    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 5 days. I interviewed at Shoppers Drug Mart (Toronto, ON (Canada)) in October 2017.

    Interview

    Meeting process was fairly informal. HR person from Loblaws (who owns Shoppers) scheduled the meeting with the creative dept at Shoppers HQ. I went in and met the creative director and one of the managers. A few questions were asked in terms of my experience and knowledge with them then giving me a rundown of the job. Meeting lasted about an hour. Then I didn't hear anything back when I followed up a week and half later post thanksgiving. After several attempts I have not had a single reply to my inquiries. A simple confirmation of yes or no would have been appreciated.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at Shoppers Drug Mart (Toronto, ON (Canada)) in August 2015.

    Interview

    just like chatting with a friend I would say. very easy interview. I wear T-shirt and short to the interview, but I would say I should not do so. I came to interview 10 mins before. I look at myself in the mirror to check my makeup just to make sure I look ok. I shake manager's hand with proper strength (not too weak, or too strong). and we go to a small glass room then we start the interview. the manager asks me simple questions. very easy. the job is easy so the interview is easy too, all you need is a resume.

    Expected experience stocking shelves, assisting customers, and occasionally spotting theft however we are told to not place ourselves in harms way as it should be. Standard job for beginning employment overall not a horrible experience however I do wish there was more interaction with customers.
