Application Details

I applied online – interviewed at Shoppers Drug Mart.

Interview Details

Quick chat. Not a formal interview. They do most of the talking about salary and duties. Very few questions really asked other than why do you want to work here, what is your availability.

Interview Questions
Negotiation Details
Pay is less than expected. I said what I wanted and they came back $2.00 less with no wiggle room.

    Application Details

    I applied in-person – interviewed at Shoppers Drug Mart.

    Interview Details

    Its a corporate company...so basically if you have a high school diploma, then you can get a job here.... it helps to have a knowledge of cosmetics and look the part. but some managers arent superficial...but just in case, look like a barbie, and be prepared to sell something random like a pen or a stapler. if you have a competant cosmetic manager, they will not ask you this.
    smile lots and sell sell sell sell sell. thats the focus. make sure you know what the store your applying at, what products they sell.
