Very Easy Interview

Pharmacy Intern Interview

Anonymous Employee
Clearwater, FL

I applied through an employee referral and the process took 1 week - interviewed at CVS Caremark in December 2009.

Interview Details – Hired but wasn't in the system until a month later. I was thrown in with the wolves where pharmacy techs were too "busy" to care about customers waiting at the check out (because cashing people out was everyone's least favorite job duty).
Got trained two or three months later, and it was minimum training.
I was hired on the spot because they needed staff ASAP. The interview was a joke. Just dont show up in jeans, something my pharmacy manager used to always complain about.

Negotiation Details – Ask for higher pay and training. Make sure you know what store you are going to. Some stores are a complete mess and just not worth the stress or the money.

I applied online and the process took 3 weeks - interviewed at CVS Caremark in June 2009.

Interview Details – Have to go online and fill out a behavioral questionnaire -- somewhat lengthy. Contacted by phone about the position and had a quick interview with the pharmacist at a local store. They needed an intern so that was all it took to get the position, cannot speak to the actual interview process in-store

Interview Question – Asked what my future pharmacy plans were and when I was graduating   Answer Question

The process took a day - interviewed at CVS Caremark in May 2009.

Interview Details – CVS stresses script counts way too much and puts major pressure on the pharmacist....they dont' even give breaks to their pharmacy employees. They will not let you have any holidays off if your a new employee...so I can't enjoy a proper vacation with my husband when he has off from his work. Good luck with this company!
