Walgreens Cashier Interview

Walgreens Cashier
New Haven, CT

I applied online and the process took a day - interviewed at Walgreens in August 2013.

Interview Details – Received a phone call to schedule interview during a doctors appointment. They said I could call them back to schedule my interview in a few hours. When I called a few hours later to schedule the interview they said it was too late and I would not be given an interview despite the fact that I called back when they told me to call.

ASMt - Applies to Any Position Interview

ASMt - Applies to Any Position
Roseville, MN

I applied through other source - interviewed at Walgreens in April 2014.

Interview Details – Prepare yourself for a "behavioral interview". Google the term if you must. Instead of asking you what you "would do" in a situation, they want to know what you "have done". They want you to describe the situation in detail, what your actions were and the outcome of it all. Don't be afraid to take some time to think first, your response is more important than the amount of time it takes to answer.

Interview Question – Tell me about the most difficult coworker you've had to work with. Describe the situation, how did you handle it, what was the outcome?   Answer Question

Customer Service Associate Interview

Customer Service Associate
Decatur, IL

Interviewed at Walgreens

Interview Details – I applied online and received an email stating that I had to come to a local store to complete an assessment. The assessment was fairly easy and took abut 20-30 minutes. It asked multiple questions about customer service. It also asked you how to make the correct change and also had you view coupons and stores codes. After the assessment the manager told me they weren't hiring, but my application will sent to all of the Walgreens in my area.

Assistant Category Manager Interview

Assistant Category Manager
Deerfield, IL

I applied through college or university and the process took 3 months - interviewed at Walgreens in May 2014.

Interview Details – I became aware of the position through my university and I applied online. I then received a phone interview with a recruiter who was warm and friendly. A few weeks later I got scheduled for an in person interview in Deerfield. I had to take an Excel test at one building, then drive to a different building and interview with managers in the merchandising department. The interview was very robotic and the managers did not try to sell Walgreens as a company to me. It was a bad culture fit for me.

Interview Question – The analytics test was fine, but you can take the outcome in so many different directions it is difficult to be right.   Answer Question
