    Difficult Interview

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Safeway in September 2017.

    Interview

    I went in and my interviewer seemed very uninterested in my presence and like I was wasting my time. I'm honestly very qualified for the position even though I have no true work experience because of my volunteer experience and professional training. I was treated like I was a bother.
