    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at Meijer (West Chester, OH) in September 2016.

    Interview

    Met with the Pharmacist for interview. He was very upbeat and energetic. We went over my previous work history, and how that could apply to this position. We then discussed the pharmacy technician I responsibilities and duties. He then briefly gave overview of benefits, possible pay, and advancement opportunities. He then asked my availability and when i could come back for second interview with Meijer Management. He asked that i get FBI and BCI checks (out of pocket expense) done immediately to quicken hiring process. Went next morning for extra background checks, then that evening went for second interview. Was asked to go do a Drug test as soon as possible, done that evening. Told it would be about two weeks until i heard back as background checks can take a while to return. Received a call back in a week to come in for hire process.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at Meijer (Hamilton, OH) in September 2016.

    Interview

    It's a two part interview process with a manager (they use different titles than most) over a large area of the store, and the second is with one if the two top managers. The two who ran the store on the grocery side (Carl-Grocery, Ryan-Store) were absolutely two of the best people I've ever had the opportunity to work with and for. I was interviewed by a gentleman named Tim (dry or non-grocery mgr) and the second was Carl. Both are very easy to talk to, not intimidating whatsoever, but at the same time, k ow what to listen for in an employee who really values their worth. I was impressed with the place before I even got the job offer. Truly amazing people to work for.

    Utility Worker Interview

    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Meijer (West Chester, OH) in April 2015.

    Interview

    A few days after I filled out the application, they called me to conduct a short phone interview. Another interview was scheduled later that week in store. I was asked a lot of scenario questions that really had no relevance to the position, but the atmosphere was very laid-back and casual. I then had to go to another interview at the end of the week with the area manager and store manager. By their general attitude, I was convinced that I had the job. However, when weeks passed without contact from them about my background check, I decided to go with an offer I received from another grocery store. Overall, the interview process was easy, but I would have appreciated at least a call from them telling me that I did not get the job, because I thought that I had.
