I applied online. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Fred Meyer.

Interview

I applied online on June 21 and was called in for an interview June 30. HR asked me a few questions over the phone and were mostly related to customer service and how I demonstrated some key characteristics in the workplace. I went in for my interview a few days later. The atmosphere was very relaxed and friendly. One person interviewed me while another watched. They asked the basic questions first, like availability and what my expectations for wages were. Then I was asked some more difficult questions, like what was risky behavior, if I would be comfortable taking risks, how I would handle a risky situation, if it was OK for someone to get angry at work. Just a lot of behavioral questions used to get a better understanding of the applicant. At the end of the interview I was told I'd be called by the end of the week if I was hired. Sure enough, I got a call the very next day and was offered a job. The next part involved me going in for paperwork and taking a drug test - that's it. Very typical experience. It wasn't stressful; they look for people who are confident and friendly. Make a lot of eye contact and smile and you'll probably be hired.

Interview Questions

  • What is your availability? What is your definition of customer service? What is risky behavior? Would you ever be comfortable taking a risk? What if someone insisted on taking a risk? What did you like about your first job? Dislike? How would you handle an angry customer?   Answer Question

    Interview

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!

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at Fred Meyer (Portland, OR) in September 2014.

    Interview

    Group interview with four other people. Took turns answering the same questions. It was extremely simple and their standards are not high. I didn't bother bringing in a resume or cover letter. Just look them in the eyes and be confident.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online – interviewed at Fred Meyer (Vancouver, WA) in July 2014.

    Interview

    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

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 dayinterviewed at Fred Meyer (Beaverton, OR).

    Interview

    I applied online to the Tigard, OR store and received no reply. A couple of weeks later the Beaverton, OR store (#035) called me to see if I would be interested in interviewing for a position there. I interview with the HR representative for about a half hour, during which she asked pretty standard retail and customer service related questions with a couple of Fred Meyer centered ones thrown in for good measure.

    Interview Questions

    • I don't remember any left fielders, but that was back in the Fall of 2009 so I can't be certain.   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    As I was walking through the parking lot to my waiting ride home, my phone rang. It was the HR rep offering me the position with a starting pay rate of $8.50 per hour, which at that time $0.50 above the minimum wage. She asked me if I would come back inside to take a quick mouth-swab drug test. I was introduced to the department manager, given a short tour of the department, and even a few of the employees. That all happened on the dame day without my having any customer service or cashiering experience whatsoever. I'm quite sure that that's pretty unusual and most likely wouldn't happen again, but it goes to show that if you're a polite, intelligent, and confident person you can get a job with the company pretty quick.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4 weeksinterviewed at Fred Meyer (Spokane, WA) in June 2013.

    Interview

    Takes many weeks for them to call you back. There are at least 20 people a day that apply. So make sure to call them so you can get your name on there list to call you. You apply online before they call and complete an assessment. When you go in, you are interviews first by the HR, and them by the department manager. A lot of times if you make it to the department manager you will get hired. Good Luck!!

    The wage is pretty straightforward. They base it on experience and offer you an amount. I took it as I was only part-time and going to school full time.

    Interview

    Process was pretty straight forward. They wanted to see some effort so they interviewed anyone that actually called to check on their application. Interview went great because I did some background on the company to get a general idea of what kind of questions they were going to ask. Lady their was pretty understanding of my lack of job experience.
