    Application Details

    I interviewed online. The process took 1 week - interviewed 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?" "Describe a time when you decided not to help a customer" "What would you do if the line was really long and a customer says that something is $2 off but needs verification?"   View Answer
    Negotiation Details
    There was no negotiation.

    I interviewed online. The process took a day - interviewed at Walgreens in November 2012.

    Interview Details

    You have to bother them a lot for them to look at your resume. Which they didnt even look at. The most unqualified person can work here and you just need to know how to work a register

    I interviewed online. The process took 1 week - interviewed at Walgreens in February 2013.

    Interview Details

    I filled out the application online and maybe a week later I was called in to fill out an assessment in store. After I was called into an interview and I was told I would be called within the next week to see if I could be hired. I didn't receive a call on the day I was supposed to find out if I had or had not been hired so I called and was told I got the job.

    Application Details

    I interviewed online. The process took 2 days - interviewed 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.

    Interview Questions
    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.

    I interviewed online. The process took 3 days - interviewed at Walgreens in May 2013.

    Interview Details

    Completed application and testing process at home on computer, then was called into store to complete testing process there on the computer. Not difficult.

    Interview Questions
    • I didn't really have an interview, I was pretty much hired based upon past retail employment and testing scores.   Answer Question
    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.

    Online application. You must then finish remaining application in store on computer. Basic test of what would you do scenarios, cash handling questions, and availability. Once called back for an interview you have a sit down conversation with the store manager sharing experience and answering a few basic interview questions.

    Very flexible with hours. Let them know in advance if you are working elsewhere or going to school and they will most likely work around it.
