Function Manager Interview

Application Details

I applied online. The process took 4 months - interviewed at Walgreens in August 2014.

Interview Details

Started with an hour long phone interview with the corp recruiter, she asked basic situational questions to get a feel of my background and experience. Very simple and easy. After I was given and onsite interview with the HR manager and Operations Manager. This was about an hour and a half long, again very easy asking situational questions, just remember to use the STAR format and you'll be fine. I was also interviewing for the I/O Ops Mgr position as well so, after that interview about 30 days later I was scheduled to interview with the GM and Mgr of Ops. This was about 2 hours, situational just like the rest very easy interview.

Interview Questions
  • There were no difficult questions all situational and experience based   View Answer
Negotiation Details
No negotiation, the corp HR called and made the offer, the offer was very good so I did not attempt to get more. However, she told me it was something I should have negotiated during the interview. I asked for a signing bonus and was told that had to be discussed at the interview.

    Interview Details

    The interview process for managers is usually 2 parts. They are very straight forward. They ask all situational questions so be prepared to come up with what the situation was, what you did and how was the outcome. I have seen a lot of the first interviews be over the phone then if you score high enough get a second in person interview.

    Interview Questions
    • I don't think any are too difficult just make sure to answer with situation action plan and outcome on every one. the interview is scored on points so if you hit on all parts your score is better.   Answer Question

    Application Details

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took a day - interviewed at Walgreens in March 2010.

    Interview Details

    Applied online, was contacted 3 weeks later for ana interview. Was interviewed by the Operations manager and the HR supervisor. The interview took over 2 and a half hours followed by an agreement to a background check. Questions were based on one would coach and motivate teams, challenging your superiors and how comfortable you would be managing people with special needs. At the end there was a quick survey of skills needed to perform the job based on a scale of; "no knowledge" to "very knowledgeable". The culture seemed somewhat relaxed, did not get a very enthusiastic vibe of management and team members.
