Beauty Advisor Interview

Beauty Advisor
Olympia Fields, IL

I applied online and 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 Question – "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 applied online and 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.

Beauty Advisor Interview

Beauty Advisor

I applied online and 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 Question – There were really no surprises, only the basics.   Answer Question

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.

Beauty Advisor Interview

Beauty Advisor
College Station, TX

I applied online and 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 Question – 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.

Beauty Advisor Interview

Beauty Advisor
Crestwood, Cook, IL

I applied online and the process took a day - interviewed at Walgreens in January 2013.

Negotiation Details – 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.
