    Wellness Ambassador Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Application Details

    I interviewed online - interviewed at Rite Aid in June 2014.

    Interview Details

    The process took about 5 weeks start to finish. There was an initial screening with a HR recruiter, immediately after that she had me do a survey. I was then contacted by the pharmacy district manager for an interview. After interviewing with him I was told I would interview with the HR manager, which I did the next day. Then I was called back to interview with the district manager. All the interviews were very informal and were more of a conversation. They made the process very ray and relaxed but they asked the typical interview questions.

    Interview Questions
    • How comfortable are you approaching people and stating a conversation?   Answer Question
    Negotiation Details
    The salary was given during the initial interview with the recruiter but during the interview with the PDM I was told that the salary would actually be higher than initially stated, which was true when the offer was made.

    Application Details

    I interviewed online. The process took 3 weeks - interviewed at Rite Aid.

    Interview Details

    Being an employee I had to go through the company web-site. I had to submit a refreshed resume'. I was interviewed by the District Manager. A few days later, HR called and I spoke with them and they asked questions that I felt had nothing to do with the actual running of a store. The questions were about situations and what I would do if put in that particular situation.

    Initially, fill in paper app, best off taking it to manager and introducing oneself. Next they have one do an online questionnaire. Do not be honest here, tell them what they want to hear. Hopefully they call and offer then you drug test. This simple process can take 2 to 3 weeks.

    Interview Questions
    • On the online questionnaire they ask if I thought rite aid employees looked for other employment opportunities. The answers are multiple choice. I chose "probably". I was initially excluded on the bases of this one answer.   Answer Question

    Anonymous Employee in West Seattle, WA
    Application Details

    I interviewed in-person. The process took 3 weeks - interviewed at Rite Aid in February 2014.

    Interview Details

    I walked in one day in West Seattle and asked for an application. There were two interviews. One for the meet n' greet, as well as talking about insurance hours available, experience, and to inform me of the drug test I would have to take and another interview for the hire. Overall it was good. They had an issue with the computer finding me, like, my manager was all ready to hire me, but there were minor setbacks.

    Interview Questions
    • Nothing, really.
      I braced myself for anything and got less than what I was expecting. Overall, it was a quick, easy, and emotionally painless.
