    Overnight Stocker Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Gaithersburg, MD
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Harris Teeter (Gaithersburg, MD) in August 2017.

    Interview

    I had a 5-minute interview over the phone and was invited to participate in an in-person interview scheduled for two days later. It the in-person interview I was ask many behavioral questions to which I thought I answered well. The manage that interviewed me told me to stick around and speak to another manager. That's when it all went down hill. The manager came and called my name, said his name and then said, "tell me about yourself". There was to preface to the question and I must say I was caught off guard by his coldness. I told them I could work 5 out of 7 days overnight (with the caveat that I could be flexible). He hardly looked at me and just said, "oh you can't work two days"... I was quite put off. I've been a recruiter and have never treated an interviewee like this. Thinking that the job was promising after my first interview, he continued to explain, "we have a lot of applicants, well give you a call". This has been the worst interview I ever had. I was quite disappointed because I felt as if he had no type of interview skills and was looking for a way not to hiring me. I plan on making a compliant because I did feel disrespected. Though things happen for a reason so I am glad that I do not have to work in a store with this guy as the manager.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Harris Teeter (Arlington, VA) in December 2016.

    Interview

    I applied online, and I think a week later I got a call for an interview. I actually applied to 2 stores and interviewed at the second store 2 days after. I found out later that this is a no-no at Harris Teeter. You can only work at one store at a time and once you get an offer for one store, you cant accept a second offer, even if you reject the first, or some nonsense, which is too bad because the second store saw my experience and potential and offered me 75cents per hour more. A good bump.

    Anyway, I first got a phone call to set up an interview time and they asked some questions, like a mini interview. No big deal there.
    At the interview I was asked the usual questions, but its been awhile, I cant remember them. Its a low level job so you shouldnt have any problems. They hire all kinds of people, even those that can barely do the job.

    Though I originally applied for 1 position, but they asked me to apply online to another position that they wanted me to work on. So after the interview I did, and I got an offer I believe 3 days later.
    Once I accepted the offer, you have the dreaded wait while they do a background check. I wasnt worried about it, just irritated that it takes 2 weeks and you feel like you cant do anything else and your life is on hold for 2 weeks work-wise.

    Once the background check was completed, they called me and asked me when I can start.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at Harris Teeter (Bowie, MD) in July 2016.

    Interview

    I waited in a hotel lobby for my interview no more than five minutes. I was brought into a room with multiple interviews going on and it was just my luck my interview was at the same table as another. the women who intervsiewed me did not acknowledge me for about five minutes as she was talking to the other interviewer and interviewee. When she finally acknowledged me she looked over my application and says oh we already filled that position (as if she wasn't going to interview me) I proceeded to ask her what other positions were open and she replies all of them. I ask her about the cashier position she says we have enough of those, so i asked her again what is open. overall she did not pay me any attention and I felt like I waisted my time.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Harris Teeter (Bowie, MD) in July 2016.

    Interview

    Very professional setting. I arrived 15 minutes early and signed in. I was told that there was an interviewer who was free right now and could take me even though I was scheduled for a later time. The interview room was filled with about 20 managers/assistant managers from different stores. After talking to him, he said I would be a good fit and talked about getting me hired on the spot. He then told me to wait as he went to get the manager from the store I wanted to work at. After speaking with the manager at the store I was applying to, he offered me a job in the produce department. I accepted and I will be starting once the new store opens.

    Bakery/Deli Clerk Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Gaithersburg, MD

    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at Harris Teeter (Gaithersburg, MD) in June 2016.

    Interview

    I interviewed for a new store opening, so there were a lot of one-on-one interviews occurring in the same room.

    The interviewer that I was lucky enough to speak with was exceedingly unprofessional. Two words into the first question and his eyes are darting around the room, painfully disinterested. I could tell the interview wasn't going to go anywhere from the moment I sat down. Perhaps I didn't pass an initial visual inspection despite the fact that I was the only interviewee there who actually dressed business casual.

    I've interviewed people before. I know that even if you know right away that you're not going to hire them, you should at least possess the good graces to feign interest in what they're saying.
