Store Manager Interview

Store Manager
Flint, MI

I applied online and the process took a day - interviewed at Rite Aid in March 2012.

Interview Details – I applied on Rite Aids web site for a store manager opening in Flint. A representative called me a week later and set up an interview with an area HR and training supervisor at the district office. The interview was the standard affair. I was asked about my work experience, education history and a variety of questions asking how I handled certain situations in the past. I visited the store on the application before hand and took notes on changes I might make which I think was a positive.
     Two questions that I fumbled on were "How would you attract customers?" and "How would you lower expenses?". What turned me off to the job was the compensation the interviewer said the position offered. $15.30 - $17.30 an hour 45 hours a week plus a bonus based on store performance. This is only slightly more than I make as an assistant manager at Walgreen's but with much more responsibility, so no thanks. I hope this helps someone out there.

Store Manager Interview

Store Manager

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

Interview Details – The process was good to begin with. The in person interview went well and interviewer was friendly and professional. The second part of the interview was in a conference room on the phone with a HR manager. It was not as professional as the first half of the interview. It seemed as though the HR manager was either distracted or didn't really care what answers you gave. The process of first interviews was very long, it lasted about 1 1/2 hours.

Interview Question – None of the questions were difficult, but the HR manager would not settle for one, two, or even three examples given to answer the questions.   Answer Question
