    Food Clerk Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Camby, IN
    Accepted Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Meijer (Camby, IN) in March 2015.

    Interview

    The first interview was a phone call where they went over the questions from the applications including your past experiences. The second interview was in store. Where they went over the questions again and then proceeded to a 3rd interview. The third interview is where they asked for my future plans such as schooling etc. they went over the days i ahd filled out in my application as my availability and told me it was unacceptable they would not give me weekends however they would flex for school. this was because there were too many people asking for weekends( which later turned out to be a lie, there was practically no one there) they also told me the original position they had promised me for the morning hrs from our first phone call was no longer available and had been given to another woman.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 4 weeksinterviewed at Meijer (Grand Rapids, MI) in February 2015.

    Interview

    Process was overall very good, they got back to me after a career fair and had initial interview right away. I passed this round and then invited on site for three interviews with HR and other managers. They were very easy to talk to and interested in learning about me and filling in the blanks where I did not understand things.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at Meijer (Woodhaven, MI) in February 2015.

    Interview

    Interview process is very easy what I don't like is how long the background check process takes and their lack of communication after the 3rd interview i have received like 3 more job offers since my last interview with them and all they can say is that they dont know how long the background could possibly take. It is so unorganized and unprofessional.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online – interviewed at Meijer in February 2015.

    Interview

    Three separate interviews, all with similar "explain a time when..." type questions. Overall pretty simple. It's best to stay relaxed because they don't seem to expect spontaneous responses. Just smile and be honest.

    Cashier Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Fairborn, OH
    No Offer
    Neutral Experience

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 5 daysinterviewed at Meijer (Fairborn, OH) in February 2015.

    Interview

    First they call you and give a phone interview, and if they pass you on you go to two more interviews in-person at the store. The interviews aren't hard, they're somewhat casual, the questions are easy and they grade your answer on a scale of 1 to 3; it's a lot of problem-based thinking, so you describe a problem you had and how you dealt with it and whether it worked out well and what you learned; it's all pretty simple. However if they decide not to hire you they won't tell you; if you want to call to call to check up on your application status and you even have phone number and get a manager on the line, they'll probably take down your number and say they'll call you back and then you won't hear from them again if they don't plan on hiring you.

    Easy Interview

    Application

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

    Interview

    It takes three interviews and hours of mindless tests that teach you nothing and is very redundant. You have to talk to the store director, your department manager, and another manager and they ask you tons of questions that don't really mean anything. As long as you can answer, you are all right. The computer training process is dumb and you will pass. They never give you any real training for the job.
