    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.

    Interview

    Recruiter emailed Friday afternoon, indicating he had reviewed my resume and would like to call me on Monday or Tuesday to schedule interview time on Wed. in their regional district office. We connected on Monday via phone, recruiter described the job and asked about my experiences, and promised to get back to me by the end of the day or first thing the next morning. When I had not heard anything until early afternoon on Tue., I called and emailed, with no response. I called again at the end of the day and was able to reach the recruiter, who indicated they were not going to interview me onsite on Wednesday, despite their original email.

    Interview

    I applied online and received a call about three days later. I was informed to complete a skill test at my nearest store -- when I arrived they said I had completed the skills test. The employees spent about 25 minutes not knowing what to do. Next, I called my contact and he told me my file was incomplete. A few days later, he asked me to come to a store for an interview. I arrived and was told they were running more than an hour behind. Finally, when I went into the interview (there was no apology or even mention of what happened) there were two people. They asked me 10 questions, situational, STAR answer types. They called me one week later to let me know they were making a decision in a few days. It took almost 2 weeks to follow up and they told me they had gone with a different candidate.
