    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4 days. I interviewed at Pet Valu (Reading, PA (US)).

    Interview

    Interview process took about 2 hours but it was fine. More than half of that was just discussing the culture of the company and both of our work history. DM was very laid back and easy to talk to.

    Interview Questions

    • The SAT like scantron part of the interview was a little too much. I understand the point of assessment tests like that but it was too many questions that could be asked when you apply for the job. Instead of sitting in a back room…   Answer Question

    Sales Associate Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Englewood, OH (US)
    No Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ weeks. I interviewed at Pet Valu (Englewood, OH (US)) in April-2017.

    Interview

    Walked in and told them I was here for an interview. Arrived 15 minutes early and waited 20 for my interviewer to arrive, in the meantime I walked the store. The manager who interviewed me was from a different location and was very upbeat and friendly. The interview took place by the fish which was actually pretty uncomfortable just standing there. We talked about past jobs and why i wanted to work there and they said they had more interviews but they would call me no matter what. They never called.
