The benefits were great even though I worked part-time. Most of the employees had been with the company for many years so it was a very welcoming community to work in.
There were too many corporate changes that resulted in multiple office relocations and extended commute times.

I applied through college or university. The process took 1 day – interviewed at Osco Drug (Plainfield, IL) in January 2009.
For Osco Drug, you can apply online at home or using a computer station at the front of the store. Its got your standard informational questions but also has a personaltiy type test with questions realting to retail like work and experiences. Some are very simple, like "what do you do if you notice a suspcious person who you think is shop lifiting" and they give multiple choice anwsers. I had a friend of my mothers take the test while i already worked there, he didnt pass it to some "standard" and never got an interview, its not hard and the guy was nice i heard. I don't know why he dindt pass, but I would just say go with your first thought. From there they call you for a in person interview. They look at your previous work if any and ask you simple questions, I worked for them when i was 17 and didnt have a job yet. Its nothing hard. From there if they like you theyll set up a time for a drug test at some local place. If you get a call about a drug test set up or they tell you there, you pretty much are hired..unless of course you do drugs...then your just a idiot. Theyll call you after the drug test and youll come in and get your uniform and start working with employees to show you the store and the basics of stocking / cashiering. In time youll learn it all and its a breeze.
The pay negotiation was never my cup of tea, They don't pay that well and most stores are Unionized. You can ask for a little bit more and just see what they say. Good luck.
