I interviewed at Pharmaca

Interview

Interviewed by someone on the executive team and others, and while most were nice, the exec was very rude, unprofessional and dismissive. Zero social skills. I've never had an interview like this, not sure why they brought me in to interview when it was clear they made up their mind prior to meeting me, not thinking I was qualified. Interviewer practically rolled her eyes like I was lying while I was speaking about my prior experience and challenged me in a way that made it seem like she thought I didn't do anything in my previous roles. Mind you, I have accomplished a lot at major companies, I am not early in my career. It was truly so weird. Company and execs are clearly behind the times, all seems very archaic, not progressive at all, and it's clear it would've been a nightmare of a company to work at, especially with the person I met with as one of their leaders. Also, the pay was low for a role that had an exhaustive list of required skills (ones that go beyond beyond the typical expectations for such a role).

painless and smooth. Friendly. Fun. It was nice to be able to speak with the manager about their expectations. However jobs duties were not clearly defined. The interview was not intimidating and the manager made me feel comfortable.

I applied online. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at Pharmaca (Boulder, CO) in Nov 2017

Interview

I called to express my interest in the open position I had applied for online. I talked to the pharmacy manager about the job and what they were looking for and when they needed someone. They needed someone immediately and I wasn’t able to start that soon so the position did not work out. The pharmacy manager was very nice and directed me to another opening at another location to apply for.

Interview Questions
  • Have you used EPS before? Their pharmacy software system.

I applied online. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at Pharmaca (San Francisco, CA) in May 2016

Interview

I applied online. The job posting suggested that I drop by the store, so I did. I chatted with the manager briefly. After I left the store I saw that I had an email requesting a phone interview. I did the phone interview 2 days later. I was called the next day to schedule an in person interview. I had that interview a few days later. Then I received an email requesting another phone interview with the VP of operations. That interview was about 30 minutes long. I got a call later that day with a job offer. The entire process took 13 days.

Interview Questions
  • Lots of questions about my experience and comfort level dealing with customers.

I applied online. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at Pharmaca (Boulder, CO) in Aug 2015

Interview

I applied for the position on the website. Within a week the hiring manager called me to set up a short phone interview. Phone interview was ~15 minutes and asked easy questions, like "What makes a good practitioner" and "Why are you interested in holistic health." From there, I was asked to an in-person interview at the store. This was also pretty quick (< 20 mins) and I was asked typical soft ball questions like "What are your biggest strengths and weaknesses." Within two days I got a phone call offering me the job.

Interview Questions
  • What makes a good holistic health practitioner? Why are you interested in holistic health? Why do you want to work for Pharmaca?

Application

I applied online. The process took 1 week. I interviewed at Pharmaca (San Francisco, CA)

Interview

I applied online through their website. I received a call from the store manager for an in person interview with the store manager and their lead practitioner. There are no set interview guidelines. Questions focus on service and how you balance task. They will ask some situation questions, though due to no set questions by the company every store manager might be different. Walking into the store there were carts with product laying about. Only two people were working so it seemed like they were stretched sort of thin. The second interview with the lead practitioner was more of a meet and greet. No questions about retail and just a quick overview of my resume and previous experience. They check to see your knowledge of natural health and wellness. A third interview with the district manager happens afterwards. This one feels more professional. A follow up call with an offer on a pay range and start date. Relatively easy interview so long as your resume did most of the talking upfront.

I applied online. The process took 2 months. I interviewed at Pharmaca (Portland, OR) in May 2014

Interview

Applied online. Dropped off resume in person. Tried to meet store manager. Month later I received a call to meet in person. A month later went by with no word so when I finally called they had picked someone else. The next day they called again to say they changed their mind and they finally selected me, it was very strange.
