Customer Service Assistant Interview

Anonymous Employee
McAllen, TX (US)

I applied online and the process took 3 weeks - interviewed at H E B in March 2013.

Interview Details Three interview process. First interview is with the CCOM ( the person that makes your schedule and boss) they ask you what you know about the company and show you a book of things around the store and people working and ask what you see in those pictures. Second interview is with the Unit Director, he just asks things about you to get to know you better and judges your character and communication skills. Third interview is with the Store Manager, if you made it this far you've basically got the job, unless you make some kind of humongous error, he basically welcomes you to the store and shows you around.

Interview Question – Look at this book. Please tell me what you see in detail.   View Answer

Negotiation Details – You can usually only negotiate your hours. If you have school be sure to mention that and they will work with you without a problem.

Cashier Interview

Anonymous Employee

I applied in-person and interviewed at H E B.

Interview Details The interview process was in a group setting which I was unprepared for but quickly adjusted to. The interview was fun as it consisted of mock selling games where we were given an item to sell to the rest of the group. At the interview the manager requested my contact phone number and I was called immediately after for an offer.

Interview Question – Group setting was unexpected.   Answer Question
