View Answers
How to Answer
Many jobs require some intermediate to heavy lifting. At Earth Fare there will be new stock coming in all the time; some light and some heavy. Assure the interviewer that you are physically capable of assisting with the receiving of stock. If you do have limitations, this is the time to disclose them. You do not need to get overly personal with health issues, but you do need to be upfront and honest. Focus on what you CAN do versus what you cannot.

Rachelle's Answer #1
"I can lift up to 50 pounds and do not have any physical restrictions. I am fit, injury free, and ready to work!"
