Manager Interview

Manager
Saint Petersburg, FL

I applied in-person and the process took 6 days - interviewed at CVS Caremark in December 2007.

Interview Details – It was very detailed and completely professional. They went into my background experience and personal references. They brought me back 3 times before they offered me the position. The rate of pay was not what I had expected and led to believe would be offered to me for my abilities to get the job done. I declined the job the offer was enhanced but not enough.

Interview Question – what would you do if you knew the copy was not being honest in business practises?   Answer Question

Reason for Declining – the pay was not worth the time

Manager Interview

Manager

The process took 3 weeks - interviewed at CVS Caremark in July 2011.

Interview Details – The District Manager found my resume on career builder and called to see if I would be interested in a management position with CVS. We briefly discussed my background and he scheduled me to come in for an interview the next day which was Friday. This was a very basic interview I felt very relaxed and comfortable it felt merely like a conversation with a few questions thrown in. The following Tuesday he called to get a phone number for another reference. Thursday he called to have me go meet with the district trainer on Saturday. Again it was just conversational. The following Wednesday he called and offered me the position and gave me information about drug screen and background check. I started just over a week after the offer was made.
