Cashier Interview

Cashier

I applied online and the process took 6 days - interviewed at Meijer in March 2014.

Interview Details – First I had a phone interview with the cashier team leader. Two days later I was called back for an interview with both the cashier team leader and the line team leader for the following day. I did a third interview two days later with the store director and that was when I was offered a position. Overall the questions are fairly standard

Cashier Interview

Cashier
Cincinnati, OH

I applied online and the process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Meijer in November 2012.

Interview Details – I had started my application on the website, but I never finished it. I got a call from a manager asking me to come in for an interview. My first interview was with a different department manager. He said he would call me back the next day if they decided to go ahead with a second interview. I got a call a week later, asking me to come back in to meet with a department director. When I came in, he wasn't available so I met with the department manager. She sent me directly back to my third interview with the director of the store, who hired me on the spot, and they moved me into the secretary's office to start the paperwork. Initially, it felt like they didn't want me, and then all of a sudden it was rushed through, like they were desperate.

Interview Question – If we call you asking for you to come in on your day off, are you prepared to drop everything you're doing to come in?   View Answer

Cashier Interview

Cashier
Toledo, OH

I applied online and the process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Meijer.

Interview Details – Know about the store; Meijer respects Family, Friendliness, Freshness, and Safety. Understand that you must card everyone that does not appear over 40. There will be three interviews with three different people before you know if you get the job. In the interview you will be asked general basic questions about yourself. You will be asked if you are easily intimidated by authority figures, how you have reacted in hard situations, and of course your availability. Surprise shoppers check on your performance if you get the job, so always be spot on. Meijer pays by the hour starting with minimum wage though it goes up based on the amount of hours you have worked, at milestones I suppose. Mostly be friendly, smile, card everyone, and help customers and fellow employees in anyway you can!

Interview Question – None, it was all pretty basic.   Answer Question
