    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.

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Safeway (New York, NY).

    Interview

    hired on the spot. easy interview. easy to get your foot in the door and move up. The hiring manager is usually just a head clerk so they can relate to you better than a store manager. It was very laid back and would say that almost anyone could easily get the job.

    Filled out an application online, called to speak with the hiring manger. He said he'd call me back or email me, I haven't heard from him since. I wonder what's going on.

    Application

    I applied in-person. I interviewed at Safeway (San Jose, CA).

    Interview

    The interview process started out at a 'job fair' event that was sort of like a pre-screening for all those interested. The interviewers at my store were managers & HR and they were very personable and straight-forward.

    Most of the questions were behavioral and situational so just be sure you come in ready with good responses in mind. There were two stages of interviews.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 5 days. I interviewed at Safeway (Portland, OR) in September 2016.

    Interview

    The interview was pretty standard. Had general questions like what are your goals. My interviewer also read the intend of the questions off the page so the interview seemed more natural. They suggested I apply to cashier because the pay had a higher cap so it had the most future potential. It's better to turn this down so that you don't receive checker training, that way you can do the job you want and not get pulled away to check when they have lines.
