    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.

    I submitted on line for a few s
    Safeway's near my house. Three weeks later I get call asking if I was still looking for a job and If I would like to interview. I showed up at the store and they haphazardly had a few tables and chair strewn about.. I sat down with a lady they brought from another store to do the hiring. They were very generic questions, how would your ex-boss describe you?, how do you handle stress?, what motivates you?. Nothing unusual.
