    It was an interview with the manager. He asked to talk about my work history. Then he went on to asking about my work life and school life balance and if I am able to handle it.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Safeway (Saratoga, CA) in July 2014.

    Interview

    The interview was very low key. Typical questions. Scenario questions (which were very weird in my opinion). They called me 3 weeks after the interview and made an appointment for another interview. The interview was exactly the same. Same stupid scenario questions. I got hired a week later.

    Interview Questions

    • "If someone bought a cake, what are some things that you would recommend them to buy?"
      I had NO idea what they meant. The only thing I could think about was how the question made no sense to me. Literally a 30 second pause of me filling the silence with "hmm" and "um". Very embarrassing. They had to tell me the answer.   1 Answer

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at Safeway.

    Interview

    It was a pretty straightforward process. I submitted a written application, and was called for an interview, about two weeks later. I met with two managers; 15 minutes of back and forth. They said they'd be in contact, soon. I was called in for a second interview about a week later, with one more evening manager.

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Safeway (Colville, WA) in June 2013.

    Interview

    They lost my application for a month, then there was basically no interview. They just jumped in and assumed that I was accepting the job that they had not technically offered me yet.

    Negotiation

    Convincing me that everyone disliked the union, but it was a necessary evil.

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Safeway (Guerneville, CA) in March 2013.

    Interview

    Quick and breif. I was 15 minutes late. It was due to my poop dog who is really old and takes up my time sometimes. I'm retired and don't really need to work, I've owned 2 of my own business's and if I had an interviewee come to their interview late that would have given me pause or at least ideas ask Why! Well, not my interview, wasn't even mentioned until I was told I was hired right there on the Spot. I mentioned it because I was surprised I was hired especially being late. U was told "No big deal"
