    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at CVS Health (Irvine, CA) in October 2016.

    Interview

    I wasn't prepared for any of the questions at this CVS. I was originally suppose to have an interview with the shift manager but I was thirty minutes too early and interviewed by another manager (who didn't even work at that particular location, he was helping out due to the holidays). I thought the questions were a bit hard. It was a learning experience but nonetheless the manager was nice. I called to follow up about the interview with the store manager but he rushed me off the phone which I thought was rude of him.

    Store Manager In Training Interview

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at CVS Health (Los Angeles, CA).

    Interview

    had a brief conversation with a recruiter on the phone for the 1st interview, literally 6 mins. that's how quick it was. he asked like maybe 4 questions and I couldn't believe that was it. I had to ask him questions for the next 10 mins just to get to 15 mins! and he did not make the position sound like it was worth it but the second interviewer was even worse. spent about an hour with a store manager and she had a packet of questions she was supposed to ask me but we never got through it. she asked me maybe 3 real questions, half heartedly, but stated how she was so bored with interview questions in general but she had to write something down bc she had to turn something in. we literally talked about her employees and how many people start this job and either end up quitting or get fired bc it's just not a fun job and you work so much. definitely didn't make me want the job but I just couldn't believe how unprofessional the entire thing was. I spent over an hour of my time to come out there, drove over 30 miles to the store she was at and she didn't even care to actually get to know me. I felt like we were gossiping over terrible employees she's worked with and how most don't last in that position bc they just can't handle it and only if you love to get sweaty dirty, hands on and work a bajillion hours and put up with crappy people will you like the job. seriously? such an non friendly HR filled hour of my life I won't get back. no surprise I got a rejection email considering she didn't even have anything to turn into her DM about me since she didn't even interview me. what the hell was the point in all that? not that CVS is my dream job but come on. I guess I shouldn't be surprised when you look at the state of the stores and their physical conditions and how ghetto the majority of them are.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at CVS Health (Santa Ana, CA) in July 2016.

    Interview

    Inteview was quick and to the point. Hired on the spot probably because they really needed people. Once hired, I felt like I was on my own. Hopped on the register and started right away after shadowing another cashier for 30 minutes. Everytime I had questions I had to call for help on the loudspeaker. Need better training. Left after a month.

    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at CVS Health (Los Angeles, CA) in February 2016.

    Interview

    Upon arrival I waited 45 min to be interviewed. (the place was extremely busy) I was prompted to take a pre-test ( that I had absolutely no clue about). I am a registered nursing major so I thought working at CVS would be great. I interviewed with the store manager who asked me about 3 questions. I didn't have my resume, which was a bummer and I didn't have complete availability which they needed. No call bk.

    Application

    I applied in-person. I interviewed at CVS Health (Los Angeles, CA) in January 2016.

    Interview

    It was very positive and laid back. Although I was contacted 3 months later for an interview, I went in and had a one on one with the manager. Very laid back and didn't feel scared. I felt really comfortable with the manager and we even talked about random things and laughed. Asked about my schedule and experience volunteering as this was my first job.
