    Bakery Clerk Interview

    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 days. I interviewed at Safeway (Ellicott City, MD) in February 2018.

    Interview

    Very brief. The hiring manager spent a few minutes filling out paperwork before he asked a few fairly simple questions. He asked if I thought I could handle a fast-paced position, and if I had a problem with frequent interaction with customers. Then he moved on to the interview questions, and said that one or two word answers were fine. Finally, he shook my hand and told me when I could meet with the manager of the bakery department.
