    Application Details

    I applied online – interviewed at CVS Health.

    Interview Details

    I applied online and within the week had gotten a call to come in for a interview. My first interview was with the store manager. It was brief and very general how did you hear about us why do you want to work here kind of thing. Very casual interview. Two days after my first interview I got a call for my second. The second interview was with the district manager and the store manager. A lot more professional and they fleshed out more of my personality and fit for the company asking more situation and hypothetical questions still a rather brief interview less than 20 minutes. By the next week I was being drug tested and trained.

    Pharmacist Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Application Details

    I applied through college or university – interviewed at CVS Health.

    Interview Details

    The interview was set up through my school with a bunch of other companies present. They made you fill out their application ahead of time. I only had the one interview, but I heard they called some people back for a second interview too. I interviewed with two people. I received an offer the next day, but some people still haven't heard anything (2.5 weeks later) and some people got an email stating that they think other candidates are better suited for the position. The offer includes your salary and other benefits, but they don't tell you the exact location that they want you to work. They also give you 30 days to respond to the offer. They were very friendly and the interview wasn't really intimidating at all. There were a few times where I forgot a word that I wanted to say and they helped me out without a problem.

    Interview Questions
    • Nothing really unexpected. The standard tell me about yourself of course and some other standard ones. There were a lot of scenario questions on how would you improve your business essentially. The most unexpected was along the lines of tell me about a time you had to adhere to/manage a budget, but other than that I feel like the questions weren't too unexpected.   Answer Question
    Reasons for Declining

    I accepted an offer from another company.

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 6 weeksinterviewed at CVS Health.

    Interview Details

    I applied online and the pharmacy manager called about 3 weeks later asking was I still available and did I want to come in for an interview. While on the phone he briefly asked about my experience and availability and scheduled me for an interview the following day. The interview was very quick and down to the the point no hard irrelevant questions were asked, they were mainly about experience and why I wanted to become a pharmacy tech. He was very pleasant and he assured me that the job was mine but he had to clear it with the store manager. A couple of day past with no calls or emails for the store so I decided to give him a call. He apologized for not getting back to me but there were some pharmacy tech being transferred around so the position was no longer available. He gave me a number to another cvs store that he sure was hiring and to call right away and give the pharmacist my information. I called right away as told and some the the pharmacist she told me that she would look into it right away and give me a call back. Two days later I called her and she told me she was just getting ready to give me a call and to come in for an interview the flowing day. Everything went well as expected and I was offered the position on the spot. The only hassle is the actual start date after waiting so long for the initial phone call and all.

    Interview Details

    i was looking for a part time position, and cvs was one of the first to call me back. Though i was nervous for the interview was easy. They asked very easy questions that were what a person should expect from an interview for a part time position. They replied back very promptly,and i was given the job. To prepare for the interview i would suggest looking at interview questions online to prepare as there was nothing out of the ordinary.

    I applied online – interviewed at CVS Health.

    Interview Details

    After applying, it took awhile to hear back. I waited at least a month or two before I finally got called in for an interview. But the interview itself though was fairly painless and overall laidback. The store manager was very nice and asked me basic questions, basically getting to know me as a person, some of my experiences, etc.. Then after the interview,the hiring process occurred straight afterwards and was quick.
