    Applied online and manager called over 2 months later. The manager seemed ignorant and narrow minded. He kept asking the same questions and lied. Never heard from him again; thanks for the favor.

    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took a dayinterviewed at Walgreens.

    Interview Details

    I spoke with two Space Management associates for a contracted position for Floor Planning help. Given that the position was temporary and out of my usual field of work, I felt that the questions asked were difficult to answer for a new comer. The interview felt more like a hazing session.

    Application Details

    I applied through college or university – interviewed at Walgreens.

    Interviewed through a career fair that was put on by my school. Standard questions like a time you dealt with difficult customer, time you felt empathy for a patient, and a time when you showed leadership. STAR type questions. Also the usual tell me about yourself, etc. Pretty standard and casual. Then the interviewer told me to apply online.

    MARP Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Interview Details

    I made it though the campus round, and was brought to their corporate office for a final round. Standard behavioral interviews. Beware the Excel test! it is finicky, and probably why I didn't get the job. I know how to do the basic stuff in excel, but their test was not an effective way to measure it. I also wasn't a fan of the company culture upon visiting, so I don't think it would have been a great fit anyway. I also think they hire mostly off of interns for MARP now, so you are disadvantaged if you were not their intern.

    Application Details

    I applied through college or university. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at Walgreens.

    Interview Details

    I applied online through my university. The first round was done on campus. It was pretty easy - "tell me about yourself," then about 5 behavioral questions. They left some time at the end for me to ask them questions. I thought it was very rigid and was not impressed with the interviewers. They made it obvious that they were reading the questions word for word off the paper they had. About a week later they called me back and invited me to the second round interview. I flew to Chicago for a day, but the whole process there was very short. We met with current MARPs who answered our questions and did a presentation for us about the company. Then there were two back-to-back 30 minute interviews. They were similar to the first round. I was very unimpressed with the interviewers. They seemed like they had never conducted an interview before and had no interest in meeting with me. We also took a tour of the facility, ate lunch, and had to take an Excel class (very short and easy).

    Overall, the company came off as very rigid and old-fashioned. There was a clear lack of connection between the different departments within the company.

    Pharmacy Technician Interview

    Application Details

    I applied online – interviewed at Walgreens.

    Interview Details

    There was a job listed on the Walgreens website as a pharmacy technician for a brand new store that opened up so I completed the initial application. Upon completion, I was told that I needed to go into the store and complete the second part of the application- the skills assessment. The skills assessment took roughly 45 minutes to complete and mostly consisted of the typical questions you'd expect. After I completed the second part of the application, I was told to call back the following week to check my results. I called up the following week and the store manager said that they weren't even hiring to begin with and that they transferred all of their pharmacy technicians from other stores which left me feeling somewhat agitated since there was an open position listed.

    The interview went well; mostly behavioral type situations. Make sure you have examples in mind. Also tighten up your resume before you interview. A simple thing as spell check may save your candidacy.
