    IB Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Hopkins, MN

    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 5 weeks. I interviewed at SUPERVALU (Hopkins, MN) in February 2015.

    Interview

    Situational behavior interviewing, explain an example of a time "blank" happened. Interviewed with Senior Merchandisers mostly. Did two rounds of group interview, 4 people and then 4 people. Started out pretty formal and then by end we got more casual and relaxed conversation. Rescheduling is almost impossible as getting about 8 or so busy employees schedules together is difficult. Try to not have to change date/time.

    Lead Merchandiser Interview

    Neutral Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at SUPERVALU (Mechanicsville, VA) in July 2014.

    Interview

    There is a definite favoritism shown within the interview process - it is almost as if they have chosen the replacement associate prior to the interviews beginning. There are multiple interview involved in the process and one of mine actually had four members interviewing at the same time.

    Interview Questions

    • All interviews are Situation/Behavior/Outcome   1 Answer

    Buyer I Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at SUPERVALU in May 2014.

    Interview

    I applied online and then had a quick phone interview with a low-level HR rep. She then set up an interview with a couple other buyers. They asked 4 behavioral based questions and then that was it. They had me come back for another round, this time with 4 people. I'm guessing SuperValu requires them to attend the interview because they just read the questions off a sheet of paper and it is clear that they have no interest in being there.

    All in all, they seemed like a decent company to work for. I had a few other offers on the table so it was my fault for not preparing properly. The people I interviewed with just didn't seem too excited about their jobs and the job itself didn't seem too challenging.

    Interview Questions

    • They will ask you about a time you had given someone bad information.   Answer Question

    Interview

    Got through the entire interview before they offered me a different position than what I applied for. I reluctantly accepted and did a mouth swab, then they told me they'd call me to let me know when they wanted me to work. Never called me and I missed my first day.
