    Pros

    Great people who are very supportive. Management accommodated schedule changes for students and people with families. Very customer focused and provided excellent service.

    Cons

    Compensation could have been a bit better. Company wasn't the same when new leadership came in and took over. It no longer felt like the family run business that it once was.

    Advice to Management

    Focus on customer service and providing best in class opportunities for your employees.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 daysinterviewed at Longs Drug (Honolulu, HI).

    Interview

    Applied online and got a call the next day. Process took less than a week. (they were short on cashiers which influenced the process). After a few questions about my previous experience (I was a cashier so he asked me about how the job was at my old store), the manager went straight through the company policy and general new hire information.

    Interview Questions

    • I had past experience so they asked how I handled various customer service situations, but I doubt they would ask anything difficult for this type of job.   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    No negotiation. I had previous cashier experience though, so the manager bumped the hourly rate up by 25 cents, which is nice.
