    Interview

    It is very simple behavior-based questions. For example, give me a example in which you showed a good customer service experience and how did you greet customers and provided good service. It only took me 15 minutes to finish the interview. And the next day after interview, I got hired.

    Clerk Interview

    Anonymous Employee
    Accepted Offer

    Interview

    very good, self teaching aids for training and very in depth, not enough practical training time once you are on the job you are expected to perform at 100% far too quickly. mostly due to there not being enough wages in the budget to train extensively

    - I find it difficult to believe that sometimes they're very picky in their hiring process. Just because some people aren't used to their hiring method doesn't mean they don't deserve to be hired. Probably the worst experience I've ever experienced . Luck of diversity that's all I can say for now.

    Interview Questions

    • If you ever received a call regarding to their job interview; know that it's either a group interview but I am not sure about one on one. They'll also ask general questions to get a feel of who you are. I Had to role play given situations. Even if I did compete against many people during the group interview with all flyers that we had to pick a meal or deserts to make from it but still I didn't meet their requirements which is a joke to me and to of that at least lie to people that will be giving them a call.   Answer Question

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Calgary, AB (Canada)
    No Offer
    Negative Experience

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Sobeys (Calgary, AB (Canada)) in January 2017.

    Interview

    Submitted a resume, got a phone call from the store manager to schedule an interview a couple days later. It was one interview at the sobeys west head office, since the new store wasn't open yet.. the interview lasted about 30 minutes from what I recall. Basic questions, super general, just to get a feel for who you are. I was told I would hear back, when the decisions were made at the end of the following week.. never did, I had to chase down the manager for 3 days to try and find out what the status was, as I had other job offers.

    I saw a ad in the paper in need of someone for produce and had previously been with Safeway so I had experiences. I then went in with my resume and meet the manager of the store as the produce manager wasn't in, and was basically asked about my experience and such with safeway and how it would relate to this job. I then got told to come back the next morning to talk to the produce manager who just basically got to know me and then asked how much I was looking for, and then he hired me.
