Starting the Process
Operating as part of the BI-LO umbrella of companies, Harveys Supermarkets maintains just shy of 75 stores in the American South. Job seekers interested in working for the grocery store chain often come across a simple hiring process. Comprised of very basic, face-to-face encounters with ordained hiring staff the interview process used to screen entry-level applicants and managerial candidates runs roughly the same. In some cases, the hiring process takes only a day to complete. Workers receive interview consideration based on information provided to hiring representatives at a desired location. Applicants then interview with the grocer, generally a potential supervisor, before receiving a formal job offer.
Topics Covered During the Interview
The ability to execute job duties serves as a deciding factor in gaining employment with the grocery store company. Job seekers must genuinely want to work for Harveys and demonstrate willingness to assume available shifts, which may include nights, weekends, and even holidays. Other topics covered during interviews may involve inquiries into physical strength for positions in stock or receiving or delve into sales and customer service skills for clerk and cashier jobs. Managerial candidates often respond to interview questions regarding abilities to manage large teams of workers in retail, or specifically, grocery store environments. Applicants should take care and arrive at interviews looking presentable and groomed appropriately. Added attention to personal appearances may improve chances of gaining employment.
