Co Manager Interview

Anonymous Employee

I applied online and the process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Rite Aid.

Interview Details – Got a call from HR, interviewed with HR manager then met with district manager. Ask the same old behavioral questions like "name a time where you failed to meet a goal?"... Very easy.

Interview Question – No difficult question. DM seemed to be easygoing. Entire interview was about 30 minutes   Answer Question

Shift Supervisor Interview

Anonymous Employee
Columbia, SC

I applied in-person - interviewed at Rite Aid in October 2012.

Interview Details – I had an informal interview with both the manager and district manager. I didn't try to negotiate the salary much because I knew from past experience that it would be between 9 and 10 bucks an hour but I needed a job so I took it and now I am applying everywhere I can to make the money I should for having a Bachelor's Degree.

Front End Cashier Interview

Front End Cashier
Ransomville, NY

I applied in-person and the process took 1 week - interviewed at Rite Aid in March 2012.

Interview Details – applied in march 2012. Took about three days to hear back and set up an interview for the next day. The interview was very laid back, just myself and the store manager. If the store you are applying for as an assistant manager than more than likely you will be interviewing with both in the office. Most important thing is to smile and be personable because they want someone who is capable of interacting with customers on a daily basis. They might ask you a basic math question to see how you handle counting money, if you end up making a mistake do not dwell on it, chock it up to nerves. overall very easy interview process. They will drug test you after and then you will have to take a "personality" test online but the questions are pretty easy common sense questions. But if you fail they will not be able to hire you even if everything else went great.

Interview Question – Give me an instance is which you showed excellent customer service and exceeded expectations?   View Answer

Negotiation Details – Honestly there is not much room for negotiation for a cashier position as far as pay goes your going to get minimum wage. but my experience has been that my manager was very flexible with hours and tried to give me as much or as little as i needed that he could offer.
