    Assistant Front Store Manager - Process Lead Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate  in  Toronto, ON (Canada)
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Toronto, ON (Canada)
    Application Details

    I applied in-person. The process took a day - interviewed at Shoppers Drug Mart in June 2014.

    Interview Details

    Hiring at Shoppers is highly dependent on the Associate/Owner and Front Store Manager, and how they operate. The trend is to have all applicants go through the on-line HR questionnaire at this point. Walking in with your resume isn't likely to land you a job anymore.

    Hiring from within is where the majority of applicants come from for this position.

    For the most part, include key words that the algorithm will identify, be sure to have applicable experience in the retail field, and be cautious, because the software tracks the number of positions you've applied for, where, and when, so that your digital footprints are set in stone. Also, managers are able to flag your profile in a number of ways, including tossing it to the curbside.

    The actual interview is again dependent on the interviewer. Stick to interview 101 and you'll be fine. Stay concrete. Use real examples. Talk about process.

    Interview Questions
    Negotiation Details
    Depending on your experience, and your previous salary/position, you may be able to negotiate. This positions has a wage grid of $14-$23 depending on the size of the store. Small stores won't go above $16 usually.
