First round with a senior manager for about an hour, mostly just walked through resume and got asked a few brain-teasers (e.g. why put product A on promotion? how to judge effectiveness of promotion?).

Cash Supervisor Interview

Cash Supervisor
Toronto, ON (Canada)

I interviewed at Shoppers Drug Mart in September 2010.

Interview Details – Dressing formally is definitely a plus even though it was an entry level position. Always have a firm hand shake and practice good eye contact skills. Small little interview etiquette such as waiting for the interviewer to be seated before you seat will also earn you points as you are showing respect.

Interview Question – Give me an example of when you dealt with a difficult customer.   Answer Question
