Application Details

I applied online. The process took 1+ weekinterviewed at CVS Health in February 2015.

Interview Details

First I applied online and received a call a little over a week. He asked my availability and my age and I was asked to come in the next day for an interview. I came about 10- 15 earlier than I was scheduled and I had to wait in the pharmacy area for a little while. He then came out and greet me and I greeted him back and we shook hands. The store manage was super nice and asked other personal questions trying to make me feel comfortable then lead me to the back in this room and proceeded with the interview

    Interview Details

    The hiring process took quite some time. I had to wait about a month to get a call from them to set up the interview. Once the interview was complete, it took another month for the background check to go through. The actually interview was relatively easy with mostly basic questions.

    I applied online sometime in November and I got a call in the middle of December. I came in for an interview and it was super easy. He asked basic questions then told me about the position and that I would get an email soon if I got the job. I had the interview this morning and I'm currently waiting.

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at CVS Health in November 2014.

    Interview Details

    I applied for the position on the 17th of October and by a week later I was able to schedule a phone interview. Once I passed I was set up for an in person interview on a Monday. It lasted about 15 minutes and was very easy and laid back. I felt like I wasn't even on an interview the way the supervisor was able to engage. The questions were typical retail/customer service questions. "Why do you want to work here?", "How would you deal with handling multiple tasks?" My resume was right there so the interviewer saw my extensive background in customer service. By Tuesday I received an offer email.

    I applied online. The process took 5 weeksinterviewed at CVS Health in October 2014.

    Interview Details

    I applied early September and received a phone call in the middle of October to schedule a phone interview. They basically just told me what the job was all about and asked about my availability. Super easy breezy. We then scheduled a real interview and the I was very nervous because it was my first ever interview for a job but the manager was super friendly and wasn't intimidating at all which is exactly what a hiring manager should be like. There were no super difficult questions, just make sure to know what to say about yourself if they start off with "so tell me a little about yourself" because I was totally thrown off and didn't know what to say... Other than that it went well. I brought in my resume and dressed professionally and kept my makeup very natural looking.

    I applied online. The process took 5 daysinterviewed at CVS Health in September 2014.

    Interview Details

    I applied online like 4 months before and never got a call. Then I finally got a call but declined the interview because I found another job. I quit the other job and decided to call that hiring manager back (smooth move) about two months later and he told me that another store was hiring and that he was no longer hiring. I then called the suggested store and told them that I put in an application and wanted to know if they were still hiring. I was told yes and he asked for my name since he would be calling people later that week for interviews. I was actually contacted two days after that day asking whether I was still interested and I accepted the interview. The interview was simple but they did ask a lot of questions which I gave short and sweet answers to. I was interviewed by the store manager and shift supervisor at the same time. I was asked what are my strengths/weaknesses and some questions on how would you handle a certain situation. It was very laid back and I didn't feel like I was being drilled because it was more like a conversation.

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 5 daysinterviewed at CVS Health in September 2014.

    Interview Details

    I applied online on a Monday morning and got called at around 4pm the same day for an interview on Friday at midday. I came in at midday on Friday and I was told that the store manager just left for his lunch break so I was told to come back at 12:30. I left and came back and he still wasn't there so I just waited around and finally at around 1 he came and I had my interview. The interview was pretty good. The manager was basically giving a background on the store and himself. The only question he asked me was "Tell me about yourself ?". The interview ended around 1:30 I believe and I was told that he has another interview at 2 and he would call tomorrow if I got the job. When I got home which was around 2 I got an email saying that I got the job, my start date and I should fill out an offer response form. I was so stoked because I've been looking for a job since January!

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at CVS Health in September 2014.

    Interview Details

    First you go through an extremely long application which includes something like a training segment. Next about a week or two later I was emailed saying that they would like to interview me by phone and in which I was asked basic questions about experience and customer service experience. Then the in person interview happened, regular interview questions as long as you smile and joke with your interview you should be fine. Lastly, two weeks after the interview I went to an 8hour orientation and had to do online training test. And then I went to work.

    I applied online. The process took 5 daysinterviewed at CVS Health in August 2014.

    Interview Details

    I got a call to schedule an interview within three days of applying online - far different than my other experiences and most welcome! The interview was scheduled for two days after the call, which was also welcome. The interview itself focused on whether or not I had experience which would enable me to fit in right away. Although I have excellent prior experience, it is all in the distant past, so I'm quite sure that is why I did not get the call with an offer - said calls were being made the same day after all the interviews, I was even given a specific time. I just didn't get the call. Perhaps I'll get one next week (this possibility was also mentioned) after she's brought on others.
