    Neutral Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Walgreens (Arlington, TX) in June 2015.

    Interview

    I applied online, then went into the store to take a skills assessment the next week. The interview followed the skills assessment with the store manager. Very friendly and laid back. The interview lasted over an hour, I thought for sure I'd get a call back. but didn't. I took another job somewhere else. The manager called me today, a month later, wanting to hire me on the spot. if I passed the drug test. I didn't even go to the diagnostic center because I knew I wouldn't pass the drug test. I went home. Cried. Smoked about it. Now applying elsewhere.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4 days. I interviewed at Walgreens (Bemidji, MN) in June 2015.

    Interview

    I went into the process very nervous but they are very casual, they like you speak completely. They start by asking you a series of behavioral questions following the STAR format, there are specific questions tailored to the job you are applying for. I interviewed with the store manager and the pharmacy manager, the store manager was so bubbly as am I, you will begin to know if you have the interview if they stop the scripted questions and talk a lot about you. That's is exactly what they did! After giving them my background in retail and management (I'm 18) they said fantastic and when we finished they told me that they would talk to me on Friday (two days after my interview) but the store manager called me this morning on Thursday (the day after my interview)

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at Walgreens (Hudson, FL) in June 2015.

    Interview

    I had to go in a take an assessment on their computer, after they gave me a appointment for an interview. I went to the interview which lasted for about 30 minutes and I knew that once the interviewer said that if she didn't call me by a certain day that I did not have the job. I believe that they already decided who they were going to hire before they interviewed me. I was disappointed to go to an interview where I surmissed the candidate was already picked before I walked through the front door.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Walgreens.

    Interview

    Simply asked about pharmacy experiences and why Walgreen's seemed to be a fit for me? I had previous intern work experience with Walgreen's and that almost guranteed me a position once I graduated pharmacy school. The district manager didn't recruit me, but happily responded to my email about interest in a position. He called me the next day to talk about openings and gave me my pick.
