    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at New Seasons Market (Tualatin, OR) in July 2017.

    Interview

    It was a first round, group interview with six candidates. We met at the seating area then after a brief tour of the store, had the interview in a conference room. The person conducting the interview was the assistant HR manager, and the head of the produce department was there as well to take notes while HR went through a slideshow of 5 questions. We each answered all the questions based on whoever volunteered first. Then we all got the opportunity to ask questions. The whole process took about two hours.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 5 days. I interviewed at New Seasons Market (Portland, OR) in September 2014.

    Interview

    A joke. When I interviewed for this job I literally sat down with the managers and they pretty much just gave me the job. They seemed desperately in need. Which was a little bit of a turn off for me. I didn't want to walk into a messed up department where I was the only one willing to fix it. The manager didnt seem like he cared much.
