The manager looked at my results & I was qualified, she set up an interview with me for the next day. I got on the train & she calls to ask if I had time to interview so I ran back. I was interviewed for about 1/2 an hour & then she gave me the forms for a drug test. Took the test the following day & I was scheduled to start work 2 days later.

    Pharmacist Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Kansas City, KS
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Kansas City, KS
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took a dayinterviewed at Walgreens in December 2011.

    Interview Details

    Interviews are behavioral based questions. Nothing new or exciting, but they would prefer answers based on previous pharmacy experience. If you have no experience as a pharmacist yet, just draw from internship, rotation, or tech-work experience instead. This is a hoop to jump through. Unless you have a serious deficiency in your application or freak out in your interview, you will be hired. Turnover is usually very high in most districts.

    Negotiation Details
    No negotiation attempted or needed. Walgreen's pays at the top or near the top of all retail salaries, and benefits are competitive or equal to other retail chains.

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took a weekinterviewed at Walgreens in October 2010.

    Interview Details

    Generic interview for a low position. EXA had conducted interview, asked about previous work experiences and how I dealt with specific situations, such as not getting along with coworkers/managers and what the resolutions were. Was fairly lax, other managers/employees were in and out of the office during the interview. I was new in town and after accepting the job offer, I was given poor directions as to where I was to submit my drug test. I arrived at the facility as they were closing and was fortunately able to return the next day.
