Please describe your job title and primary duties.
Okay. So at FreshCo I was a cashier and so yeah, I’d cash customers out whenever my shift was, and sometimes I’d close the cashier and everything. So yeah.
How would you describe the application and interview process?
Well the application process, it took about a month or two, a little bit longer I’d say, but I mean, yeah. So when I got the call, I came into the interview. I was dressed professionally and two people interviewed me.
What questions did the interviewer ask during the job interview?
I guess one of the questions, what are your worst qualities? So for me, I mean, I’m a bit shy, so I said that I’m a bit shy and I like to make sure everything’s correct. So sometimes I’d ask a question again just to make sure that I knew what I was doing.
What other advice would you give to a job seeker looking to gain employment?
Go in with a positive attitude and although the waiting process is quite long, but don’t worry. If that job’s meant for you, then you’ll get it.
