    Pharmacy Technician Interview

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 6 weeksinterviewed at CVS Health.

    Interview Details

    I applied online but I never received any contact back. After about two weeks I called all the stores I applied to but all but one seemed interested in hiring. I talked with the Pharmacist and she asked for me to come in for an interview the next week. The interview was very basic, questions about when I was available and what the job entails. Over all it was pleasant. They said that they would contact me back after reviewing my application. (they had a difficulty finding my application on the computer) I never received a call back, so I called and they said that they haven't been able to review my application yet, even though the interview was a week ago. They asked to call the next week and I called again and they still couldn't find my application and they said that they sent a request to the company to see what was wrong and they would contact me. I waited and waited and finally I called and they said that they were still waiting to hear back. Ultimately, they never called back and seemed like they were not interested in hiring.

    Pharmacist Interview

    Application Details

    I applied through college or university – interviewed at CVS Health.

    Interview Details

    Participated in a career fair interview. Pretty straightforward, not high stress at all. Mostly situational questions "tell me about a time when..." so have examples ready for common situations. A few business-related questions, so be prepared to discuss how you would increase script volume or bring in more customers if you weren't reaching your goals. Basically just sound proficient in the business side of things.

    Director Interview

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 9+ monthsinterviewed at CVS Health.

    Interview Details

    I first applied for the position in February of 2014, was contacted by HR in April and had my initial phone screen. I was told the next steps would another phone screen by a panel, then a phone screen by the hiring manager, and the last step would be a face to face with the hiring manager. Panel phone screen was setup for the 1st of May, spoke with 4 Directors for about an hour. Got great feedback and the hiring manager bypassed the phone screen and had me come in for the face to face 2 weeks later. I was then setup for a phone interview with a SVP out of NYC at the end of May, had a great conversation with him and felt positive after the interview. HR emailed back on June 2nd and said they would be wrapping up the position within the next 2 weeks and that I was the frontrunner. 2 weeks went by and no contact, finally at the end of June I heard that the SVP wanted me for a more senior role on the company and asked that I do a few more rounds of interviews with other executives. I had a face to face scheduled for July 10th with another SVP, it went great as well and it sounded as if they wanted to move quickly. A few more weeks went by with nothing, then another request for another interview came for August 14th, a tele-presence with a VP out of NYC, had another great conversation with him, found out more about the role they wanted me for and left thinking I would have an offer soon. I was contacted at the end of August by the HR Director and she explained the role in more detail, sent me the executive benefits package, and talked about the verbal offer with salary, stock, and bonuses, so I felt pretty confident I had the position. She said she would have an offer in my hands by the weekend. I have been calling and emailing the HR Director and the recruiter every 2 weeks since that time with no response. I received a message from the recruiter in late October that they now were under a hiring freeze until January. So all in all this process took over 9 months and I find it very unprofessional that the HR staff could not reach out to me and let me know the position had been filled, I was no longer under consideration, or that there was a hiring freeze.

    Application Details

    I applied online – interviewed at CVS Health.

    Interview Details

    I applied online and within the week had gotten a call to come in for a interview. My first interview was with the store manager. It was brief and very general how did you hear about us why do you want to work here kind of thing. Very casual interview. Two days after my first interview I got a call for my second. The second interview was with the district manager and the store manager. A lot more professional and they fleshed out more of my personality and fit for the company asking more situation and hypothetical questions still a rather brief interview less than 20 minutes. By the next week I was being drug tested and trained.

    Pharmacist Interview

    Application Details

    I applied through college or university – interviewed at CVS Health.

    Interview Details

    The interview was set up through my school with a bunch of other companies present. They made you fill out their application ahead of time. I only had the one interview, but I heard they called some people back for a second interview too. I interviewed with two people. I received an offer the next day, but some people still haven't heard anything (2.5 weeks later) and some people got an email stating that they think other candidates are better suited for the position. The offer includes your salary and other benefits, but they don't tell you the exact location that they want you to work. They also give you 30 days to respond to the offer. They were very friendly and the interview wasn't really intimidating at all. There were a few times where I forgot a word that I wanted to say and they helped me out without a problem.

    Interview Questions
    • Nothing really unexpected. The standard tell me about yourself of course and some other standard ones. There were a lot of scenario questions on how would you improve your business essentially. The most unexpected was along the lines of tell me about a time you had to adhere to/manage a budget, but other than that I feel like the questions weren't too unexpected.   Answer Question
