    I interviewed through a recruiter. The process took 1 week - interviewed at CVS Caremark in September 2010.

    Interview Details

    I had a reverse interview. Normally you have a phone interview first, instead I met with the DM over lunch, and we talked about my past experiences. Afterwards, he just said I had to pass an easy phone interview. It took about 3 days to go through the whole process. Simple and clean.

    Pharmacy Technician CPhT Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate  in  Rockville, MD
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Rockville, MD
    Application Details

    I interviewed online - interviewed at CVS Caremark in June 2014.

    Interview Details

    The interview process was fairly simple. This was a part time position and the Pharmacy manger literally begged me to come for the interview and she will "try to get me as many hours as she can" since i was looking for a full time position. the interview itself was also simple and short; problem solving senarios and why you choose this company. The a few days later i called a call saying they have chosen me and would email forms to complete and then schedule on-boarding class. The bad thing is that, they were hiring me (a CPhT as a pharmacy tech trainee and starting pay is 10.00 then after the onboarding was over, i would get an increase in pay. I needed a job (i was so bored and broke at home during the summer break with no money and no way to have quality fun) so i accepted the position. Let's see how it goes!

    Application Details

    I interviewed online. The process took 2 months - interviewed at CVS Caremark in April 2014.

    Interview Details

    The process seem to be very lengthy and with no structure. if you don't follow up they will lose your application and never contact you, but will continue to advertise for open positions with no clear time frame while you wait.

    I interviewed through an employee referral - interviewed at CVS Caremark in September 2012.

    Great communication and follow up as I went through the hiring process. The interviews that I had were well structured and helped me understand the opportunity and share my background.

    Negotiation Details
    Negotiations included an unwritten agreement to evaluate after 6 months that was not honored. In fact, the agreement was dishonored when I was promoted into the agreed to role after completion of 4 month onboarding training. Very disappointing and lack of integrity caused me to begin search immediately and I now am happy working with a direct competitor.

    Pharmacy Technician Interview

    Application Details

    I interviewed in-person. The process took 2 weeks - interviewed at CVS Caremark in August 2012.

    Interview Details

    To get a job at CVS you have to apply online but I went to the store and spoke to the pharmacy manager in person and he instructed me to apply online. The interview took place in a small office in CVS; it wasn't very impressive but it got the job done. They mainly want to hear that you work well with others.

    Interview Questions
    • I didn't find anything very difficult, they just want to know you you're hard working and work well with others. He asked me about sports and other activities where I had to work with cooperatively with others.   Answer Question
