    I applied online. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at CVS Health.

    Interview

    Very informal interview, asked what my plans were in school, after school, and how being a pharmacy tech would help me in my future endeavors. Make sure you help to keep the interview moving along. They like to see individuals that are able to provide satisfaction verbally and friendly, they don't want to see someone who just gets straight to the point with blase answers. They're stuck in a corner of a store and need entertainment!

    Took weeks to hear back on my application. The interview was informal - just me and the pharmacy manager in the store's office and he was very relaxed and asked very basic questions. Was very honest and straight forward, yet still professional. Just talked one on one about me, my application, and the job for about a half hour. Overall a positive experience.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 daysinterviewed at CVS Health (Cincinnati, OH) in June 2015.

    Interview

    We sat away from the actual pharmacy. It was very laid back. Almost like a conversation. It was a little awkward because customers were still getting their medication and having the RPH step away for an interview put all of the pressure on the tech

    I applied online. The process took a weekinterviewed at CVS Health (Phoenix, AZ) in June 2015.

    Interview

    I was contacted by a recruiter 1 business day after submitting an application and scheduled for an interview later that week. Only one of the employees scheduled to interview me was in attendance. I was asked to perform some simple calculations, transcribe some common sigs, and give the name and usage of five drugs. Beyond that, the interview questions were very standard and overall it was a very relaxed and casual affair. I was given a job offer by phone from the recruiter only hours after the interview. All paperwork was completed online.

    Interview

    I applied online for different locations. 2 weeks later I got a call from one of the Pharmacy Managers, she said she received my resume and she asked me about my college major, availability, and why I choose my major. My major is radiology and I told her I wanted to enter the healthcare field because I enjoy helping people. She liked my answer and said she enjoyed my phone interview asked me to come in for a in person interview. I then said I had no idea this was a phone interview, I thought we were just talking and she laughed. I went in for the interview and she asked me questions about my availability, my major, my current jobs and duties. She also asked me a lot of customer service questions and she asked was I a fast learner. She then explained the hiring process and training and told me she would give me a call tomorrow. I got a call from her the next day saying I got the job and I received my offer email a week later and accepted it.
