    Grocery Third Manager Interview

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Safeway (Marana, AZ) in April 2017.

    Interview

    It was very seldom, I was greeted and then invited into the interview room. It went surprisingly well. I'm a horrible interviewer. But I seemed to do quite well. I was offered the job on spot actually.

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Safeway (Bel Air, MD) in April 2017.

    Interview

    Quick, Friendly, also had a lot of miss informed information. Was told how rude the manager was, but not to the point he shouldn't be working there. One manager named Matt was really nice though.

    Anonymous Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Lynnwood, WA

    Neutral Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Safeway (Lynnwood, WA) in March 2017.

    Interview

    Walkin, unexpected interview. I saw the sign on the door, after I got off the bus, and said, well, I might as well see what they have as opening, since I was recovering from surgery, and couldn't use my right arm, yet. I knew I couldn't use my right arm, yet, for another, couple of months, and was desperate for another, job, but being disabled, and homeless, I thought I might see if they had any positions for a one armed person. Of course I immediately was shoved into an interview for a BAKER, who needed to shuffle 50 pound bags of flour etc, all day. NOT something I could do. NOW will this thing let me exit? I have to get to my part time job.

    Grocery Clerk Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Denver, CO

    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Safeway (Denver, CO) in March 2017.

    Interview

    Was notified by email to attend interview. All went well, lots of paperwork. They have me meet human resources, take drug test, fill out all form including direct deposit etc. I figure I'm hired. No, I need to take physical exam. It'll be a week before I can get scheduled. I do that finally, take the exam, pass no problem. I call HR, they say that they'll let me know. A few days go by, I keep calling, emailing. Finally I get a letter in snail mail saying the position is filled. No explanation. Not sure why they wasted all my time and theirs?
