    Merchandising Exposure Program Interview

    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter – interviewed at Walgreens.

    Interview Details

    Was contacted by a recruiter and was asked to apply online. I then proceeded to apply online and had a interview with two Walgreens employees. The questions were mostly situational and tell me about a time. I really enjoyed the two people who interviewed me. They made me feel very comfortable and I left the interview wanting to be apart of Walgreens.

    I applied online – interviewed at Walgreens.

    Interview Details

    I applied online and got an email the next morning for a Saturday interview. The interviewer was friendly. He asked five questions, all "give me an example of a time..." The interview itself lasted about half an hour, and half of that was him explaining the benefits and showing me around the pharmacy.

    Application Details

    I applied in-person – interviewed at Walgreens.

    Interview Details

    They had a 'hiring' sign on the door of their location. I asked an employee about it and they motioned me to a computer in the beauty department. I finished an application and assessment right there on the spot. About a week later I got a call for an interview. I came in that week and met with two of the assistant managers. One of them asked me questions while the other just kind of watched me for responses. That same day she gave me instructions and the location for my drug test. I'd say a week later I started my employment there.

    Interview Questions
    • They asked me standard retail questions like, "tell me about yourself", "are you in school", "what is your availability", "what is your work experience" etc.   Answer Question

    Customer Service Associate Interview

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

    I applied online. The process took 2 daysinterviewed at Walgreens in February 2015.

    Interview Details

    I applied online through their website. I was then called that same week, and asked to come in and take a skills assessment test. After the test, you will be asked if you would mind being interviewed right then. The questions are read directly from a script (there are 5-6 questions.)

    Interview Questions
    • Give an example of a communication barrier that you had to overcome. Give an example of teamwork that you took part of. Give an example of a time a customer was displeased, and how you took care of it.

      The questions follow that vein. They also ask to elaborate (what was your part, what did you do, how do you feel your action affected the overall outcome, and so on.)
