    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Smart & Final (San Pedro, CA) in January 2017.

    Interview

    Very straight forward and simple process. The only drawback is in how Smart & Final conducts their orientation scheduling which was the longest part of the entire hiring process. My orientation date was a wait of a little over two weeks.
