    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4 days. I interviewed at Shoppers Drug Mart (Mississauga, ON (Canada)) in November 2016.

    Interview

    Applied online with CV. Had a phone interview which was more of a chat with two typical interview questions: 1. describe a time you dealt with a difficult situation and the other I cant remember. I was then called in for a face to face interview which was again very laid back. At the face to face interview there was a very easy small excel assessment to do.

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Shoppers Drug Mart in November 2016.

    Interview

    I submitted my resume online and got a call back about three weeks later. The interview was very easy, it didn't even feel like an interview but more like a screening. The manager brought me into a separate room for a couple minutes and asked me about my education, experience and availability. We then went back into the boutique and she gave me information about the job and the store.

    Cashier Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Newmarket, ON (Canada)

    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Shoppers Drug Mart (Newmarket, ON (Canada)) in October 2016.

    Interview

    I applied online, and then I got an email 2 weeks later asking for an interview. The store manager interviewed me in his office at the store. It was a pretty chill and relaxing interview. He asked me a few questions, and told me what was required of me if I were to work there. The interview only took about ten minutes. He told me that he would contact me in about 2 weeks if I got the job or not ( since I was the first person he interviewed for the position). He emailed me 2 weeks later saying I got the job. I was very surprised he wanted to hire me, even when I told him about my rugby and volunteer schedules.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Shoppers Drug Mart.

    Interview

    It was a lengthy, two person interview with both an assistant manager and the manager. Very friendly, very professional. I would really recommend practicing with a friend, or reviewing with yourself some common difficult interview questions beforehand. Make sure your head is in the game. They select at random from a sheet of questions in front of them, so make sure you're prepared for the hard stuff.
