    Deli Clerk Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Application Details

    I applied online – interviewed at Fred Meyer.

    Interview Details

    Someone gets a call from HR and gives a recommendation to whichever department manager has the opening. Someone then gets to interview with the department manager and most likely another interview with a higher manager. If someone gets the job, they get a mouth swab test and a background test.

    The background test takes:

    FOREVER

    The process took too long for what the job was, I wondered many times for about a month if they were ever going to call me back with orientation details.

    I got the job and the management doesn't know what they are doing in any way and attempt to create an autopilot atmosphere with old closed door management techniques. The pay isn't bad, for retail, and the job isn't that bad.

    interviewed at Fred Meyer in October 2014.

    Interview Details

    I was contacted almost immediately for an interview at the store. It was a group interview where the manager asked all in the interview 6 questions to answer without using the same answer that someone else gave. it was a difficult process some of the time. After the 6 questions had been answered by everyone in attendance, we all filled out a two page questionnaire and handed it in. Then we were allowed to leave.

    Application Details

    I applied online – interviewed at Fred Meyer.

    Interview Details

    The manager who interviewed me didn't have a list of typed questions. Wrote notes in a journal in pencil and allowed me to run the interview and tell her what I wished. When I repeatedly asked her (in different ways) about her goals and vision for the department she didn't really answer and seemed to get upset. Now I know it is because she had none.

    HR called the day after I submitted my application. Unfortunately she brought me in at the start of the electronic managers vacation. I was first interviewed on the 2nd and on the 19th got the "You got the job" call. Very long process and interviews were less than professional.

    Computor only application, then a phone survey, last is in person interviews. They call you to take a phone survey/ personality test. It asks several questions in different ways.

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Anchorage, AK (US)
    Application Details

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at Fred Meyer.

    Interview Details

    You apply online, HR then looks through applications and calls in qualified applicants for a screening, if they pass that then you get an interview with the department manager or asst., they can then hire you on the spot or call you back if they have others. If hired you do a oral drug test on location, once the drug test and background come back good the HR will call you in for orientation ... unfortunately this process can take 2-3 weeks before you actually get to start working.

    Application Details

    I applied online – interviewed at Fred Meyer in July 2014.

    Interview Details

    The interview process was 2 separate interviews, the first with a group of four others. Questions were basic, what is work ethic, describe your wok ethic in 3 words, why do you want to work for the company, what do you want to get out of your employment with Fred Meyer. The second interview was with the manager and asked the same basic questions. The third visit was for a drug test, pretty simple process. Took a few weeks from the first interview until the drug test

    Cashier/Grocery Clerk Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Portland, OR (US)
    Application Details

    I applied in-person. The process took a dayinterviewed at Fred Meyer in July 2014.

    Interview Details

    Interview was easy and straightforward. My extensive retail experience, although acknowledged, had little bearing on the offer as positions in my particular area of interest were unavailable. Wages were not based on experience but on a scale according to Union specifications, so there was no negotiating for a wage commensurate to my experience.

    Interview Questions
    • None of the questions that were asked were in any way unexpected. Most regarded availability, experience, and expectations.   View Answer
    Negotiation Details
    There was no negotiation. At the time of hire I absolutely needed a job and they were filling a newly vacated position.
