Coordinator Interview

Coordinator
Deerfield, IL

I applied online - interviewed at Walgreens in June 2014.

Interview Details – The first interview is over the phone with a recruiter. Here they ask you questions about you and your resume. They also ask you one or two behavioral questions. If you qualify for their position they will send you to the next round of interviews. Here you will meet with a higher up employee that will ask you several behavioral questions and will open the floor for you to ask questions as well. This interview is in person.

Interview Question – The questions are your basic behavioral questions.. You can google questions like that online. There was nothing really out of the ordinary or unexpected. They really want you to answer using your personal examples and skills/traits that you possess and implemented to complete a task.   Answer Question

Assistant Category Manager Interview

Assistant Category Manager
Deerfield, IL

I applied through college or university and the process took 3 months - interviewed at Walgreens in May 2014.

Interview Details – I became aware of the position through my university and I applied online. I then received a phone interview with a recruiter who was warm and friendly. A few weeks later I got scheduled for an in person interview in Deerfield. I had to take an Excel test at one building, then drive to a different building and interview with managers in the merchandising department. The interview was very robotic and the managers did not try to sell Walgreens as a company to me. It was a bad culture fit for me.

Interview Question – The analytics test was fine, but you can take the outcome in so many different directions it is difficult to be right.   Answer Question

Merchandising Exposure Program Intern Interview

Merchandising Exposure Program Intern
Deerfield, IL

I applied online and the process took 1+ week - interviewed at Walgreens in March 2014.

Interview Details – First Round Interview was a 30 minute phone interview that was strictly behavior-based. Questions that were asked were straightforward and went something like this... Tell me about a time that you had to work with an unsatisfied customer. It only took them about 1 day to get back to me about scheduling a second round interview.
Second Round Interview was geared more toward the position you were interested in. They asked a lot about your experience and how it could help you as an Intern and Walgreens in general.

Interview Question – What are the ways in which you analyze data differently than normal.   Answer Question
