    Cashier/Stock Interview

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 1 week - interviewed at Rite Aid in June 2013.

    Interview Details

    It's a pretty simple interview, you go in to the store, the manager sits with you, he asks you a couple of questions, whether you do drugs, when you can work, all simple questions. But after the interview you need to take an online test, once you take it and pass it you'll be sent to a facility where they will examine you for drugs. After that, if you pass both exams, you begin to work. This process takes about one to two weeks, depending on the manager and how quickly he moves.

    Interview Questions
    • None, the most "difficult" thing is the online test which is super easy.   Answer Question
    Negotiation Details
    You are not able to negotiate the pay, as everyone starts the same. But for night shift, you get 50 cents more.

    Application Details

    I applied in-person - interviewed at Rite Aid.

    Interview Details

    I applied in person with one of the managers and was lead to believe I would get the job only to be informed a week later that they merely shifted the workers to cover the shifts they needed. Few months later, I received a call telling me to continue the hiring process because they had open positions. This step was the online questionnaire. I failed to my surprise. Either choose strongly agree or disagree and see people optimistically because they ask questions like, "would some people steal if they knew they'd get away with it." Realistically, I answered yes to similar questions which I guess hurt my chances. It was disappointing to see something futile as that take away a job offer.

    Application Details

    I applied online - interviewed at Rite Aid in June 2014.

    Interview Details

    The process took about 5 weeks start to finish. There was an initial screening with a HR recruiter, immediately after that she had me do a survey. I was then contacted by the pharmacy district manager for an interview. After interviewing with him I was told I would interview with the HR manager, which I did the next day. Then I was called back to interview with the district manager. All the interviews were very informal and were more of a conversation. They made the process very ray and relaxed but they asked the typical interview questions.

    Interview Questions
    • How comfortable are you approaching people and stating a conversation?   Answer Question
    Negotiation Details
    The salary was given during the initial interview with the recruiter but during the interview with the PDM I was told that the salary would actually be higher than initially stated, which was true when the offer was made.
