Pharmacist Interview

Interview Details

All questions were behavioral questions. You need to describe the situation and what you did to improve the outcome. I actually like those questions because they test my logical and communication skills. As a pharmacist, it is important to be able to communicate efficiently with the customers and other healthcare professionals

    Application Details

    I applied online – interviewed at Target.

    Interview Details

    I applied to a position that was listed on the Target Careers website and was contacted via email the next day to set up a time for a phone interview scheduled for the following week. I interviewed with a pharmacy recruiter and the interview lasted about 30 minutes. She told me more information about the store location and benefits for the part time staff pharmacist position. She asked me to walk her through my previous work history, why retail, why Target, why this city (as it would require relocation for me) before moving on to the behavioral interview questions.

    STAR process, was an internal candidate and had three interviews. Overall process took almost four months. Just make sure you have the situations made up before hand-whats your biggest mistake, stress on leadership, etc.

    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2+ monthsinterviewed at Target in November 2014.

    Interview Details

    3 tier interview: HR, "team leader", "store leader". You will never have the opportunity to talk to a pharmacy staff/pharmacist during interview process.
    1st interview: HR had recorded my phone number incorrectly. So, I had to reschedule my interview. 2nd interview: interviewer forgot about my scheduled interview. So, I had to reschedule. 3rd interview: interviewer was 10 minutes late at calling me and she was very quick to get the interview over with. It was a 2 month process. These were all done via phone interviews. They are looking for some particular people to employ. At least, this particular store manager.

    Target is a great company. But I find their interview process overly lengthy and very unprofessional.

    Interview Details

    Worked for the company as a pharmacy intern. Received an email to apply with the company for a pharmacist position. Eventually got a call for an interview 2 months later. The interviewer had never interviewed a pharmacy candidate before and essentially my future career with target was based on 4 questions. It was not a pleasant experience like interviewing for my internship was.

    The interview questions are experience based. So they may ask questions like, "tell me about a time when you disagreed with your superior and how did you handle the situation."
