    Interview

    I applied online and heard back within a week from the District Manager. We scheduled a time to interview at her district office later that week. It was a typical 1:1 interview consisting of mostly situational questions. She recommended me to interview with the District HR Manager. I had a 30 minute phone interview with him that was very similar to my first one.

    Store Manager Interview

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at Rite Aid (Southern Pines, NC) in September 2016.

    Interview

    Okay, I'm going to do things in reverse from the interviewer's perspective. I interviewed with Rite Aid almost ten years ago and the set up is a little different. All applicants are required to take an online survey, drug test, background check, and formal interview. Presentation and personality are key to getting in at store level. Smile and be attentive during the interview. Nervousness is expected, but if you talk quietly and act shy, managers will assume you will act the same way in front of customers. Don't be afraid to ask questions! Not only do we want to find the right associate for the position, but want to make sure it is the right position for you!

    Being an employee I had to go through the company web-site. I had to submit a refreshed resume'. I was interviewed by the District Manager. A few days later, HR called and I spoke with them and they asked questions that I felt had nothing to do with the actual running of a store. The questions were about situations and what I would do if put in that particular situation.
