    Pharmacist Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate  in  Portland, OR
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Portland, OR
    Application Details

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 3 weeks - interviewed at Walgreens in August 2014.

    Interview Details

    I contacted the area supervisor directly and was asked to send my CV and complete the online application. I received a phone call to schedule an interview within a few days. The interview was very straightforward, beginning with a few questions the supervisor had, followed by a set of standardized Walgreens questions that were typical of what one would expect to be asked. Everyone at the office was very professional and courteous. Follow-up took two weeks at which time I was sent an offer letter.

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 4 months - interviewed at Walgreens.

    Interview Details

    The process was very long and drawn out. They will initially work through their in house recruiters who are slow to respond. Once an interview is scheduled it can take up to a month to even hear anything back from the company. The individuals had no idea about the position they were hiring for and the questions asked were caned questions

    Application Details

    I applied online - interviewed at Walgreens in August 2014.

    Interview Details

    I applied on-line. I got a call the next day and an interview was set up for the next week. When I got there for my interview I was brought into a room to do a skill assessment. I had to wait 25 minutes for the manager to come in and see if I was finished. We did an interview after that. I was asked 5 of the behavioral questions. I was able to ask any questions I had.

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 4 months - interviewed at Walgreens in August 2014.

    Interview Details

    Started with an hour long phone interview with the corp recruiter, she asked basic situational questions to get a feel of my background and experience. Very simple and easy. After I was given and onsite interview with the HR manager and Operations Manager. This was about an hour and a half long, again very easy asking situational questions, just remember to use the STAR format and you'll be fine. I was also interviewing for the I/O Ops Mgr position as well so, after that interview about 30 days later I was scheduled to interview with the GM and Mgr of Ops. This was about 2 hours, situational just like the rest very easy interview.

    Interview Questions
    • There were no difficult questions all situational and experience based   View Answer
    Negotiation Details
    No negotiation, the corp HR called and made the offer, the offer was very good so I did not attempt to get more. However, she told me it was something I should have negotiated during the interview. I asked for a signing bonus and was told that had to be discussed at the interview.

    Application Details

    I applied through a staffing agency. The process took 2 days - interviewed at Walgreens.

    Interview Details

    Depending on the division and department, there will be one key interviewer. Best to go through a recruiting company to get in on a contract to hire. Not much chance for a direct hire unless you know someone who recommends you.

Pros: “Computer system is great when it works. District scheduler is awesome at finding coverage for you and giving you options to cover extra shifts. Benefits ok but not what they use to be.” Full Review
