Assistant Manager (MGT) Interview

Assistant Manager (MGT)
Dunwoody, GA

I applied online - interviewed at Walgreens in July 2014.

Interview Details – Hiring manager very non attentive during interview. Cell phone went off several times so she missed some answers that were given. It felt like the interview was over before it began. I was very shocked at the unprofessional attitude displayed by someone who holds such a high position there.
