    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at K-VA-T Food Stores (Athens, TN) in September 2017.

    Interview

    I applied online, within 1 week I was contacted over the phone. And interview was set up for 8 days later. Upon interview date, I sat down in 4 different chairs. The first interviewer was very friendly and cordial. The second interview was a team between an HR rep and the Assistant manager of the store. Very informative. The third interview was with the store manager, where the offer was given and received. After a brief few minutes later and drug test, I was done. All in all, the entire interview process lasted approximately 30 minutes

    Web Developer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Johnson City, TN
    No Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at K-VA-T Food Stores (Johnson City, TN) in April 2015.

    Interview

    Only one phone interview and it was just basically standard stuff. Heard nothing back from them afterwards but that's so common it's almost laughable. And here are some more words so it will stop talking about the 50 word minimum not sure how it keeps asking for more but well here it is. Blah blah yakity smackity

    Cake Decorator/Deli Helper/Floral Helper Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Knoxville, TN
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at K-VA-T Food Stores (Knoxville, TN).

    Interview

    When I interviewed I put in an application and was contacted by phone. There was no phone interview, simply scheduling for the initial interview with HR and whoever will be your Dept. Manager/Assistant Manager. I only had one interview and was hired, but now the company requires the first interview mentioned previously along with an interview with the store manager.

    Interview Questions

    Negotiation

    It was my first job so I was just happy to have it, but no, there's generally no negotiation. You put your availability on your application and HR calls applicants based on that. You might get hired in at a higher price point for experience, or rarely you might get hired in at full time, but for the most part, you are hired in at a flat beginning rate and you must make your way up. NOTE: Bakery/Deli and Meat Dept. get higher hourly wages automatically, but applicant must be 18 to work in either dept.

    Pharmacy Technician Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Blountville, TN
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at K-VA-T Food Stores (Blountville, TN) in November 2011.

    Interview

    After I submitted my application, I received a phone call from the Pharmacist in Charge. He and I exchanged a conversation over the phone, after which he invited me to interview for the position. My interview was scheduled in a timely manner (within three days), and the PIC was ready when I arrived. The interview took about 45 minutes, and was extremely detailed. Afterwards, he thanked me for my time and said he would be in touch. While I heard from the PIC rather quickly regarding my offer, since the pharmacy is part of a grocery store chain, the management within the store took awhile. I had to come in for a drug test, as well as in-store training on the computer (which was unscheduled and very confusing).

    Interview Questions

    • The most unexpected question I was asked was who was my hero, and it couldn't be a family member. I didn't see what that had to with pharmacy work, but I'm sure that it helped the PIC make his decision.   Answer Question
