    Part Time Cashier Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Old Lyme, CT
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Big Y Foods (Old Lyme, CT) in December 2019.

    Interview

    Not bad at all, they asked several questions but the interviewers (I had two) were both friendly. Probably took about 15-20 minutes. None of the questions were too hard but I did need to think for a moment or two. I felt relaxed during the process.
