    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Rite Aid (Worcester, MA) in August 2013.

    Interview

    Hiring process was a bit dragged out. I had to keep post-poning the interview with the Store Manager because she was either going away on Vacation without telling me or was up to some other odd thing. I felt like when we actually got together to have the interview she wasn't as prepared as could be.

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 3 daysinterviewed at Rite Aid (Brooklyn, NY) in June 2013.

    Interview

    The general process can be rather organized and short, they expect a male applicant to be available for truck days/nights and overnight shifts. Younger female applicants can also expect this questioning for availability as older applicants usually work in the morning/daytime. Interview will be 1:1.

    Interview Questions

    • How long do you plan on staying with the company? or In what way did you ever help a customer achieve what they were looking for?   1 Answer

    Negotiation

    I was immediately told that I can work, knowing full well that I was needed for the job. The only negotiation there is to be had is in regards to scheduling (somewhat flexible but not 100%) and starting pay (depending on the store, union or non-union, this can be negotiated by only as much as $1 in NYC, from experience).

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Rite Aid (Tennessee City, TN) in January 2012.

    Interview

    I submitted an application, and I was contacted a few weeks later. The initial interview was very laid back, the Store Manager asked me a few simple questions (IE; Do you feel comfortable with the job requirements given that you have no prior experience?).

    Once the interview was concluded, I was given the drug test sheet. Once the background check and drug test came back, I was called in for training.

    Negotiation

    I had no previous work history, so I was in no position to try negotiating pay.

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at Rite Aid in May 2011.

    Interview

    It took an entire month for me to get hired. First you fill out a paper application and hand it in to the store manager. They love having their egos stroked. Dress nicely; they love that. Call a few days to a week later and they'll let you know if they want you to come in to do the assessment. It's a joke. Basic questions you really should know the answers to. After that, give it another week and call back. I did and it took them forever to process me. I went in for a simple interview, pretended to be nice and like people, and here I am, a not so proud employee of Rite Aid.

    Negotiation

    Absolutely no negotiation. As the manager said, I made "a measly $7.25 an hour."

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took a weekinterviewed at Rite Aid (Narragansett, RI) in December 2010.

    Interview

    The interview was brief. I was recommended for the job by a friend who already worked for the company. The interview was basically just to ask when I could start and what my availability was.

    Application

    I applied in-person – interviewed at Rite Aid (Quakertown, PA) in September 2010.

    Interview

    Filled out application in-store and was given a number to call for a personality test. Called in for an interview a week or so later for an in person interview. When I showed up I was asked taken in to managers office which is practically the size of a closet. Very lax enviroment; I showed up to interview in school uniform and was hired on the spot.

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Rite Aid (Bennington, VT) in March 2009.

    Interview

    I had an initial interview after I submitted my application. It was very professional and I was highly satisfied with the integrity of the manager. This particular manager I felt had a great understanding of what was needed from their employees and this was communicated to me effectively through the interview. The follow up interview deemed equally appropriate. It did take some time however for my paperwork to pass through however. That I am sure was just a technical difficulty and not the fault of any one specific entity.

    Interview Questions

    • The most Difficult question for me personally was when I was asked to define qualities about myself that I felt were outstanding. It is often very challenging to define yourself without seeming too over confident or arrogant.   Answer Question

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took a dayinterviewed at Rite Aid in July 2009.

    Interview

    It was very easy. I took a phone interview with a machine, and after I passed that I had a 1:1 interview. She didn't ask me any hard questions just the basics. Probably because it was my first job, and she knew that.
