    Photo Electronics Specialist Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Rice, TX
    No Offer
    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at London Drugs (Rice, TX) in June 2010.

    Interview

    I was called by the manager and requested to see him for an interview. The first interview took around 20 minutes where he asked me about my skills on photo / electronics. After two days, I was called in again for another group/panel interview where I was given situational scenarios of how to deal with angry customers and how I would react / respond to it. On the same day, I was given an on-line personality test and IQ/Intelligent test which took around 30 minutes to complete. Then I was called in again to submit all my pertinent documents such as proof of residence and tax account number. I was also given a form to fill in references of supervisors that I had in the past.

    Department Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Saskatoon, SK (Canada)
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 5 weeks. I interviewed at London Drugs (Saskatoon, SK (Canada)) in November 2016.

    Interview

    Applied online. Contacted by company recruiter a while later who had looked over my application / resume but also my LinkedIn profile as well.

    Arranged pre-screen phone interview with recruiter. Pre-screen interview lasted well over an hour. We talked a lot about the position, London Drugs as a company and went over my resume. Because I was applying for a department manager position we spoke at great length about my experience. Overall this part went fairly well. Recruiter invited me to take online company assessment and sent me links to it via email. I also had to sign off on a background check and provide detailed work references information.

    The online assessment takes about one hour and is timed. Very peculiar test in the sense that it tests you on things like repeating patterns and logic style questions. The timed questions go by very fast and you need to think fast as well. Some are only 30 seconds long and you cannot go back, it automatically advances to the next question. I found it fun but very challenging very much like an IQ test.

    It was after this that my references contacted me telling me a company working for London Drugs (BackCheck?) had called for work and character related references. I was excited to see that they had gone as far as contacting all my references.

    When I asked, the recruiter mentioned that there were 4 other candidates for this position being considered including one internal candidate as they always like to promote from within.

    I should also mention that after all of these steps, I would still have to have a face to face interview possibly with the local store manager.

    I thought my odds seemed good - 1 in 5 chance at the position, they checked my references etc.
    Then I heard nothing. One week. Two weeks passed. Nothing. I decided to follow up with the recruiter to see if there was any news about the position.

    Finally after 5 weeks of waiting (and only because I tried repeatedly contacting the recruiter via email and LinkedIn) did I get a response that they had given the position to the internal candidate. There was no follow up from the recruiter. I can understand in this day and age that many companies will not tell you anything if you don't get selected for an interview. But I had a phone interview, did an online assessment and had my background and references checked. The least they could do for me (and the 4 other unsuccessful candidates) was to let us know and not have to chase them down for an answer. Very disappointed in their hiring process considering they have a great reputation as a company.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at London Drugs (Edmonton, AB (Canada)) in November 2015.

    It was a ten to 15 minute conversation about my resume and experience. They did not ask any behavioural type questions and kept things very simple. We were interrupted several times throughout the interview by the managers phone and the radio she wore. It was not very professional in my opinion.
