    Intern/Associate Pharmacist Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    No Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. I interviewed at CVS Health.

    Interview

    After filling out the online application, the online training/survey portion had to be completed. The interview was brief, which consisted of a few questions about myself and about five interview situational questions. It did not take long to here from the company once it was complete. However, the person that interviewed me was rude and looked distracted during the entire interview.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at CVS Health.

    Interview

    This was a conversation-based interview. This interview did not consist of scenarios (“tell me about a time when…”) like other companies’ interviews. It was very much straight-forward and very quick.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at CVS Health (Boston, MA).

    Interview

    Very easy - assistant manager asked a few basic questions in a one on one interview because the store manager was too busy. Just answer honestly as I don't think that they are that selective.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at CVS Health.

    Interview

    A Florida Recruiter emailed me at 5pm to choose a phone interview slot because they were interviewing the next day based off of "urgency needs". I confirmed my time with the Recruiter who proceeds to inform me that all the time slots are full but I will be considered for the next round. I spent all night preparing for the phone interview to hear that there are no more time slots? Very unorganized, dissappointing, and makes me feel like another number.

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at CVS Health.

    Interview

    It was a scenario type of interview so be prepared to answer those type of questions. There are a lot of scenario questions so be prepared to come up with past examples of your work history to be able to answer the questions.

    Interview Questions

    Negotiation

    Wasn't able to negotiate too much because they have a starting rate for that position.

    Senior Analyst - Specialty Strategy Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Chicago, IL
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at CVS Health (Chicago, IL) in March 2017.

    Interview

    Spoke with the recruiter who asked me the same exact questions I answered during the application process (e.g. additional skills, am I authorized to work in the US). After the conversation the recruiter said they would get back to me after he speaks with the hiring manager and that he typically meets with the team on Thursdays. The following Monday, I reached out to the recruiter to see if there was any update - no answer, straight to voicemail. I then receive an automated message later that day that they decided to go with another candidate. Normally it's fine to get those notices, but why would the recruiter tell me that they would reach out to me with an update as soon as possible, then an automated message. It would have been great to get an idea if it was pay or something else that could help me down the road - or let me know if there was some potential for other roles in the company. Poor recruiting job.
