  1. Director of Information Security Interview

    Anonymous Employee in United States
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview
    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Grocery Outlet (United States) in Apr 2021

    Interview

    Applied online, received an email to set up a call with the internal recruiter within a week. She wanted me to detail my experience with a public company and SOX (compliance, not InfoSec), and really harped on getting a committal to the pay rate of 165-170 base (fully noting they are underfunding the role).

    Received the “thanks, but no thanks” within five days.

    Props for not ghosting, shameful for an organization that is under PCI and SOX compliance is undervaluing their information security program by having this role report to the CIO (conflict of interest), underpaying for this role in this market, and not having this role in the appropriate place in the executive leadership to ensure business success.

    Bullet dodged. No wonder the previous individual left the role/organization.

    Can you commit to the salary range of 165-170?

Grocery Outlet continued supporting the communities we serve with our Independence From Hunger® Food Drive campaign this past July. Our more than 270 Grocery Outlet stores partnered with a local food agency, directing support to the communities we serve. Working together with our great customers the stores raised over $1.0 million dollars. Thanks to all who supported this great cause.

Grocery Outlet has launched its 5th Annual Independence From Hunger® Food Drive today to donate food throughout July, traditionally a time when food agencies experience the greatest need to serve children who are off from school during the summer. According to the Food Research and Action Center, 6 out of 7 low-income kids who eat a free or reduced-price school lunch during the academic year do not get a free meal during the summer. (Source: Food Research and Action Center, Hunger Doesn't Take a Vacation: Summer Nutrition Status Report 2012).
