Shift Supervisor B Interview

Shift Supervisor B
Warwick, RI

I applied online and the process took 3 weeks - interviewed at CVS Caremark in July 2013.

Everything was explained fully and the expectations were also outlined. Every manager from HR to Front Store was extremely helpful and very nice.

Shift Supervisor B Interview

Shift Supervisor B
Saratoga Springs, NY

I applied online and the process took a day - interviewed at CVS Caremark in February 2009.

Interview Details – The interview to become a supervisor was extremely easy because I was already a cashier. Two supervisors left the prior week so my store was in desperate need of supervisors, so i was approached by my store manager and offered a 2 dollar raise... Needless to say i took the job (w/out any interviews).

Interview Question – How did you handle a tough situation with a customer?   View Answer

Shift Supervisor B Interview

Shift Supervisor B
Macomb, MI

I applied through an employee referral and the process took a day - interviewed at CVS Caremark.

Interview Details – The interview process revolves around great communication skills, ability to provide great customer service, and your understanding of the role you will play within the store. Be prepared to demonstrate why you are the best candidate for the particular job and have some strengths and weaknesses to talk about, with examples of each. They will ask many of your 'typical' questions such as, where do you see yourself in the next 5 years? You would be well prepared just by reviewing common interview questions and practicing your answers. If you are interviewing for a management position, be prepared to be interviewed by both the store manager and district manager.

Interview Question – "Give me an example of a time you faced a problem, and how you solved it"   View Answer

Negotiation Details – I was not able to negotiate to be given any higher than their entry pay.

Shift Supervisor B Interview

Shift Supervisor B
Lancaster, PA

I applied online and the process took 1 week - interviewed at CVS Caremark.

Interview Details – The application is solely done online and more than a bit confusing to find. The system the managers have to look for the application in is complicated, so interviews take so long to set up. Don't blame the manager, the computers in the office suck and the horrible hiring website is stupid.

Usually only one interview.

Interview Question – What does customer service mean to you?   View Answer

Negotiation Details – No negotiating when I was applying for cashier position.
