    Overnight Stocker Interview

    Negative Experience

    Interview

    I was called for an interview within a couple hours of turning the application in online. I had a phone interview and then was scheduled to have an interview in person. When I got there the manager had no idea what position I was there for. When I stated the position, I was told they didn't have that position open.....Uh, why am I here then? So then I was told she could make another one if that's really the one I wanted, then proceeded to inform me the overnight position I applied for and was interviewing for was from 10-630, however in their particular store the overnight stockers never get off on time. I would be working until more like 1030-11 am if not later. First oft, I was told I was being interviewed for part time, that all king soopers positions start off as part time. Second, I put my availability on the app, what the hell did you call me for? I don't mind working full time, but 12-15 hours overnight for 10.50 an hour? Ha. Funny. This company completely wasted mine and their time. I have never seen such disorganization from a management team.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at King Soopers (Westminster, CO) in May 2016.

    Interview

    Applied online on friday and got a call on Monday, made an interview for a few days later.

    The people were very nice but honestly the interview was a joke, they asked me about 4 questions since i didn't have previous work experience. They started by telling me several positions available then asked a few ?s. I don't remember the questions word for word but they asked about what i thought about communication and work ethic and availability. Was my first interview so i was nervous and ended up giving short, crappy answers but by the end of the interview they asked me what position i think i would like and gave it to me. It was almost pointless to have an interview, they didn't even ask me who i am as a person or what i value etc. I know it was a simple entry level position but this interview showed they could have easily hired some horrible person for all they know. or they must have just been desperate for people.

    I had prepared a ton of potential questions they might ask and they ended up not saying any of them so that was a waste.

    After i was hired i trained/finished paperwork for 3 days(longest was 8 hour training others were only a few hours) and started my first day on the 4th day.

    Customer Service Interview

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at King Soopers (Denver, CO) in April 2016.

    Interview

    I applied at location #1 first, waited a week and called for a follow up and they kept transferring me to different people who kept transferring me to a neverending loop. Gave up at that location and applied at location #2 and was called for an interview right away.

    When I got there, the customer service desk didnt even know I had an interview today and had to ask if i was in the schedule.

    The interviewer was 20 minutes late and had a scruffy appearance, knowing that they wanted me to arrive 15 minutes early and to wear business casual wear. They took me into the back room and into their office that was automatically locked from the outside (but why? For privacy?) i know this because somebody knocked on the office door and the interviewer said "come in!" but then told me it was locked as they opened the door for the person knocking.

    The interviewer kept taking calls and delayed my interview even more, they just seemed so unorganized and unprofessional unlike what their website claims their employees to be. Regardless, we filled out the interview paperwork and he said it was a "preliminary" interview and that I would be called for a second interview. I got called the next day by a familiar voice, the person that kept transferring me at location #1. They said they were hiring a new secretary and they will call me for a second interview by today. ive gotten no calls from said secretary at king soopers, the night has already fallen and still no call.

    Nevertheless, the interviewer really liked me and suggested me to management as a member of their team. I blame the faulty administrators for the complicated and frustrating hiring process. It is very confusing and if I get called for a second interview, I will most definitely decline due to their crumbling management. They can't even handle the hiring process in a professional and organized manner, imagine how they handle their employees once they're in.
