    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 days. I interviewed at Safeway (San Jose, CA) in September 2016.

    Interview

    Interviewer was courteous, not necessarily the most responsive. She asked very typical questions. If you have any experience with interviews and aren't incompetent, then it should be pretty easy and straightforward.

    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Safeway in September 2016.

    Interview

    I applied for Bakery Clerk but to my surprise the position was no longer available and they were interested in interviewing me for another position! I had a call where they left a voice mail and I contacted them the next day and we set up an appointment for me to come in for a one on one interview. It was very relaxed and just answering standard questions, why I'm interested in working there, what my goals are, explaining why I would be a good fit etc. I ended up being hired through the questions.

    Courtesy Clerk Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Portland, OR
    Accepted Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 5 days. I interviewed at Safeway (Portland, OR) in September 2016.

    Interview

    The interview was pretty standard. Had general questions like what are your goals. My interviewer also read the intend of the questions off the page so the interview seemed more natural. They suggested I apply to cashier because the pay had a higher cap so it had the most future potential. It's better to turn this down so that you don't receive checker training, that way you can do the job you want and not get pulled away to check when they have lines.

    • They asked me to sell my favorite food item to them by describing why it was good.   1 Answer
