    Assistant Store Director Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Salt Lake City, UT
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Smith's Food & Drug (Salt Lake City, UT) in January 2016.

    Interview

    Met with the majority of corp. managers and interviewed with each of them.. Majority of the questions were situational.. They pretty much followed the script. After completing an interview I was led to another room to meet with someone else. This continued half a dozen times. Many of the managers commented that they didn't even know how to respond to these questions.

    Cashier Interview

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at Smith's Food & Drug.

    Interview

    They asked about working with others, teamwork, and customer service. There is an HR person there at the store.

    Prior to the interview, I had applied online at Smiths.com, where it was entered into the Kroger system. From there, I called to inform them I have placed an application -- which I feel helped quite a bit.

    Kroger and Smith's focus on the three A's: Aknowledge, Assist, and Appreciate. Some knowledge on how and what those are may possibly prepare you for the interview. Just make sure to appear clean, confident, honest, and responsible.

    Bakery Clerk Interview

    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Smith's Food & Drug (Las Vegas, NV) in November 2016.

    Interview

    Very easy. Didn't really ask to many "interview" questioned mostly asked about my availability and the position itself. I first did a kind of phone interview where they asked me very easy questions, then i got a interview time. The whole face to face interview took about 15 minutes. Plus I'm a teenager with no work experience and was hired on the spot which was very cool!

    Grocery Stocker Interview

    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Smith's Food & Drug (West Valley City, UT) in May 2017.

    Interview

    Went in early like the asked me to do and waited an extra half hour just for the interviewer. Was taken to the back and asked 4 or 5 questions then was told to call them the following day. I did and they seemed pretty upset I called them, and kept stringing me along for 2 weeks until I received an email that my 8 years of retail experience was being passed up by more qualified applicants, what a joke. was one of the worst interview processes I've been through. I don't recommend this company they don't seem to have it together.
