    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took a dayinterviewed at Walgreens.

    Interview Details

    I spoke with two Space Management associates for a contracted position for Floor Planning help. Given that the position was temporary and out of my usual field of work, I felt that the questions asked were difficult to answer for a new comer. The interview felt more like a hazing session.

    Interview Questions
    • I was given a scenario very specific to their business and expected to create a solution on the spot. When I did as asked, my interviewers shared an inside joke with each other and laughed.   Answer Question

    Application Details

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

    Interview Details

    Applied online. Afterwards, you must go to a store to complete a basic skills assessment that consisted of the least agree/most agree questions and basic consumer math. Afterwards you must wait for a call back in most cases. This is followed by a face to face interview with a hiring manager. Examples of questions are, "When was a time that you had to help someone with disabilities?" or " Think of a time you had to handle a difficult customer service situation. How did you resolve it?" If you meet their approval you are sent for a drug screening. Job offer is dependent on a negative result.

    Interview Questions
    • Explain a difficult situation where you had a conflict with management personnel at a previous employer. How did you resolve it?   Answer Question
    Negotiation Details
    There was no negotiation. The offer was as is. Flat non-negotiable pay by hour.
