Rite Aid Wellness Ambassador Interview

Rite Aid Wellness Ambassador
New York, NY

I applied online and the process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Rite Aid in February 2014.

Interview Details – Phone interview, then 2 interviews afterwards. the first in person interview was very easy and formal with both the manager and pharmacy manager. The 2nd interview is a bit frustrating because they send you to the main branch which is very difficult to get to, to make it worse they show lack of interest in interviewing you, the human resource manager was more interested in reading her emails then pursuing the interview, very unprofessional! I wasn't even given a fair shot, the interview was rather short instead of being an hour long. Complete waste of time!!!!!!

Interview Question – Name a time when you encountered a conflict with another coworker and how did you handle it?   View Answer

Shift Supervisor Interview

Shift Supervisor
Middletown, NJ

I applied online and the process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Rite Aid in January 2013.

Interview Details – Applied online. Was called for an interview within 2 weeks of applying. HR Manager was very helpful and direct throughout the process. She showed much enthusiasm and interest in me being an addition to their company and also gave personal advice on growing within the corporation. Interviewed with District Manager and then offered the position the next day. Contacted by the store manager 2 days later for background & drug screening. 6 days after the background check and drug screening, I am expected to come in to complete paperwork and begin training as a Shift Supervisor with the Rite Aid corp. Overall a great experience from all employees of this company. Very smooth and straight forward process.

Interview Question – All questions were simple and straight to the point. All questions were about my current position as a Customer Service Manager at a leading competitor. Was given information about the position that was being offered and spoke about opportunity for growth within the company. Only 1 interview question was asked, along of the lines of naming strengths and weaknesses. Simple question, keep it professional.   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – Offered position at $11/hr. Was about to wiggle out another $.25 for commuting. I'd say the pay rate is pretty as is/very little room for negotiation.
