    Applied in person and got a call for an interview the day after. The interview was the next day and was called into a room in the back.

    Cashier Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Charlottetown, PE (Canada)

    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Dollarama (Charlottetown, PE (Canada)).

    Interview

    Interview process did not take l long time. I think that they were more concerned with my student schedule to be sure that I would be available for shifts and that I was a reliable person who would show up for shifts. Honestly, reliability and courtesy are definitely important when working a cash/customer service role.

    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took a week. I interviewed at Dollarama (Montreal, QC (Canada)) in November 2016.

    Interview

    First interview by phone. Not very respectful, very amateur because it wasn't in person. She described the position and made me feel like it wasn't for me. As most HR the questions didn't go really far enough to analyze anyone.

    Import Clerk Interview

    Declined Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 4 days. I interviewed at Dollarama (Montreal, QC (Canada)) in October 2016.

    Interview

    The appointment was at 10.30am and I was late for 10min which I do admit I should be responsible for. But that doesn't mean they could keep me waiting for almost one hour for the interview. And the lady who's supposed to interview me was not in the office that day!!! I was told there wouldn't be any growth opportunities internally. And the interviewer was kind of rude.

    Reasons for Declining

    No growth, remote location (have to walk almost 20-30min) from metro station

    Short, quick, just like every other interview. "What was you favourite/least favourite thing about your last job?", "What can you bring to the company?", etc. Handed in resume, got a call back an hour later, interview next day and hired on the spot. No background checks, no tests, but also no training or manuals to read.
