Application

I applied through an employee referral. The process took 1 dayinterviewed at Walgreens.

Interview

it was a one-on-one interview with the district pharmacy manager. She came out to greet me and then asked me to tell about myself. Then she fired away with many questions, such as where do I see myself in 10years, what would I do if I caught my coworker steal something. In short, therewere lots of specific questions ESP with scenario based questions. The entire process took around 30minutes.

Interview Questions

  • Tell me about yourself Why should we hire you? Where do you see yourself in 5 years? Lots of scenario based questions to test your integrity, your patience, etc   Answer Question

    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.

    I applied online – interviewed at Walgreens (Miami Lakes, FL).

    Interview

    A lot of situational questions. Luckily the interviewer was from HR and really didn't have a clinical background. She was just writing my answers and nodding her head so it made me feel at ease.

    Interview

    I applied online and got an email the next morning for a Saturday interview. The interviewer was friendly. He asked five questions, all "give me an example of a time..." The interview itself lasted about half an hour, and half of that was him explaining the benefits and showing me around the pharmacy.

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took a weekinterviewed at Walgreens (Santa Fe Springs, CA) in February 2015.

    Interview

    Sat with the pharmacy manager and the general manager asking several questions going back and forth. Interview lasted about 30 minutes in the conference room. I was nervous but as the interview progressed it got more relaxed. Just go in and breath and answer the questions to the best of your ability.

    Interview

    I applied online and got a email from the District Manager almost a month later. I spoke to the District Manager on the phone to get an idea of what is needed in that District; I scheduled an interview later in the week. I had a face to face interview where the manager used the Walgreens standardized interview questions; lots of situation based questions. The interview itself took about an hour or so.

    Interview

    I was an intern and then was interviewed for a pharmacist position. It was only one interview with basic questions. The supervisor was quite personable and easy to talk to, it did not feel like an interview.

    I applied through college or university – interviewed at Walgreens (Memphis, TN) in November 2014.

    The interview went well; mostly behavioral type situations. Make sure you have examples in mind. Also tighten up your resume before you interview. A simple thing as spell check may save your candidacy.

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 1 dayinterviewed at Walgreens in October 2014.

    Interview

    The interview took place at a school career fair in the midwest. Several companies were present and all you had to do to qualify for an interview was to simply sign up for a time slot. I interviewed with one person, a pharmacy (district) supervisor. The interviewer followed a structured set of question and none of the questions was unexpected. These are the questions I remember: Tell me a little bit about yourself. Why Walgreens? (I had researched the company very well and was able to state how many stores Walgreens has and how it is redefining health care.) Tell me about a time when you improved a process. Tell me about a time when you engaged a team to complete a project. Tell me about a time when you made a difference in a patient's life. Tell me about a time when you faced conflict with a coworker and how you handled the situation. The interview was not hard but be ready to answer these questions on the spot with a specific example OR to create a scenario on the spot. I was told that everyone would hear *yay* or *nay* within a month or so. My experience was overall positive except for not hearing a final answer.

    I applied online. The process took 2+ monthsinterviewed at Walgreens (Fremont, CA) in October 2014.

    Interview

    A few weeks after filling out the application* on the Walgreen's Careers website, I received an email from the district supervisor for my area, We had several correspondences, and she was flexible enough to arrange for an interview time that fit my school schedule. During the interview, she was personable and friendly. She asked general questions about when I would be willing to work and about the pharmacy school I was attending. Also, she asked me a couple of questions about my resume, which I had handed to her at the start of my interview. Then, she consulted a paper and asked me a few formal interview questions. For example, "What is good customer service?" and "Tell me your strengths." After the interview, my interviewer also gave me tips about how to improve my interviewing skills and experience. *Of note, you need to complete the skills test at an actual Walgreen's store. Just walk in and look for the store manager. Tell him/her you are applying for a job at Walgreen's and need to take a skills test
