Easy Interview

Application

I applied online. The process took a weekinterviewed at CVS Health (Indianapolis, IN).

Interview

Very easy and comfortable. It will all depend on that particular store manager, some are a lot more hands on and particular than others. I've met some that are like drill sergeants and some that are like your college buddy.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at CVS Health (Berkeley, CA) in August 2014.

    Interview

    The hiring process was very easy and relaxed. Basically, if you get a call from the pharmacy manager, you will most likely get hired. At the interview, they just want to make sure you are competent and capable of working alongside others in a busy setting. They really just want to get to know you, and I felt that the interview was more of an back and forth conversation between myself and the person interviewing.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ monthsinterviewed at CVS Health (Tulsa, OK) in July 2014.

    Interview

    Taking almost a month to respond to my application, I was asked to interview with the first pharmacist. The interview went very well, I and the pharmacist were pleased with the initial interaction and I was asked to return in ten days for the second pharmacist's interview. Again, the interview went well, similar routine interview questions were asked, and I left satisfied with my responses. Two weeks passed, and I finally called the pharmacy to inquire about the status of my possible employment. I was asked to return in four days, to the pharmacy, for another (final) interview with the third pharmacist. After waiting almost an hour, I was told to return the next day, at the same time, for the interview. It also went well, and I was satisfied with the answers and my performance. Two weeks from this interview, I received an offer letter for "full time employment" at "$9 an hour". My manager/Pharmacist to be notified me in a short text stating, "hey, you're hired, check your email". I thought this was the greatest response ever, especially from a future boss, and I was excited to receive the letter.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online – interviewed at CVS Health (Rockville, MD) in June 2014.

    Interview

    The interview process was fairly simple. This was a part time position and the Pharmacy manger literally begged me to come for the interview and she will "try to get me as many hours as she can" since i was looking for a full time position. the interview itself was also simple and short; problem solving senarios and why you choose this company. The a few days later i called a call saying they have chosen me and would email forms to complete and then schedule on-boarding class. The bad thing is that, they were hiring me (a CPhT as a pharmacy tech trainee and starting pay is 10.00 then after the onboarding was over, i would get an increase in pay. I needed a job (i was so bored and broke at home during the summer break with no money and no way to have quality fun) so i accepted the position. Let's see how it goes!
