    Pharmacy Technician Interview

    Anonymous Employee

    Neutral Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online – interviewed at Walgreens in July 2015.

    Interview

    I filled out an application online maybe a month ago and got a call a few days ago to come in for the skills assessment. I had an impromptu "interview" (her words) with the pharmacist, and she barely listened or cared. I have to take the drug test tomorrow, so I don't know if I actually got the job or if there is another interview on the way.

    Store Manager Interview

    Anonymous Employee
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took a weekinterviewed at Walgreens.

    Interview

    Was called to schedule interview at district office. The company only hires internal store managers form the pool of assistants unless there is a remote location that is incredibly difficult to staff. In my honest opinion the interview is really just a show as they pretty much know who they are going to select, but they have to make it look competitive. However, on more than one occasion assistant's have been promoted without ever interviewing.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 1+ weekinterviewed at Walgreens (Mooresville, NC) in June 2015.

    Interview

    I was able to get an interview only because I obtained the email for the district hiring manager and emailed him directly. The interview process began with generic questions about my background and education. They then asked several situational questions, similar to the STAR format of interviewing. They then went over basic information about the position. The interview concluded with any questions I had.

    • Give me an example of a time when you had to convey information in a successful manner and how the information was received.   Answer Question

    Walgreen Store Clerk Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Hudson, FL
    No Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a weekinterviewed at Walgreens (Hudson, FL) in June 2015.

    Interview

    I had to go in a take an assessment on their computer, after they gave me a appointment for an interview. I went to the interview which lasted for about 30 minutes and I knew that once the interviewer said that if she didn't call me by a certain day that I did not have the job. I believe that they already decided who they were going to hire before they interviewed me. I was disappointed to go to an interview where I surmissed the candidate was already picked before I walked through the front door.

    • They asked how I dealt with situations when a customer would be upset.   1 Answer

    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 daysinterviewed at Walgreens (Roseville, MI) in June 2015.

    Interview

    Contacted by recruiter on email on Tuesday to set a phone interview for Wednesday followed by site interview in Thursday! Phone screen went ok. In person interview was a disaster. Hiring manager was browsing as I answered my questions. She kept looking at the clock from the moment I sat down so it felt like she was going through the motions since I was the last one. There was no attempt to engage and dig deeper as it was clear her decision was made by this time.
