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

    I interviewed in-person - interviewed at Dollarama in May 2013.

    Interview Details

    Walked in off the street and spoke to a very nice female store manager who hired me within 24 hr. Unfortunately she was in a car accident with 3 days of that interview. When I started shortly after that, a new male manager had already started and immediately informed me that the company only hires Key holder cashier positions from within. I knew then my days were numbered.

    Interview Questions
    • No difficult questions. Very relaxed during the interview. I think it really matters who the manager is at the particular store   Answer Question
    Negotiation Details
    Make sure you get everything in writing. The wages and hours that I was told I would get, never materalized.

    I interviewed in-person - interviewed at Dollarama in December 2012.

I told her why not it's a fun place to shop. She then asked why I moved to that city? I said for a better life. She asked me what my salary expectations are I told her whatever the pay rate for there is.
