    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at Safeway (Naperville, IL) in June 2010.

    Interview

    There wasn't much involved in the interview process. I just submitted my resume, and had a five minute conversation with the store manager. There was a drug test that I completed after being hired, and also a background check that was completed after I began working there. It was not difficult, and was a fairly quick process.

    Interview Questions

    • They are focused on customer service reviews, so they had some role-play about helping customers out that was a little unexpected.   Answer Question

    Interview

    Managers look for someone willing to follow instructions. Rules change, expectations waver, and managers differ, so willingness to adapt will be important and something the manager will look for. Be on time. Can be very flexible with the schedule. Pay caps off at 10.50 an hour.

    • It's a simple job. The interview won't be anything to worry about.   Answer Question

    Interview

    I applied online and was interviewed and hired two days later. Questions were minimal because I knew some people who already worked at the company. They just want to be sure that you know basic customer service and that you are trainable and have a positive attitude.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4 days. I interviewed at Safeway (Scottsdale, AZ) in January 2012.

    Interview

    Online application, got a call and scheduled interview for next day. Fairly easy questions, basically if you dress up and show up you already have the job because they are always needing new hires. On the spot saliva test to save time and money and started the next Monday. Try to get produce, bakery, or meat dept. as the deli is disgusting and being a cashier hurts to stand in one spot for hours.

    They pay minimum wage, 7.65 in AZ

    Easy Interview

    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.

    Easy Interview

    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.
