    Assistant Manager (MGT) Interview

    Anonymous Employee
    Anonymous Employee
    Application Details

    I interviewed online. The process took 2 days - interviewed at Walgreens in July 2013.

    Interview Details

    The process involved a Kenexa skills test and then a following interview with a manager. Very straightforward interview with standard questions like what do you know about our company and how you resolved a situation of conflict with another employee. References were asked for at the end of the interview and a phone call was given a couple days after.

    Assistant Manager (MGT) Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Application Details

    I interviewed online. The process took 1+ week - interviewed at Walgreens in February 2011.

    Interview Details

    Walgreens uses behavioral interviewing. They will ask a complex question about how you went out of your way to help a customer or resolved a difference with a fellow employee. And are looking for Situation, Plan, Implementation, Result as an answer and remember to be specific. Use peoples names and places and don't worry about using examples where plans didn't work, those can be good too

    Interview Questions
    • Don't let wording get you off your planned responses. Like if you have a great example about a customer interaction and they ask about your most difficult customer interaction. Don't change your answer, change their question. Something like: I don't really see situations like that. I do my best with every customer and here is an example of that. (this is greatly abbreviated btw).   Answer Question
    Negotiation Details
    You will not be able to ask for more than is offered unless you are coming in as a pharmacist.

    Assistant Manager (MGT) Interview

    Application Details

    I interviewed online - interviewed at Walgreens in July 2014.

    Interview Details

    Hiring manager very non attentive during interview. Cell phone went off several times so she missed some answers that were given. It felt like the interview was over before it began. I was very shocked at the unprofessional attitude displayed by someone who holds such a high position there.

    Assistant Manager (MGT) Interview

    Anonymous Employee  in  Atlanta, GA
    Anonymous Employee in Atlanta, GA
    Application Details

    I interviewed online. The process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Walgreens in July 2011.

    Interview Details

    Applied online, took a 2hr assessment consisting of math and reading questions. Got a call the next day to schedule an in-person interview with the DM. The interview process was easy, I scored one of the highest on their assessment and their admin called me the very next day to schedule a interview with their DM. Went in for an in-person interview and the DM was late 30 min, she was very unprofessional constantly checking her phone. There was only 10 behavioral/situational questions. Which I felt I did well, but I got a template email the next day saying I didn't get the offer. The template email didn't even have the DM's name on it. I certainly appreciate the timely response. What you put in is often what you get and it is their loss as they did not select the most qualified candidate perhaps afraid that he was over-qualified and may move on shortly. I don't think anyone would have sat through a 2hr assessment and driven another 3hr to the interview if they weren't genuinely interested in the position.

    I interviewed online. The process took 2+ weeks - interviewed at Walgreens.

    Interview Details

    The process has probably changed by now, since the MGT position was eliminated, but I received a call from the district manager, and had two interviews with different store managers before my final interview with the district manager.

    Assistant Manager (MGT) Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate  in  Tucson, AZ
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Tucson, AZ
    Application Details

    I interviewed online. The process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Walgreens in February 2010.

    Interview Details

    I applied online and was invited to an interview with the District Manager within 2 weeks. The process was standard behavioral questions based on past experiences, followed by a series of "what if's" ("what if this were to happen"). The DM was unenthusiastic and a tad aggressive with her perfume. The whole thing took about an hour.

    Interview Questions
    • I was asked a question which the DM then answered herself, which was unexpected: "You don't think a 40-60 minute commute is unreasonable, do you? No, of course you don't."   View Answer
    Negotiation Details
    There was no salary negotiation. I was given an offer that I required a 4 week delay on and they agreed with the stipulation that that was all I would ask for.

    Assistant Category Manager Interview

    Anonymous Employee  in  Deerfield, IL
    Anonymous Employee in Deerfield, IL
    Application Details

    I interviewed through college or university. 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.

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