Interviewed at Walgreens
Interview Details – First interview as a pharmacy technician was conducted by the store manager, asking the usual questions. Once I became an intern and applied for the education assistance scholarships the questions became more situational. Again, similar situation questions when I was hired to be a pharmacist. At that time, having worked for the company for so long, my interview was really short. Got an email a week later saying that I got the job.

I was offered the position at the end of our 2nd phone call.
