Shift Supervisor B Interview

Anonymous Interview Candidate

Application Details

I interviewed through a recruiter. The process took 4+ weeks - interviewed at CVS Caremark in December 2012.

Interview Details

Well, I was initially recruited by a District Manager. I had met him and his wife at a marina restaurant I was working at. They had a boat there at the marina and would come into the restaurant for dinners. After six months of knowing them he then asked me if I wanted to do something different. Given the restaurant was going to be sold shortly I said yes. He then took my information that day and I received a call from the District Manager in the area that I lived in, Since the area he was in was too far for me to drive. She then scheduled an interview with me. My first was with the Store Training manager. It was just a few questions and basically getting to know each other. I was told I basically had the job since I was recruited and they all knew everything they needed to know since I had apparently taken care of most of them at the Marina. Then I had the second interview with the DM who basically just asked to take the drug test and backround check. The whole process took about a month given it was the holidays and some of hr were on vacation. They made me and offer after a month and I took it.

    I interviewed in-person. The process took 2 weeks - interviewed at CVS Caremark in October 2010.

    Interview Details

    Filled out forms and a questionnaire (to determine personality type). Store manager then pulled up the job application and questionnaire results. Manager looked mostly for previous retail experience and for any red flags brought up by the questionnaire. If everything looked acceptable, the candidate is sent to another store for training / orientation while drug test results were processed.

    Shift Supervisor B Interview

    Application Details

    I interviewed online. The process took 2 days - interviewed at CVS Caremark in April 2013.

    Interview Details

    I submitted my application originally for a cashier position at an older store and within a couple days I received a phone call about an interview. I showed up in semi business attire not really knowing what to expect for my first retail job. Jeff was interviewing me and it probably lasted 15 minutes with just questions about my previous work experience and I expressed how I have always been in a supervisor position at my previous jobs. He mentioned maybe making me a key holder (shift). After I got the job training was pretty unimpressive. You go to a training store for 5 hours and read a manual. Your first shift at your home store is usually a 4 hour register training.

    Interview Questions
    • Mostly just questions about prior customer service experience.   Answer Question
    Negotiation Details
    I was expecting $9.00/hr for a cashier position. He offered me $8.50 and I accepted that. It wasn't really a negotiation though.

    Interview Details

    Went through 3 interviews; they ask you simple questions like "do you know how to manage people, explain." They don't always put you in the store you applied for, only to the store that needs help. Its pretty quick.

    Get a high hourly pay, they say 12 dollars is the most they can give shifts but there wrong.

    I applied online and got a request for an interview within a few days at the store. I was interviewed by the store manager and he asked me questions about my sales experience and ability to multitask. In addition since it was a managerial position there were questions as to how many people I managed in the past. After the interview the manager told me right then I was hired.
