    Interview

    Quick and easy interview process. Bring a positive attitude since it is all about customer service. Expect questions and it's always a good idea to ask questions of your own, especially if you're new to the pharmacy.

    Interview Questions

    • Most of the questions were in regards to my experience in customer service and a little about me. We mostly talked a little about the pharmacy and about the store.   Answer Question

    Interview

    The interview process was pretty standard. First a I had to do a phone interview, where they asked mainly information about previous experience as well as where I went to school, followed by an in person interview with the pharmacist.

    Interview

    I submitted five applications online and received a call back an hour later to schedule an interview. I was interviewed at a local Starbucks, and was told I would get a call back letting me know whether or not I was hired the next week. It was honestly really simple and quick. My interview lasted about 15 minutes and she jotted down some notes about my availability.

    Interview

    The interview process was less than 5 minutes. They basically just want to know about my availability. The Pharmacy manager asked about my education, and work experience, pretty generic and simple.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4 daysinterviewed at CVS Health in January 2015.

    Interview

    The interview process at this particular store was not organized at all. I came in for my interview 15 minutes early and was seen right away which was a plus. The manager had a list of questions to ask but decided to ask some of her own personal questions. For the most part, the question was standard but we had several interruptions during the interview and the pharmacist came in to ask me questions as well.

    Interview Questions

    • There really weren't any difficult questions. They ask me about my background, why I wanted to work there, and my availability. For me personally, the only unexpected question was, "How would my oldest sibling describe me." I've never been asked that before.   Answer Question

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 5 daysinterviewed at CVS Health (Philadelphia, PA) in January 2015.

    Interview

    The interview was in the break room and very short and informal. I never even took my coat off- I came in, shook the manager's hand, and we talked for a bit. Actually, I did most of the talking and the interview only lasted like ten minutes total. There was only really one question that the manager asked, and the rest was chatting/him explaining the training process. He called the next day I think to say I had the job So overall it was really a very easy interview.

    Interview Questions

    • They asked why I wanted to be a pharmacy tech. That was pretty much the only question.   Answer Question
