    Anonymous Interview

    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.

    Produce Clerk Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Seattle, WA
    Accepted Offer
    Neutral Experience
    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.
