Cashier Interview Lake Bluff, IL

What do you know about Heinen's? [paraphrased]


Interview Answer

1 Answer


I recited historical details from their website, which I'd memorized prior to the interview. This wasn't necessary, but I don't think it hurt. My interviewer would have been more impressed if I had mentioned that Heinen's values its customers, specializes in service, and employs people with good values. [Important side note - "good values" means being honest and respectful, working hard, staying out of trouble and the like. I was never asked about my religious beliefs.]

There were no tricks during the interview. Common sense and "soft skills" (dress professionally, look the person in the eye, etc) will get you the job. You'll also probably get the salary you ask for, as long as it's within the range typically offered by grocery stores, so error slightly on the high side. Depending on your relationship with your boss it may be hard to get a raise later on.
