    Pharmacy Technician Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate  in  Pittsburgh, PA
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Pittsburgh, PA
    Application Details

    I interviewed online. The process took 3 weeks - interviewed at Giant Eagle in February 2010.

    Interview Details

    I applied for several years before finally getting a call to set up an interview. I had a phone conversation/interview first, not long after I had an on site interview with a HR person. When that went well, an on site interview with the pharmacy manager was set up within a week. This was a lot less daunting than I expected. The manager was very nice and frienfly and the interview was rather relaxed.

    Fuel Station Attendant Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate  in  Seven Fields, PA
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Seven Fields, PA
    Application Details

    I interviewed online. The process took 1 week - interviewed at Giant Eagle in December 2011.

    Interview Details

    Step one: Filled out application online through Giant Eagle's website.

    Step two: Was contacted within a few days by a corporate recruitment representative who conducted a phone screening--real basic, predictable questions about past experience, customer service, etc. At the end of the call she asked to set up an in-person interview.

    Step three/four: The in-person interview was conducted by both the recruitment rep and the store manager. In my instance both interviews were held back-to-back, but I know there were times when my manager was not always able to be there the same day as the recruiter's interview. Again, standard predictable questions about what you would do in various customer service situations and about your most and least challenging experiences at prior jobs. If he/she extends a job offer to you, you'll sign off for the background check and drug test, and as long as you pass those they'll call you within a few days of the offer to set up a group training workshop.

    Interview Questions
    • The recruiting rep and the store manager basically asked almost the exact same questions, so just keep your answers consistent and remember what you said to the first interviewer.   Answer Question

    Interview Questions
    Reasons for Declining

    There was a distinct disconnect between the hiring manager and the HR Team. While the HR Team indicated that they were an employer of choice, especially when it come to home-work life balance I assumed that meant, that if I needed to work from home occasionally I could, or it I had an appt to get to it would be nor problem, as long as my work was being done. The Hiring Manager felt as if this job would require 50-60 hours a week at the office. I have no problem putting the hours in, I do currently, but some of that is done in my home office, so that i can have dinner with my family. When I brought this comment up to the HR director, she promptly indicated that's why they hadn't been able to hire anyone for the position, but she assured me that wasn't the case, I would have full support to WFH when needed, and they even had cube share (wasn't asking for that, but it was great to know that they supported it.) In the end I felt as if I didn't want to be the one that paved the way with this particular director, and decided it wasn't a good opportunity for me at the time.
