    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Walgreens (Southborough, MA) in November 2018.

    Interview

    The entire process took about 3 weeks. Initial screening was done through the online assessment consisting of psychometric evaluation, math and prescription inputs. Once I cleared this round, I got a call for 1:1 interview on site. The interview was not an easy one. The interviewer had specific questions as it was a position in the specialty pharmacy. It lasted for 30 minutes. Got an offer after a week. They have good benefits and working hours.

    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.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 days. I interviewed at Walgreens (Orlando, FL) in April 2015.

    Interview

    They were mainly concerned with customer service experience. That is key to this job and you need to have endless patience for the endless patients and their rudeness. They also want to assess your basic math abilities to tell if you can run a cash register efficiently or not.

    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.
