Customer Service Supervisor Interview

Customer Service Supervisor
Delavan, WI

I applied online and the process took 2 weeks - interviewed at ShopKo Stores.

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.

Interview Question – There were none! Questions were extremely easy.   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – There was no negotiation. Plan on 7.25 to 8.00 an hours regardless of your experience.
Deep regret I accepted employment with Shopko. Had MUCH more experience than interviewer and 95% of employees on staff.

Pharmacy Technician Interview

Pharmacy Technician
Lincoln, NE

I applied online and the process took 4+ weeks - interviewed at ShopKo Stores in December 2013.

Interview Details – I applied online. The pharmacy manager called to set up the interview. The interview consisted of behavioral questions about handling upset customers, multitasking, prioritizing, dealing with higher than normal work volume. It took about a week for them to contact me regarding the decision because I applied just before the Christmas/New Year's Eve holiday. Total time from application to start date was about a month due to the holiday.

Interview Question – I don't feel like any of the questions were really difficult. All questions were within legal limits and related to the job duties.   Answer Question

Appleton, WI

I applied online and the process took 1 week - interviewed at ShopKo Stores in August 2010.

Interview Details – Just a basic process- If you can show that you are more than capable and willing to work you more than likely have a job.
I also use to do some hiring-again if you have a good application, no spotty jobs, can hold a job you're good to go.
Shopko is very easy going, they make it a very welcome environment in the interview process. There is no worry to be had at Shopko

Interview Question – A time when you have shown great customer service-not unexpected but it really makes you think.   View Answer

Negotiation Details – I was hired as a part time cashier-very easy to work your way up as well. It's a great company to work for.
