Produce Clerk Interview

Anonymous Employee in Cave Creek, AZ
Accepted Offer
Neutral Experience
Easy Interview

Application

I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at Safeway (Cave Creek, AZ) in June 2017.

Interview

Applied online to a store 3 miles from my house. I got a call a week later asking if I was still interested. Application was bounced to another Safeway 10 miles away. It was my first job so I accepted. The interview was at 9am in the in-store Starbucks. She asked me easy questions, verified I was who I said I was, and offered me the job on the spot.

    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. Other than that, all the questions could be found on other Glassdoor reviews of Safeway.

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at Safeway (Discovery Bay, CA) in July 2016.

    Interview

    Applied online. Received a call about a week later and went in for an interview. The hiring manager was very nice and asked simple interview questions. It was over in about 15 minutes. The position I applied for was not open at the time, but they said they would find a place for me. A week later I got a call back and went in for training.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 days. I interviewed at Safeway (Seattle, WA) in June 2016.

    Interview

    I applied through Safeway's online job portal; made a profile and submitted it to the store location and specific job. I got a call the next day about a job at a different location and not at all what I applied for. This was fine, but I was unclear as to why I couldn't work at the Safeway down the street from where I lived.
    Once in the 'interview,' it was very informal. Basically, they saw I was breathing, actually showed up, and asked if I wanted the job. I accepted then and there and started the next day with training. Not really an interview at all. I was breathing and that was qualification enough, apparently.

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at Safeway.

    Interview

    Pretty basic. Received a call from the store manager, set up an interview with the hiring manager. Interview was very relaxed, the hiring manager did not make me feel nervous or intimidated. Standard questions (what does customer service mean to you, describe a time you made a customer happy, etc.). Shared a few laughs. Overall pretty positive experience.

    Interview

    Difficult online application, telephone request for interview, out of town interview, offered late night order shopping- not the job I applied for first. After I explained I could not arrange proper transportation they offered me a job cashiering which change to produce after a few months.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Safeway (East Wenatchee, WA) in October 2015.

    Interview

    General "Food Clerk" questionnaire. Are you adaptable, I.E. can you run a register and be pulled way from your department to help the staff/team/store? Willingness to work. After the interview you have to concede to a drug test and background check. The drug test comes before the background check and will determine whether or not you are even eligible to work for the company.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Safeway (Puyallup, WA) in August 2015.

    Interview

    Super easy, got hired on the spot. They don't really ask many questions, but you have to bother them everyday about when you'll be actually hired on. It took her 3 weeks to finally get me in the store, she only called me once and I called her every single day. They are friendly but it's not worth the starting off pay.
