Pharmacy Technician Interview

Anonymous Employee in Franklin, OH
Accepted Offer
Positive Experience
Easy Interview

Application

The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at Kroger (Franklin, OH).

Interview

Applied online on a weekday morning; recruiter called win 4 HOURS. After setting up interview 3 days out, the recruiter emailed an interview confirmation before ending our call, an Interview REMINDER the DAY BEFORE & by 6am the DAY OF, ALL reiterating what my responsibilities were (ie, Dress, identification, Early Arrival etc). While MANY might perceive this as heavy-handed, I experienced a sense of DESIRE to meet me, which boosted my confidence. The interview itself was within easy proximity to the Customer Service desk, and in the Employee Computer Trainjng Room. After critical questions were asked (see below), I was offered a job. Upon acceptance I was given directions to Background Check & Drug Testing facilities & the appropriate paperwork for each. It took approximately 10 days for the Hiring Manager to call me to set up my first Trainjng Day, but I'd gotten an email the DAY BEFORE, welcoming me to the Kroger Family and inviting me to even connect with other employees via their personal Employee Network. In addition, DESPITE not being hired to work in the STORE ITSELF (I'll be in the Pharmacy), Kroger indicated I'll be given BASIC TRAINING ALL EMPLOYEES HAVE, regarding OSHA, POS & other aspects of Kroger functioning AS A TEAM. I LOVE THIS, Kroger CLEARLY has no intention of isolating anyone.

    Interview

    Interview with pharmacist. The pharmacist asked if I had questions, but he hardly had any questions for me. In the end, he did most of the talking and I felt that I had no chance to represent my self as common interview questions were not asked.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at Kroger (Richmond Hill, GA) in December 2016.

    Interview

    I applied online and 2 days later I got a call from their recruiting division and set up a time for an interview. I received an email immediately after with the name of the interviewer and the address. On the day of, my interview was with the pharmacist and we went to the break room for the interview. People were walking in and out of the room awkwardly as we conducted the interview.

    The pharmacist was really nice but he did not have any information as to my resume or previous working experience so we really just talked about what my resume would have said. He also said that there were three more interviews he had to conduct before they made a final decision and he would give me a call back.

    The next day I got a call back from the HR department at the Kroger location and she offered me the position. Although I applied for full time, she said the position offered was part time for 7.25 an hour with about 12-28 hours. I declined the offer because the pay was way too low for someone with the amount of experience I had.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 6 days. I interviewed at Kroger (Columbia, SC) in November 2016.

    Interview

    Submit resume and application via website. Corporate calls and arranges time for interview and follows up with an email. You show up, no regard by interviewer as to the time they arranged so had to go back. They are part of the union. Then they offer $8 an hour, 3 to $4 less than industry standard an hour. No thank you.

    I applied online. The process took 2+ weeks. I interviewed at Kroger (Dickson, TN).

    Interview

    Only one question was asked. I was immediately hired. I was excited I got the job, but should've seen that this was a hint of how unprofessional the store was as a whole. Following the hiring process, I had to do a drug test and a background check. No skills were checked, No tests were administered, etc.
