How do you deal with a busy workplace?

2 Answers

Focus on the customer in front of you and complete the interaction before moving on - if you leave an unresolved TPR or DUR or CMD you or a co-worker will pay the price later Stay aware of the numbers so you know if there's a bottleneck and compensate by shifting your priorities or quoting realistic delivery times Less

Manage your time and try to be organized. When it gets hectic or overwhelming, don't be scared and ask for help. Communication and multi-tasking can help you through a busy situation. Less

Why are you applying in this company

2 Answers

To have more knowledge... About medicine...

To help other people in terms of their health issues.

NONE, the most ridiculous interview, barely asked me any relevant questions. Mostly wanted to gloat about himself and his pharmacy. Had such a big ego, even went as far as to insult a medical student who couldn't do his test, which by the way he doesn't even give you enough information to complete. He threw in a "what are your strengths" just to cover his bases it seemed for it to be considered "an interview".

Do not apply to work for this place or at least make it fully clear that you are looking to get PAID when he calls you, because he doesn't make the volunteer pitch until you are sitting in front of him. I didn't think it was something that needed to be said when you apply for a JOB posting but clearly this person is looking to scam people. Shameful. Less

Shoppers Drug Mart

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 Answers

Patient teaching, drug delivery, cashier, and assisting. These were the roles that we've discussed and about my willingness to learn about the many different products that Shoppers Drug Mart carries. Shoppers is a very good company to start with and to grow with, career-wise. My overall experience with the interview by the owner was very good and I was really relaxed. Less
