    Application Details

    I applied online – 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.

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 2 daysinterviewed at Walgreens in June 2014.

    Interview Details

    It was pretty informal, I was interviewed alone by the General Manager of the store and he went through a list of questions regarding times when I have shown work qualities, such as as tailoring my experience to a customer's specific needs, or going above and beyond the requirements of my job. We laughed about my experience and such, it was relatively relaxed in regards to other interview circumstances.

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed 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?

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

    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.
