    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at Walgreens (Kennewick, WA) in April 2015.

    Interview

    I Applied online, and was interviewed a few days later. I applied online to Walgreens, because I had heard their company rights policies towards their employees was positive. I was however, sorely mistaken. I was then offered the job a few days after my worst interview ever, and I happily declined. The manager would not stop pestering me and calling my phone, and he was incredibly disrespectful in my interview. Hands down, I was told walgreens was an open place to work, and I was treated like scum.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed 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.
