Application

I applied online. The process took 4 weeksinterviewed at Walgreens (Scottsdale, AZ) in April 2015.

Interview

Online application was followed by in store application which consisted of multiple choice questions about handling various situations you might encounter on the job and how you would handle them, also math aptitude questions about making change and recognizing validity of coupons. My online application didn't complete the first time, had to go back and redo. When I went to store to complete the application, the "system" was down that weekend. Went to another store another night and need a manager to access in store system - manager was gone for weekend and other employees weren't helpful. Went to another store that same evening and manager was there and helpful. Helps to be persistent.

    Submitted online application, they called a day later and said to come in the closest store to take the skills assessment.

    Application

    I applied online – interviewed at Walgreens.

    Interview

    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.

    I applied online. The process took 2 daysinterviewed at Walgreens (New York, NY) in June 2014.

    Interview

    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.

    Negotiation

    There was no negotiation phase, I basically just had to accept the pay.
