Certified Pharmacy Technician Interview

Anonymous Employee in Philadelphia, PA
Accepted Offer
Positive Experience
Easy Interview

Application

I applied online. I interviewed at Walgreens (Philadelphia, PA).

Interview

Put in an application on a Monday. Got called back for an interview on Wednesday morning. We scheduled the interview for the following Monday. I interviewed with 2 pharmacy managers because my Walgreens is a specialty pharmacy. It is a pharmacy only store. Interview was quick and not too bad. I do get a little nervous when it comes to interviews for jobs that I want. Do prepare for the interview as much as you can and you'll be fine. You'll be asked at least 2-3 scenario questions and your availability. I got an offer a week later, got the offer letter 1 day and a half after. I did negotiate my pay because since I am leaving my full time job for Walgreens, the pay needed to be more than what I am making at my regular job. Don't feel nervous about negotiating your pay because if I hadn't, I don't believe I would have accepted the offer.

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Walgreens (Memphis, TN) in August 2020.

    Interview

    An hour before the interview they emailed me information confirming the time, place,position, and who I will interview with. I went in and asked an employee who my interviewer was but they had no clue. They still guided me to where I had to go. I waited in the breakroom until she came (she was not the person I expected). She interviewed me in the training room. First she asked about me and proceeded with the interview.

    Certified Pharmacy Technician Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Gulfport, MS

    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Walgreens (Gulfport, MS) in April 2019.

    Interview

    Applied online and was called in for an interview within 3 days. When I went in for the interview, it was the first time the store manager and the pharmacist both did a joint interview instead of two separate ones. They asked me about myself, and then beyond that it was mostly situational questions; there was nothing about what you plan to do in the future, how long you'd want to stay with the company, or anything personal beyond the introduction. I felt they were looking more for a drone worker than a teammate. After the interview they said I'd have an answer by the next Monday, but that day came and went so I called them at the end of the week and they promised NEXT Monday, and didn't sound too pleased to hear from me. Next Monday came and went and still nothing. I had my answer by the end of the third week after the interview.

    Despite having a bachelor's degree and already having my CPhT and state license without their company having to sponsor it, I did not receive a job offer. My cousin, who is EMT certified, has stated she'd tried getting a job at Walgreen's as well and they didn't offer her one for even a customer service associate, so I'm unsure as to what qualifications they were looking for.

    The the the things you do not have to be a good idea for the future and the fact that you can get it from your house is important for the people who are in the middle of the day before yesterday or at the end of the day and we are going to have to go through this process for anything
