    Apparel Clerk Interview

    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Fred Meyer (University Place, WA) in September 2016.

    Interview

    The in-person interview was fast paced and has some really easy questions to answer. You must get past the third party system who screens all the applicants first though and they don't know anything about the company.

    Neutral Experience
    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.

    Bakery Clerk Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Kent, WA
    Declined Offer
    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Fred Meyer (Kent, WA) in June 2016.

    Interview

    Pretty simple. I applied online (resume, CV, availability, personality assessment) and received a phone call from their hiring people, which is separate from the store itself, a few days later. They asked me a few questions about myself and why I wanted to work at Fred Meyer. After that, they scheduled me for an in-store interview with the manager. They want you to get there 10-15 min early, and I would make sure you take into account possible waiting time in the customer service line. The in-store interview was pretty basic. Make sure you're prepared to discuss wages and salary; I told the manager that I was expecting minimum wage, but she actually said she typically pays above it, even for entry-level employees. We also discussed availability and expectations about the job.

    Honestly, you got this. Remain calm and generally agreeable during the interview, answer the questions to the best of your abilities, and you should get the job. The best pieces of advice I've ever received about job interviews was to eat beforehand (never interview hungry/hangry) and just go in assuming people will like you.

    Interview Questions

    • Explain one instance where you stepped out of your comfort zone. Describe a time where you demonstrated leadership. Why are you interested in working at Fred Meyer?   1 Answer
