    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at Fred Meyer (Seattle, WA) in September 2009.

    Interview

    I applied online and did not hear anything from them for approximately 4 months. They contacted me one day out of the blue and said that they wanted to interview me. At the interview I learned that this was for a temporary position through the holidays. I however knew that it would lead to a full time offer if I worked out. I had two interviews. One with HR and a second with the department manager the next day. Both interviews were pretty much the same interview that I have given on several occasions in other roles. Nothing out of the ordinary just a pretty standard interview. I immediately gave my salary expectations when asked (not before) and I was told what a more realistic salary expectation should be given the job I was going for. Honestly my impression was that the people who work there love their company and love the job but, I can tell it is not for everyone. It is fast paced non-stop retail and rarely do you get a minute to breath. You need to be ready for a full on retail experience day one there so if you have never worked retail it could be a bit much for some people if they are not used to it. Interesting side bar is their break room. It is a small oasis for employees and it is very nice. Dimly lit with couches and a TV and usually very quiet so that you feel like you got a break.

    • What do you think is the most important thing that we expect from an associate?   1 Answer

    Negotiation

    Was not able to negotiate. I was told that this was the maximum they could pay me for a starting offer. I had tons of experience so they offered me the top end of the range. I do not think given that their sales are down that they had much more to offer honestly.

    Interview

    It wasn't really much of an interview. They told me on the spot that I was hired and gave me a drug test. I stared work a week and a half later.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Fred Meyer (Portland, OR) in September 2013.

    Interview

    There was only one interview; a group interview that was relatively painless. The woman leading the interview was extremely pleasant and handled the process well. It did seem to take an inordinate amount of time from my first interview to when they contacted me to offer the position.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at Fred Meyer (Meridian, ID) in May 2016.

    Interview

    The interviewer was very friendly, courteous, and kind. The interview took place in an unused break or meeting room where oddly there was a customer (or off-duty employee) sitting for the first few minutes. Previous interviewees came out in less than ten minutes; I was in for well over 30 minutes.
