    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Duane Reade (New York, NY) in September 2019.

    Interview

    After you apply online through their website, you'll have to wait a few days to a week before you get a response of whether they're interested or not, usually through a call if they're interested, or through their hiring application website if they're not. Once they call you, this is when you choose a time and day for the interview. You must be at least 10 mins early on the day of. They'll ask you questions regarding your resume, and then they'll give you some scenarios, from which they'll judge if you are qualified for customer service. I believe they give you 5 scenarios/questions about your personality in all, and you must give an adequate answer for each. A few days after the interview, they will call you regarding if you will be hired or not.
