    Cashier Interview

    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a weekinterviewed at Fred Meyer (Clackamas, OR (US)) in June 2015.

    Interview

    It was one of the easiest interviews I have ever participated in. She'd interviewed one other candidate earlier in the day. After the initial conversation with me, she said she was interested in hiring me. She consulted with the customer service manager and the next day I received a phone call with a job offer!
    She only asked one formal interview question, before explaining dress code, job responsibilities and union fees to me.

    I applied online. The process took 4 daysinterviewed at Fred Meyer (Portland, OR (US)) in June 2015.

    Interview

    I applied online and a couple days later I received a call from an HR department and answered a few questions and they scheduled me for an in person interview the next day. The interview was with one manager and we talked about my job history and availability. It was very relaxed and friendly. I completed the mouth swab drug test and as soon as they hear back about that test and my background check, I have the job!

    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at Fred Meyer in June 2015.

    Interview

    I applied online and got a call a few days later. We had a short 5-10 minute over the phone interview and I was asked to come in for an in person interview a few days later. I showed up 20 minutes early and the HR and Produce Manager interviewed me. It was very laid back and easy. They didn't have my application with them and they somehow missed the part that I wasn't yet 18 and came up with questions on the spot. I got an email about 2 weeks later saying I didn't get the job.

    Deli Clerk Interview

    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a weekinterviewed at Fred Meyer (Grants Pass, OR (US)) in May 2015.

    Interview

    Manager was not there on this particular day and the HR person handled the interview. She was super nice, and I felt at ease during the questions. I tend to ramble and kept reminding myself internally 'be quiet'. The interviewer had a set of questions to ask that had been generated by my online quiz, they were not difficult but real time type questions. It was a pleasant experience and I was offered employment after.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 6 daysinterviewed at Fred Meyer (Vancouver, WA (US)) in May 2015.

    Interview

    Applied online on a Wednesday morning. Received a call from some third party recruiter about the job that same night to set up an interview. My interview was Friday morning, in store. I met with a lady from the HR department for maybe 15 minutes and I left with a pretty good feeling about my chances. I sent her a quick thank-you note Sunday in the evening to clear up the uncertainties she had expressed during our interview. Monday morning I got the call from her inviting me in to take my drug test and to finish the application process.

    Bakery Clerk Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate

    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online – interviewed at Fred Meyer.

    Interview

    Very easy- almost painfully so. After brief "typical" interview questions (goals, what I can contribute to the company, what kind of employee am I, where do I see myself in 10 years, etc) they brought in the bakery manager. She asked if I had ever baked before and explained that I would really just be using the oven to heat up frozen baked goods. Then I took a drug test and was given a date and time to come in for training. I was amazed at how easy it was- however, I know that they were almost desperate to hire for this position.

    Deli Clerk Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Accepted Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online – interviewed at Fred Meyer.

    Interview

    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.
