    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Vons (San Diego, CA) in November 2016.

    Interview

    I arrived at a Von's location to meet with the hiring manager. In the back offices they conducted a short 15 minute one-on-one interview that consisted of previous work experience and situational "what would you do if" type questions. They asked if I was okay doing the drug test (mouth swab) on the spot to get it over with, I agreed, and after a few minutes it was cleared. At the end of the interview I was offered a position.

    Application

    I applied in-person. I interviewed at Vons (Solana Beach, CA) in April 2016.

    Interview

    It was perfect for being at my first interview ever, I think that the interviewer was really nice, and he seemed to be really nice. He was very helpful from the get-go he seemed to know how nervous I was and wanted me to be calmer, and understand the process of getting a job, he seemed to know everyone who passed through the doors really well too.

    The interview was really easygoing (at least at the one I applied for). The hiring manager didn't mind that I didn't have any customer service experience or any work experience for that matter.

I asked about working hours, schedule, training, and other information that an applicant should know in deciding if they really want the job, you may just find out at the interview that it isn't the right fit for you.   1 Answer
