Application

I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Rite Aid.

Interview

I at first had a face to face interview with a district manager, then a phone interview and second face to face interview with another district manager for the district that was interested in hiring me. The whole process took about 14 days. I got an immediate phone call the very next day after my first interview to have a phone interview which took place about 3 days later. During the phone interview was when we set up the second in-person interview the following week. I received my offer shortly after that.

    I applied through college or university. The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at Rite Aid.

    Interview

    you will interview at least with the district manager

    if you are in pharmacy school, your school may have a day where retail companies come to interview. otherwise, check the website of the company youre interested in

    prior experience is not necessary - you can learn on the job if you're a recent graduate.
    if you've graduated a few years ago, they will probably expect experience
