Pharmacy Technician CPhT Interview

Pharmacy Technician CPhT

I applied in-person and the process took 3 days - interviewed at CVS Caremark.

Interview Details – I was contacted by the Pharmacy manager to come in for an in-person interview which was about 1 hour. After the informal interview, the pharmacy manager offered me the job and asked if I would do a drug test; then gave me all the necessary info on where to go for the drug screening.

Interview Question – Most difficult question was in regards to my expectations from the position; I had never worked in a pharmacy/or retail environment before so I did not know what to expect.   Answer Question

Pharmacy Technician CPhT

Interviewed at CVS Caremark

Interview Details – In looking for a job, I just went to the Pharmacist to build some rapport. After talking to him for a few minutes, he told me he'd give me a call. It took a lot longer than anticipated to get an interview (about a month), but once I did it was practically an on-site hire.

Interview Question – There weren't many questions in terms of situations.   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – Initial pay was a little low so I asked the manager if it could be raised, not long after starting (less than a week) she notified me that I would be getting more than initially promised.

Pharmacy Technician CPhT
Charlottesville, VA

I applied through an employee referral and the process took 1 week - interviewed at CVS Caremark in November 2010.

Interview Details – Applied for the position and received a call within a weeks time for the selected job that I had applied for. Compensation was not what I had expected. It was a lot lower than what the program I had attended to receive my license had said we would get. Interview questions were simple and basic. Pretty easy interview overall.
