Pittsburgh, PA

I applied online and the process took 3 weeks - interviewed at Giant Eagle in February 2010.

Interview Details – 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.
