I was contacted about a week later to come into the local hen for an on-site interview. This interview was as much a job orientation as it was an interview. I was shown the ropes of the trade and before I left was told I could start within the following week.

    Application Details

    I applied in-person – interviewed at H E B.

    Interview Details

    First step was that I put my application online, there was a group interview a little annoying because it was more public. The group interview had a bunch of managers looking back now feels like a bunch of people looking at your weakness almost trying to make you trip somewhat reflects the management system now.

    Accelerated Software Development Program Interview

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at H E B in October 2014.

    Interview Details

    I had submitted my application online but had also handed them my resume during a local career fair. I believe the application online was enough to get through to the first round as I was very brief in talking with them at the fair.

    Round one consisted of a non-technical phone interview which lasted roughly 15-20 minutes with maybe 8 questions. Here's the 4 I remember:

    What are your future goals?

    Why do you want to work at HEB?

    What's been your favorite class?

    Give an example of a project you've had to use C++?

    Called me a few weeks later when I applied online, got the first interview set up and was all about getting to know me and identifying what was going on in photos in a picturebook, passed the first phase and then a few days later got a call to meet and be interview with the store director. I asked a lot about the activities of the store and is it on a daily basis. It was all about getting to know me and how I respond to challenges and would be proactive in the store events. Then on the spot the director asked me to allow a background check and then when it came back they would schedule me for new hire paperwork. Was so excited! Came back three days later and signed all the paperwork during orientation and then was trained and then scheduled to work within a few days.

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Austin, TX (US)
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took a dayinterviewed at H E B in October 2014.

    Interview Details

    I applied online after I was in the store and saw signs up that they were hiring. I received a phone call the next day from a lady who asked if I had time to answer some questions. She had all my work history in front of her, and asked me if I worked at each place. Which I thought was weird because it was all yes/no questions. "I see you used to work at this restaurant, is that correct?" - "Yes Ma'am" - "And before that you worked at this place, correct?" - "Yes Ma'am"

    After "verifying" my work history, she asked me what I thought it took to be a cashier at HEB. And then she said "fabulous! Well I'm doing pre-screen phone interviews, and will call potential candidates by the end of the week for in-store interviews. If you don't hear anything by Friday, you can assume you didn't get the job."

    Ten minutes after this phone call I received a rejection email.
