    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a weekinterviewed at Pharmaca.

    Interview

    I applied online through their website. I received a call from the store manager for an in person interview with the store manager and their lead practitioner. There are no set interview guidelines. Questions focus on service and how you balance task. They will ask some situation questions, though due to no set questions by the company every store manager might be different. Walking into the store there were carts with product laying about. Only two people were working so it seemed like they were stretched sort of thin. The second interview with the lead practitioner was more of a meet and greet. No questions about retail and just a quick overview of my resume and previous experience. They check to see your knowledge of natural health and wellness. A third interview with the district manager happens afterwards. This one feels more professional. A follow up call with an offer on a pay range and start date. Relatively easy interview so long as your resume did most of the talking upfront.

    Interview Questions

    Negotiation

    You can negotiate for a higher price. Store managers have to keep an average wage for the store at a certain limit so they might be flexible to do more.

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 1+ weekinterviewed at Pharmaca (Boulder, CO) in September 2008.

    Interview

    Pharmaca has an excellent process for interviews. You interview with the manager hiring as a face to face and are offered a position if the match is there. There is no red tape, it is a quick process and a very professional process. Pharmaca looks for culture fit along with an understanding of integrative medicine or the simple interest in integrative medicine. It is a great opportunity for pharmacist wanting to understand compounding as well as blending eastern and western medicine.

    After applying online was sent an email with a time and date for possible interview. I accepted and was interviewed by two persons (store manager and HR rep.) The interview was very relaxed. Not a lot, if any, difficult questions.
