The interview process did not take very long and pretty basic. They asked about my education and work experience. However, I did not get an offer because I am an international student

    Application

    I applied through other source. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at CVS Health (Bridgeport, CT) in October 2015.

    Interview

    I went to the Walgreens I had been assigned to by my school at the appointed time, and was interviewed by the pharmacy manager and the store manager inside the pharmacy. I was also
    introduced to the pharmacy staff that was on duty at that time. I was told what areas that I would
    be working in while I was there. Overall, I was made to feel comfortable and welcome by the pharmacy staff and store manager.

    Interview

    Overall the interview process was pretty bad. Once you apply online to the time you actually get an interview takes forever. There was a lot of waiting around and I felt like I had to keep on pushing for me to even get an interview.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at CVS Health (New York, NY) in February 2015.

    Interview

    Short. Very straightforward regarding expectations. straight to the point. Kind of knew from the middle of the interview that I wasnt getting the job. Wasnt too disappointed. I think before applying one should speak to friends on the atmosphere here. I interned at walgreens so I have not much to say.

    Interview Questions

    • Unexpectedly, there was nothing difficult at all with the questions I received (maybe they already planned to hire someone else by the time I interviewed).   Answer Question

    Interview

    The hiring process was extremely easy. I was hired the same day that I was interviewed. The interview was very laid back. I couldn't have asked for a better store to do my training in.

    Interview

    I applied online and was brought in for an "interview" about 2 or 3 weeks later. The "interview" was basically: 'when can you start, this is what you will be making, this is where you will do training and here is the form to go get your drug test'

    Later on, after taking my drug test and everything, they said there had been a change in management and that there was no longer a position for me. They did however give my information to another store to get me an interview.

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at CVS Health.

    Interview

    Our pharmacy school provided an interview day for students interested in an internship. All of the companies who attended were hiring for retail positions. Interviews were 30 minutes long. The usual questions asked involved work experience and previous retail knowledge. I had never worked in a pharmacy before, but I found the interview to go smoothly. I interviewed with a district manager and was asked about SPECIFIC things off of my CV. We were required to submit a resume or CV online when we registered for the interview. I was formerly a member of an athletic team. I was asked about my experience. I chose to describe how I learned how to manage time between academics and athletics. Other questions centered around my personal job history. I discussed how I had learned customer service from my first job in a fast food restaurant. Eventually, my interviewer began to ask what city I would like to work in. This topic led to the what the company expected of CVS interns. For those of you interested in appropriate attire, I would like to note that I did not wear a suit at my interview (I did not own one at the time). I wore a black pencil skirt that reached past my knees. I also wore panty hose with black leather flats (I did not wear heels since I am 6'0"). My top was a solid dark green satin work shirt. I had a small black cardigan on as well. In addition, I brought along copies of my CV for each potential employer (all of them appeared to appreciate this). During my interview, I was openly told to expect a job offer within a month and which store I would most likely be assigned to. CVS was the first of the company's to email out job offers to the students (I accepted the offer because they were the first to contact me). I interviewed in my second year of pharmacy school so that I could secure a job the summer before my third year. I believe I was offered $12/ hour. The hourly pay increases by $1 at the end of August for each year of school you complete. I am in my fourth and last year of school and my pay will increase to $15 at the end of this month (August).

    Interview Questions

    • No questions were difficult in my opinion. Most of the interview centered around my CV. The conversation eventually led to what was expected of an intern.   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    There is no negotiation for pay; however, students could request specific stores or locations. Some requests were accepted, but I also know of some students who were still placed at different stores than the ones requested. I did not request any specific location, but I work at one of the newest stores in the area. I am very happy with the location assigned to me.

    Interview

    I applied online then about a week later I received a call asking if I was interested in an interview. At the interview I was asked a few interview questions among more questions about myself. After the interview I got a tour of the store and I was introduced to the friendly staff. I was told a drug test and a background check would be required in which I got a call back on the background check a couple hours after the interview and was sent to a lab for the drug test. I had to do training courses and classes at another store for about a month before working at my home store. I initially applied for an overnight cashier position but the person who was hiring me suggested I work in the pharmacy because that's where they really needed help,
