    Cashier Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Lawrence, MA
    Declined Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. I interviewed at Market Basket (Lawrence, MA).

    Interview

    I went in for 2 interviews. The first one went fine and smoothly. When I went in for the second one I brought my permit. They told me to return the next day after 11. When I showed up they did not have any plan to talk to me simply told me to return @2 for one of the managers. When i returned at 2 there were no managers to be found because they were on lunch. Office told me to return in 30 minutes. I returned and the manager told me to wait 15 minutes for one of them to return. 15 minutes turned into 45 minutes. When I went to tell them i needed to go the manager showed up spoke to me and told me no interview would be conducted without appointment and he simply wanted to see what forms of ID I had. I think this management needs to be fixed because they were all over the place and making me return back and forth to simply be swept under the rug. They do not know how to handle incoming employees. Definitely glad I won’t be working here. Terrible.

    Long dull boring the test batch questions for the personality traits are repetitive as to trip you up.

My original boss that hired me was great .my last ending boss actually told me I didn't hire you to think.

    If you have the interview you have the job, the questions had no effect on my hiring. It almost seemed as though they really didn't care about my answers, just held an interview out of formality.
