    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 5 days. I interviewed at Mariano's (Chicago, IL) in February 2017.

    Interview

    The interview process is pretty standard. They ask what your strengths and weaknesses are and why you'd like to work at Mariano's. It isn't hard to be hired. You sit at a table in the store and talk through the interview. The questions asked in the interview are almost exactly the same to the questions asked on the online application.

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Mariano's (Buffalo Grove, IL) in January 2017.

    The HR rep. Intervieweied you in a very casual setting, usually in the store cafe, so you didn't have the pressure of a closed environment, questions were usually very basic, and as confidently you answered them the better, you usually have to go through 2 interviews, first with the HR rep and if that goes well you get scheduled for second interview with the store director, both not longer than 5 minutes.

    It was very quick. I wasn't unprepared but the interviewer was rushing the interview. I tried to be brief and detailed with my answers and even then, he was speeding through it. I was the only one there at the time yet he treated it like it was a packed Open Interview.

    Manager Trainee Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Chicago, IL
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through other source. I interviewed at Mariano's (Chicago, IL) in November 2016.

    Interview

    I attended a pre-announced Job Fair Event for Management Trainees. The event was all day at a hotel. I arrived when it began in the morning. The entire area was overflowing with candidates. They had to bring in rows of chairs from an adjacent ballroom in order to provide adequate seating. I arrived when it began in the morning. I submitted my resume and was told to have a seat. Over 8 hours later I received only a brief interview with less than 10 questions asked. Clearly; they did not anticipate the popularity of this event and did not have enough seasoned managers present to conduct appropriate interviews. Every time I glanced at the table where I had presented my resume; all I saw was "deer in headlights" expressions on the faces of Marianos representatives. Very disappointing result for an investment of a day's time.
