East Las Vegas, NV

I applied online and the process took 3 days - interviewed at Walgreens in July 2012.

Interview Details – Just regular drug test, background and people skills questions. They spent more time telling me about the company and how they we should treat customers than anything else. Process was really quick and not lengthy.

Negotiation Details – no negotiation at all, what they offered is what you got.

Certified Pharmacy Technician Interview

Certified Pharmacy Technician
Grayling, MI

I applied online and the process took 6 weeks - interviewed at Walgreens in May 2014.

Interview Details – Applied online in april 2014. Got a call to come in for the in store test a month later. Drove 30 miles to take the test. Computer froze and i was asked to come back. I asked if i could go to my local Walgreens to finish the test and they didn't think so. I drove back up there 1 week later, signed on the computer and I had finished the test before it froze so there was no need to come back. The manager interviewed me then and there and I was offered 9.50 an hour 2 days a week in pharmacy and 8.00 an hour to be a cashier 2 days a week. I have 20+ years experience and could tell he was not comfortable offering me that low wage. I told him how far i had to drive and he said he couldn't do any better than that. I had to decline, i think he knew that was coming. I really would have liked to work for Walgreens but i just can't for that money.

Reason for Declining – Wage offered did not meet my level of experience, i would have been working solely for gas money. Was very disappointed. I really wanted to work for them.

Certified Pharmacy Technician Interview

Certified Pharmacy Technician
Waukegan, IL

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.

Interview Question – Questions weren't anything unexpected or difficult. Describing a situation where you made a mistake can be a little tricky to word properly.   View Answer
