Lloyds Pharmacy Interview Questions

  1. 1.

    In our retail stores we take pride in our merchandising and displays. Do you consider yourself to be a creative person, capable of making an attractive retail display?

      If offered a position at Lloyds Pharmacy, Ltd., you may be asked to contribute to the design and construction of store displays. Do you have examples of displays that you have created? Do you have unique ideas that you can share with Lloyds Pharmacy in regards to their current merchandising? Let the interviewer know if you are interested in creating displays and if you have any special skills to contribute to their design and construction.

      Jordan's Answer #1

      "I have a strong creative flair and enjoy creating attractive displays. I think I have enough experience in retail to understand what attracts a customer and what prompts them to purchase, and I'm eager to learn even more! The displays I have seen in your stores are fascinating, and I would love to be a part of those creative projects."

      Jordan's Answer #2

      "I believe that with some training, I could very easily create some attractive displays. I have a natural flair for the creative and look forward to exercising that."

  2. 2.

    What are your salary expectations?

      Do some research to determine how you can expect t be compensated for your work at Lloyds Pharmacy Ltd. and use your current earnings to discuss your expectations. Be open and honest. Transparency is the best choice when salary based questions arise.

      Jordan's Answer #1

      "I currently make $15 per hour and work between 25 and 35 hours per week. I'm hoping to stay in the same range or slightly higher."

      Jordan's Answer #2

      "I currently make minimum wage, and I'm happy to begin a job at Lloyds Pharmacy in the same range. I'm hopeful that my hard work and dedication to the team will earn me a promotion or pay increase after some time. Does Lloyds offer any merit-based bonuses or pay scale increases?"

  3. 3.

    How do you handle a situation where your supervisor does not properly communicate information to you?

      The environment at Lloyds Pharmacy Ltd. is fast-paced; though supervisors have the best intentions, some information may fall through the cracks. Describe your communication preferences and tell the interviewer how you have handled interactions with supervisors in the past.

      Jordan's Answer #1

      "Whenever I have had a supervisor who does not properly communicate with me, I try to learn their style of communication and emulate it. Sometimes you have to relate to others in their style to be understood."

      Jordan's Answer #2

      "I have had great supervisors in my previous positions; however, if faced with a communication challenge like this, I would ask the supervisor how I could improve communication between us. Rather than placing blame, I believe it's always more effective to ask for growth recommendations."

  4. 4.

    Tell me about a time when you made a suggestion requesting change in an organization.

      The most successful organizations are always growing and adapting to better serve their customers, and Lloyds Pharmacy Ltd. is no exception. In addition to being able to handle change, can you also recognize when change is required and be confident enough to present that to your organization? Talk to the interviewer about a time when you were able to suggest a change in the workplace.

      Jordan's Answer #1

      "Last year when I was managing our weekend shift, I noticed a pretty solid opportunity for us to save on overtime hours. I created a presentation and gave it to my manager who took it to upper management. The changes were implemented, and I was very proud of the suggestion that I made."

      Jordan's Answer #2

      "When I began my most recent position at a family-run business, the owners operated based on trust and didn't have a loss prevention plan. I suggested that we install a couple of cameras inside the store to deter anyone from stealing. So far, we have seen a 56% decline in the overall loss."

  5. 5.

    Do you have reliable transportation?

      If you are offered a position at Lloyds Pharmacy Ltd., it's important that your managers can count on you to make it to work consistently and on time. Let the interviewer know about your transportation plans, whether that includes driving, walking, taking public transit, or biking.

      Jordan's Answer #2

      "I hope never to be late! When I started working at a restaurant at sixteen years old, we were taught the adage of 'if you're on time, you're late,' so I've worked to implement that into my life. I always try to arrive 15 minutes early, but unforeseen circumstances sometimes arise. I handle surprises using common sense and keeping courtesy to others in mind."
