Cashier Interview

Cashier
Vancouver, BC (Canada)

I applied online and the process took 3 days - interviewed at Shoppers Drug Mart in April 2013.

Interview Details The hiring and interview process is on average. Just some behavioral questions and talk for about 20 minutes. No difficult questions. The hiring manager is a pretty good person. First, I get a phone call, then interview face by face.

Front Store Supervisor Interview

Front Store Supervisor
Oakville, ON (Canada)

I applied online and the process took 3 months - interviewed at Shoppers Drug Mart.

Interview Details The Interview:
Stage 1: Meeting with the previous FSP
( waiting period of 2 months )
Stage 2: After waiting 2 months, finally heard back from them via email, asking me to come back in for a secondary interview, which I had agreed.
( waiting period AGAIN 2 weeks )
Stage 3: After another long wait got an email again, asking me to come in for the 3rd interview
I went to my 3rd interview, oh wait the owner wasn't available to make it so, I can to re-schuele for the following morning, so I can came back the next day and the owner couldn't give me any proper attention, NEVER made eye contact not once with me.
( IT'S TYPICALLY LIKE THE OWNER NEVER CARRIED )
Stage 5: Awaited to hear back, so I sent a Thank you letter to the employer, and the Store manager said that she told me the day after that I never got the job!!!! That they gave it to someone else inside the company. But they wanted to offer a floaters job of working all departments, ha ha NO!!

Seriously A WHOLE WAITING TIME OF ALMOST 3 MONTHS TO HEAR YOU GAVE IT TO SOMEONE ELSE, TOTAL WASTE OF MY TIME... I was looking forward to hearing from them and getting into what I believed was a good company, but dealing with employees over email and discussing a career with the company isn't how to properly conduct business.
Was very much let down, Shoppers Drug Mart ( Oakville )

First round with a senior manager for about an hour, mostly just walked through resume and got asked a few brain-teasers (e.g. why put product A on promotion? how to judge effectiveness of promotion?). A business case on promotions followed. The second round was with more senior people and more a fit/character interview.

Cash Supervisor Interview

Cash Supervisor
Toronto, ON (Canada)

I interviewed at Shoppers Drug Mart in September 2010.

Interview Details Dressing formally is definitely a plus even though it was an entry level position. Always have a firm hand shake and practice good eye contact skills. Small little interview etiquette such as waiting for the interviewer to be seated before you seat will also earn you points as you are showing respect.

Interview Question – Give me an example of when you dealt with a difficult customer.   Answer Question
