    I have been working at Greggs full-time (More than 5 years)


    worked through ranks from weekend assist to GM, good but overly complicated training program's, fun place to work.


    Micro managed by area managers, no innovation or freedom. Harder than it looks!

    Advice to Management

    Allow store managers freedom to deal with issues, and have authority to make on the ground decisions

    Team Member Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Scotland, GA
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview


    I applied in-person. The process took a week. I interviewed at Greggs (Scotland, GA) in October 2014.


    I applied online, registered and did an 20min assessment. Got a call after 2-3 days, for the interview. The women there went through my application and asked a couple of questions and situational ones. Example: Why did you want to work for Greggs ? How do you offer excellent customer service ? If a client orders a vegetarian sandwich and gets a chicken one, what do you do ? Can you give me an example when you took initiative ? Basically if you read about the company values and way of delivering service, everything will be alright. Got the answer straight away. Show that you are well informed and confident.
