Pharmacist Interview

Anonymous Employee  in  Oklahoma City, OK
Anonymous Employee in Oklahoma City, OK
Application Details

I interviewed through an employee referral. The process took 4 days - interviewed at Target in September 2013.

Interview Details

There are usually multiple steps involved in screening, phone interview, 1-on-1 interview, group/panel interview, and an online assessment in-between. The person who received an offer from Target stated she had gone through 5 or 6 of the above in one way or another. I did 1-on-1, and 2-on-1 with an online assessment.

Questionnaire is long on behavioral situations. Some fun problem-based questions at the end.
Interview utilizes S.T.A.R. method using situation-based approaches to problems you've had in the past.

Interview Questions
  • When they press for a time where you felt you didn't fit in a situation, like "name a time when you struggled with a group on a project." Its difficult to make some things fit when you disagree that you had such a situation that might apply.   View Answer

    I interviewed online. The process took 1 week - interviewed at Target in March 2013.

    Interview Details

    Phone interview with HR. Asked several specific questions right away. I honestly was not prepared since this was the first step into the interview process. I suggest anyone looking into Target for a pharmacist position to be extremely prepared. Target pharmacy is one of the most difficult companies to obtain a position in retail pharmacy.

    I interviewed through a recruiter. The process took 4 days - interviewed at Target in June 2013.

    Interview Details

    contacted the recruiter for Texas, she had openings in Oklahoma, quick few questions from her about strength/ weaknesses ...why target ect. few days later got scheduled for interview with target store manager. Was well prepared for the STAR method questions and made it to round 3 which they dropped on me on the next day. did not go as well cause the questions were tricky and I hadn't time to prepare more scenarios and i exhausted 5 from previous interview.

    Interview Questions
    • not difficult but was one of the last and found it hard to come up with something on spot. everyone can think of something but when there is dead space on phone you start to sweat. when was a time where u had to convince someone you work with to do something they didn't want to do. Time when you took charge of group. many leadership based questions   Answer Question
