    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks - interviewed 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.

    Application Details

    I applied online - interviewed at Meijer in June 2013.

    Interview Details

    The interview process was great, very straightforward and typical interview questions. I interviewed with 3 people, separately. The interview room was very small, so it was a little intimidating. The questions themselves were nothing out of the ordinary and I was able to provide good answers and examples. The hiring process did take some time, but was rather smooth once the initial offer was sent. I was able to negotiate the salary, which was greatly appreciated.

    Fashion Team Member Interview

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks - interviewed 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.

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Commerce, MI
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks - interviewed at Meijer in May 2014.

    Interview Details

    My interview process was extremely unprofessional. I was scheduled to arrive for an in-person interview, arrived, and was informed that my 1st interview was actually supposed to be over the phone. Regardless, I was interviewed by who would become my direct supervisor who proceeded to bad mouth the job and warned me of implied sexual harassment from male coworkers in the deli. My 2nd interview was extremely satisfactory, but was done by another department head. During my 3rd interview, I waited over 20 minutes for my interviewer to stop talking to other employees and leaving to deal with other issues. Overall, I found out that this is not even close to being an ideal workplace.

    Interview Questions
    • All questions were predictable, expected, or stereotypical.   Answer Question
    Reasons for Declining

    I believed my workplace would be unprofessional and unproductive.
