    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 3+ weeks. I interviewed at Fred Meyer (Portland, OR) in January 2017.

    Interview

    Asked pretty basic retail questions that I was unprepared for. The interviewer thought he was a hot-shot because he has worked at Fred Meyers for 11 years. If you have no expectations for yourself and don't have any skills, you will get this job.

    Interviewer was friendly and concise. Left interview twice to help customers (This is a positive for me).

Explained several positions and the expectations that go with them. Business casual is perfectly acceptable attire.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at Fred Meyer.

    Interview

    I showed up early (maybe too early) and the interview was extremely brief, about five minutes. I was only asked three questions regarding customer service (how you treat customers, how you've been treated as a customer, etc). I thought I did pretty well but didn't get the job. The interviewer was very nice though.

    Cashier Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Kent, WA

    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

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

    Interview

    Was contacted by recruiter and asked customer service questions, then offered an interview at Kent (Midway) store. Arrived at interview on scheduled day and checked in approx. 20 minutes early. Was kept waiting about 25 minutes when interviewer (HR person) couldn't be located. Thought this was extremely disrespectful of me and my time and she should have rescheduled or at least communicated with someone what she was doing. I should have left. Finally, was told she was "observing" management interviews in store and but didn't bother to tell anyone so her unprepared assistant was sent to interview me. He asked usual questions read off a list and finished interview with, "don't take this personally, but if you smoke weed and do a drug test, the results won't come back until after you're hired and you'll be let go on the spot." I found this puzzling and told him I didn't imbibe since it's against federal law and I don't anyway. Again, unprofessional and I should have not interviewed with someone who didn't have the power to hire. Received impersonal "thanks but no thanks" email two days later. I have over 20 years of customer service experience, what do they want? Not impressed.

    Cashier Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Eugene, OR

    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Fred Meyer (Eugene, OR) in May 2016.

    Interview

    I applied online. About two weeks later, I was called in for an interview. I was excited because I had two friends who were in the same boat as me (getting their first job) and had no problem getting hired. It was a group interview, and I was the only interviewee that had dressed up and brought a resume. The other two were 40-something men in jeans. We all had to advertise a product to the hiring manager, and I pretty much commandeered the whole thing. I felt that I did amazing at the interview and I proved to be very competent. However, two days later I got the blanket email telling me that I didn't get the job.
