview three days later. That interview only took about five minutes and and they scheduled me for another one-on-one interview two days later. Still waiting to hear back from them.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ weeks. I interviewed at H E B (San Antonio, TX) in June 2016.

    Interview

    I had a 30 minute interview with HR. It was pretty standard: why HEB? What skills do you have that would match the position? And also clarifying your resume. Then you have an in person interview. Mine was with two partners in a meeting room on site, very relaxed. They seemed confident and knowledgeable.

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at H E B (Houston, TX) in June 2016.

    Interview

    Two step interview. First a group interview and then a one on one with the store director. I was at first very scary. After you finish they will give you a call back to see if you have made it to the 2nd round. Then you meet with the store director and if she likes you then you have a job!

    Interview Questions

    • They asked you to sell this HEB product. It was easy since you were in a group but also odd since HEB is not in retail and a cashier doesn't need to sell anything on a regular basics.   1 Answer

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at H E B (San Antonio, TX).

    Interview

    I applied online and received a phone call shortly after. After basic questions of my job search, salary, and why leaving current company, I was invited to an onsite interview. The first interview was manager interview. The next was with the team. I was asked personal questions about my marital status, whether or not I had kids, and what I did in my free time. The interview closed without any whiteboard questions or even technical questions. Since I wasn't asked any skill type questions but instead questions on my personal life (marital status, family status, caregiving status), I felt as if the interview was unfairly discriminating.

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 5+ weeks. I interviewed at H E B in May 2016.

    Interview

    The hiring manager/ interviewer did not seem qualified. Probing questions were not professional and she seemed disinterested, so why bother interview candidates. She did not seem to be able to recognize and disseminate the information given to her.
