    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at CVS Health (Lancaster, PA) in August 2015.

    The application process, including the "Virtual Job Tryout" was the longest part of the whole process, taking almost an hour. The phone interview was very straight forward and standard (salary expectations, prior experience, etc.) and took about 15 minutes. The in-person interview took about a half hour and consisted mostly of developing a career path and training action plan.
