    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 3 days - interviewed at Walgreens.

    Interview Details

    First, you will do an application either online or in store on the computer. There are no paper applications. Next, you have to go to a location to do a skills assessment. Ask for a manager and let them know you are there for a skills assessment. If possible, speak to the STORE MANAGER after you do the skills assessment so they can put a face to the application.The interview is now a behavioral one. Management is supposed to give same exact interview for all candidates. Do an internet search for Behavioral Interview questions for practice. You can apply for any entry level position. You do not need prior experience with photo equipment, beauty supplies or pharmacy knowledge. They do all the training for these positions, so aim high! If you have previous management experience definitely apply for the SFL, shift lead, key holder (whatever they are calling it now) position. You will have opportunity to advance if you do well. Pay attention during training and please don't act like you already know everything. Be prepared to work any holiday. You won't have to work all (in a fair store), but will definitely be expected to work some. If you have a family, I would think long and hard about how you would rather spend your holidays. If you can avoid working for a company that is open on holidays I would do so. If you are hired, make sure you let management know if and when you want to advance and be persistent.

    Walgreens Service Clerk Interview

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 2+ weeks - interviewed at Walgreens in June 2013.

    Interview Details

    All open positions from my experience with Walgreens are listed for that specific store under careers at the Walgreens website. I simply checked for an opening, and applied. In about 3 days, I received a phone call asking me to come to the store I applied at to take a skills assessment. I took the assessment, which merely composed of change counting skills, and general interactions with other employees, customers, and the management. I then again got a phone call 3 days from then, and had an interview for the position scheduled. The interview itself was what they referred to as 'preset.' The store manager read the questions from a packet of paper, and I answered. The questions were tailored to be very open, but to examine the experiences I've had in dealing with other people, the police, people who spoke a different language, etc. There were also a few questions that asked about my scheduling availability. After that, I was offered the position in a 'conditional hire.' Which meant I had to pass a mandatory drug test before I could start working there. It was your typical urine examination that is sent off, with the sample being taken at a 3rd party location. I passed, have worked there for over a year, and have not had to take another one. It is also noted that I did not have to send in a resume or bring one to the interview, although I did and gave the hiring manager a copy of it.

    Interview Questions
    • The most difficult question was in regards to an experience/situation I may have been in before, and how I handled it. It asked if I had been in a situation where I could not understand what another person was saying, for example if they spoke a different language or spoke English but were not easy to understand, and how I handled it.   View Answer
    Negotiation Details
    I was able to negotiate a very flexible schedule, getting the weekends off during the school year and being able to change my availability when I needed to.

    Application Details

    I applied online - interviewed at Walgreens.

    Interview Details

    Two interviews are conducted. You apply and then wait for a call from the store.The first interview is getting to know you and many questions are asked. Hiring and interview process is pretty good and the process went pretty smoothly. It is a good idea to talk about any research you did and maybe follow up with a thank you note. Also smiling and being positive. And be ready to answer their questions and have good questions to ask. That's what helped me out.
