    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Safeway (Portland, OR).

    Interview

    Very informal with outdated questions. Felt the interviewer was done for the day, but she had been going through several people before me. Didn't have a good feel that she listened to my qualifications. Of course this was a large hiring and I think they were just looking for warm bodies to get through store opening.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Safeway (Phoenix, AZ) in January 2012.

    Interview

    I put in a paper application and submit it to the manager. I kept calling to see if there was an opening and to show my comittment. My interview was performed by a hiring manager. She asked me questions like how would you describe your favorite food. They are big on customer service and descriptive selling. She explained what was important to them and was interested in what my needs were as far as a flexible schedule. Note...if you need hours your availability needs to be open,they will work with you but it might be at the expense of your total hours for the week.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Safeway (San Francisco, CA) in May 2017.

    Interview

    I applied through the website. I got a call back a few days later to set up an interview. It was a very brief interview, very basic. I had to start some paperwork, submit to a drug test, and specify availability. I was told that I was hired and had to come back a couple days later to finalize paperwork. Within a couple days I was in the Safeway I was to work at to meet my manager and immediately begin training/work. From the day I submitted my app online to when I stepped in for training/work it took about 10 days.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Safeway (Newark, NJ) in January 2016.

    Interview

    Quick questions along with a drug test right there (cotton swab). Very easy to pass. Questions were mostly about prior experience and what you would expect on the job. pay rates and union also discussed. My interviewer kept staring at my chest,,,which is odd because I am a man but I did have a sweet pump and also some chest hair. maybe that gave me some points.
