    Interview

    I applied online and was contacted the next day for an over the phone interview that I was able to schedule. The woman who called didn't reply much but did come across as very nice and understanding that I was nervous. The questions however seemed negative and just tried to figure out things I did wrong instead of right. Such as my biggest obstacle? However, it was a pleasant phone call. I did get offered the 2nd interview. Wish me luck!

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at Giant Eagle (Pittsburgh, PA) in February 2010.

    Interview

    I applied for several years before finally getting a call to set up an interview. I had a phone conversation/interview first, not long after I had an on site interview with a HR person. When that went well, an on site interview with the pharmacy manager was set up within a week. This was a lot less daunting than I expected. The manager was very nice and frienfly and the interview was rather relaxed.
