    Interview

    The interview was with three different managers. The first interview was with the manager from the department you applied to, then the service lines leader, and final interview was with the store director. They asked simple questions such as what would you do if you had an upset customer. Once hired, you have to complete some testing and training on the computer which is easy, then you start doing the actual work.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Meijer (Swartz Creek, MI).

    Interview

    Three-stage process: One telephone, two face-to-face. Followed by an orientation meeting if hired. You shouldn't really lose any sleep over their process. It seems like what their trying to do, and rightly so, is weed out anyone who you probably wouldn't want to work with anyway.

    Interview Questions

    • Talk about a time when you made a decision that helped a customer.   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    No negotiation, just stick to what you really applied for, unless it doesn't really matter to you. I rarely see people transferring departments, and the new hire gets the hours no one wants. Hours are not consistent if you're not full time.

    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Meijer (Rockford, IL).

    Interview

    Meijer was opening two new stores in the Rockford area. I applied online. A month later I had a phone interview. He asked about my experience and I answered some situation questions. The phone interview took about half an hour. He said they were calling other people and told me that in a month Meijer would be doing a mass hire event. It was a week long event. They were hiring 600 people for both stores. I was called to make an interview appointment at the mass hire event. I had two interviews there. Both interviews were the same day and lasted 30 minutes or so. I was interviewed by store managers and was hired the same day. After my background check I was called to attend orientation. At orientation I received my work shirt and work schedule and started immediately. From the time I was first called until I was hired was about a month.

    Interview Questions

    • They asked a lot of situation questions. Like what would you do if you saw someone shoplifting? How would you handle an upset customer? They seemed to want to know more about the kind of person I was and not my lack of experience. The managers were very nice.   1 Answer

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Meijer (Springfield, IL) in July 2015.

    Interview

    I applied online and was called about 5 days later for an interview. They have a 3 interview process, the first one with who will ultimately be your manager, this is who you need to impress. If they want you then the other 2 interviews are basically a formality, there is a list of preassigned questions they have to ask but they didn't really care. I was offered a job on the spot, but the RAA (secretary) who runs background checks was out of town so it took a ridiculous amount of time to get called with my start date.
