    I had an interview and it seemed pretty professional. I thought I did well, but I got an email saying I didn't get the job (with very poor spelling and grammar).

    Certified Pharmacy Technician Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Belvidere, IL
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks - interviewed at ShopKo Stores in July 2014.

    Interview Details

    The interview lasted about 10 minutes. I believe the drug test took longer than any questions asked. The Pharm mgr did not ask any behavioral type questions, only about experience. I had no experience other than a 120 hr Internship & was offered the position on the spot. I then waited for the background check from the headquarters which took about 5 days. Made an appointment with the store manager to go over all the company details & set up pay deposit. Immediately after the 2 hours with HR, I was working 4 hours in the pharmacy.

    Interview Questions

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks - interviewed at ShopKo Stores.

    Interview Details

    Minimal questions. Not impressive. More often than not, incompetent people were hired by upper management. Seemed if one was a warm body you were hired. Also false promises made during interview that my many years of experience would be brought to attention of DM. This NEVER happened.

    Interview Questions
    Negotiation Details
    There was no negotiation. Plan on 7.25 to 8.00 an hours regardless of your experience.
    Deep regret I accepted employment with Shopko. Had MUCH more experience than interviewer and 95% of employees on staff.

    My interview wad at 3 pm so I walked in a went to customer services to asked for my interviewer a couple minutes early. IIt took about ten minutes for her to come get me. When she finally came, we went to her office. She asked me a couple questions and wrote my answers down. Some of the questions that I remember were: tell me about yourself, give a time when I was given good customer serviced, asked if I smile available on Black Friday and why do I want to work there. It was less than five minutes. She called for the store manager to come and so I waited for like three minutes.

      3. Explain a situation in school where you took a leadership role
      4. Explain a time where you had good customer service
      5. Explain a time where you had bad customer service.
      6. Explain a time in school where you were frustrated with someone in a project because they didn't do their part.
      7. Do you have any questions? (Make sure you come with at least three questions)

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks - interviewed at ShopKo Stores.

    Interview Details

    Pretty typical interview process. Phone interview first with basic questions. In person interviews with 3 different people. Again basic questions like tell me a time you did and how did you handle Y". By the third person I felt like I was repeating myself a lot and it might have been a better idea to do a panel interview to reduce the redundancy. Offer was made over the phone.

    Pharmacy Technician Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Lincoln, NE
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks - interviewed at ShopKo Stores in December 2013.

    Interview Details

    I applied online. The pharmacy manager called to set up the interview. The interview consisted of behavioral questions about handling upset customers, multitasking, prioritizing, dealing with higher than normal work volume. It took about a week for them to contact me regarding the decision because I applied just before the Christmas/New Year's Eve holiday. Total time from application to start date was about a month due to the holiday.

    Interview Questions
    • I don't feel like any of the questions were really difficult. All questions were within legal limits and related to the job duties.   Answer Question

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 4 weeks - interviewed at ShopKo Stores.

    Interview Details

    2 phones interviews simple basic retail questions anyone would ask. Face to face with store manager and then face to face with district manager and store manager. Face to face with DM seemed to be an interrogation and looking for what answer he wanted and not what your previous experience offered you.

    Interview Questions
    • What have you been doing to professionally develop yourself over the last year..( mind you I took a year off to stay home with baby and wasn't doing anything and he was kind of not nice about that answer).   Answer Question
    Reasons for Declining

    No one seemed to be on the same page when it came to store level and corporate level and don't take their word when they say they will call next day...I would have to call them days later to follow up that they had not called.
