    Application

    I applied in-person. I interviewed at Shoppers Drug Mart.

    Interview

    I walked in one day with my resume, handed it in to a cashier, heard nothing for about 1-2 weeks, walked back in and was told my resume was "lost" or not even heard of in the first place by another cashier. So I gave them a new one and was called within 3 days after that to come in, once I came in I shook the owners hand and was asked a few questions while standing for about 2 minutes and was hired on the spot by the locations owner who was very kind and polite.

    Cosmetician Interview

    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Shoppers Drug Mart.

    Interview

    I went in and had my interview with the cosmetics manager. She was extremely friendly and easy to talk to, which was really nerve calming. She didn't ask any formal questions, just went over my resume and asked about my experience in makeup work I'd done in the past. She was really interested and enthusiastic about my makeup work and pretty much said I'd fit perfectly in the position, but never called.

    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at Shoppers Drug Mart (Vancouver, BC (Canada)) in June 2017.

    Interview

    I applied online for the position of Merchandiser. 2 days later a manager called to ask for an interview. Interview was very informal. Manager was dressed very informally, therefore made me feel at ease. There were no real "interview-style" question. Just wanted to know my availability and background. Lasted about 15minutes. I was told at the end of the interview they would call me back in 2 days if I got the job or not.

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took a week. I interviewed at Shoppers Drug Mart (Edmonton, AB (Canada)) in May 2017.

    Interview

    It was really casual, basically walked in and had a conversation with manager. Pretty much confirmed everything on my resume and wanted me to elaborate on a few other things. They didn't ask any of the basic questions like strengths or weaknesses, just seemed like they actually wanted to get to know me. Everything went really smooth and the interview didn't last more than 15 minutes.

    Beauty Boutique Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Bowmanville, ON (Canada)
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Shoppers Drug Mart (Bowmanville, ON (Canada)) in April 2017.

    Interview

    1) The online systematic application on official website shares 1 cover letter for each position/location you applied to (which I find not so professionally practical, how do you address who it is for then?)

    2)LONG wait to get a reply. Rejection received via automatic reply, but does NOT state which position you applied to get rejected (so if you applied online to more than 1 position...you won't know which one you got rejected)

    3) Account/Profile made on Shoppers' official website states on submitted application that "if Delete button does NOT appear for the application, it means the job is no longer available". Applications I submitted, still have the Delete button on, meaning the job is still available. (Then from which position did I exactly get rejected from?!) Plus, the hiring ad for those positions are still posted on job sites and on official website. Basically got rejected without even an interview, when I'm a certified artist/stylist.
