How many calories are in a grocery store?9 Answers
Perhaps breaking up the grocery store into it's main categories and estimating the caloric density of each type of food may be the way to go? E.g. Frozen foods (high density), meats (medium), junk food and soda (high), veggies (low), non-food items (none), dairy (high), packaged foods (medium). Then estimate how space is typically allocated on these categories (10%, 20%, etc.). Then estimate how many such items can fit in, say a 10 ft area that has 3 positions (top, middle, bottom). Scale up the estimate as needed. Assign values to caloric density and at the least, you have solved the problem. Probably not the most elegant solution but it's what comes to mind immediately.
I would not consider these questions as hard or random at all..It would answer to How do you calculate how many calories are in a grocery store? like "I don't count at all..I am pretty thin. Actually I am trying to gain some weight so I just consume food like a trash bin.." what's wrong with that? Why would I even count that at all? I dont really care.. Some people might count and they could ansver to this question differently.
There are no calories in a grocery store. There are calories in food which is inside the grocery store, but none in the grocery store itself!
The answer is none. Calories are found in food, not stores.
A calorie is defined as: the energy needed to raise the temperature of 1 gram of water through 1 °C. The average grocery store is 4000m^2. Assuming average energy density of 200 calories/m^2 (Calories in a medium pizza) there should be 800000 calories in a grocery store.
Edible calories or calories in general? Because if the answer is the second we should use Einstein's formula: the weight of the grocery stores itself (in kg) plus everything in it * 1000 * c^2. The result then is divided by 4.16 (Calories/Joule) and woilà we have the number of calories in the store. If instead is the first answer, well, just approximate through the methods someone else explained.
My local grocery store (supermarket) has 10 checkouts operating during busy times. Assume on average it takes 2 minutes to service each customer. That's 30 customers per hours x 10 checkouts = 300 customers per hour. Assume the store is busy 4 hours per day, that's 1,200 customers and that accounts for 80% of the store's turnover so 1,500 customers per day. Assume on average each customer is buying enough food for 2 people, that's 3,000 people. People on average consume 2,000 calories per day but not all of it comes from the grocery store, let's say 75% does that's 1,500 calories. Putting it all together 3,000 people * 1,500 calories = 4,500,000 calories per day ... but wait there's more. If the store turns over stock on average every 5 days that means there's 5 days of calories on the shelves, that's 22,500,000 calories. Lots of assumptions but the answer seems reasonable
Other than the nobody likes a smart aleck answer of stores don't have them, food does, I would suggest the research needed to determine that would take longer than an interview would allow. It would take research to determine the size of an average store the amount of stock held at given times of the year and its type, and the average levels of calories in the food stocks. On a side not it has been widely reported that labelling of such products is not very informative, so might I suggest it be represented pictorially biased towards the mostly female psyches. Perhaps a collection of images and statements ranging from a picture of an attractive successful business women say Ashley Madison material? To a picture of Chuck Blazer running from the feds on a mobility scooter saying this is what your husband is going to be like in ten years?
Depends on the size of the grocery store and what products it stocks.
"Great news! I'd like to interview you for the PA to CEO role here at Symless. Before the interview, I'll need you to record a quick 60 second video (you can do this from your phone). In the video, tell us about a specific time which shows you really shining as a PA, demonstrating how crucial you are to your current CEO (or someone that you've been assisting). When you're done, upload it to YouTube. Set the sharing settings to unlisted so only I can watch it."6 Answers
I uploaded my video same day and received an acknowledgement and that I would hear back in 7 days. I emailed to ask when my interview would be as I wanted to go on a trip and didn't want to miss out. No response received. Very impersonal and arrogant approach.
Agreed very arrogant approach
I had the same situation. Very unprofessional company
Looks like they are really winning at interview processes!! Perhaps they will now rethink how they choose to treat people. Hopefully with some respect!
Same experience. Extremely arrogant and unprofessional attitude throughout. Lucky escape!
Agree! Exactly the same experience for me. They need to change the staff who do the interviews as the office manager is very u professional and disrespectful
How many times does the Earth rotate around its own axis while it makes one revolution around the sun?5 Answers
Little more than 365
The earth completes 1 rotation on its own axis approximately every 24hrs The earth completes 1 rotation around the sun approximately every 365 days So the number of rotations on it's own axis after completing 1 rotation around the sun is: 24 rotations per day x 365 days = 8,760 rotations.
one time more than the number of days in a year
365. Second response is funny: - The earth completes 1 rotation on its own axis approximately every 24hrs; + I add that one day as 24hrs; - 24 rotations per day.... Well I didn't know we had a 576hrs days :)
While it makes 365 complete rotations around the sun, to answer the question being asked, the answer would have to be that the earth is constantly rotating around its own axis.

You done x 10 years ago - why do you think you experience is relevant today3 Answers
explained that the circumstances were similar and the skills used then are still valid today
Nursing is such that skills you learnt 10 years ago are still valid today. There are always new technologies coming out and every now and again medications and current PROCEDURES and protocols become obsolete that on going self directed learning and seminar appearances are of utmost importance

* Imagine you were creating a search engine for events, how would you go about it?3 Answers
1) First the User base for a event search engine
1) First the User base for a event search engine a) People who want to post/create events on the website. Event organizers, career websites, concert halls, restaurants etc would like to create events etc. b) People who would want to browse this website for searching events. We would land an user on the event search web page, listing the most common events of her location. The browser can select location and then look for an event by a category (music, networking, food, art etc.) and/or event type (conference etc). The user can also initiate a keyword based search. The engine should be capable of a keyword initiated search, and apply any filter (category, event type etc.) on top of that. A search should bring back a list of results, having key information about the events, name, location, ticket information etc. The location when hovered over should show a map. As an integrated service user should be able to buy tickets for the event, read and write reviews for the event. People should be also able to create events on this website. They would be provided with a simple form, giving the name, type, location, time and description of the event. They can also sell tickets through this website. Revenue Model: Basic Search/Event creation on this website must be free. However if user clicks on a particular event , the event creator can be charged. In addition, if the user buys ticket through this website, a part of the ticket price should go to the search engine website. The search engine website should measure the following in order to gauge her business. 1) Number of people visiting/searching on the website. 2) Number of people positing on the website, and the event category and type they generally post for. How many of them are re-posting. 3) How many clicks do the users make per day. 4) What kind of events are most searched for in given geographical locations/time of year etc. 5) Ticket sales through the website. 6) How friendly the website it to outside search engines. For example, how many times it gets hit from a google.com, 7) How popular is the website for ticket sales, are there returning customers for ticket sales, and how helpful are the reviews.
Nice Answer !!
