    Bakery Clerk Interview

    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at WinCo Foods (Clovis, CA) in July 2019.

    Interview

    Submitted online application, heard from a recruiter 3 weeks after. Interview was scheduled within the week. I arrived at the store, went to customer service desk to check in. The person at the customer service desk was distracted and had to wait 10 minutes before getting a questionnaire to fill out about the position. I was directed to the break room to sit and wait for my name to be called. While waiting in the break room, others were on their break as well. The floors, tables, and chairs were dirty. Employees gossiping and saying negative comments about their co-workers; it was all distracting to us interviewees. After waiting 30 min, my name was called. I was in a little room with the Bakery Supervisor and another associate of hers. Bakery Supervisor was pleasant and professional, however the other associate she had was not engaged in the interview, and when I was making eye contact with her to discussing my experience, she was look around the room and looked bored. Overall, not a great interview experience, and not a professional working environment, and was not interested in the position anymore.

    Cashier Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Gresham, OR
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 days. I interviewed at WinCo Foods (Gresham, OR) in May 2019.

    Interview

    They sat me and 3 other people down in a room and described the open positions to us. They then had us fill out a few papers, and sent us to the break room until the managers were available to interview us.

    The only thing is, the position is minimum wage, and they drug test in a legal state, in a city where dispensaries seem to be at every corner. The only thing drug testing does is allows the company to get to decide what you do in your free time. Plus, most people that get hired are probably faking their urine tests, meaning dishonest people are getting hired because of an outdated policy.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at WinCo Foods in May 2019.

    Interview

    Applied online got a call in around a week for a interview. I went in and the interview was pretty standard and the person conducting the interview was great. Had to fill out a form with questions before hand that they would go over in the interview. However they use the position as a smokescreen to try and get overnight variety stockers even though the listings say day shifts. So I had to unfortunately decline the offer.
