    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took a weekinterviewed at Express Scripts.

    Interview Details

    It took me a long time to get an interview with ESI. After applying for this position online a recruiter contacted me a few days later and did a 15 min. phone interview asking about my self and a few behavior based interview questions. At the end the recruiter told me she would me to continue to the next round of interviews and we scheduled at the next opening I was available. My interview was all behavior based questions and I was offered the position the next day by the same recruiter.

    Interview Questions
    • ESI uses behavior based interview questions (tell me about a time you were put in "blank" situation and how did you deal with it). Go into your interview thinking about different situation you have been in with your prior/current work experience and be prepared to describe them.   Answer Question
    Negotiation Details
    I attempted to negotiate pay but was told that was not an option for this position. The recruiter told me that it is always important to ask because you never know what is available.

    Senior Account Manager Interview

    Anonymous Employee
    Anonymous Employee
    Application Details

    I applied in-person. The process took 6+ weeksinterviewed at Express Scripts.

    Interview Details

    Slow response and follow up.. I had to initiate next steps or inquire about the latest update. The process was not only painfully slow, but required many layers of interviews which lasted weeks in between.

    Interview Questions
    • Nothing unique, and interviewer said they are constantly running from call to call. Client meetings are done on the fly due to lack of time... I could sense the stress and imbalance in his voice.   View Answer
    Reasons for Declining

    The interview process was terrible. It made me question the overall integrity of the company and how they conduct themselves.

    Senior Manager - Internal Communications Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Saint Louis, MO
    Anonymous Employee in Saint Louis, MO
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at Express Scripts in April 2014.

    Interview Details

    SUPER haughty, SUPER unfriendly man in HR department called for my initial phone screening interview , told me nothing relative or relevant to the role as an external candidate and instead asked me 4-5 times what I wanted to know about the position. So, I led this interview with some of the questions I had prepared in advance. Basically this not-so-nice person acting like I was a bother and I felt as though he had something more important to do and like I was wasting his time.
    And I should mention that I obviously interview well, as I've since I have made it to third and fourth round interviews in other corp communications roles and have received offers from 2 other companies in the meantime. That's FOUR other companies for whom I was qualified enough to advance through their screening/interview process. I feel as though I may have dodged a bullet with this place. Ick.

    Interview Questions
    • The most difficult thing was being asked the same question 4-5 times. I got no explanation of the position, the organizational structure, day to day responsibilities. Nothing. waste of time.   Answer Question

    Anonymous Employee in Saint Louis, MO
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 1+ weekinterviewed at Express Scripts in April 2014.

    Interview Details

    I was contacted by phone to set up time for a phone interview with the recruiter. That interview discussed an overview of the job, my qualifications, and salary expectations. I was then called in for a 1:1 interview with the hiring manager. Both the recruiter and hiring manager were professional and kind. The interview went well, but I did not hear back for more than a month. And then it was only a generic email.
