    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at CVS Health (San Antonio, TX).

    Interview

    Sat down with two predominant managers in the area, one of which would be my store manager. Semi casual interview in the back room of the store. Took no more than forty minutes because both managers were very experienced and prepared.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at CVS Health (Fuquay-Varina, NC) in July 2015.

    Interview

    Thorough description of job and responsibilities, lots of former employment questions, drug test and background check. I was told that training and trial period for this job could take 60-90 days before secure in the role of Supervisor. Overall, the interview was short and to the point and I am waiting a week to hear back from the manager so that he can interview other candidates.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at CVS Health in July 2015.

    Interview

    Literally handed me the job. When I went for supervisor the manager was desperate for bodies and did the same. There was really no room to negotiate pay because positions are red lined by the company and depend on your store size, not your actual sales

    Interview Questions

    • Literally not a question asked   1 Answer

    Negotiation

    The pay is crap unless you're in a 24 hour store. Fulltime is red lined at 11.50 an hour. That's the lowest management pay I have ever seen for how much they ask from full time supervisors.

    Shift Supervisor B Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Taylor, MI
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at CVS Health (Taylor, MI) in June 2015.

    Interview

    I applied back in April and got a call in June to go in for an interview. The manager was pretty set on me and the interview was more about him letting me know what to expect of the job instead of asking the usual situational questions and personality probes. We ended up speaking for an hour. A few days later, I was offered the job and I accepted. The hiring process is now done through a third party so it gets extremely slow and painful from then on. I completed my drug screening and then started onboarding paperwork (online) a week later. It then took about another week to schedule my first training class which will take place in a store that is an hour away.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at CVS Health (Atlanta, GA).

    Interview

    I applied online to the store(s) I was interested in, then I called the store and left my name with the manager so he could "pull my application". He called me back two days later to set up an interview for the next day. He then set up an interview with the district manager two days after my initial interview. I received an offer via email by the end of the week, along with consent forms for a background check and drug test.

    The store manager did not read my application. It's like he did not prepare for me and offered me way less money then I was worth. I have a proven track record

    I applied online. I interviewed at CVS Health (Chicago, IL) in April 2015.

    Interview Questions

    • What is one of your best traits ?   1 Answer

    Negotiation

    I wasn't able to negotiate salary. That was the only part I was frustrated with. Pretty much you can take it or leave it. However in Chicago it takes a long time to get hired anywhere so if your in Chicago you'll take it. Money is pretty good but not enough for the grueling job of Shift Supervisor at CVS.
