    Interview Details

    The interview was in two parts on two separate days. One thing I wish I knew going in was that they expect you to have no life outside of work. They let you out on time but expect you work every single day and never call out, no matter how valid your reason.

    Application Details

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 1 week - interviewed at CVS Health.

    Interview Details

    You are required to fill out a survey and perform a drug test. The survey was fun for me and it's pretty logical how you should answer some of the questions to get the job.

    Interview Questions
    • Most unexpected questions were the situational questions in the survey, "what would you do if...". Really not 'unexpected' just slightly obscure   Answer Question
    Negotiation Details
    Ask for one dollar over the price they give you and just see if they can be flexible. It's work it not to get stuck working for $9 and hour only raising $0.50 a year.

    Application Details

    I applied through other source. The process took a day - interviewed at CVS Health.

    Interview Details

    I got one interview and got in. It's easier to get in if you interned there. Just come and dress professionally. Make sure you state why you want to work for the company, what you expect to bring to the company, and also answer their questions with clarity. As them questions about the company and what they think of working there (you should know what you're getting yourself into) in regards to work load, the environment, etc.

    Customer Care Representative - Nashville TN Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 4 days - interviewed at CVS Health in September 2014.

    Interview Details

    well. I applied right before Labor Day 2014. The very next day on a wednesday I had a digital interview with about 8 questions to answer. The next day, I have a phone interview with a recruiter who scheduled for interview after the holiday. This week 09/03 completed interview in position which consists of taking notes from live calls used I guess to see if one is paying attention. I was then interviewed by a HR rep for 30 minutes who asks me questions based off my resume and where I'm worked. He did ask why did I want to work for cvs caremark and one of the last questions was how did I prepare for interview and I rattled off about 15 things I new about the company.

    I went back to the library and waited for second interview with a Supervisor. She was nice. told me a little bit more about the work environment. I was armed with a list of questions so the interview was about 40 mintes long. I did that intentionally to show my level of interest. The interviewer wanted to know if I was coachable and how do I or a candidate take feedback. They did mention some new hires doing well ad having opportunities to go to san antonio and train.

    After this, I went back to lobby again(total of 3 hours) and waited for HR. I met with same interviewer who offered me the position. I must of made a good impression. They do ask probing questions, they dont just give it to you. Personally, I have been out of work for well over a year, but I have a good opportunity there. Every company has its kinks, yet I expect to do well here and improve my life.

    Interview Questions
    • not really difficult. I would advise to ask questions based on job description, the healthcare field, and whats on the web site. Must have a plan you know   Answer Question
    Negotiation Details
    Hmmm they offered me few pennies more because of my customer service experience. I didnt attempt to negotiate

    They will focus more on customer service then anything else since its the main focus as a retailer who wants to differentiate themselves from others. Best thing I would recommend is go into a store and pay attention to how they handle customers.

    Interview Questions
    • Same as the first question they will ask you lots about customer service and how to handle difficult situations.   Answer Question
