Cashier Interview

Cashier
Toronto, ON (Canada)

I applied in-person and the process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Zellers in October 2011.

Interview Details – submitted resume in person at customer service desk. Got called by HR manager within a few days, did short over the phone interview. In person interview set up for a couple days after. Went in and filled out an application while waiting for manager, then brought back to her office, met HR manager, and had interview. Manager was very friendly and personable, asking about school and future aspirations. Interview was formal but still laid back. Was hired on the spot and brought in for orientation a week later.

Interview Question – If there was a spill on the ground that posed a health and safety risk but you are dealing with a customer, what would you do?   Answer Question
