Assistant Manager Interview

Assistant Manager
Cortland, NY

I applied through an employee referral and the process took 3 days - interviewed at Rite Aid in February 2011.

Interview Details – I had been a clerk for some time, and had been offered an assistant manager position. I had gone through all the levels of training and had received accolades for my years of dedicated service. I had transferred to a new store, and that is where I first saw a change in the company. Consistency isn't much a staple for RiteAid, but I dealt with it as I very much wanted to stay within a company that my mother had worked at for so many years and she too brought me into it.

Interview Question – ambition   View Answer

Reason for Declining – JUST BECAUSE OF THE LACK OF PROFESSIONALISM. It's a small cow-town, and management was just incredibly stupid to actually be management. I've seen the way they handle themselves and the way they mistreat supposed valued customers- to a point that they've actually stalked a customer to a point where he became rattled and did something without thought and they had him arrested. When they realized that he actually had done nothing wrong, they falsified police depositions, and are destroying this you g guys life. All because management wanted to impress upper management regarding a recent string of thefts involving credit card fraud. We had "just" had a meeting about this very issue and this one manager was out for blood. She was so bad that it was like she thought everyone was saying, doing, something wrong. I heard her tell a detective her recount of a recent arrest and I was so angry that I severed my ties with the store and felt both disloyal as it was a family tradition, so to speak. I've since left and have applied to school. My goal is to now become a pharmacist, as that too is in our blood. My grand daddy was one and it's how my mother followed behind. Unfortunately, I can no longer work for this company and it may be too much of a reach, but I'd like my own store if possible so I can share all that my grand dad had taught me. WITH PRINCIPLES tat we are in business to help keep our family healthy. Not so we can throw our customers under the bus. And my grand daddy NEVER called his family customers. I think that's the decline. That and the stupidity of this one store- the current assistant manager is filthy and toothless- not what you'd holding a front high position. The manager should be retired! Her husband just had a heart attack and after meeting her you'd have to ask was it as a result of her being so horrible. It goes against my principles as far as my commitment towards being a healer, but there are just bad people out there. And those bad in high positions destroy it for us all. Bad/stupid... and dirty. I believe manager's should have all their teeth. Don't you?

Assistant Manager Interview

Assistant Manager

I applied through an employee referral and the process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Rite Aid in July 2008.

Interview Details – Rite Aid is still very much of a good ol' boy company. Interviews and promotions are handed out based on who you know within the company or management chain. There is a phone screen and usally a 1:1 interview with the district manager for management postions. Background checks and drug screens the employment offer, as a whole the interview process is fairly painless.

Interview Question – If you were and animal which one would you be and why?   View Answer
