    Cashier Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Halifax, NS (Canada)
    Accepted Offer
    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at Shoppers Drug Mart (Halifax, NS (Canada)) in November 2011.

    Interview

    An interrogation, and a lecture on why they don't want to hire students, and how everyone she hired was just terrible and unreliable. They do not like to hire students, but those are predominantly the ones looking for jobs in the city, especially retail and evening hours. Its not a job for someone who cannot do physical labor/standing. Cosmetics worked partly on commission. But the interview is her demanding to know why she should deign to hire you, and basically pleading your case. It wasn't a pleasant scenario. My resume is strong, but if you're a student, she will immediately decide you're unhireable. ( it was other staff who begged her to give me a chance)

    Negotiation

    There was no negotiation, its a take it or leave it job offer.
