    Interview

    The man who interviewed me was WONDERFUL, inculding a woman who joined us later. The interview was actually a good experience. They hired me on the spot. I was excited about the job, but talked to more and more people who worked for King Soopers and said they would not reccomend it. I decided it was not the path I wanted to take/deal with right now.

    Customer Service Interview

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at King Soopers (Fort Collins, CO) in July 2015.

    Interview

    The manager was very disorganized, and she had half the papers for me, and half from a different interview. She had to stop and print the correct paper work for me. She told me that she was running out of time and was going to hurry the interview and rush me on my answers, but still expect me to answer every answer with the best answer I could give, but she often ended up cutting me off of each question. She told me that she only had 25 minutes to do this, and ended up taking over an hour... I was told that she would love to hire me, but she doesn't like that I am a student in college. She said they necessarily don't hate students, but she would always hire a non student over me (a student due to availability issues, even though I was available every day after 12:30pm and some days after 10am). However she said she loved me and wanted to hire me, so she was going to hire me, but just wasn't sure when i can start since i start school in a month. She didn't want me to change my availability and asked if I could change my school schedule around or take different classes so I could work more during the school year. Overall, I finally got hired, but I am not taking the position due to the fact of how I felt during the interview. I was actually very surprised at how difficult some questions were, but was able to answer them all, and she commented on how great I answered these questions.

    Courtesy Clerk Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Denver, CO
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 5 days. I interviewed at King Soopers (Denver, CO) in May 2015.

    Interview

    Group interview format with a few HR people and 8 other store applicants in a conference room. I applied online, but hiring is handled by store level HR people. The corporate call center scheduled my interview and didn't give me much information about the interview format. A Group Interview is VASTLY different than a traditional panel or one-on-one interview. I spent two hours at the store. They made us wait in the break room and reviewed how we interacted. Then they spent 30 to 45 minutes total DURING the interview discussing us between group interview questions. They HR people were observing how we handled downtime, how we interacted, and if we got stressed out by waiting around being judged, or even if someone took a potty break or got water. In 20 years of working since high school, I've never had an interview format quite like this. I felt the call center should've explained the group interview format. People were judged as a group, how they handled stress, and who was more bubbly or outspoken. Many people hadn't worked in a long time, or were in high school or college, or going through a career transition. This was the interview format for a $9 an hour job.

    Interview Questions

    • GROUP INTERVIEW with several other store applicants. All questions were answered in front of 10 other people.

      Round 1: Group Introduction
      We had to fill out an applicant card with name, position applying, availability, and general questions about self and experience. We had to introduce ourselves to the group.
      Pick one word to describe yourself. Then HR exited room to discuss candidates while we waited, round 1. Then HR discussed us while we waited and observed how we interacted as a group.

      Round 2: Product Commercial
      What do you know about the store or brand. What is your favorite product. This became a mock commercial performed in front of a group of 10 people selling a store brand or feature.
      Then HR exited room to discuss candidates while we waited, round 2. Then HR discussed us while we waited and observed how we interacted as a group. Many nervous people mentioned personal information you shouldn't mention in an interview, such as marital status, disability status, if a parent or not, financial status, education level. These are facts that shouldn't be mentioned in a group interview! People let this information slip because they were nervous or not very experienced with interviews. I feel this only served as a way for HR to weed people out. Several of us in the group were going through a career change. They later told me I didn't have the desired experience, which is bunk because I've worked several stressful sales, customer service, and retail jobs.

      Round 3: Group Questions with numbered cards.
      How do you handle change?
      Tell me about a bad customer service experience.
      Tell me about a time you handled conflict with a co-worker.
      What is your experience related to the position you're applying for.
      Then HR exited room to discuss candidates while we waited, round 3. Then HR discussed us while we waited and observed how we interacted as a group.

      Round 4: Applicants are divided individually this time and paired directly with an HR person to discuss desired position, availability, and an private matters. The HR person asked if there's anything else they need to know. What does that even mean? I was asked did I like the interview process or not? I felt like my head was being messed with the entire interview process.
