I was offered the job on the spot, started the next week. The whole process was quick and painless, wish I could say the same about the actual job itself.

    Cashier/Bagger Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Stop & Shop.

    Interview Details

    I submitted my application online and received a call a week later to come in to meet the hiring manager. The "interview" was more like an informal chat, which was expected given the position I was applying for.

    Keep in mind I was in high school and looking for a part-time summer job just to stay busy. Apply early in the summer for the best chance since the number of applications skyrockets once schools get out.

    Interview Questions

    Gas Station Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Stoneham, MA (US)
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 2 days - interviewed at Stop & Shop.

    Interview Details

    The hiring process was kind of iffy, although I imagine it isn't like this for everyone. I went to my first interview where I really didn't say anything, the assistant manager basically talked the whole time and I barely got a word in. He ended it by saying they'd call me back, although that didn't happen. I called after a few days but he was apparently unavailable. I kept calling but I never got him, I only spoke with him when I went shopping a week later where he just said I was not hired.

    I reapplied a month later, and I got a more standard inteview process. I met with someone else, and she was pleased with me. She scheduled another interview later that day, the second interview was with my former department manager. I was called a few days later and hired to work part time.

    Interview Questions
    • They didn't ask that many questions, certainly nothing extrordinary.   Answer Question

    No, the company is unionized so whatever you get is standardized for every employee.

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 6 days - interviewed at Stop & Shop in June 2014.

    Interview Details

    I applied online, and a few days later got a call to come in for an interview the next day. It wasn't exactly an interview though, because they just asked why I didn't go back to [previous employer] and hired me within 5 minutes of walking in the store. I already start next week. The only downside is minimum wage payment, but after 30 days your payment goes up by .25 an hour.

    They said $8/hr which was standard so I didn't fight it.

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Brooklyn, NY (US)
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took a day - interviewed at Stop & Shop in March 2014.

    Interview Details

    The interview process was fairly easy. I was called for an interview within a week of applying online. They had just remodeled the store so the experience was comfortable for me. My interview took approximately 1hour, the store is always busy which is good thing< which always means more hours for employees. The person that interviewing wanted to make sure i was knew about the grocery business which i did, as i currently work at another major supermarket for about 12 years now, so i was well prepared. I met the store manager, my dept manager and another assistant store manager whom were very nice to talk to. I was treated with respect which is all what i could have asked for.

    Interview Questions
    • The most difficult question i was asked was if i knew how to operate the electric jacks/forklift   View Answer
    Negotiation Details
    I was able to negotiate a salary that was acceptable to the amount of work i would be doing.
