    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.

    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.

    Interview

    Very laid back and relaxed. Was told the complete beginning to end training process. Was told how difficult the learning situation would be and that it was going to be the most stressful job I've ever encountered. And it is true.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Meijer (Adrian, MI) in April 2016.

    Interview

    Applied online. Maybe a week or so later I get a call to come in for an interview. According to one of the hiring managers I spoke with, they normally do a phone interview first, then have three in-person interviews starting with the department team leader, district manager, and store manager. They skipped the phone interview with me. The team leader was out of town so my first interview was with the district manager. And for my second interview (took place four days later) I met with the team leader and store manager at the same time so there was no need for a third interview. They hired me on the spot.

    Negotiation

    They saw on my application that I wanted at least $12/hourly. They said as a level 1 technician everyone starts at 10, but once you pass the licensure test to become level 2, then I could get $12, and there's always raises with each level advancement.

    Interview

    I was interviewed by three different people from three different departments of Meijer. The first interview was the head pharmacist, the next two were team leaders from grocery and store management. I was impressed by the professionalism and thoroughness of the questions. Once I was hired there was a little bit of rushing through paper work and being asked to sign things that you didn't have the opportunity to read. They said, "don't worry, you'll have access to a copy that you can read later". Other than rushing through the new hire process I felt the standard/quality of the team leaders in all the departments was high and that most employees who had been at the store for a long time appreciated the company enough to remain lifers.
