    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ weeksinterviewed at Walgreens.

    Interview

    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.

    Application

    I applied online – interviewed at Walgreens (Dunwoody, GA) in July 2014.

    Interview

    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.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 3+ monthsinterviewed at Walgreens (Deerfield, IL) in May 2014.

    Interview

    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.
