    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Houston, TX
    Application Details

    I applied through a staffing agency. The process took 2 weeks - interviewed at CVS Health in June 2014.

    Interview Details

    I was called in for an interview with the district manager and pharmacy manager. They were not very proactive in their questioning. I felt as if they didn't really care who they hired. I was told originally it would be a full time position, but during the interview told it was only part time. I didn't get a sense of security while looking at their pharmacy.

    Interview Questions
    • They didn't really ask any specific interview questions, only asked me what my availability was.   Answer Question

    I applied in-person - interviewed at CVS Health.

    Interview Details

    I filled out an application at the local CVS where I live and didn't hear from that store. However after a few weeks, I got a telephone call from a manager from another store and he told me he saw my application and was interested in interviewing me for the Cashier/Clerk position. The interview took 20 minutes and the usual questions were asked: Why should I hire you? Why do you want to work for CVS? Tell me about your previous jobs and what you liked and disliked about them?
