    Application Details

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2 months - interviewed at Duane Reade in July 2014.

    Interview Details

    Went in to the store and asked to speak to the manager. I was seated and waited about a half an hour. Was greeted by the manager, lead down a flight of stairs and into a room where meetings are usually held. Asked to show identification and asked simple questions. Very friendly but the manager seemed to be in a rush.
