    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took a weekinterviewed at Ingles Markets in March 2015.

    Interview Details

    very simple casual conversational interview. Made sure I had transport, checked my availability, asked about food service experience/retail. The interviewer left me with an assistant manager, whom I chatted with, while she sent my acceptance email to me. Came back the next monday, to sign papers, did a spit drug test. Much less embarrassing/messy than the usual shtick. Training days later, very early.

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 1+ weekinterviewed at Ingles Markets in September 2014.

    Interview Details

    I applied online for cashier and was contacted a week later by the Assistant Manager to come in for an interview. She was very nice and offered me a choice between cashier or a Deli position due to my retail background. It was an easy interview. She asked why I wanted to work for the company, why I left my last job, how long I expected to work there and availability, but it was mostly focused on my experience. She gave me a detailed description of the job and what would be expected of me. I was pleasantly surprised by the starting salary. Like all retail, experiences vary by store location but I had a good one at this store.

    Application Details

    I applied in-person – interviewed at Ingles Markets.

    Interview Details

    Seven minutes of nothing but fluff....No opportunities here. This was a triage interview for them. They're desperate to fill jobs, because they lose people as fast as they hire them. Terrible culture.

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 5 daysinterviewed at Ingles Markets in August 2014.

    Interview Details

    I applied online, heard from the floor manager 4 days later. He brought me in for an interview. They sit you down in the deli area to interview. Very casual, laid back interview. They ask what grocery store experience you have and what you would like to do. I was asked if I would like to work as a cashier, bakery clerk, or deli clerk. I chose deli clerk because it had the best pay and most open hours. They only offered 24 hours per week. He brought the Deli Manager over to meet me. They told me I would be started off at a higher rate of pay because I had 10 years grocery store experience. They told me to watch my email to complete the hiring paperwork. I received the email a day later and was given an offer of $8 per hour. I declined the position at that point.
