    Staff Pharmacist Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate  in  Woodland Hills, CA
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Woodland Hills, CA
    Application Details

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2 weeks - interviewed at CVS Health in October 2013.

    Interview Details

    Nowadays, many companies ask potential candidates to submit resume online. This process is like tossing a rock into a quicksand, and then straining and waiting patiently hoping to hear a splash. As a pharmacist, once you submitted/completed your application online, get some contact information (emails, phone numbers, etc.) to follow-up. This beats playing the waiting game and reduces the chance that your online application was lost in the shuffle.

    Interview Questions
    • How do you address the issue of understaffing when the pharmacy is already understaffed and your current pharmacy staff repeatedly make the same, careless mistakes and expressed no desire to improve?   Answer Question

    Clerk/Cashier Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate  in  Anaheim, CA
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Anaheim, CA
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 1 week - interviewed at CVS Health in August 2014.

    Interview Details

    I went ahead and applied online, It took about a week to get a phone call. The online application is pretty simple and to the point. I really liked the "virtual try-out" because I believe that gives the employer a good sense of what you are good at and your strong points. Wish more companies did that.

    Store Manager Trainee Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate  in  Long Beach, CA
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Long Beach, CA
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 6 months - interviewed at CVS Health.

    Interview Details

    I was interviewed twice over the phone and called into five separate interviews. One time the manager did not show up and his assistant "quasi-interviewed" me...not knowing I had an appointment. Two different managers told me the company was under a "reign of terror", that the job was terrible right now and that long term managers were being let go. A fourth manager was only vaguely interested... he asked the same question 3 times... how long I had actually held my last position.

    I believe I had a lot to offer CVS. I am sorry that the morale is so low... I can not help that CVS bought the chain you were trained in and that you hate your employer. If things are so bad perhaps you need to have people conduct the interviews who represent your company better.

    Cashier Sales Associate Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate  in  Pico Rivera, CA
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Pico Rivera, CA
    Application Details

    I applied in-person. The process took a day - interviewed at CVS Health in April 2009.

    Interview Details

    My interview lasted an hour. While I was very comfortable during the interview I could not shake the feeling I was being slightly talked down to and not as an equal. I was open and honest about my work history and really sold my skills and experience. There were many questions about my previous jobs and why I felt i could fullfill the position i was applying for.

    Interview Questions
    • Why do you feel you deserve this position compared to any other applicant?   Answer Question
    Negotiation Details
    There was no negotiating. You are offered minimum wage and it's your choice if you would like to except it or not. They are not going to negotiate on that.

    Pharmacy Technician Trainee/Pharmacy Service Associate Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate  in  Anaheim, CA
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Anaheim, CA
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 2 months - interviewed at CVS Health in May 2014.

    Interview Details

    I posted my resume on the CVS website and I received a call about 2 months later asking me to come in for an interview. The first woman I spoke to was very nice and I had to take a quick quiz about basic pharmacy tech stuff such as conversions and translating prescriptions. It was a very casual interview - she just asked me to tell her about myself and we talked about my personality to make sure I was able to handle customer service, then she said that she would submit my resume directly to the stores in her area that were hiring.

    I got a call the next week from the pharmacist working in the store that needed a tech and I spoke to her and she just talked to me about the hours and any previous experience I had in a pharmacy and with customer service. She then told me to apply directly to her store and I received the email saying I got the job about 3 days later.

    Interview Questions
    • Tell me about yourself.

      The interview was very casual but maybe I was just lucky and got a nice interviewer?
