    Service Team Leader Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Wegmans Food Markets in November 2016.

    Interview

    Had a phone interview, a week later had a face to face then a week later another face to face within multiple locations. The process was extremely tedious being its a food store.The interview process had no eye contact because they read and type/write off a computer or paper. Way too many redundant questions for a food store. You can tell it's young management in the NJ location and are very clicky / caddy. I'm very disappointed in how they handled things as for call backs and emails.

    It was relatively easy, I applied online then received a email to confirm a phone interview. I applied at another Wegmans store and they declined me as a applicant, it must be because I wanted $12 hour and they won't pay that much money.

    Health and Beauty Customer Service Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Geneva, NY
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at Wegmans Food Markets (Geneva, NY) in November 2016.

    Interview

    All I got was a brief phone call with 5 or 6 general questions. A few days later I got an email saying my application was no longer being considered! I called the HR person and asked if she could give me any indication of why and she said she could tell me only that other applicants were a better fit. I don't have experience in retail, but I do in working with the public for 20yrs. I never would've thought I couldn't even get an interview for a position like this for which no special skills are needed! Now I'm thinking that Wegmans is a lot more tuff than I thought!!

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Wegmans Food Markets (New York, NY).

    Interview

    I got an email 1 day after applying, and then was called to schedule an interview. I had no phone interview. My first interview was very laid back and easy-going. The interviewer asked me questions regarding values of Wegmans and why i would be a good fit for the company, also, why i left my previous jobs. My second interview was intense. This interview was scheduled for a week later after the first. It was a panel interview with three people. They asked more behavioral related questions. For example, what i would do in certain situations and what i did previously to resolve certain issues. I would strongly recommend going on YouTube and searching for good ways to answer certain behavioral questions.

    Cashier/Customer Service Representative Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Amherst, NY
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Wegmans Food Markets (Amherst, NY) in October 2016.

    Interview

    Prior to interviews - Took about 3 weeks to hear back from an HR. Eventually did via email to setup a phone interview.

    Phone Interview - Took about 20 minutes. Many of the questions they ask are very general, such as availability. Most of the more "advanced" questions they ask you are all throughout this app.

    In Between - Received a call a few days later to schedule an in person interview that week.

    In-Person Interview - Took about 30-35 minutes. Very similar questions to what was on the phone interview. They do ask about some success stories, so make sure you have some ready! They also threw a few situational questions out there. Just be yourself and relaxed and you will get the job.

    Aftermath - Got a call 3 days later with a job offer. Obviously, I accepted! After that, you will sign some stuff and begin with the orientation and then training.

    had three interviews, one by phone two in person, had two men interview me for a position and realized they were doing the interview just to do the interview.
