Certified Pharmacy Technician Interview

Anonymous Employee in Joliet, IL

Positive Experience
Easy Interview

Application

I applied online. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at Walgreens (Joliet, IL) in August 2016.

Interview

The process was pretty quick. I filled out an application online and had to finish the remainder in the store. When I went in I brought my state certification and resume with me. You will have an advantage if you are already certified but no problem if you’re not. Store manager told me they weren’t hiring but when I gave him my PTCB certification he made room for me. He called me back 30 minutes later to schedule an interview. The interview was pretty quick. It was with the store and Pharmacy manager. They hired me on the spot. There is no wiggle room with starting pay as it is set on a scale.

    The entire process was very quick and easy. After filling out online application, I would go to speak to pharmacy manager in person. They always need people to help out at that particular location so she kept my paper resume and call me two weeks later to come in for interview.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Walgreens (Arlington, TX) in September 2014.

    Interview

    For Walgreens, you have to finish the application process in a store and if the manager is available they go ahead and talk to you then and there. Very casual, but you should be dressed appropriately and prepared. Mainly they just want to know your experience, what schedule you want/need, and if you're certified and registered.
