    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Shoppers Food & Pharmacy (Millersville, MD).

    Interview

    This company took over from METRO markets which was an INVOLVED and well received neighborhood oriented supermarket. When SHOPPERS took over the slide downhill was like an express train to Hell. The job interview was simple...are you breathing? Do you know a tomato from an onion? GREAT! You're hired. They are looking for pack mules and beasts of burden NOT involved, skillful workers.

    Interview Questions

    • There were NONE. I was hired in less than 7 minutes simply because I showed up.   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    NONE.. I needed a job being new to the area with ongoing expenses and THEY needed one additional village idiot.

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Shoppers Food & Pharmacy (Fairfax, VA) in October 2013.

    Interview

    I applied online and went to the store to check on my application. I spoke to the manager and told her of my interest in working there. She took my phone number and told me she would check on my application. Within a few days, I received a phone call and got scheduled for an interview.
    There were a couple of other applicants at the interview. Although I didn't had any experience working in the U.S. apart from babysitting, she gave me a shot and I had a 90 days probation period.
    The interview itself went great. The questions were pretty straightforward.
