I applied in-person and the process took 2+ weeks - interviewed at Walgreens.
Interview Details – Hiring process was fairly straight forward. Walked in a local store and applied at the computer in the office. There was an easy skills test and a semi-lengthy personality test. Applied for three locations and received a call about a week later asking for me to come in for an interview. Interview was short and sweet, and I was officially hired about a week later after passing a drug test. Manager seemed more interested in hiring someone with experience than anything else, but I also got the feeling that they look for personable people, customer service being their main priority. Luckily I had/have both.

About a month later I received a call from the store manager saying that there were no vacancies at the store I had applied to but that there was an opening at a different store in town and that they were very interested that I set up a date for an interview with them.

Very Easy Interview
I applied in-person and the process took 3 days - interviewed at Walgreens in September 2012.
Interview Details – The hiring process was pretty terrible to be honest. Every time I came in to talk with someone about my application there was a different manager working, turns out they were all Assistant managers, which noone voluntarily told me when I came in. I was eventually hired by the old store manager, (he was removed immediately after i was hired) I was given no explanation of benefits, rundown on where to park, where to eat, how long my breaks/lunch would be, how to clock in, literally none of this information was provided to me when I initially started working here.
Eventually I got the handle on most of this, and it's been great with the new management.
Negotiation Details – I did not negotiate for anything I didn't realize this was a possibility as it was my 3rd job.
I applied in-person and the process took 4 days - interviewed at Walgreens in February 2013.
Interview Details – I applied online. I received no calls after a month. Although my application stay on file for 90 days, I applied online again, did a walk in to see the pharmacy manager; the hiring manager; completed the 2nd part of my application; and gave them my cover letter, resume, reference letters, certificate and license. 2 days after I did another walk in to see the store manager and luckily he was there.
I felt out of luck because all 3 of them (pharmacy manager, hiring manager, n store manager) told me there's no openings and that all of the positions are filled. However, when I met with the store manager he did interviewed me on the spot, printed out my application and told me to hang in there because I was an applicant he didn't want to lose.
THE NEXT DAY, I received a text about my application. I gave the store manager a call and he told me I was hired! First thing's first, the background check and the drug test then next will be training then after I will be working full time.
My advices to any applicant who is applying at Walgreens, don't put your hopes down and keep on applying. Although, they may have mentioned there's no openings show them that you're the best candidate to fill any positions, show them that you're still interested, dress professionally when meeting them and turn in your cover letter, resume, any reference letters, certificate and license. Although, those things are not required to be turned in, it'll boost up your status as an applicant. This will make you out shine other applicants. Don't forget to shake their hand and introduce yourself.
Advice that the store manager gave me "Be persistent." He said the key to the door was to "be persistent".

Negotiation Details – I did not negotiate the pay rate because it'll give an impression of interest in the money and not the job.
