    Beauty Advisor Interview

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took a weekinterviewed at Walgreens in June 2014.

    Interview Details

    I applied online for the Cosmetics department (so I'm assuming that would be a Beauty Advisor) and about 3 days later I went in to take the skills assessment test. The next morning I got a call from the store manager to set up an interview for the following day (Sat). I went to the interview in the afternoon and it was pretty laid back. The manager was really cool and nice. She asked me a few questions and discussed my availability and what shift I would work if hired. After that, she offered me the job and said that I would just need to do the drug test/background check.

    Interview Questions
    • "Name a time where you dealt with a difficult customer" "Describe a time when you had to multitask" " "What did you do at your previous job?"

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 2 daysinterviewed at Walgreens.

    Interview Details

    The interview process was not a long one. Having done very well on my skills test there was really not that much more information to give besides the usual scenario questions. For example, describe a scenario in which you feel that you went over and beyond what would be expected of you in that position.

    Negotiation Details
    There was really no negotiation phase. I did almost initiate one after finding out that the starting pay was only 8.00 per hour. However, I feel fortunate to have found a position with this company.

The next morning, I called the store manager, and asked to check the status of my application. After reviewing my application, he called me for a interview the following Monday (it was a weekend).

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 3+ monthsinterviewed at Walgreens in September 2013.

    Interview Details

    Applied July 9, received a call to set up an interview from store manager on August 29.
    Went for interview September 3. Went very well we talked like old friends a lot about my previous job experience and how much I qualified for that position. He let me know he had one more interview following mines and he would call me if he was interested. He called me at 9 the next morning and asked me to come get the drug test form and I was hired pending background and drug results took the drug test September 5 he told me it takes 1-2 weeks. Hadn't heard from the manager so I decided to call on September 19 (2weeks&1day later) and he said my drug test came up diluted and I had never heard that before and he also said he never seen that before. He said he would give me a call back to let me know what can be done. He finally called me back October 4 and told me the system was frozen and it finally went thru. I told him I was already employed and I thanked him and he let me know if I need a job to call him and he apologized.

    Really positive experience and nice guy.

    Interview Details

    The interview was very basic. I did not have a resume. I was in highschool. I applied online. Manager met me and asked me very basic questions. Described the job. Asked if I was available nights and weekends, which I was. If you aren't available nights, weekends, and some holidays then do not apply.

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 1+ weekinterviewed at Walgreens.

    Interview Details

    The whole process didn't take but a couple of days after my application was completely in. I got called in for the interview and I could tell immediately that the manager was a cool person. This interview was different from most because it didn't contain those typical "what would you do" customer service questions. She was more interested in learning about who I am and what I like pertaining to beauty. The only specific questions she really asked was have I dealt intense situations on the job and an example on how i worked well in a group. But other than that it was more so a conversation and I think she liked my personality. I'd say the interview depends on the store manager and may not be the same.

    Negotiation Details
    I was told that I could pretty much be guaranteed 30+ hours a week and now that has been cut down to 18 because retail is making the move to having no full-time non-management employees to cut costs.
