They will typically reach out to you over phone or email to start the interview process and schedule an in-person interview with a district recruiter or store management. From there its a fairly standard retail interview, talk about the positions open, your availability, etc. They'll preform an oral drug test during the in-person interview. If that comes back clean they'll have you fill out paperwork on the computer and wait for background to clear. Once that happens they'll contact you to put you on the schedule. If you're a new hire, you'll have to complete computer training and attend a safety orientation class before you can start your first day.

Most Safeways no longer employ strictly maintenance workers on a store level. You would be hired as a courtesy clerk, and expected to not only perform maintenance but bag groceries, help customers, and retrieve buggies. The process for interviewing for such a position is similar to any interview-you’ll be asked about your previous work experience, your willingness to follow dress code, and given a saliva-based drug test.
