    Human Resources Representative Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Queens Village, NY
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at Rite Aid (Queens Village, NY) in March 2011.

    Interview

    Initial communication with the company was good, but once the actual interview happened, things got rather disorganized.
     I was interviewed by several members of management who seemed to have no experience at all at interviewing. Questions were asked from a script that were entirely unrelated to the position I applied for.
     I was told that I was a "Guinea Pig" for a new interview process that they were trying out. The process took HOURS, in which I was confusingly shuttled from group to group, and it seemed that they were not at all interested in my responses, rather, they were using me to learn how to hold an interview. Nobody even looked up from their scripts!
    I had hoped that the HR Manger who was in charge of this stressful mess would have at least had the courtesy to drop me an email telling me that they had chosen another candidate, but unsurprisingly, this never happened. I never heard back, and my followups were ignored. It left me with a poor opinion of this company, and pity for a friend who has to work for them.

    Interview

    Have to bring resume in to pharmacy manager in person, they talk about website but they'll just give you a paper application if their interested. Minimum 2 interview at least 2 weeks or more process. They weren't hiring full time, just part time floater which they described as guarantee minimum of 16 hours per week maybe more but max of 35, but insisted you to be flexible enough to not have any 2nd job for if they do call you for more hours Rite Aid would have to be only priority despite only guarantee of 16 hours per week. Said union job w/benefits, wages for northern California bay area start at $14.05/hr and every 1000 hours would increase a little like $14.70/hr up to $16/hr. Floater position would mean regularly work at 1 Rite Aid but could be called any day to work anywhere from Dublin to Vallejo to Woodland/Sacramento, CA area but said Rite Aid would help pay for miles & gas beyond regular work location.

    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at Rite Aid (Pottsville, PA) in May 2015.

    Interview

    The interview process was pretty easy. You go talk to the store manager and if she likes you, you then have to interview with a district manager at a later date. If he likes you then they do multiple background checks on you, a credit check, and they check your driving history. I applied over a month ago and the process is still on going. I've actually given up on Rite Aid.
