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

    Interview Details

    Was notified via phone to set up an interview. First interview is with the store manager, then with the pharmacy manager. Got an offer within 2-3 days. There are about 10 hours of computer training you have to do. It's self paced and you can come in any time to do it. Then there's official training in the pharmacy.

    I didn't really have an interview when I started with Safeway in 1996. I had a friend who was a bakery manager at the store and she hired me.

    I applied online. The process took 5 daysinterviewed at Safeway in September 2012.

    Interview Details

    I applied through their online system. 2 days later, got a call and verify my application and was said they set the phone interview for me on specific day. Then, got phone interview with a manager for 30 mins.. that was a tough one.. all scenario questions and follow up questions to my answers.... 2 days later, got a call and was said I was moved forward to personal interview. Gosh...I have to thank to the manager who did the interview with me over the phone. :))) My personal interview was very positive and comfort rather than phone interview. Now, I'm waiting for their reply. I cross my fingers....phewwww....

    Interview Details

    generally a recruiter is who contacts you for an interview but i was contacted by the actual pharmacy manager. through the phone she seemed very nice and not so strict. the pharmacy manager was very nice and understood that i was nervous. She asked me a lot of skill questions.
