    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Meijer (Warren, MI) in May 2017.

    Interview

    I applied through a career building site for a position with Meijer. After my initial application I was contacted about a week later by phone to come into the store for an interview. I went in and was promptly greeted and commenced my interview with the leader of the department I applied for and the store director. I would say hands down this was a very insightful and professional interview. It made me even more eager to be a part of the team.

    Analyst Interview

    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Meijer (Grand Rapids, MI) in March 2017.

    Interview

    Had initial phone interview with HR and was asked general questions about education and experience.

    Was invited to come into their corporate HQ in Grand Rapids. Interviewed with the director, the manager, and a potential colleague. Was scheduled for one more colleague but that person was out of office last minute and I was informed they weren't coming. Also had lunch on them in their campus cafeteria. One interview was very standard with questions and answers both ways. Another was very 1 sided where the interviewer just made me talk about how I would approach the job which was very unconformable as I could only know so much coming out from out of the organization. I feel like this is where I lost the offer because saying the wrong thing in such an open ended question is easy.

    Pros:
    Nice campus
    Director very knowledgeable and gave an enjoyable interview

    Cons:
    Company offered to pick up travel expenses. Filled out their form and turned it in but was never reimbursed.
    No show on one of the interviews and last time slot canceled.
    Too many interviews. By the end of it, the next interviewer had not much more to ask or add to information about company.
    Was given multiple time frames from different interviewers as to when their decision would be made.

    Pharmacy Technician Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Cedar Springs, MI

    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. I interviewed at Meijer (Cedar Springs, MI) in February 2017.

    Interview

    Pretty easy and quick with each interview. One interview with the pharmacy manager, then one with the director of the store. The only issue I had was getting a call back after my first interview because of the lack of employees. The place has been super busy. The director asked about 3 questions Ann's jotted down a quick note of what I responded then had me get my paper to bring with me to the drug tesy. All pharmacy techs get a pre employment drug screening. The background check and the drug screening each take about 3-4 days.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ weeks. I interviewed at Meijer in January 2017.

    Interview

    I am already a team member with Meijer so this was basically looking to get a promotion as some of our leaders are leaving for other stores. I applied through our HR portal and was interviewed. If you have experience, great! If not, don't even bother trying. You have to be specific otherwise it doesn't matter if you work hard or how talented you are, more than likely you won't get an offer. I'm rating it as a difficult interview because you really need to have been in retail or the like for a while and dealt with people along with coaching/mentoring someone or a team of people.
