    Sales Associate Interview

    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    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.

    Interview

    Applied online, got a call back a few days later and had an interview scheduled. Interviewer was friendly and didn't ask me too many questions.

    Parcel Clerk (Central Checkout - CCK) Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Vancouver, WA
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Fred Meyer (Vancouver, WA) in March 2016.

    Interview

    I applied online and a few weeks later a recruiter called me and asked me a few questions, then set up an interview for the following day. The woman I was supposed to interview with was sick, so I interviewed with someone else instead. He was very chill and understood that I wasn't supposed to have some reason for wanting to work for Fred Meyer, since it is my first job. He offered me the position and had me do a drug test (oral). Don't go in for an interview if you have drugs in your system because you have to take the test right in front of them at the first interview.

    Overall it was a very easy interview. He didn't really ask me any hard questions. Most were just about my availability.

    Show up early (15-20 minutes) and dress nicely (I wore black dress pants, a dark button down shirt, and black dress shoes) and you will get the job.

    Seafood Department Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Portland, OR
    Accepted Offer
    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 12+ months. I interviewed at Fred Meyer (Portland, OR) in February 2016.

    Interview

    I filled online applications a few times over the course of a year and spoke to merchandisers who "needed people" but still took a year to get hired. No real sense of need and really hands off. The 2nd merchandiser was totally unprofessional no voicemail and I thought I ha the wrong number when he did answer. No phone etiquette. I thought I was talking to a teenager. The HR person was new and thus friendly and actually realized the opportunity to hire someone that would be a asset. The questions were standard issue. Describe a time when you had a problem and how you solved it yada yada. Offered a pay close to deserving only to call later with a job offer and much lower pay rate. Little crafty there!

    Interview Questions

    • Why do you want to work for us and why do you enjoy this type of work?   1 Answer

    Negotiation

    They offered me a reasonable pay only to come back with a much lower pay when they offered the job.
