Every Manager has a different way of hiring. The standard is a phone interview with a different manager and an in person interview with the manager of the store you are applying. There are a series of standard retail related questions. During my interview they had me demonstrate my attention to detail by asking me to point out the differences on certain product packages and had me properly stock the shelf with the same items. After you are hired they take time to train you for everything.Answered 22 November 2018
I was 16 at the time of hiring so take it as a minimum age of 16. Probably depends a lot on the manager and your maturity level.Answered 5 November 2019
Pants that have no holes, jeans are okay. No leggings or super tight fitting pants. Shirts must cover belly and have some sort of sleeve. No large logos or pictures on clothing. Must be able to turn and bend over comfortably without showing extra skin.
You do wear a company vest with a name tag on top of your clothing.Answered 22 November 2018
When you're working alone and it gets busy with the phone ringing at the same time as cashing out a long line & also having another customer on the side asking questions too.Answered 29 January 2020
Pretty basic questions from out of the stone age. Telephone prescreen is an overview of the in store interview.....typically a 2nd interview via telephone is done by another manager to give a second opinion on any candidate the hiring manager is interested in.Answered 23 January 2020
There are pros and cons to every retail job. Pet Valu provides their employees with awesome resources and great training on their products. Every owner is different, however, any store that I know of offers item discounts to their employees. Lots of dogs come in to visit/shop and a lot of stores have an in-store cat up for adoption. You are guarenteed at least 10 hours a week and get a 30 minute lunch if you work more than 5 hours during a shift as per government regulation. Sometimes things can get frustrating due to having smaller staff sizes (harder to get time off when you need it) and unreasonable customers... but this is no different than other small retail jobs.Answered 22 November 2018
