    Application

    I applied online – interviewed at Fred Meyer.

    Interview

    Very easy- almost painfully so. After brief "typical" interview questions (goals, what I can contribute to the company, what kind of employee am I, where do I see myself in 10 years, etc) they brought in the bakery manager. She asked if I had ever baked before and explained that I would really just be using the oven to heat up frozen baked goods. Then I took a drug test and was given a date and time to come in for training. I was amazed at how easy it was- however, I know that they were almost desperate to hire for this position.

    Interview

    Someone gets a call from HR and gives a recommendation to whichever department manager has the opening. Someone then gets to interview with the department manager and most likely another interview with a higher manager. If someone gets the job, they get a mouth swab test and a background test.

    The background test takes:

    FOREVER

    The process took too long for what the job was, I wondered many times for about a month if they were ever going to call me back with orientation details.

    I got the job and the management doesn't know what they are doing in any way and attempt to create an autopilot atmosphere with old closed door management techniques. The pay isn't bad, for retail, and the job isn't that bad.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    interviewed at Fred Meyer (Roseburg, OR (US)) in October 2014.

    Interview

    I was contacted almost immediately for an interview at the store. It was a group interview where the manager asked all in the interview 6 questions to answer without using the same answer that someone else gave. it was a difficult process some of the time. After the 6 questions had been answered by everyone in attendance, we all filled out a two page questionnaire and handed it in. Then we were allowed to leave.

    Application

    I applied online – interviewed at Fred Meyer.

    Interview

    The manager who interviewed me didn't have a list of typed questions. Wrote notes in a journal in pencil and allowed me to run the interview and tell her what I wished. When I repeatedly asked her (in different ways) about her goals and vision for the department she didn't really answer and seemed to get upset. Now I know it is because she had none.

    Negotiation

    She offered a wage and I accepted. It was a good time to move from current position. In hind site it was a terrible move.

    HR called the day after I submitted my application. Unfortunately she brought me in at the start of the electronic managers vacation. I was first interviewed on the 2nd and on the 19th got the "You got the job" call. Very long process and interviews were less than professional.

    Not current with procedure. I was hired a long time ago and the process has changed unable to comment. You can apply on line. The company does a lot of networking with family and friends. Referrals make some of the best associates.

    I applied online. The process took a weekinterviewed at Fred Meyer (Burlington, WA (US)).

    Interview

    Computor only application, then a phone survey, last is in person interviews. They call you to take a phone survey/ personality test. It asks several questions in different ways. I guess I passed and was called in for a 1 on 1 interview. The interview was very basic. We then met with the department manager, that went good as well. The Manager wanted me to start thenext day, but I gave two weeks at my other employer.

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at Fred Meyer (Anchorage, AK (US)).

    Interview

    You apply online, HR then looks through applications and calls in qualified applicants for a screening, if they pass that then you get an interview with the department manager or asst., they can then hire you on the spot or call you back if they have others. If hired you do a oral drug test on location, once the drug test and background come back good the HR will call you in for orientation ... unfortunately this process can take 2-3 weeks before you actually get to start working.
