I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Safeway.

Interview

One on one, sitting in the Starbucks seating area. It was very laid back, I came in early so I sat for a little bit. She asked me a few questions, and it seemed like she already had her mind made up.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Safeway in September 2017.

    Interview

    I went in and my interviewer seemed very uninterested in my presence and like I was wasting my time. I'm honestly very qualified for the position even though I have no true work experience because of my volunteer experience and professional training. I was treated like I was a bother.

    Interview

    Horrible horrible experience, Beyond unprofessional. They told me I had an interview at 1:30 p.m. I arrived at 1:20 p.m. they called for the interviewer to let them know I had arrived. I waited for over an hour and 20 minutes for no interviewer to show up. Finally the assistant manager came up to talk to me. The manager informed me that the interviewer went home early hours ago, accused me of being 5 hours late (I know for a fact she said 1:30 p.m.) then told me that I had confirmation emails and confirmations voicemail stating the time and date of the interview; those are blatant lies and I had no emails and no voicemails from them. I tried to show the manager the lack of email. He didn't want to listen to me. And the resume I had brought was crumpled up behind the counter. Huge waste of my gas and time (not only the time waiting buy also the hours of research the company and position). Makes me not even want to shop here anymore.
    So rude and inappropriate not just the unjustly waiting time for no interviewer but also by the assistant manager.
