Sales Associate Interview

Sales Associate
Bellevue, WA

I applied online and the process took 2+ weeks - interviewed at Walgreens in June 2014.

Interview Details – Applied online. Received a phone call and scheduled an in person interview.
Didn't really get asked any questions about myself or my previous experience. The manager was nice, but didn't seem particularly organized. The store itself is also very small.

Sales Associate Interview

Sales Associate

I applied online and interviewed at Walgreens.

Interview Details – Everything was very quick, which surprised me, due to some of the reviews on here. I guess it depends on the location. The interview was very informal and seemed to be based on some predetermined questions. No pressure. If you're curious how to dress for an interview at a place like this, just be sure to be business casual to be safe. No need for overkill, but be clean and sharp.

Interview Question – How did you manage a miscommunication issue?   Answer Question

Brooklyn, NY

I applied in-person and the process took a day - interviewed at Walgreens in July 2013.

Interview Details – Very casual but I was being interviewed with another person in the room in competition for the same position and we both wound up getting the job. The interviewer was very friendly and welcoming but wound up being a non-supportive, unlikeable boss.

Interview Question – All were expected, nothing mind-bending.   Answer Question

Sales Associate Interview

Sales Associate
Bangor, ME

I applied online and the process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Walgreens in December 2013.

Interview Details – Simple interview. Before an interview with a manager I had to take a skill test that took me about 45 minutes to complete. Had me use the computer at the photo lab which was awkward because customers thought I was an associate. Maybe it was a test?

Interview Question – Situational questions. The most unexpected one had something to do with a situation in which someone asked you for help and you refused.   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – I didn't try to negotiate anything. They haven't really given me much information about the job yet, honestly.
