Rely on what you learned in training. But go to/ask the lead on deck. Answer two was talk to someone experienced in opening, as well as common sense/logic/attack tasks based on priority of making the store function. Enough bags available to bag first, a couple loose carts outside second.
I'd listen to this guy if I were you. I know I would.... I'm him. : ]
I agree with the last guy. Awesome advice. But of course, I'm the second guy so that's not exactly the same. But I feel that I can trust the first guy, if you know what I mean. :P

I think the first guy to put down his comment was an idiot. But then again, I'm actually Anonymous 2 and consequently his double. Nevertheless, you ought to listen to the guy who wrote the review and the third guy. They're onto something in my opinion.
First answer was spot on. Although you may not be expected to know everything, hopefully whoever trains you will notice whatever blind spots you have. Maintenance is interesting in that you are essentially autonomous from Front End (oftentimes interact more with other departments and especially the shift leader), although you do check in with the booth for the VerifyPro (VP walk; ancient name is Gleason which it took a long time until I saw just how that was spelled) hourly. Depends on the store procedure for little things (winter we put mats out in the Northeast region while people just trip on them come spring) and some stores only hire Cashier Assistants (CAs) and you work your way to register. Once you are very experienced, there is pretty much no reason to ever be seen standing. (Coworkers probably would be too nice to say something to leadership on it, but likely nudge you to work.) As for Front End procedures, often cleaning the conveyor (our SanE water sanitizer) during those down times. Just be prepared for some crazy number of call-outs/no-shows at the end of the year in states that have paid sick leave where those coworkers seek to use it up! PS I applied to 52 jobs (stores within ~40 mile radius) over the course of 8-9 weeks. Maintenance was the one to hire me. Word of advice is listen to people in other departments if you wish to switch over or cross-train (plenty of time to think about that) there to figure out what is and is not worth doing.
First, I would want to spend some time at the plants, working offshifts and participating in clean ups as they currently exist, as well perform a risk assessment of the facility systems and skillsets of employees; then I would utilize this review to work with the point personnel responsible for clean ups at each site to address the gaps discovered and get buy in on solutions. Just disagreeing isn't acceptable, and if the proposed solutions were not seen as viable or best approach, criticism must include alternative solutions or approaches to be considered. I would try hard to build trust and a professional working relationship with the plant representatives, but closing the gaps and improving the food safety status was key.
I'm sorry but I am unable to remember the question I was asked during the interview. I suppose I might say that they would ask you about a difficult decision you were faced with and how you handled that decision.
