    Front End Cashier Interview

    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at Sobeys (East York, ON (Canada)) in October 2016.

    Interview

    I sent in my resume and couple of days later I received a call from the manager wishing to conduct a phone interview or questionnaire with me. She asked three questions on the phone. 1) Why are you applying to this specific store? 2) How would you approach customers? 3) What is customer service to you?

    After the phone interview or questionnaire, the manager asked me to come to the store to have a face to face interview. Altogether the phone interview or questionnaire and the face to face interview took place within the week.

    The face to face interview was very basic and lasted approximately 30 minutes.

    Procurement Coordinator Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Mississauga, ON (Canada)
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Sobeys (Mississauga, ON (Canada)) in September 2016.

    Interview

    Worst interview process ever.. received an email asking when I was available. I gave a few choices but no one ever confirmed anything... then I was called at the wrong time. Screening was pretty simple and to the point. I then received an email telling me when my in person interview was and what time.. didn't have a choice or anything. Interview was tough and painfully enduring and not very welcoming. I just wanted to walk out. Never received an email that I didn't get a job although I was told I would.. not likely to apply for any job there again. Probably one of the worst processes I've encountered.

    Cashier Interview

    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!
