    Assistant Manager Interview

    Anonymous Employee
    Anonymous Employee
    Application Details

    I interviewed in-person - interviewed at Walgreens in June 2010.

    Interview Details

    As an employee who was trying to move up the later, I couldn't have had a worse experience interviewing for the job. I was in a cramped room with five other people hunched together and staring at me, all looking as if none of them showed any interest in what I was saying. All of the questions were behavioral and had nothing to do with my long experience as a sales clerk and pharmacy technician. It really seemed like they just wanted to hear some nice, and false, stories to make themselves feel good about giving the interview.

    Oh, and they won't even call you to tell you that you didn't get the job. You would think that current employees would be given a little more respect, but they really haven't been showing that in recent years.

    Application Details

    I interviewed through a recruiter. The process took 5 days - interviewed at Walgreens in May 2008.

    Interview Details

    Interview was perfunctory as I had lots of experience. However, you would do best to not indicate any reluctance to work long hours or do physical labor. Half the job is being there and working hard.
