    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    The process took 5 days. I interviewed at SUPERVALU (Minneapolis, MN) in October 2009.

    Interview

    Communication initiated by company through email. A phone interview was arranged over the course of 4-5 emails. There was significant confusion. Before phone interview, in-person interview was arranged at career fair. Phone interview consisted of a few housekeeping questions circulating around ability to work in US and the job being interviewed for. Phone interview was abrupt and somewhat awkward. In-person interview with brand manager was mostly behavioral questions and was extremely pleasant.

Afterward if they do not ask you to stay, you did not get the job.

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at SUPERVALU (Mountmellick (Ireland)) in June 2015.

    Interview

    My interview was quite fun actually. It was really fun and I had a great laugh with two managers that were interviewing me. Instead of your typical questions about what you can offer the company I was told what they could offer me. I told them I have two children and they outlined that they would try their best to accommodate my family life, which they have most certainly stuck to.
