Cashier/Clerk Interview (Neutral Experience)
Interviewed at Rite Aid
Interview Details – i honestly don't remember the hiring process but they are making me use a fifty word minimum so i am doing just that. i did like working for the company it was just not a position i wanted so i guess there's that.
Interview Question – everything was pretty basic. Answer Question
Cashier/Clerk Interview (Positive Experience; Easy Interview)
I applied through an employee referral and the process took 1+ week - interviewed at Rite Aid in September 2012.
Interview Details – you apply via paper app. and when you turn it in make sure you give it to a manager. They will give you a card with instructions to go online and fill out this survey type thing. If they give you the card, your almost guaranteed an interview. When you go in for the interview they will bring you into the office and start. it is a standard interview. Nothing to hard or anything.
Negotiation Details – i was able to negotiate pay because of my experience.
Cashier/Clerk Interview (Negative Experience; Average Interview)
I applied in-person and the process took 3 weeks - interviewed at Rite Aid in February 2013.
Interview Details – I had to go into the store and pick up a paper application. I filled it out and brought it back in and asked for a manager to turn it in to. I ended up dropping it off with a supervisor. I got a call back a few days later to set up a "meeting". The meeting was very simple, just asked me a few questions about my availability and why I wanted the job. It gave the hiring manager an opportunity to put a face to the application.
He gave me a slip of paper with a code on it to go online and fill out an employment questionnaire. They were basic questions like "Do you think stealing from your employer is acceptable?" obviously the answer would be no. I passed that.
I had to call back the manager 2-3 times over the next week before I was told they chose someone else for the position. A week after that I got another call back saying another opening came up and they invited me in for a 2nd interview.
They took me on a short tour of the store. I think the manager already liked me from our first meeting and my persistence on the phone. I talked about my retail experience, cash handling, POS, stock and other experience. He offered me the job on the spot, pending a background check and a drug test.
The background check took nearly 2 weeks to go through.
Negotiation Details – The store is union so pay scale is set. I was offered 8.50 an hour which is about 50 cents above minimum wage in my state so not too bad for a basic retail job. Pay raises are given based off hours worked not by how long you've been with the company.

I applied in-person and the process took 5 days - interviewed at Rite Aid in November 2012.
Interview Details – It was a pretty simple interview. The manager asked questions pertaining to like how would you handle a customer if they were giving you a hard time. What are your strengths and weaknesses and what would your previous boss say about you? He also asked me to name a situation where I went above and beyond for a customer and more questions along that line. I got offered the job in the end though.
Interview Question – There weren't any difficult questions or unexpected questions it was just straight forward. Answer Question
Negotiation Details – No negotiations.
