    Bakery Clerk Interview

    Application Details

    I applied online – interviewed at Fred Meyer.

    Interview Details

    Very easy- almost painfully so. After brief "typical" interview questions (goals, what I can contribute to the company, what kind of employee am I, where do I see myself in 10 years, etc) they brought in the bakery manager. She asked if I had ever baked before and explained that I would really just be using the oven to heat up frozen baked goods. Then I took a drug test and was given a date and time to come in for training. I was amazed at how easy it was- however, I know that they were almost desperate to hire for this position.
