    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a staffing agency. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Duane Reade (New York, NY) in September 2016.

    Interview

    I went to a job fair September 28 and a day later (29) received a call to go in for store interview for the 30. Not sure if it went good or bad, meet some of the staff interviewed with assistant manager. I was told I'm waiting on the rest of my background check to be reviewed and that was on 7 of October. So almost two weeks and haven't heard anything back. Is that a bad thing? How long does the back ground check take?

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Duane Reade (New York, NY).

    Interview

    It was a group interview with about 10-15 other people. Everyone took turns answering the questions. There were 4 people (different managers of several stores) asking questions. It was about 30 minutes long and there was so many people that you couldn't really find a stand out candidate. I'm assuming they paid more attention to the resumes.
