Clerk/Cashier Interview

Clerk/Cashier

I applied online and the process took 2 months - interviewed at CVS Caremark.

Interview Details – First, there is an online application which is easy except for the tedious "personality" quizzes that take up to an hour to complete. After submitting, in about 2 weeks I got an email to set up an interview. I called and was able to get one the week right after. The interview was very relaxed and quick; she asked mainly about my experience and how I would handle certain situations as well as why I wanted the job. After about a month of this, there is a training session for about 8 hours (one day), and then you can begin work.

Interview Question – How would you prioritize your workload?   Answer Question

Cashier/Clerk Interview

Cashier/Clerk

I applied online and interviewed at CVS Caremark.

Interview Details – I filled out CVS application online. It was super long and took two hours to complete. It consists of basic information, 25 scenario questions, 15 pages of personality questions, questions having to do with counting and correcting receipts and lastly, a brief overview of cashier responsibilities. I specifically applied to the new CVS that is currently under construction. The application took two hours to complete. A week later, I received an email asking if I am interested in getting an interview. I had a phone screening with a representative before receiving an interview day. She basically asked me if I applied for the cashier/clerk position, then scheduled me for an interview day and time. She asked that I dress professionally. The interview took place in a CVS that was different than the one I applied to.

After he asked me a couple of questions, he asked for my time of availability. He also asked if I would like to send my resumes to other locations besides the one I applied to. I said yes. He then proceeded to send my resumes to other locations. He warned me that if I receive a phone call from CVS, I would work the following day. I asked about the hourly wage. He said it varies depending on how much experience one has.

The next day, I received a phone call saying I am offered a cashier position at the new CVS. She also told me I will start my employment in two weeks. I filled out an application for a background check and was told I will be again contacted in a few days. She also mentioned because the new CVS didn't open yet, I will receive training at a different location.

Interview Question – The interviewer asked me frequently asked interview questions. The ones I remember him asking...
Why do you want to work here?
How do you define success?
What does customer service mean to you?
You are helping out a customer while another customer asks you for a particular item. What would you do?
What other businesses do you like other than CVS? Why?
  Answer Question

Negotiation Details – I was offered $8.00 an hour (minimum wage) due to not having a lot of retail experience.

Clerk/Cashier Interview

Clerk/Cashier

I applied online and the process took 2+ weeks - interviewed at CVS Caremark in May 2014.

Interview Details – I applied in the beginning of May, and I received a phone call in the middle of May from the head management of the CVS brand. They set me up for an interview as a part-time clerk cashier in my local CVS Pharmacy store, and said I would be receiving an e-mail with details. I got the e-mail about five minutes after the phone call, and it had the location, time, and interviewer's name. It also said to dress professionally and to bring a copy of my resume along. My interview was very informal. He did not even take a look at my resume, and didn't ask me any interview questions other than when I was available to work (I said I was available all the time) and if I would be willing to work at another location nearby as well if they ever needed help, which I also agreed to. He also said that this was only a fill-in position, even though the website said it was part time, and so did the man I spoke with on the phone. He made it sound like I would be getting the job, and he even said he was almost certain they could use me. He was supposed to call me within a week to let me know if I got the job, but I never received a call.

Interview Question – Would you be willing to work at another nearby location if they needed extra help?   Answer Question

Cashier Clerk Interview

Cashier Clerk
Miami, FL

I applied online and the process took 2 weeks - interviewed at CVS Caremark.

Interview Details – Process was generally simple. Applied online and took the personality test/quiz. Received a call from the Assistant Manager at the store asking for an in-person interview. After speaking with him about my 'perfect' personality test scores, he asked me about my high school experiences and what led me to apply for the position (as I was in high school at the time of interview). After that, he asked me if I'd like to meet with the Store Manager the following week for a second interview. After a brief meeting/interview with the Store Manager, I was offered the position.

Interview Question – Why do you want to work for CVS/Pharmacy?   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – No negotiation as it was my first job while in high school. Was offered minimum wage.

Clerk/Cashier

I applied online and interviewed at CVS Caremark.

Interview Details – The application was pretty basic at the end you had to take an assessment , which consisted of questions on how you would react in certain scenarios , and questions about your customer service skills. I called the next day and the manager asked me to come in for an interview. The interview itself was very quick and a tad unprofessional. Instead of going to an office and sitting down to talk we went by the magazines in a store full of people and had the interview. The manager described the tasks i would have on a daily basis and told me the pay rate i would receive. I was pretty much over qualified for this job (previous supervisor) so i was hired on the spot. After that you go to a training day at another store for 7 hours, you learn store policies, about Extracare, etc.. Then you are ready to start.

Interview Question – What is customer service to you?   View Answer

Negotiation Details – No negotiation, the manager told me a solid rate and that was it.
