    GM Clerk Interview

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took a weekinterviewed at Meijer.

    Interview Details

    Toured the store and talked with managers in three different departments, including the store manager. Questions were behavior-based for the most part. My conversation with the store manager centered around my school experience. I later heard that they were most impressed that I dressed up and was conscientious and articulate. All in all it was a painless and positive experience.

    Interview Questions
    • This was my first job, so questions about previous customer service experience were a challenge. They understood and didn't really care that I couldn't answer.   Answer Question

    Pharmacy Technician Interview

    Interview Details

    I was interviewed by three different people from three different departments of Meijer. The first interview was the head pharmacist, the next two were team leaders from grocery and store management. I was impressed by the professionalism and thoroughness of the questions. Once I was hired there was a little bit of rushing through paper work and being asked to sign things that you didn't have the opportunity to read. They said, "don't worry, you'll have access to a copy that you can read later". Other than rushing through the new hire process I felt the standard/quality of the team leaders in all the departments was high and that most employees who had been at the store for a long time appreciated the company enough to remain lifers.

    Interview Details

    The process has changed since I got hired several years ago. Got a phone call to set up a time for an interview. Went in and the interview lasted 20 minutes at the most. Only had one interview with my current manager and started within the next couple weeks. Now all candidates go through at least 2 or 3 interviews and start within a couple weeks.

    Cashier Interview

    Application Details

    I applied in-person – interviewed at Meijer.

    Interview Details

    Everyone was friendly and welcoming, which was what prompted me to want to work there. There is a lot of negativity and gossip which the management does not control. The interview process was not representative of the actual working conditions. I feel mislead that the majority of employees are bitter and sullen, not the work atmosphere I expected from my interview.

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Meijer.

    Interview Details

    A week after applying online I was called and had a phone interview that went extremely well. She then scheduled my second interview in person the same day with two managers. This also went over extremely well. The third interview was about a week later with the store director. Not a very friendly lady but it was a standard interview. As soon as she finished with the questions she simply told me I would not be hired because I was not available on weekends. I would have been understanding of this if it had not been on my application that I was not able to work weekends as well as being asked at the beginning of all three interviews! It was a complete waste of my time.

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Meijer in June 2014.

    Interview Details

    Very unorganized. Listened to interviewee rant on the phone during interview about her days off. Was asked for 2nd interview but she was on vacation when I showed up so i'd have to come back again. Ran background check on first job only to have to go back to that one and do it again because it wasn't done correctly.

    Interview Questions
    • Not really any difficult questions. Was asked if I would mind being cross trained on a more physical job to cover others.   Answer Question

    minimum wage plus union dues not enough. Had to go back too many times for the amount of mistakes from two different stores didn't bode well for the job.
