Hannaford – Why Work With Us?

The Hannaford brothers began selling produce in Portland, Maine, in 1883, but it took a lot more than fresh tomatoes and apples to grow their business.

The brothers looked at their customers and understood what they cared about most – family, community, quality, value – and built the business accordingly, with core values that still show us the way. Today, we are still headquartered (proudly) in the Portland area - you may have seen it as  "best place to live" and certainly at the top of every foodie list in the world.

But enough bragging - we still live the values that defined us nearly two hundred years ago in the nearly 200 stores where our roots still firmly planted - in the Northeast.

Make your mark and grow with a company that welcomes diversity, encourages career growth and celebrates teamwork.

    Flexible hours, paid 30 minute lunch, extra cash back in the Hannaford rewards program, awesome and multiple store brand items!


    Lots of standing, some of the management was unfriendly but that can't really be changed and is situational

    Hannaford To-Go Expiditer Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Kingston, NY
    Accepted Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Easy Interview


    I applied online. The process took 2+ weeks. I interviewed at Hannaford (Kingston, NY) in November 2019.


    Initial interview was scheduled with the in-store HR equivalent but apparently on a day when she was off. The assistant department manager who was assigned to do the interview also called out apparently. I wound up having to come back a second day. In-store HR was a capable interviewer, very comfortable experience once we managed to get over the hurdles at the start. Nearly an hour long, got her talking about the company and store really well.

    Second interview with front end/customer service manager went well. A week passed between these but it was the week of thanksgiving so they were very busy. Also a longer interview, maybe 40 minutes.

    Waited another week before getting a call that I'd been selected for the position but that it would be part time to start. This didn't bother me really but it certainly exhibited more of the general disorganization.

    Everyone I've delt with has seemed competent and dedicated, I'm not sure where the disconnect is but I'm curious to discover it as I start working.

    Interview Questions

    • The only unique question (which I really enjoyed) was "what's something you'd like me to know about you that I haven't yet given you the chance to tell me?"   1 Answer
