    The interview process was very straightforward. The store manager asked basic questions regarding customer service, how I would deal with different scenarios, questions about my ability and willingness to perform different job duties, went over my work history, and asked pertinent questions.

    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at Jacksons Food Stores (Kuna, ID) in December 2015.

    Interview

    I interviewed online with some brief questions and my resume. I was called shortly after, just 2 days later, at which point in time we arranged an interview a few days later. I went and was asked some easy questions about previous job performance and got the job. Few days later I went to job training which lasted for 3 days, about 7 hours; where we learned the basics of working for Jackson's and got some practice working a cash register and speaking with customers. We then were given a website to study how to handle food safely and had to pass a quick online test with unlimited retries. After passing it and finishing training, I started my first day a few days later. Over the next 2 weeks, I was taken by various members of management and my team step-by-step to learn how to do my job.

    Interview Questions

    • Tell me about a time where you had a lot of tasks to complete by a short deadline. How did you cope?   1 Answer

    Negotiation

    100% of such basic, low-credential needing hourly jobs can not be positively negotiated concerning pay (at least from my experience. Kudos to you if you've done it before).

    Store Manager Interview

    Declined Offer
    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2+ weeks. I interviewed at Jacksons Food Stores in February 2012.

    Interview

    Not thorough enough; sucked. A bit disorganized and disjointed throughout the process. Unimpressed with the interviewer's skills as it seemed like she did not really know what she was doing and did not have any other managerial experience apart from Jacksons

    Reasons for Declining

    Pay was way too low.
