Cashier Interview

Cashier

Interviewed at CVS Caremark

Interview Details – I was called in for an interview, and it took about 3 weeks to get a call after I applied through the online site. You take a series of pre-screening questions before a call, and your hiring is based on how you answer the questions. Former work experience in retail is helpful, unless you know someone who works there. You should get hired on the spot if your called back for an interview as long as you have a reasonable head on your shoulders.

Interview Question – What experience do you have in retail?   Answer Question

Advisor/Manager Interview

Advisor/Manager

I applied online and the process took 2 weeks - interviewed at CVS Caremark.

Interview Details – I had an initial interview with a recruiter who didn't know much about the position but was very nice. I then had three more interviews. After an interview with the head of the dept, I was expecting an offer - I have never been that far through the interview process without getting the job offer. But after the last interview, I received a form letter via email stating I did not get the job.
Many of the questions surrounded my attitude toward management and how I get along with my boss. I expected more questions about my experience and background, and what I could offer the company, not about recalling past experiences with bosses and employees. I felt the nature of the questions indicated they must be having problems with employees.

Interview Question – If you didn't agree with a decision your boss made what would you do?   Answer Question

Pharmacy Technician Interview

Pharmacy Technician

Interviewed at CVS Caremark

Interview Details – You apply and then wait to get a call for an interview. I had two interviews first with an assistant manager and then next with the manager. After that you just have to take a drug test/background check and you are hired. The interview is the basic situational questions as well as questions about yourself and if you can handle the fast work pace of the pharmacy. Overall it isn't that bad and if you have experience it is a plus and if you are planning on gaining experience to attend pharmacy school that is a big plus (my situation).

Interview Question – It was an easy going interview and they want to see if you can handle the work pace of the pharmacy and if you can work with people including the pharmacist (sometimes crazy).   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – I didn't bother because either way it would be similar but you could negotiate for more.

Store Manager Interview

Store Manager

I applied online and interviewed at CVS Caremark.

Interview Details – The beginning of the process was like any typical interview process...I applied on line which was suggested to me from a current CVS employee. I was contacted via email that the company wanted to go to the next step because of my credentials. Had a great phone interview and was contacted via email that I was selected to have a one on one interview with the DM. I showed up to the interview based on the email sent to me on the correct date and 15 minutes ahead of schedule. After I waiting for the DM to complete another interview I introduced myself and he abruptly said that I was one hour late. I said that according to the email I received I am on time and proceeded to show him the email on my smartphone. Without skipping a beat he said that I should wait until I was contacted again via email to select another date. I was very excited about the possibilities of working with CVS until I experienced a wasted 45 min commute. Finally had a face to face interview with the DM the second time around after another 45 min commute. He said that I should hear something in 3 to 5 days in which now day 11 has passed. If this is the way internal employees are handled I'll pass on this opportunity and wouldn't take it if they begged me too. Well maybe if they reimburse me for miles driven.
