    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    Very informal with outdated questions.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.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4 days. I interviewed at Safeway (San Francisco, CA) in June 2016.

    Interview

    Very simple and straightforward. Got called in after applying online 3 days before. Sat down with a hiring rep at my local Safeway and answered some basic questions. My only problem was that they don't really have a clear idea of the hours that you will work, and they push you to extend your "preferred hours" in order to be able to schedule you as they please.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at Safeway (Santa Clara, CA) in September 2015.

    Interview

    The interview was very easy, sat and talked with the hiring manager and it seemed like she wanted to hire me from the start ( despite my purple hair at the time ). I was drug tested on the spot, then she had me fill out paper work and do some on the computer then she told me about the orientation and when and where it will be.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Safeway (Colorado Springs, CO) in August 2015.

    Interview

    Very informal, was held in a room with other employees, kept getting interrupted by other employees. The room was small and dingy. The employee lounge was depressing. Get prepared to be interrupted during the process - remember this was a pre-screening only, so maybe this kind of process is to be somewhat expected.

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Safeway (Milwaukie, OR) in July 2015.

    Interview

    Sit down and talk with the hiring manager, they give you the drug test which is a sponge on a stick you put under your tongue for a while and then they ask you a bunch of questions. They ask you why you want to work for them, ask you your past experiences and your skills and what not. I got hired right on the spot.
