    Deli Clerk Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Levittown, NY
    Accepted Offer
    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Stop & Shop (Levittown, NY) in March 2015.

    Interview

    This process took more than four hours. The manager that was helping me was constantly leaving to do other tasks and told me to wait for her. Then criticised me for not having clocked out on time when I didn't even know how to clock out. Keep in mind this is my first job. She was supposed to teach me. I watched multiple videos involving food allergies and hygiene. Then about security and insurance. Answered questions. Waited for her. Some of it had to be done in a second day because it took more time than what was specified. Then they fingerprint you like in prison. You're in the system after 30 days. It is incredibly mechanical. Then they ask you what hours are good for you. You give those hours. In no time at all they constantly inconvenience you. It never ends. They explain the purpose of the store background information ways of getting job terminated and never regarding for a split second that the worker is human and not a mechanical part of the machine culture that corporate greed originates. Then after about a week they let you start actually working.

    Stocks/Cashier Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in New York, NY
    Declined Offer
    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 days. I interviewed at Stop & Shop (New York, NY).

    Interview

    Applied online first, and then got a call a few days later asking me to come for an interview. I ask her what I need to bring and she lists the specific documents I need to bring with me. I come, prepared, and the lady who's supposed to interview me makes me wait 30 minutes. Since I'm desperate for a paying job, I wait, even if there's no place to sit and my legs are killing me. She brings me over to her office and I find out I needed to bring another document with me, except she forgot to tell me. So I ask her when I can come and she says the next day. I come in the next day and am told she's too busy, and to come back in an hour. I come back in an hour, she makes me wait another 30 minutes, and during that time, I see her snap rudely at some young employees. At this point, I already made up my mind and decided to walk out. If I'm going to be treated terribly and paid minimum wage, I might as well get free food out of it, so I decided to apply at Shake Shack/McD's instead. Good riddance. Have fun in your dying, poorly managed store.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. I interviewed at Stop & Shop (Assonet, MA).

    Interview

    This business should be ashamed of itself. It is one of the most disgustingly abusive facilities I have come across in terms of employee treatment and the CEOs should be arrested for the perpetuation of inhumane conditions. Workers are regularly forced to work for 13 plus hour days without proper breaks, to handle feces and corroded produce without standard protective equipment, and are regularly subjected to a hostile work environment. Whatever their public face, this company is in gross violation of worker's rights and the only reason they have not yet been exposed for their atrocities is because they openly threaten their workers. Anyone with a shred of social decency should boycott this business and for the sake of your health and sanity, please do not ever, ever consider working here!!!
