Very Easy Interview

Cashier Interview

Cashier
Wilmington, DE

I applied through an employee referral and the process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Rite Aid in June 2011.

Interview Details – Don't remember too much, but I went in and got a application, turned it in to the store manager. He told me they weren't hiring at the moment, but he would call when they have a opening. Got a call a few weeks later, and was told to come in for interview. Wen't in for interview and I believe I got the job on the spot pending a background check. Most people I worked with had to take a drug test, but they skipped me on that. Probably a week or two later after interview, I started work.

Interview Question – I don't remember the interview questions. Probably just the basic, why do you want to work here, what do you expect to be payed etc.   Answer Question

Asset Protection Agent Interview

Asset Protection Agent
Medford, MA

I applied online and the process took a day - interviewed at Rite Aid in April 2013.

Interview Details – The interview was just a one on one interview where I only encountered the district loss prevention manager for Rite Aid. It was an easy interview he simply reiterated the skills and degrees that were listed on my resume and I just restated what the resume said. Since he was so impressed with my resume I did not really need to do anything but agree with the facts on my resume.

Interview Question – There were no unexpected or difficult questions because he simply read my resume and was very satisfied with it.   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – I should have negotiated the low amount of pay that I got because looking back I am sure I could have talked him into something more than what he offered. So I would recommend that you negotiate for a higher wage than what he offers but do not take it to far either, be reasonable.
