I applied in-person and the process took 2 days - interviewed at Ingles Markets in May 2009.

Interview Details It was very easy. I just went in to the store and inquired about jobs. The manager took my number and then called me back to set up an appointment.

They basically look at you and if you seem like a respectable person they give you some paper work to fill out. If you dont have a felony then you are guaranteed a job.
