    Application

    I applied online. The process took 5 weeksinterviewed at CVS Health (Boston, MA) in March 2015.

    Interview

    Very brief. I had more than the required education and experience, so I was hired very quickly. The interviewer went by a set of canned questions. I did not find it very challenging.

    I applied online. The process took 2 daysinterviewed at CVS Health (Northville, MI) in March 2015.

    Interview

    Manager called me in to come in that week and talk to him. He introduced himself to me and how long he had worked at CVS. He asked me to tell him about myself. He was nice and explained everything very well during the interview. He asked questions any employer would ask. He was very polite and respectful. However, he did not give my hourly pay until I asked for it. He also seemed rushed during the entire process.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a dayinterviewed at CVS Health (Washington, DC) in March 2015.

    Interview

    I filled out an application online via the CVS website for the Cape Cod district pharmacies. I received a voicemail and email from a district coordinator who put me in touch with the Cape Cod district pharmacy manager. I found a common time when we were able to complete the interview (by phone), and at the specified time he called me and conducted the interview. It was a seamless process, and I heard back within the time-frame that he gave upon the interview closing.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ monthsinterviewed at CVS Health (Chandler, AZ) in March 2015.

    Interview

    I was told that I was a really good candidate despite not being certified. They were really understaffed so they prioritized certification over potential. Still got the job anyway. 95% of the interview was mentally preparing me for the demanding job of pharmacy Technician trainee. It is supposed to be very grueling. I was also quipped with the general expectations, wage, training, and expected schedule.
