    interviewed at Fred Meyer in November 2013.

    Interview Details

    An online assessment subjected me to questions about my dislike for small talk, my ability to "know" what other people are thinking and my preference for social activities that involve big crowds. The questions asked during this assessment were identical to those used in diagnostic screenings for autism spectrum disorder.

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 5 weeksinterviewed at Fred Meyer.

    Interview Details

    The interview was not that bad, the hr guy was really nice. I applied online and got called in about two weeks for a screening interview then I was asked easy questions based on what i would do in this situation, or whats the best customer service experience was. He liked me so my application was passed on to the home department manager. I did not hear back for about a week and a half so I called back and asked the status of my application. I was called the next day to come in for interview with the home department manager. He was also really nice, and the questions were a bit harder, it was a friday and i was told I would hear back monday if i got the job. And I did!

    Division Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Application Details

    I applied through other source. The process took a weekinterviewed at Fred Meyer.

    Interview Details

    Position was posted internally. Regional interview first, Store director interview second. I would not have gotten the interview if I had not already completed training on and been signed off on an approved proficiency list to show that I already knew how to do the mechanics of the job. They were only concerned about personality and fit. The job is very process driven. I often thought that I spent more time managing the process than the people. I was not expected to have strong soft skills. They were expected to be learned on the job.

    Interview Questions
    • Emphasis was on many, many anecdotes about how I worked with people.   View Answer
    Negotiation Details
    I was definitely low-balled. The first to put out a figure loses. Wage per cent is the final decider in the stores and they will try to come in as low as possible. Stay strong and keep restating your worth.

    I applied in-person. The process took 2+ monthsinterviewed at Fred Meyer in September 2013.

    Interview Details

    There was only one interview; a group interview that was relatively painless. The woman leading the interview was extremely pleasant and handled the process well. It did seem to take an inordinate amount of time from my first interview to when they contacted me to offer the position.

    Interview Details

    I applied online and got an interview a few days later. I went to the customer service desk and told them who I was looking for and they had me sit down and wait. I waited about five minutes she came and took me into the break room where her office was and ask me a couple simple normal questions. I had a second interview a couple days later and then they asked me some more in detail questions about the job. I unfortunatky didn't get the position
