    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through other source. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Express Scripts (Albuquerque, NM) in April 2011.

    Interview

    Short and sweet. Online recruiters directly were most helpful. The third party recruiters appeared to be farmed out to another company and presented as directly representing Express Scripts. As taken per face value, the interview process was farmed and outsourced at the time. Now in real time all hiring is online, have resume ready to upload now as an addenda in HTML. Social media ( face book and others are preferred) sites are discouraged.

    Interview Questions

    • None, most questions were related to team building. Previous work experience at other job sites. Protect your identity by all reasonable means. Security questions abound.   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    Really no negotiation needed as salary was quite fixed

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at Express Scripts in October 2014.

    Interview

    There was one interview. All pre-interview communications are with a recruiter rather than someone in the department one interviews for. Post-interview communications are also with the same recruiter. Security is very rigid. Accessing the parking lot requires going through multiple gates. People must be buzzed into buildings and present ID. Barriers also prevent people from entering the actual work area.

    The interview consists mainly of behavioral questions but the interviewers try to be understanding and will gladly give applicants a moment to think before answering. They are also very helpful about answering questions and seem genuinely interested in their jobs.

    Interview Questions

    • How do you feel about not having any interaction with patients?   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    There is no negotiation process.

    Did a phone interview with Human Resources where their questions seemed to focus on how well I would do communicating over the phone since with Mail Order Pharmacy that is what you need to do.
