    Assistant Store Manager Interview

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Save-A-Lot Food Stores (Charlotte, NC) in August 2009.

    Interview

    Initially had a 1 on 1 interview with HR recruiter : Went over job description, and briefly introduced myself.
    Next, scheduled store tour to visit facility and see daily operations, while touring the location.
    Third, I took an few online assessments which arent too hard, and they give you more than enough time to complete.
    Pending test results, You make me called for a face to face interview with the HR recruiter.
    At this point, if you have suceeded with the HR recruiter, you will be interviewed by district managers. The Hr recruiter as well as district managers will ask various job related questions ( what would you do in this situation?, What did you do in the past if.....?)

    My advice to all interviewees is to of course be yourself, and be descriptive with your solutions, because in the grocery industry we must think outside the box on mutiple occassions to solve a problem.

    Interview Questions

    • How would you increase sales and store traffic without changing current pricing strategy withtin a specific area.   1 Answer

    Negotiation

    I didnt have a problem with the initial offer. I accepted it. Great opportunity for industry.
