    Asset Protection Specialist Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Frederick, MD
    No Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at Wegmans Food Markets (Frederick, MD).

    Interview

    I received one phone call after I applied to schedule a phone interview. The phone interview was shorter than I anticipated, but I suspect it was because I answered their salary question honestly, based on the job requirements. I had researched everything before the interview and I suggested the salary range of a department manager. Asset protection is a different department in the store, but the person in that position cannot be tempted to turn away from activities that may be going on within that store because he or she may accept money to do so. To pay someone way less than other similar employees is a recipe for disaster in the security field.

    I had a telephone interview that was over one hour long. I was asked the following questions. The woman I interviewed with was very nice and pleasant and I enjoyed speaking with her.

    Customer Service Associate Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Dulles, VA
    No Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 days. I interviewed at Wegmans Food Markets (Dulles, VA) in January 2018.

    Interview

    I applied on their website for a hiring event at the Dulles, VA location. The next day, I received an email asking me to call HR to schedule an interview. After leaving a message and waiting a day, I received a telephone call to come in for a set time during the all day hiring event. Two staff checked people in on laptops, and were instructed to wait until someone is available, or taken to the lap tops for completing an application. They forgot about me, or skipped over me. After 45 minutes I asked about the status of my wait. A quick acknowledgement of a mishap, and I was again told t wait. This was a very perfunctory preliminary screening interview of 10 minutes. The staffer read certain statements and asked questions from the online application. They informed me that they cannot guarantee a certain number of hours for a PT employee. If you want or need benefits, you must apply for FT. Withing two weeks I will be notified if I make it to the next level of Store Management interview.
