Easy Interview

Application

I applied online. I interviewed at Natural Grocers by Vitamin Cottage (Aurora, CO) in September 2015.

Interview

Filled out application online, received call the next week, interviewed with 3 management people. They were very encouraging, telling me that the fact I wasn't hugely experienced in cashiering was not a problem, it was something I could learn. They were nice and encouraging.

    I applied online. I interviewed at Natural Grocers by Vitamin Cottage.

    Interview

    I applied online and was contacted by email a few weeks later for an interview. I interviewed with the store manager and assistant manager. I was asked about my previous experience, why I wanted to work there, what I knew about the company, and some fact based questions about natural food. There were a few situational questions, so you should have some anecdotes from work or school prepared. I was pretty nervous and thought I had given a couple lame answers but two days later I got a call back offering me a position.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at Natural Grocers by Vitamin Cottage.

    Interview

    I applied online and was contacted for an interview about three days later. I met with the store manager, regional manager, and an HR recruiter. We discussed my employment experience and why I was seeking employment with them. It definitely helped that I had plenty of experience in grocery retail. They explained more about the position, benefits, employee discount, etc. It ended on a good note and the store manager told me they would contact me the following week with their decision. Exactly one week later they called and offered me a position.

    Interview Questions

    • The questions weren't difficult at all. They mainly asked about my experiences with previous employers. They are also very serious about customer service, so expect many questions about that if you are interviewing for this position. For example, what does great customer service mean to you?   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    There was no negotiation. They offered me a lot more than I was making at my other job with the potential for a raise after only a few months of employment, so I definitely did not complain.

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Natural Grocers by Vitamin Cottage (Austin, TX) in October 2011.

    Interview

    I think the kind of interview you'll get with these folks is mostly based on who's doing the interview. The company is a bit of a mess, in my opinion.

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at Natural Grocers by Vitamin Cottage (Denton, TX) in February 2014.

    Interview

    One interview with Manager/Asst and you're hired, you go in for a first interview and sit down. It's really casual. Make sure to mention World Class Customer Service, that's the big thing they look for. Be chipper and overly happy.

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Natural Grocers by Vitamin Cottage.

    Interview

    There was not one. I can't say anything when nothing happened but have to say something here so this will let this be submitted. It's a very fly-by-the-seat-of-the-pants place. No interview, just put in wherever you are needed no matter what the qualifications are. Seems like people are already pre-chosen for whatever it is that the management wants.

    Negotiation

    there was none of that
