    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 1+ weekinterviewed at Shoppers Drug Mart.

    Interview Details

    applied online and called me just two day after to have an interview for next week. During the interview, filled out an infomation form first and got interviewed by two people. Nothing unique, "why shoppers?" " what is your motivation?""how do you think of customer service?" "weakness and strengths" etc. And they also ask me when can i start and what is my preferred time.

    Very little professional questions. More of when can you start and I like you, lets put you on the schedule. It was a 15 minute chat and the next day I was called with the date I was to start. The Manager was young and not versed on questions or answering skills.

    Front Store Supervisor Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Oakville, ON
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 3+ monthsinterviewed at Shoppers Drug Mart.

    Interview Details

    The Interview:
    Stage 1: Meeting with the previous FSP
    ( waiting period of 2 months )
    Stage 2: After waiting 2 months, finally heard back from them via email, asking me to come back in for a secondary interview, which I had agreed.
    ( waiting period AGAIN 2 weeks )
    Stage 3: After another long wait got an email again, asking me to come in for the 3rd interview
    I went to my 3rd interview, oh wait the owner wasn't available to make it so, I can to re-schuele for the following morning, so I can came back the next day and the owner couldn't give me any proper attention, NEVER made eye contact not once with me.
    ( IT'S TYPICALLY LIKE THE OWNER NEVER CARRIED )
    Stage 5: Awaited to hear back, so I sent a Thank you letter to the employer, and the Store manager said that she told me the day after that I never got the job!!!! That they gave it to someone else inside the company. But they wanted to offer a floaters job of working all departments, ha ha NO!!

    Seriously A WHOLE WAITING TIME OF ALMOST 3 MONTHS TO HEAR YOU GAVE IT TO SOMEONE ELSE, TOTAL WASTE OF MY TIME... I was looking forward to hearing from them and getting into what I believed was a good company, but dealing with employees over email and discussing a career with the company isn't how to properly conduct business.
    Was very much let down, Shoppers Drug Mart ( Oakville )

    Quick chat. Not a formal interview. They do most of the talking about salary and duties. Very few questions really asked other than why do you want to work here, what is your availability.

    Replied to Ad for a cashier on local Job Bank, brought my resume in personally and got a call the next day for an interview. Went into the interview with Manager. Found the manager condescending.
