I applied online and the process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Meijer in May 2014.
Interview Details – Applied online, about two weeks later got call to make interview appointment. Made appointment that following week. Interview was quick, 3 behavioral questions. and was told to hear call back following week. The questions were typical, and pretty laid back. Didn't receive call back by date they said they would :(

Very Easy Interview
I applied online - interviewed at Meijer in February 2011.
Interview Details – First you get called in, then you get a one on one interview with the manager and the a one on one interview with the store director and the entire process usually takes forever.
Interview Question – What has been a difficult challenge you have overcome in work experience? Answer Question
I applied online and the process took 1 week - interviewed at Meijer in July 2013.
Interview Details – Interview process very fast and accurate. When they are interested in you they press forward with upper management until everything goes through. Normal two-step interview - first with your manager for the selected area, and then a second with the store manager. Questions were normal - "explain a time you had to deal with a difficult customer and what you did to resolve the issue", "what was your reason for leaving your previous job"
Interview Question – Where do you see yourself in 5 years with the company? Answer Question
I applied online and the process took 3 weeks - interviewed at Meijer in October 2012.
Interview Details – I applied for the position after returning from vacation in August. I received a call from the team lead on Oct. 3 first - she told me who she was, who she worked for, and then asked if I was interested in the position. I said yes, and she then proceeded to ask various questions, like background questions, situational questions and what not. At the end of the 15 minute phone interview, she told me she was going to pass my name along to her manager.
I received the call from her manager a week later, scheduling an interview for that Friday. Upon going into that interview on Friday, he asked me 5 questions since I had no previous work experience, and they were all very simple situational questions. Questions like, "Was there a time you had to do something you did not want to do, what was it, and how did you overcome the situation?" After the interview was completed (it was literally less than 15 minutes), he told me he was going to pass me along to the Store Director for final say/approval.
The next Tuesday, I received a call from the assistant asking me to come in the next morning. This portion of the interview was pretty simple as well, but he also asked what I knew about the company (which I knew some, from research on the internet), and then he asked if I knew what Meijer's values were, and since I had forgotten, he explained each of them - (customer-centered, competitive spirit, freshness, and "familyness.") He asked about 5 more situational questions as well, and then offered employment, pending the results of a background check. This portion of the interview process took about 40 minutes.
Interview Question – Can you tell me of a time you had a disagreement with someone else, and how you overcame the situation? Answer Question
Negotiation Details – No negotiations. Although Meijer is a union-based business in Michigan, and other states, in Indiana it is not. In Indiana, they offer quarterly incentives based on how well their employees portray the store, and help customers. As well as slightly-above minimum wage hourly payments.
I applied through an employee referral and the process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Meijer in December 2010.
Interview Details – I was interviewed over the phone and asked general questions like why i wanted to work there, what relevant experience did i have, how would i handle a difficult customer, etc. It took about 30 minutes. I then scheduled a in person interview for two days later. That interview was with the manager i would be directly under and two other managers. They pretty much asked me the same questions and the interview lasted about 30 mins. They then told me to go sit outside for a moment and then they came to tell me the next day i was to come back for an interview with the store director. The interview with the store director was pretty easy. He asked a few questions then asked me about school, told me about himself and said as long as my background check came back good i would get the job. The background check took about 2 weeks and then i got a call to come in and start work.
Interview Question – How would you handle a difficult customer? Answer Question
