    Very quick, formal and to-the-point. We went to the backroom and we sat down. He looked through the paperwork and looked over my resume. He asked me the basic questions and he told me to explain why working at my previous job did not work for me and why I decided Walgreens would be the right place for me to be.

    Interview

    seemed political; it seemed like they already knew who they were going to hire; they paired up because of new people in position, they were vague on answering my questions

    Assistant Store Manager Trainee Interview

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at Walgreens (Los Gatos, CA).

    Interview

    It took about a week for one of the store managers to call me In for a one on one interview. I studied everything online, simple questions to behavioral questions, and did not sleep the night before! I showed up an hour early, walked around the store, and let an employee know I was there for an interview. While waiting, a customer thought I worked there, she asked me to help her find something, so I agreed to help. Right after I finished helping her, my store manager walked up to me. Not sure whether she was a secret shopper but it was a really coincidence! Anyways, before he proceeded to ask my 10 questions, he asked ,"Why Walgreens?" Make sure you pass that in order to have an interview! He was really nice, but at the same time, knew what he was doing or supposed to be doing! I felt right at home but still didn't want to fully be my weird self! Out of 10 questions, none of it was studied for! They were questions that no one can duplicate the answers! I stuttered, used wrong grammars, but I was really honest with my answers. He kept saying " you are doing great. You are almost there." I was really grateful to have met him. At the end, he gave my feedbacks about my interview. He loved the facts that I was very happy, (smiling and laughing), and honest. He kept repeating the fact that being manager is not about sitting in the office doing paper work, but really gotta roll up your sleeves and grind. And, I have to prepare for retail working hours (weekend, holidays, etc). He was just so understanding! He started out as an associate too! He rated me from 1-5 per question and wrote down notes for his boss, District Manager. He told me right at the spot that he would offer the position, but he has to discuss with his boss too. I said I understand because there are procedures for everything and told him not to rush. He was just really an awesome manager! He called me back next day as promised and congratulated me. Sadly I will not be trained by him but by another store manager at a different location because it was closer to my house. I expressed that I was happy but kind of disappointed because I was looking forward to learn from him. I will be doing my drug test, back ground check, and everything tomorrow. My recommendations is to really be yourself but be smart about it. You are not talking to Your friends, you are talking to your future boss. Be honest. If you have commitment, eager to learn, and great customer service, you got well for a management role! You can do it!

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 6 days. I interviewed at Walgreens (Plano, TX) in August 2015.

    Interview

    After applying online, I was called about five days later for an in-person interview with the store manager. When I arrived, I was asked to take an assessment on the computer before the interview. It consisted of opinion questions and also basic math questions, which were all multiple choice. It took about 20 minutes. After the assessment, I was led into the office and asked some fairly standard questions. The manager was very friendly. He promised to call within two days to let me know whether or not I got the job. Even though I was not offered a job, he still called to let me know, and I was very appreciative. From the time I entered to the store to the time I left was about an hour.
