    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Walgreens (Brooklyn, NY) in October 2016.

    Interview

    I applied online and within a few days received an email asking me to do an online interview. I did that on a Thursday and on Monday they called me asking me to do an interview at one of the stores. It wasn't the store I was going to work at, it was just a location for the in-person interview. I hadn't heard anything back for a week and I thought they weren't going to hire me, but then I got a call from the person who had initially watched my interview video who seemed to really really like me and she asked me how the interview went. I told her it went well but I hadn't heard anything back. She said she would reach out to them and get some feedback and then she'd call back.

    A few days later I got a call from another walgreens person offering the job. She told me they would start me off at $12.50 an hour, and that it was a full-time position. She also gave me the address of the store I would work at. She said they would overnight me the employment offer that I had to sign and return. I got the package the next day and had to do a drug test within 48 hours of receiving the package. I went to one of the locations listed online for the drug testing company and did it that same day.

    I start next week and haven't heard anything back from them at all regarding the drug test or confirming they received the signed paperwork. I'm assuming that means everything is good to go.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 5 days. I interviewed at Walgreens (Birmingham, AL).

    Interview

    I went in, the manager asked me if I could pass a drug test, made a smart comment about where I was from and how it would be a miracle if I could pass one, asked if I was okay with the pay, took a skills test, and made me sign some papers. I would hardly call it an interview, it was more of a "I need to see you in person to offer you this job with no pre-qualifications" thing. Waste of my time and waste of 3 months of my life.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Walgreens (Saint Cloud, MN).

    Interview

    While the interview itself was well constructed, it took me a long time to set one up with the store. I was interviewed by the store manager and an assistant store manager. They were both very nice and very professional. They answered all of my questions and provided me with all the information I needed while considering whether or not the position would work for me.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Walgreens.

    Interview

    The process was not long for me at all. They asked me a few what-if scenarios and open ended questions that were designed to figure out how well you work in groups, past accomplishments, how you problem solve on the spot, etc. I recieved an offer on the spot but I did have to have a background check and because the store is a pharmacy as well I had to do a drug test within three days of the interview. They select the location but they also pay for it.
