    Application

    I applied online. The process took 6+ weeks. I interviewed at Save-A-Lot Food Stores (Jacksonville, FL) in August 2016.

    Interview

    Did my phone interview, went well. Instructed to do an assessment test online, went well. Had a couple of interviews that went well. Got presented with an offer. Now waiting for background check. Took about 12 days, longest days of my life. New I had a couple misdemeanor and driving infractions but was still optimistic. Got a call saying I didnt pass my background check, and I would receive a copy of the background check. I received it few days later. Dont know if I failed because of my record or things I omitted, like my driving record that they didnt ask for. I did have a problem putting my second misdemeanor on their, somehow it skeped me to the end, not allowing me to put in the second one, so maybe that hurt me. I explanded it in the notes at the end.

    Interview

    interview went great. interviewers were friendly and explained that they would like to have me work for the company. They wanted me to start from cashier and work my way up, so that I can learn more about the company.

    Was called back two weeks later to take drug test and update my account information on website giving them the okay to run the background check. So I'm waiting on the background check to come through.

    Interview

    Great interview. Panel interview asked basic questions that related to my resume and my career wants and need. Interviewed by 4 District Managers on their interview day. I walked out feeling really good about the whole process. Unforunately, the job is not nearly as good though.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at Save-A-Lot Food Stores.

    Interview

    I applied online for the position of ASM. A few days later I received a phone call from a recruiter wanting to schedule a phone interview. The phone interview went well along with the assessment I did afterwards. The only obstacle was my salary range. I lowered it to the bare minimum I'd work for any company for! I was then scheduled for a store tour/interview. The store was in bad shape and wasn't conditioned at all. I spoke with the store manager. He asked very few questions and most of them were very basic. I had far more challenging questions than he did. After walking and talking with the SM, I felt far more qualified for his position than he did. The recruiter called me the following day to inform that they would not go any further with me. And that the feedback was that my skills were not what they were looking for. But in my opinion I just wasn't a good fit. I would've outshined and overshadowed a manager like himself.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 6 weeks. I interviewed at Save-A-Lot Food Stores (Charlotte, NC) in May 2014.

    Interview

    Lots of back and forth. Process took 6 weeks. Began with a call from a recruiter in Florida. She asks standard questions. If you have another job pending DO NOT mention it. Next take online assessment. And interview with DM if you do well. Then one more interview with regional mgr. Then HR will call to verify work history and etc.

    Interview Questions

    • Standard questions about talent development and mgr duties. If you have mgr experience you should do fine. They are relaxed during interview but don't let that fool you.   Answer Question
