    Part Time Cashier Interview

    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 3 days. I interviewed at Rite Aid (Birmingham, AL) in December 2015.

    Interview

    I went into rite aid and filled out the application there and was given a slip on how to take an online survey. Super simple, basically asking about drugs and focused on if you would steal or not. The very next day I got a call back and was told to come in for an interview the next day. I wasn't asked any interview questions but was just told what she expected of cashiers and if I agreed to those terms. I did, and was offered the job paying 9$ an hour. I am super pleased with the hiring process as it was very simple and to the point.

    Assistant Store Manager Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Springfield, OR
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2+ weeks. I interviewed at Rite Aid (Springfield, OR) in April 2008.

    Interview

    The hiring process was started at a career fair. The HR manager got into contact with me afterwards to set up an interview time. This HR manager was very professional and asked a lot of questions about service related things that I had done in the past. They also asked about career ambitions and went over the career paths that they had. I then met with the store manager of the store they wanted to hire me on at and had another interview with the manager.

    Interview Questions

    Negotiation

    There was not really any room for negotiation. It was basically, "this is what we start at and you can take it or leave it"

    Assistant Store Manager Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Boston, MA
    Accepted Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I interviewed at Rite Aid (Boston, MA) in September 2010.

    Interview

    Manager was thorough in asking about my career objectives and why I wanted to work for the company. Honest about the demands of the position, need to be willing to work a varying schedule, and the importance of being reliable.

    Interview Questions

    • No real difficult or unexpected questions. The hardest part was knowing how much I could ask for in salary since store budget is based on sales, which would be difficult for an outsider to determine.   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    Conditional job offer> Drug Test> Background Test> Intake processing. I didn't really negotiate much because the offer was about what I was asking for at the time.

    Interview

    There were a lot of questions that wanted you to share times where you had to handle poor performers, drive sales, and implement change.

    Interview Questions

    • I don't remember any unexpected questions, they were pretty standard among retail management questions. Just know examples of when you succeeded in different formats and when you had to have difficult conversations with a team member.   Answer Question

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Rite Aid (Walla Walla, WA) in September 2011.

    First hired on as Shift Supervisor. Completed application and online personality assessment first, then interviewed with Store Manager.

For Assistant Manager position (applied internally as this was a promotion), I had three phone interviews with the store manager and then had to drive four hours to meet with the district manager in person.
