    Cashier Interview

    Application Details

    I applied online – interviewed at ShopKo Stores.

    Interview Details

    Barely interviewed me and just asked me about availability and previous experience. When I said i had none they told me that was okay. The only question that was hard at all was "do you have any questions for me?" Because that's a trick question to ask if you were listening and actually care about the job. Said that they'd call me back the end of the week for orientation in the beginning of the next week but still haven't gotten a call. Called back once and the hiring manager was gone, and today I talked to her and she said she'd call me back in half an hour 2 hours ago.

    Certified Pharmacy Technician Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Belvidere, IL
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at ShopKo Stores in July 2014.

    Interview Details

    The interview lasted about 10 minutes. I believe the drug test took longer than any questions asked. The Pharm mgr did not ask any behavioral type questions, only about experience. I had no experience other than a 120 hr Internship & was offered the position on the spot. I then waited for the background check from the headquarters which took about 5 days. Made an appointment with the store manager to go over all the company details & set up pay deposit. Immediately after the 2 hours with HR, I was working 4 hours in the pharmacy.

    Interview Questions

    Interview Details

    Minimal questions. Not impressive. More often than not, incompetent people were hired by upper management. Seemed if one was a warm body you were hired. Also false promises made during interview that my many years of experience would be brought to attention of DM. This NEVER happened.

    There was no negotiation. Plan on 7.25 to 8.00 an hours regardless of your experience.
