    Postal Clerk Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Montreal, QC (Canada)
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took a week. I interviewed at Shoppers Drug Mart (Montreal, QC (Canada)) in September 2017.

    Interview

    Really stressing and awkward, the lady dressed really casually and constantly searches for her questions, and she shutters quite a lot. She didn't even look at me in the eye when she talks.Overall, unprofessional and bad interview.

    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.

    Merchandiser Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    No Offer
    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at Shoppers Drug Mart in June 2016.

    Interview

    Applied online, Received an email to go in store for an interview later that week. The manager who interviewed me was very nice. I was nervous before going in for the interview but the manager made me feel very comfortable and the interview was like having a regular conversation. The interview was around 25 minutes. I was expecting very short and simple questions like When are you available? What do you know about Shoppers? Though I was asked these questions, the manager also asked me a bunch of difficult ones (which I cannot recall at the moment) which I found quite hard to answer. Overall, the manager was expecting very specific answers and my answers were not exactly pinpointed to what the manager desired from me.
