    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at SUPERVALU (Stockton, CA) in August 2017.

    Interview

    The recruiter was friendly and made me felt comfortable even if we were just interviewing over the phone. The recruiter was very informative and answers all my questions honestly, allowing me to have a better visual of how it would be like to work there. The recruiter was upfront about my background and skills after the interview questions; sharing what her concerns were because of my current work population size.

    General Manager Interview

    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at SUPERVALU (Pittsburgh, PA) in July 2017.

    Interview

    This was the most bizarre process I experienced. There was no contact after the initial phone interview for 12 days. I then received an email, the day before a holiday, being asked if I could travel to the DC a couple days later to meet with the 'interview committee'. I wasn't able to break free that quickly and traveled the following week. The interview committee was comprised solely of the Interim GM.

    After the usual small talk, he asked for my presentation. I didn't have one since I wasn't asked to create a presentation. The next several questions were the most off-the-wall things I've been asked. It could have been to simply throw me off-balance. The craziest one is listed below. It's a simple algebra question with wordplay to be misleading.

    I knew within the first 15 minutes it wasn't going to be a good match for me.

    I had a phone interview. I had to email her because I did not hear from her 30 min after our set interview time. She said to be honest that they may not call me because my previous employer wasn't a union.

    The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at SUPERVALU.

    Interview

    I have just had a phone interview and they as simple questions nothing to extensive. I would recommend to have your resume in front of you before they call. They essentially just went over what you put in your resume.

    Warehouse Supervisor Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Melrose Park, IL

    Neutral Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at SUPERVALU (Melrose Park, IL) in February 2017.

    Interview

    Got called for an initial interview with the HR Manager and Plant Manager. It lasted a little over an hour and went really well. They called me back right away for a second interview. I went and interviewed with the two building managers and it took about 45 min. They were pretty dull and read off of a sheet of paper with basic interview questions. I haven't heard anything in a week so I'm guessing I didn't get the job.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ weeks. I interviewed at SUPERVALU (New Stanton, PA) in July 2016.

    Interview

    Interview process was too long. Contact was made via email and said "congratulations you have been selected to interview at SuperValu" like I had won a prize. Change interview times due to managers having conflicting schedules. The HR manager never showed up for the interview.

    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 3+ weeks. I interviewed at SUPERVALU.

    Interview

    2 interviews with 2 people each time they ask you questions from a predefined list. The questions really have nothing to do with the job they are all situation behavior based questions. Some questions they ask use the wrong terminology so you kind of have to guess what they are asking as some of the people haven't been to college and don't know the correct terms. Overall Easy interviews.
