    Lead Assistant Manager Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Gainesville, FL
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at The Pantry (Gainesville, FL) in May 2013.

    Interview

    Put through application via kangaroocareers.com for just about every management position they had at every store I'd be willing to work at. You only have to fill it out once, then just reclick through the pages for the others. Get emailed an assessment-- make sure to pass the assessment. It's not a percentage grade, it's rated in sections (customer service, sales skills, etc) by red, yellow, or green. They can't hire you if you get a red. Got a call for an interview about a week later, scheduled for the next day. It was a pretty relaxing interview. The people were cool. Just basically, can you work 40 hours? are you in school? are you capable of relatively simple math and counting cash? computer skills? food/management experience? smoking cigarettes is a plus.

    Statistician Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Cary, NC
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at The Pantry (Cary, NC) in December 2011.

    Interview

    I applied for a financial analyst position within the company. About 2 weeks later, I received a call from a recruiter at the company, who told me about a statistican job that I was qualified for, and my previous employer gave me a connection to The Pantry, so they were interested in me. I gave her permission to submit my resume, and was contacted to set up an interview about 2 weeks later. Everyone at the office was very friendly, and my interview was very comfortable. I interviewed with the VP of my department, and it was a very easy conversation. I was offered a job at another company shortly after the interview, so I contacted The Pantry to tell them, and they responded with a promise of an offer within a few weeks, which they delivered and I accepted.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 5 days. I interviewed at The Pantry (Cary, NC) in June 2011.

    Interview

    short and unilluminating. Not much discussion of the position, lots of bs about how great the company and job was, despite the fact we worked in a double wide trailer with humidity problems. I only took the job because I was desperate and it was the armpit of the recession. I did get promoted pretty quickly, but it was to another low paying position.

    I wanted more, they wouldn't grant it.
