    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. I interviewed at Giant Food (Lusby, MD) in May 2017.

    Interview

    There was a local hiring event near the Giant store in Lusby that was from 8am to 4pm. Ahead of me were a couple of applicants at the time, and I had to wait for an hour until I was called in. The interview process was about 15-20 minutes, which wasn't too bad. The major problem was that there wasn't enough staff to conduct more interviews for everyone else that had applied to Giant online, including me.
    Previously, I had applied to them multiple times to find employment with them for 3-4 years, called them back multiple times (which felt like pulling teeth out rather than helping you out), and they still refused to attempt to try to help me out. It shouldn't have to take you years to apply for working at Giant. I can understand maybe a couple of days or weeks for new recruitment, but not years. Only one employee was able to help me, but everyone else just didn't seem to want to try at all. I would recommend applying somewhere else other than applying to this Giant to apply instead. This Giant is just awful at helping anyone find work or give any work at all.
