    Application Details

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

    Interview Details

    basic, fill out application, do assessment test and interview. You will probably interview with the stores assistant manager and the community leader (mini DM). Once excepted you will be required to take a drug and background test.

    Interview Questions
    • The questions are all open ended and are pretty basic. The interviewer reads premade questions. They are designed to make sure you do not reply yes or no. They are also interested in success stories, not so much how long you have been in your job. Degree will benefit.   Answer Question

    No negotiation. You start at the base pay. No exceptions.

    Shift Lead Interview

    Application Details

    I applied online – interviewed at Walgreens.

    Interview Details

    Interview happened in the stock room because there were currently people occupied in the room they usually interview in. It was a two person interview, they both took turns to ask questions. Overall the interview was pretty simple. They told me that shift lead needs to sometimes work the grave yard shift, including opening the store, closing the store, etc. Told me that you do not stay still most of the time and you are constantly on your feet. Then they asked my availability. They questioned if I can do it as I am a full time student. After explaining what the job does and everything, they asked me if I have any questions, which I did. How much per hour? They said $13.75. They then said they have a few more interviews still have yet to be done and they will give me a call back if I get the job or not.

    Overall it was a pleasant experience, nothing too hard but it kinda was intimidating as you get tag teamed by two interviewers.

    Interview Questions
    • Questions I got:

      What does the job title shift lead mean to you?

      What is your availability?

      Name a time where you led a group or team of people.

    Shift Lead Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in San Antonio, TX
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in San Antonio, TX
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Walgreens in May 2014.

    Interview Details

    I submitted the app online and selected many stores in my area. A week later, a manager called and asked if I'd come in for an interview. I met with the Store Manager in the back office. It was my mistake that I did not come with a printout with my resume. I expected to get some backlash for this. I did not; however, expect the Manager to have no prior knowledge of me what-so-ever. Since he wasn't prepared for me, I felt like I ended up asking him more questions. He was very friendly and nice. I just wish their was a little more structure. He then called me 2 days later for a second interview. I arrived to hear it was just a meeting to offer me the job. He then sent me to a drug screening and background check.

    Interview Questions
    • 1. Why do you want to work for Walgreens? It is so basic but it completely caught me off guard. I just wanted to laugh and say 'because I need money and you were the first to call for an interview'.
      2. Give me an example of your experience with a difficult customer.
      3. Give me an example of how you have trained an employee on down time.
      Then be prepared to ask them a lot of questions. They like to talk :)
       
      Answer Question
    Reasons for Declining

    The store is open 365 days a year, I would be one of 3 total managers- I was never going to get a weekend or a holiday off for the rest of my Walgreens' career. $11/hr for that sacrifice is not worth it to me.

    I applied online. The process took a weekinterviewed at Walgreens in January 2014.

    Interview Details

    Quick phone conversation, then a one-on-one with hiring manager. The entire process will take a while as they will have to interview other people, and then there is the drug testing. You will be expected to help out in the pharmacy from time to time.

    Walgreens Shift Lead Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Taylor, TX
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Taylor, TX
    Application Details

    I applied in-person – interviewed at Walgreens in October 2013.

    Interview Details

    Applied in store at a computer in the back office. The application included personal information, assessment tests and cash handling tests. I was hired on the spot and asked to submit a drug test within 24 hours.

    Interview Questions
    • How would you handle a situation in which a customer is angry about a price tag was on the wrong product?   Answer Question
    Negotiation Details
    I was offered the job on the spot. They asked what my availability was, I told them I could work 4 days a week and they were able to accommodate that. I told them I could not work Sunday mornings because I had prior obligations to my church. They were fine with that until after about 6 months, I reminded them that I told them I could not work Sunday morning during my interview, they backed down and kept to their word. I definitely recommend being upfront about what days you can and cannot work during your interview because walgreens is not the best at keeping to their word.
