Interview Details – I just cold called the pharmacy and asked if they were looking for any technicians, and I told them I had a Bachelor's degree and also getting a Master's degree. From there I just was connected to the manger who had me come in for a quick interview, and was extremely easy. I found out then I had the job.

Interview Question – It was really easy. Hardest question was a challenge I had faced. Also my customer service experience   Answer Question

Pharmacy Technician

I applied online and the process took 4 weeks - interviewed at CVS Caremark.

Interview Details – I applied through the CVS website. It is a bit difficult to navigate. After going in circles, I eventually found my way to apply to the job I wanted and the stores near me. The first part of the website is the standard of posting your resume,then retyping your resume on multiple pages, and agreeing to the companies polices. Then comes a version of the MMPI which asks you questions about your character and than asking the same questions in a different phrasing. I recommend going to the stores you applied to get a feel of the place and a foot in the door. However, I received calls from multiple stores I didn't visit (because the were a last resort because of their distance) to set up an interview. The interview itself was simple. The pharmacy manger reviewed my resume, asked why I wanted to work as a pharm tech, gave me a gist of the work load and flow, and my availability. The next steps included a mixture of online and a few "classes" in order to be fully hired

Negotiation Details – There wasn't much room to negotiate. My asked and expected rate was much higher than my clerk job. I was told I was lucky to get far less as the maximum starting wage

Negotiation Details – It was MIA.
