    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Thrifty Foods.

    Interview

    It was a new store so it was a quick five minute interview at a job fair type setting. There was a bit of a miscommunication error in the location being changed, but luckily my being fifteen minutes late didn't affect my interview. The manager asked a 4-5 questions that were pretty straightforward and easy to answer.

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at Thrifty Foods (Coquitlam, BC (Canada)) in August 2015.

    Interview

    I applied the job online, then they called me back 10 days later and set the interview date. I was taken to upstairs office to be interviewed.

    The interviewer was friendly. It took about 10-15 minutes or so. After interview, the lady from the bakery took me down to the baking section to show me around. I asked them when would I hear from them if I got hired, and she told me in 4 days or so. I did';t hear from them after one week so I guess I din't get hired.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 3 days. I interviewed at Thrifty Foods (Central Saanich, BC (Canada)) in December 2013.

    Interview

    My last interview, when I was hired back after a time travelling, was rather disappointing in the end. The manager asked general questions, and I knew I would likely be hired because they all already knew me, but she asked me how much I would like to be paid, which was a misleading question because she knew no matter what I said, I would be put back down to minimum wage (which was 10.25 at the time). I said $12.00/hour or more, because that is what I believe my skills and work experience as well as work ethic are worth, but was disappointed. I do not think that question was appropriate because of its misleading nature.
