Cashier Interview

Cashier
Vancouver, BC (Canada)

I applied online and the process took 3 days - interviewed at Shoppers Drug Mart in April 2013.

Interview Details – The hiring and interview process is on average. Just some behavioral questions and talk for about 20 minutes. No difficult questions. The hiring manager is a pretty good person. First, I get a phone call, then interview face by face.

Interview Details – Replied to Ad for a cashier on local Job Bank, brought my resume in personally and got a call the next day for an interview. Went into the interview with Manager.

Cashier Interview

Cashier

I applied online and interviewed at Shoppers Drug Mart.

Interview Details – I applied and heard back after about a month. I have many years experience as a cashier and full availability and was confident that I was the right candidate for the position. The questions were very typical such as, "what are your strengths and weaknesses", "describe and experience with a difficult co-worker and how you dealt with it", and "describe an experience with a difficult customer and how you dealt with it". I answered all the questions well and couldn't think of any reason why I would not get the position. They then told me that if I was hired, I would be guaranteed 3 hours a week (minimum wage of course) which obviously wasn't ideal but I said it was fine. They then told me they had eight interviews previously that day, and ten more then next day and then they would let me know in about a week. I thought it was pretty absurd to have nearly 20 interviews for a 3 hours a week cashier position, but I did not let them see how ridiculous I thought it was and left with a smile on my face. I didn't get the job, but am glad I didn't because I found another job that guarantees be 30 hours a week that is almost double minimum wage. Funny thing is, I know who got hired for the same position, she used to work with me and got fired after one month, yet I worked in the same company as a cashier for nearly 6 years until it closed and I was out of a job. I don't really understand their hiring methods.

Interview Question – They asked if I was comfortable with photography and wrapping.   View Answer

I applied in-person and the process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Shoppers Drug Mart in January 2012.

Interview Details – Dropped off resume in store. Received call 2 weeks later for an interview. I was confident I had the skills to the job. The interview was more whether I could fit with the manager's personality and the store team. After going through many interviews, I finally found my fit.
