Pharmacy Technician Interview

Pharmacy Technician
Cottage Grove, MN

I applied online and the process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Target in June 2014.

Interview Details – Called by HR to schedule interview. Then when I got to Target they asked me to do the followup survey which I was unable to do since the keyboard was broken. After finding another computer, I was able to complete my survey and be interviewed. Simple interview but the interviewers seemed somewhat inexperienced. They read off a packet of paper.

Interview Question – When did you make a mistake and how did you resolve the error?
Was there a time when you went up and beyond expectations?

Certified Pharmacy Technician Interview

Certified Pharmacy Technician
Virginia Beach, VA

I applied online and the process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Target in March 2014.

Interview Details – Applied online after being referred for an opening. Took two weeks to receive a call, then set up an interview two days later. Another interview was scheduled for the same position at the same time. The first interview was with the Lead Pharmacist, then had a second interview with the other Pharmacist. Later that day, received a call from HR to see if I could come back THAT DAY for another interview, which seemed like poor planning. Came back the next day, was offered the position. Had to wait another week and a half for the drug test to come back before orientation.

Interview Question – If I were to call one of your past supervisors, what would they say your greatest weakness is?   Answer Question

Pharmacy Technician Interview

Pharmacy Technician
Stillwater, MN

I applied online and the process took 1+ week - interviewed at Target in March 2014.

Interview Details – Applied online, received a phone call from store HR person who scheduled a phone interview with the Pharmacy team lead. Very standard interview questions, including:

Why target?
Strengths?
Areas for improvement?
And situational questions, asking for the situation, my actions, and the outcome outcome when I...
Led a team
Exceeded expectations
Juggled multiple tasks

Got called back by the HR person and we scheduled an in-store interview. She had me watch a brief video on Target team member practices and company culture, and then during our interview a lot of the same questions were asked:

Why do you want to work with Target?
What would a supervisor say are your strengths and areas for improvement?
What did you learn from the video you watched about working at Target?
When did you make a mistake and how did you resolve the error?
Situational:
What would you do if you were helping a mother find a pair of shoes for her 3 yr-old son and you found that the shelf didn’t have any in his size?
What would you do if a customer was in the check-out and the item rang up for $19.99 but the customer said it was priced at $17.99?

Was given a conditional offer of employment then. Was told starting salary is $11.75, and that for my 6+ years of customer service experience they could offer me $12.75, but not more. She also said the position was part-time - 20-30 hrs/week likely, with the possibility of cross-training in other departments to get to 30+ but with 40 being highly unlikely. They were very patient in giving me time to consider while I finished interviews with a different organization.

Interview Question – When did you make a mistake and how did you resolve the error?   Answer Question

Reason for Declining – I was looking for a full-time position and was interviewing elsewhere for a true FT position w/ a higher hourly wage.

Certified Pharmacy Technician Interview

Certified Pharmacy Technician
Little Rock, AR

I applied online and the process took 6+ weeks - interviewed at Target in July 2012.

Interview Details – interviews at target are very team oriented. they want to know about how you work with others.

Interview Question – They ask about your faults, being a former team lead for target I've conducted over 200 interviews and I can tell you they really want to hear what your bad at, and they want you to have a plan to improve your weak side.   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – Negotiation.....hahaha! they don't give you a choice in salary. they wait forever to tell you that you have the job and if you ask about more pay they lie and tell you they cant... I was offered $12.00/per hour as a team lead only to find out they pay as high as $22 and hour for team leads. I had 7 years of experience too.. they don't value that at all, they want someone they can boss around not someone to get things done.

Pharmacy Technician Interview

Pharmacy Technician
Parker, CO

I applied online and the process took 4+ weeks - interviewed at Target in November 2013.

Interview Details – Awful! I was hired a week after my interview. They don't take any time factor into consideration. I showed up 15 minutes early, they took me in 20 minutes past my scheduled time. The HR person was so scattered during the process. They called me in to let me know I got the job, only to tell me they forgot they had scheduled an appointment with me. There were phone calls back and forth for over a month with bits of information. After a months time, the head of HR called wondering why I hadn't started work yet...his partner in HR was so scattered she couldn't get me in for a training therefore couldn't get me on the schedule. During the time I took another part time job, because Target would never say schedule they needed or how many hours they would require. Not knowing if I would ever start at Target's Pharmacy, I accepted another part time job, was told on one of the many phone calls that I was going to do this leaving me only 2-4 days to put in 18-20 hours at Target's pharmacy. I was told this was not a problem by the pharmacist, then went rounds to get training. After the head of HR called inquiring why so many changes, I told him that since they couldn't get through a hiring process and hold to anything that was said, I would no longer be interested in the position. If you could actually speak to the pharmacist during any of the process after interviewing or have an hr person that has time management along with proper skill sets to take the job to completion, I think it would be a great job! Unfortunately, I did not have this experience.

Interview Question – The questions were not difficult. Quite common. "What is your experience in the pharmacy tech field?"   View Answer

Reason for Declining – The process was scetchy. They want you to speak only to HR and there was no contact with the pharmacist after the interview. It left too much room for miscommunication and caused frustration between the pharmasist and myself; she was left wondering when I would start and where I was....I was left wondering the same.
