I applied through an employee referral and interviewed at Walgreens.

Interview Details – Applied for a job online and through networking, was introduced to a recruiter who introduced me to another recruiter who emailed me to set up a phone screen. Once the phone screen took place it was about 17 minutes and very general and basic. She asked about previous experience and I walked her through my responsibilities. She then asked what was my favorite project to worked on.

Interview Question – No difficult or unexpected questions   Answer Question

I applied online and the process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Walgreens in August 2012.

Interview Details – Online application. The rest of the application was finished in store. There was a standard test of what would you do scenarios, cash handling questions, and availability. Once called back for an interview you have a sit down conversation with the store manager sharing experience and answering a few basic interview questions.

Interview Question – How do you handle and angry customer when management is not around?   Answer Question

I applied online and the process took 2 months - interviewed at Walgreens.

Interview Details – Phone interview with someone in HR. She was very unenthusiastic and didn't ask any follow-up questions so I could never be sure if she had understood me. They said they would let me know within a week or two but it took them two months. Not friendly or professional.

Interview Question – All behavioral questions. Think of specific situations from work or school.   Answer Question

The process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Walgreens in May 2007.

Interview Details – From what I remember the year I applied for the internship there was like 50 applicants for 6 spots and the reason that is relavant is because the year before they had more spots than applicants. Basically you can easily land any job while going to college, just use the career canter. Obviously dress in a suit and make sure to keep that smile on your face through that whole thing because thats one huge thing they look at.

The process took a day - interviewed at Walgreens in December 2011.

Interview Details – I have only participated in a first round interview with this company so far, I am waiting to here if I made it to the second round. My experience was very pleasant; all behavioral questions. The questions were pretty standard, and I did not feel like I was being grilled and put on the spot or trying to be tricked.
