They will ask why you want to work there and will give you various scenarios that you must give a response to. Make sure you are friendly because that's a big part of the job.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at Safeway (Washington, DC) in September 2013.

    Interview

    One on one interview, pulled my online application, sat down with the hiring recruiter, gave him my background as previously working at Safeway as a Food Clerk. I answered his questions truthfully and also inquired about being a full-time Food Clerk and he answered no. I asked about the hourly wage and based on my past employment with them I would have to start at minimum wage again because I was gone for more than 3 years which I did not think was right but that's how they play.
