    Cashier Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Toronto, ON (Canada)
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at Sobeys (Toronto, ON (Canada)).

    Interview

    I applied online.. got a call maybe 3 days later, was asked to come in for an interview the next day.
    After I got the call I searched up interview experiences on this and found out there were 2 types of interviews: Personal and Interactive
    I was hoping for a personal interview but instead it was a group interview-- there were 3 activities :
    - advertising a product in the flyer
    - making a meal from the flyer
    - customer service scenarios

    So, I was obviously prepared since I read about that the previous night, did that and 3 days later got a call saying I got the job.
    I guess an interactive interview is better because it doesn't take a lot to determine whether you're capable of the job or not.

    Best wishes to those that apply!

    Administration Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Calgary, AB (Canada)
    Accepted Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Sobeys (Calgary, AB (Canada)) in March 2016.

    Interview

    Very brief, not really organized. Did not get to meet who I would actually be working for. Only had one interview then received job offer by email. There was no discussion about benefits, vacation and the salary offered was lower than what had been discussed in the one interview. After emailing a rely, never heard back from HR about negotiating or having further discussions. They still couldn't even tell me who I would be working for.
