    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. I interviewed at Spartan Stores.

    Interview

    I walked into the office and the manager said "When can you start?" He was very helpful initially, but down the line it turned out that he didn't really care about the employees. One of my coworkers got fired because of a miscommunication on the manager's part, but the manager refused to take responsibility. I feel especially terrible for this employee because he was in his 50's and had a family.
