    Assistant Manager Interview

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at Walgreens (Champaign, IL) in April 2013.

    Interview

    Pretty simple process all said and done. The process, for me, involved first filling out the online application which entailed several behavioral exams and general experience. Was then contacted by a talent acquisition manager who scheduled an interview on my college campus. I additionally went to my local Walgreen's and requested a small sit-down with the current store manager; which I believe helped facilitate the interview process.

    Assistant Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Provo, UT
    Accepted Offer
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university – interviewed at Walgreens (Provo, UT) in April 2012.

    Interview

    The best way to get this job is to be persistent in the interview follow-up, in my experience. I met the recruiters on a campus visit, in an information session; interviewed the following day, and followed up 4-5 times demonstrating that I wanted this job more than other applicants. It helped that my job history matched that of two of the executives that interviewed me.
