Very Easy Interview

Gas Station Team Member Interview

Gas Station Team Member
Shelby Township, MI

I applied through a recruiter and the process took 4 days - interviewed at Meijer in August 2013.

Interview Details – Hiring, for me, was done through Michigan Works in Detroit. I attended a job fair of sorts, had an interview scheduled there before I left, and went to the store itself for the actual interview. I spoke with two Team Leaders before meeting the Store Director who offered me the actual position.

Interview Question – There wasn't much difficulty in the question department. One that threw me for a loop was when one of the TLs asked me for a time in my life where I had to step up and exceed expectations of me in order to aid the greater good.   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – I negotiated nothing. It's a gas station job and I was tired of having no money. The wages are set by the corporate office, so there'd be no reason to attempt to get anything more than what they're offering.

E/IV Photo Department Team Leader Interview

E/IV Photo Department Team Leader
Muskegon, MI

I applied online and the process took 5 days - interviewed at Meijer in June 2013.

Interview Details – Met with store director, very professional. First thing in interview he gave the store values and vision of the store. Wanted to now about me as a person and what I was looking for.Over all the interview was fine and very general (it was a pre-interview process) and said he would get back to me within the week, which he did with a followup letter.

Interview Question – The question of working on Sundays surprised me. He said we need to sometimes compromise our view on working on Sundays (which I have a difficulty with because of being very involved Sunday services at church).   Answer Question

I applied online and the process took 3 days - interviewed at Meijer.

Interview Details – Although I was offered the job after only one interview, the interview process generally has three phases, beginning with a department team leader, then possibly either the grocery or hard good lines team leader (depending on the position), then finally ending with a the store director.

Warehouse Associate/Distributor Interview

Warehouse Associate/Distributor

I applied online - interviewed at Meijer in April 2011.

Interview Details – The interview itself was the easiest interview I have ever been to. No difficult questions were asked, the worst was "why did you leave your previous job" which isn't difficult unless you left your last job on bad terms. Basically the most laid back interview I have ever had. Was given the job offer on the spot and didn't feel nervous during the easy interview after a few minutes. Only two questions were even asked, I did most of the asking.

Interview Question – Why did you leave your last job? What days would you like to work?   View Answer

Negotiation Details – Cannot negotiate higher pay. They just told me what I'd make and that was that.
