    Courtesy Clerk Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Fontana, CA
    No Offer
    Negative Experience

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Vons (Fontana, CA) in July 2017.

    Interview

    I couldn't even get an interview because the manager is impossible to get a hold of. I submitted my application online, called, and the customer service rep said they were hiring and that they would call me back. Never called me back. After a couple weeks, I decided to go in to the actual store, and asked a girl working there if they were hiring, she said they were and that I should leave my resume, so I went all the way back to my house, printed it out, and drove all the way back to Vons to leave my resume. I waited but still nothing, so I called asking for the manager and the same CS rep from 2 weeks back said the manager would be available the next day in the afternoon. I was skeptical but I still decided to just wait and call in the afternoon, so I do exactly that and this time a different CS rep answers, saying the manager won't be in until tomorrow. I ask what time she'll be in and he says he has no idea, unlike the other CS who claimed to know. After this, I gave up. When I filled out the application, Safeway said they had 11 positions open and on Snagajob they had the "urgently hiring" tag, but it's hard to have faith in even getting an interview when the manager happens to never be there. If you're not urgently hiring or hiring at all, stop saying you are and wasting people's time! Or if my application isn't satisfactory, just say so. So unprofessional.

    Bakery Clerk Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Anaheim Hills, CA
    No Offer
    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Vons (Anaheim Hills, CA) in June 2017.

    Interview

    Visited the location after submitting an online application in order to verify completion, and was immediately pulled into an interview. The process was brief and simple, totaling roughly about 15 minutes.

    The interviewer was engaging, personable, and willing to elaborate on description of job duties. Questions covered by the interview were in regard mainly to schedule availability, prior job experience, and personal work ethic.

    Although the process was notably quite easy, I was not offered a position. However, this is of my own fault rather than that of the company. The store location in particular was searching for applicants with open availability, which I did not possess due to summertime attendance at a local college.

    The position didn't require much experience. I never worked in a deli but I did have a food handlers certification. The questions asked were very general and not pressing questions. The interview was basically them getting to know me and seeing my personality. I had no scenario questions. I did have to complete a drug test in order to work for the company. I thought the interview experience was very relaxed.
