    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Shoppers Drug Mart (Vancouver, BC (Canada)) in August 2015.

    Interview

    The manager was nice in-person and the e-mail correspondence was nice too; however, it was about a few days ago since we last correspond. We've been negotiating by e-mail but I like to meet him again in-person to speed-up the process.

    Interview Questions

    • What I would contribute to the store in my position, my availability, and my understanding about the roles of a PA. He was very polite and poised. I believe the in-person interview went well, and I hope that Shoppers Drug Mart would confirm the job position so that I could start as soon as possible.   1 Answer

    Negotiation

    I received an offer by e-mail but it was not yet confirmed. I would like to follow-up with him to decide so that I could start work as soon as possible. The negotiation was done by e-mail and I thought it would be more fun in-person. I would emphasize sales and marketing, a good asset to have for any employment position.
