    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person – interviewed at Express Scripts.

    Interview

    Supervisor was late. Wasn't very professional alot of people declined the position, the questions were similar as though you were being asked the same question over and over again. I got the feeling I wasn't being just off my qualifications at all. Overall it felt like a waste of time.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Express Scripts.

    Interview

    Applied online, was contacted by recruiter a week later. Standard interview questions for analysts, moderate difficulty as you advanced further in the rounds. Interview questions and style seemed to vary based on style of recruiter and hiring manager with some having a greater practical vs theoretical focus. Interviews were interactive, allowed questions to better understand role.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2+ monthsinterviewed at Express Scripts (Saint Louis, MO).

    Interview

    The process was extremely drawn out. It took over two months from the initial interview to the offer. Little feedback or communication was offered by ESI during the time frame. The only communication occurred when I contacted them. The actual interview was a group interview.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 4+ monthsinterviewed at Express Scripts (Saint Louis, MO) in April 2013.

    Interview

    Process was slow, dragged out over four months but interviews with eventual peers were challenging and professional yet reflective of the upbeat nature of the department. Recruiting staff was subpar; gal was catty and often negative overall and seemed frustrated by questions once an offer was submitted. If my interviews with my peers hadn't been so great, I probably would have given up and missed what's been a wonderful opportunity.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Express Scripts (Bloomington, MN) in September 2012.

    Interview

    Hiring process was pretty quick. Generally have to do two part interviews if you are from inside. If you are from outside, three part interviews. First you will have a phone screening with the recruiter. After you complete that process, the manager interview and then meet with Hiring Director and HR manager.

    Didn't have negotiation. They declined my counter offer. The pay is pretty low compare to other Supervisors in healthcare.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 daysinterviewed at Express Scripts (Tempe, AZ) in October 2014.

    Interview

    The hiring process was pretty painful because of the the behavioral questions. I don't think the hiring should be based only off of how well someone can tell a story. It should be based on both how well someone answers the behavior questions as well as regular interview questions.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Express Scripts (Saint Louis, MO) in May 2015.

    Interview

    There were two back-to back sessions of 2-on-1 interviews, each about 30 minutes. Friendly individuals; in retrospect, there is a feeling that there may have been weighted questions in which an interviewee might inadvertently blurt something to effectively be removed from consideration. Main gripe: There was never any word from a company representative after the interview that the position would not be offered.

    Linux Systems Administrative Interview

    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through a staffing agency. The process took 1 dayinterviewed at Express Scripts (Saint Louis, MO) in April 2011.

    Interview

    The Interview process was annoying. They tend to ask questions that involve rather complicated and obscure scenarios over the more common sense type questions. Interviewers treated you like you were at a police station being interrogated. Disrespectful, condescending, and they kept me waiting. I asked them this question: ""Please describe your culture to me"" The response I got was one sentence: ""You go where we put you"". I've been through 2 interviews there. One of my two interviews was a phone interview. When I dialed into the meeting line they were finishing a previous phone interview that went over its allotted time. I got to hear half the interview questions before they even got to me. All I did was hang up and dial back in.

    Interview Questions

    • One question involved compiling a Binary on a system that didn't allow compliling. A simple question but it was worded in an awkward and counter-intuitive manner.   1 Answer

    Reasons for Declining

    Combative attitudes of the interviewers. Many and varied negative personal anecdotes from former employees and colleagues who have interviewed there. Numerous bad reviews on this very website.
