    Application

    I applied online. The process took 5 days. I interviewed at Walgreens (Seattle, WA) in July 2015.

    Interview

    Started with a math/reading comprehension test that lasted about 20 minutes. Then a short interview with basic questions, and some redundancies (two about conflict resolution). This was actually my first ever job interview but I found that the manager was kind and made it much less stressful.

    I also appreciated how quick the process was. I applied online on Sunday and was called for an interview the next day. The interview was on Wednesday and I was hired on Friday.

    Interview

    Very easy and straightforward. The questions were mainly common sense and were about decision-making in certain situations. It only took around 30 minutes to complete. The manager was very friendly and easy to talk to and not overpowering or intimidating at all.

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Walgreens.

    Interview

    Half of the application is online, once you're done with that portion you have to show up in store for the other half. So there really isn't an appointment. You just come tell the manager you have applied online and are there to do the other portion. I don't know about other Walgreens but I was basically interviewed on the spot. I also got the job on the spot too.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at Walgreens (Phoenix, AZ) in April 2012.

    Interview

    I applied online (without thinking) as a Beauty Advisor in 2012. I got a call in a few days for a personality test that had to be taken in any Walgreens store. It was mostly easy questions on how you deal with other people and how hard you work. I think the next day I was invited for a real interview and the manager was super nice and the interview was very short. I was asked why I wanted to work there but mostly it was very impersonal questions read from a list like "how do you deal with difficult people?" etc. I think there were only about 6 questions. I was called back for the job a few days later and had to take a drug test. Overall it was a very easy process and I was hired quickly. My only advice is to dress nicely, be friendly, and be eager to work there. My other piece of advice is don't plan on working at Walgreens forever unless you want to go into pharmacy because it's an awful job for so little pay, even after I worked nearly every department in the store.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Walgreens in June 2015.

    Interview

    Applied online late at night and the next day, about 10 hours later, I got called by the assistant manager to come in for an interview as soon as I could. I arrived at the store about a half an hour later and the assistant manager walked me to the back and had me take the skills assessment and then said he wanted to interview me right afterwards. Both my assessments came back "very high" so he started the interview process. Afterwards, he said I did an amazing job and that he wanted to offer me the job. The pay is minimum wage starting out but as a beauty advisor you can make money off of certain products you sell. I accepted the offer and he then walked me around the store and introduced me to the store manager and other various people. I signed the papers and was sent to take a drug test and I start in approximately one week.
