    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.
