    Cashier/Produce Clerk Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Mayville, NY
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at TOPS Markets (Mayville, NY) in April 2017.

    Interview

    I already knew the manager personally, as we started school together. But, she saw me in the store, one day, and said they were looking for cashiers. I wasn't currently working, so I then officially applied online. She called me a couple of days later. I was hired that day.

    Interview Questions

    • It was more of a conversation than an interview. The manager already knew a lot of my work history and knew that I was a stay-at-home mom. She knew that I had cashier experience from working for Tops in a different location and from another grocery store.   1 Answer

    Front End Cashier Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Owego, NY
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through other source. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at TOPS Markets (Owego, NY) in July 2016.

    Interview

    Brief. Basically run through your entire application with you and ask you to explain more in depth your work history. Whether or not it's a group interview depends on what department you are working in and how many managers run that department. For example, if you're applying for the Front End position, you will have all managers (for myself it was 3) in charge alternate asking you questions. You will also be informed, in detail, of the job requirements.

    Interview Questions

    • They will definitely ask you about any gaps in employment, especially if they were/are longer than a year apart.   Answer Question

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at TOPS Markets.

    Interview

    Applied online and got a call within a few days and asked to come in for an interview. Interview went okay, questions are pretty basic. I actually interviewed at 2 different locations--first location was basic interview style questions and the other was more low key and it was more of a conversation than an interview. First place said they'd call me within a few days and called me a week later. They asked me to come in for an orientation either the the saturday coming up or the next and told they'd call me within a couple days and they never did. By the time they called nearly a week and a half later, I had already interviewed at the 2nd place and said I would like to switch to that one...and then that place never called me.

    I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at TOPS Markets (Buffalo, NY).

    Interview

    The interview was very good and fun. I got hired the next day. So it was good. The interviewer would ask personal questions and make jokes to loosen you up if your nervous. Plus she was very nice and warm. The interview lasted about 20 mins ,so that was another plus for them. I just wish the room where we were at was a little warmer.

    Neutral Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at TOPS Markets (Hilton, NY) in August 2015.

    Interview

    It lasted about 8 minutes and there were two women who interviewed me, one asked all the questions and talked, the other just sat in and listened. I was asked a few questions then they told me about the company. I did not have any questions for them because I was a little cloudy for some reason, but I suggest you think of at least a few questions you can ask at the interview if they do not go over them. agter the questions they had me sign and read a few papers about my criminal record and I needed my SSN so be sure to have that with you. I was asked to bring 2 forms of ID and all she did was take a glance at them, I'm sure it's more useful ounces hired.
