    Application Details

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

    Interview Details

    I applied online, my teacher called and gave me a reference, I went up there that same day after school and talked to the store manager. He was nice and he seemed to come off as not much of a people person. There was actually no real interview, he just told me to go to care now and get a drug test. Next thing I know I was working there.

    I interviewed in-person - interviewed at Walgreens in December 2011.

    Interview Details

    None that i could remember really. It was so long ago. I do remember that they where fairly easy. If there where any technical question they where things like what is post? Just very basic IT questions. I was always told they only have few set questions that HR will let them ask.

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Dallas, TX
    Application Details

    I interviewed online. The process took 4+ weeks - interviewed at Walgreens.

    Interview Details

    The hiring process has completely changed over the last 10 years. The interview process now is behavioral with the district manager and the market talent director. Lots of preparation is needed because i have heard questions are difficult. Opportunities for advancement are now limited because the company downsized positions and removed lower level assistant positions.

    Application Details

    I interviewed online. The process took 4 days - interviewed at Walgreens in September 2012.

    Interview Details

    I completed my application online and then I went in to take the skill assessment in the store. After I was done I left my name and number with one of the managers. He told me to call and speak with ---- who was in charge of hiring the next day. I called and he said that he will look over my application and give me a call back in two hours and if he didn't he said to just call him. I had to call him and he told me to come in that afternoon. The employees were friendly an helpful but they were busy and the interview was short and to the point. There were six behavioral questions. I can't quite remember them all. He said he will give me a call back because there were several other interviews and so I waited and he called back two hours later and told me to do a drug test and we went over my availability.

    Service Clerk Interview

    Anonymous Employee  in  Irving, TX

    Application Details

    I interviewed online. The process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Walgreens.

    Interview Details

    I was trying to find a replacement job, because currently I am working in food, so I applied at walgreens. They called two days later to set up an interview, and the next day I went in. First I had to do the skills test thing, which to me seemed easy, it just took a really long time. Then I walked around the store for a bit because the manager I guess was busy, I had to wait a while which was a little annoying. Finally interviewed, and the manager was friendly, but I didnt like how she conducted the interview. She kept asking the same questions twice on accident and it was kinda weird. . Then toward the end she realized I was 17 and not 18, even tho I could see clearly on the page it had that I was a minor on it, and she just had realized this :/. So she was concernced I wouldnt be able to work past 12. Then finally, she said the pay would be $7.75.....which I didnt expect to be so low. I make 8 bucks an hour at a fast food business right now. So right then I decided I didnt want the job in my head. She called almost a complete week later and told me they went with someone else because they did better on the computer test (which kinda sucked because those things seems easy to me) but Im actually glad because if i got the job and accepted.....I'd work long hours, only night shifts, lower pay, and would be working with a scattered manager. No thanks

    I interviewed through college or university. The process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Walgreens in November 2010.

    Interview Details

    The 1 on 1 interview with the general recruiter went well. He asked several scenario based questions and offered feedback after each response. However the phone interview with the district manager was the total opposite. She seemed uninterested as if she was just reading questions off of a sheet to get the interview over with.
