    I applied online – interviewed at Walgreens.

    Interview Details

    I applied online and got an email the next morning for a Saturday interview. The interviewer was friendly. He asked five questions, all "give me an example of a time..." The interview itself lasted about half an hour, and half of that was him explaining the benefits and showing me around the pharmacy.

    Customer Service Associate Interview

    Application Details

    I applied online – interviewed at Walgreens.

    Interview Details

    I applied online and was called three weeks later to take the second part of the assessment in-store. The assessment consisted of basic math questions and customer service questions. However, I thought some of the customer service questions were kind of hard because I have no work experience and was unsure with what to do in certain situations. The next day, I was called for an interview with the manager. He asked "Name a time when..." type questions, and you have to answer it from an experience you had with either school or work.

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Walgreens.

    Interview Details

    Applied online, called about my application, got a call back to schedule an interview, took an assessment with basic math which was very lengthy and time consuming, then the store manager asked questions about previous work experience. The store manager seemed completely unorganized and disinterested with the whole interview process and only concerned with how long I'd be working there.

    I applied through an employee referral – interviewed at Walgreens.

    Took a little while to get a hold of each other, but they were constant and eager to give the interview. Once the interview was obtained I was informed of all aspects that have anything to do with the position and the time slot I was applying for. It was very informative.

    Pharmacy Technician Interview

    Anonymous Employee
    Application Details

    I applied in-person – interviewed at Walgreens.

    Interview Details

    Went in to a store that I didn't actually apply at to complete the assessment and happened to meet the store manager, who looked at my score right away and seemed quite pleased. He gave me the store number and said to give him a call to set up an interview with the pharmacy manager. The room typically used for interviews was occupied so the pharmacy manager and I went into the same room where the manager was working. When asked about my future, I said that I was interested in becoming a pharmacist and was looking to apply to school this upcoming cycle and would maybe be leaving in Fall 2016. The pharmacy manager seemed okay with that but the manager sat in the back, interrupted, and basically scoffed at the thought that I wouldn't be there incredibly long term. In the end, I didn't hear back from them. The interview seemed like it could not have gone better...up until the manager heard I wanted further my education.

    I applied through a recruiter – interviewed at Walgreens.

    Interview Details

    Was contacted by a recruiter and was asked to apply online. I then proceeded to apply online and had a interview with two Walgreens employees. The questions were mostly situational and tell me about a time. I really enjoyed the two people who interviewed me. They made me feel very comfortable and I left the interview wanting to be apart of Walgreens.
