Team Member Interview

Average Interview

Application

I applied in-person. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Trader Joe's (Santa Barbara, CA) in February 2018.

Interview

One-on-one assessment with Team Leader as I dropped off my resume and filled out an application.

A week later I stopped by and talked to the Team Leader again to prove my interest in the position.

Two days later, I received a call back to schedule my first interview (two weeks to the day after dropping resume / fillin out an app) First interview with 2 people, both Team Leaders, consisting of basic questionnaire; Why Trader Joe's? Why did you leave your last job? How do you deal with difficult customers? Do you have any questions for us? How do you see yourself working on a team? Tell us about a time you 'wowed' a customer, etc. Got a call back the next day for second interview.

Three weeks to the day of my first visit (resume & app) I have my second interview. Pretty much the same as the first interview, except with 2 longer tenured (10+ years apiece) team leaders. Received a call the next day to begin training the next week, 4 weeks to the day of dropping off my resume and filling out an app.

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. I interviewed at Trader Joe's in July 2015.

    Interview

    Recommended by a friend. But the person I was supposed to interview wasn't there. Instead of rescheduling it, they had a newly promoted person interview me on the spot. He explained to me more about the company and how they start people out, can be interchangeable to different departments and can transfer to other stores.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. I interviewed at Trader Joe's (Paramus, NJ).

    Interview

    I went through about 2-3 interviews. (They are very thorough). The interview itself isn't that serious...they take you to a secluded part of the store (away from customers) like where their inventory is. Sometimes you have to wait a min or two so they tell you roam around the store. The interview was one on one. I filled out an application and then they scheduled the interview
