Merchandiser Interview

Anonymous Employee in Vancouver, BC (Canada)
Accepted Offer
Neutral Experience
Easy Interview

Application

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

Interview

Relatively standard questions easy to answer.

After the interview:
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.

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 6 days. I interviewed at Shoppers Drug Mart (Toronto, ON (Canada)) in October 2016.

    Interview

    Very informal, brief, pretty straightforward questions. The manager was more interested in my availability and if I was capable of being competent on the job. Originally applied as a cashier but merchandisers were more in demand.

Took about 10 minutes and they asked for references. It was easy and they stressed that weekend availability is a must.

    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.
