    Deli Clerk Interview

    Application Details

    I applied in-person - interviewed at Ingles Markets.

    Interview Details

    Seven minutes of nothing but fluff....No opportunities here. This was a triage interview for them. They're desperate to fill jobs, because they lose people as fast as they hire them. Terrible culture.

    Interview Details

    If you get asked to come into the store for an interview you pretty much get the job if you are decently dressed and not in something ridiculous. I did not have a interview they called and said that I was offered a job if I wanted to accept it.

    I applied in-person. The process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Ingles Markets.

    Interview Details

    I submitted a paper application that was looked at briefly by the manager. I was assked a few questions about my experience and was told that I needed to submit to a background check. After waiting for a week to hear from them, I went back in to talk to the store manager and was told they had to resubmit my background info because it had been lost. After I passed the background check I took a drug test that was submitted to another company. After passing this test I was hired and my training began.

    Starbucks Barista Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Clarkesville, GA (US)
    Application Details

    I applied in-person. The process took 4+ weeks - interviewed at Ingles Markets in December 2011.

    Interview Details

    The initial hiring process was exhausting for the fact that it took such a long time to get hired. I came in to the store to talk to the store manager and the Starbucks manager nearly everyday, and called the store manager most days that I did not come in and it still took a month to get hired. The Starbucks manager pressed the store manager daily, yet the hiring process took longer than needed.

    Customer Service Manager Interview

    Application Details

    I applied in-person. The process took a day - interviewed at Ingles Markets in August 2010.

    Interview Details

    During the interview process it was laid back and casual. I interview with one of the previous Customer Service managers. It was for a cashier position so it was basic questions such as are you capable doing basic math just in case you type in a wrong amount for the amount of cash that you are using. Another question was do you have issues with asking for donations? Are you uncomfortable with cleaning restrooms, and Then casual question to get to know my personality. that way they would know that i am capable of having a normal conversation with customers. the interviews are normally set up in their deli.
