It’s all about yourself. Pretty easy and straight forward. Product knowledge is a must so make sure to know a few things about product. They ask weird questions but I think it’s so lighten the mood.

I applied online. The process took 3 days. I interviewed at Trader Joe's

Interview

General interview with a manager. Questions revolved around customer service experiences and was asked to talk about my hobbies, where I see myself in 5 years etc. Had an interesting conversation with the manager, although the next day I was notified that I wouldn't be a good fit for the job. Manager mentioned to keep applying because that is what they look for, but I didn't want to jump through unnecessary hoops for this position..

Swift, they wanted to get to know who I was as a person, which is probably how the majority of trader joes workers are amazing people. I ended up crying because it got emotional
