Easy Interview

Application

I applied online. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at Shaw's in August 2014.

Interview

The interview process was pretty quick and straightforward. You just completed an application online and I got a call the next day asking me to come in for an interview. This was the time we did have an HR and this was a different store manager.
I just went into the interview and answered basic interview questions and was told that I didn't have to meet with the checkout manager because I was exactly the kind of person they were looking for.

The person interviewing me was very nice and open they didn't have a look on their face saying they didn't wanna be there or anything like that so that was nice.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 5 days. I interviewed at Shaw's (Franklin, MA) in March 2011.

    Interview

    I arrived at the office early. The office had no windows, and was full of people in fluorescent light. Overall the woman I interviewed was sweet, and explained all of the details of my employment in a positive way. She made the whole experience of working at the grocery store seem wonderful, which got me excited to work there. I was unpleasantly surprised when I started and things weren't all they were cracked up to be.
