    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Walgreens (Nashville, TN) in July 2016.

    Interview

    I applied online. A month later I was asked to come in and take the skills test (a test that has much more applicable material on it than Kroger or Walmart tests do). After the skill test, the process moved quickly. Two days later I interviewed with the store manager and pharmacy manager. Both were very nice. They asked about my experience, my current job outside of the field, and a bit about me. They hired me at the interview. I took the drug test and signed for background check, and now a week later I am starting in the pharmacy.

    Certified Pharmacy Technician Interview

    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at Walgreens (Holden, MA) in April 2016.

    Interview

    The store manager called me the same day that I applied. I couldn't go in for an interview right away because I go to school, so that delayed the process a bit. When I went in for an interview, I was hired on the spot. We set up an interview and I had to call the day before to confirm that we would still be meeting. I came in a half hour early to complete the skills test. The manager was very friendly and seemed to be understanding and flexible about going to school part time when working there.

    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 days. I interviewed at Walgreens in November 2015.

    Interview

    I began by filling out the online application. At the end of the online application it states that you must go in to the store to fill out the rest of the application. I suggest going in to the store that you are hoping to get the job at, as that is what I did. When I went in the in store portion was pretty easy. It was questions about basic cashier math and general pharmacy knowledge. About two days after going in to finish the application I recieved a call from the store manager to come in for an interview. I went in and the interview was very short. He introduced me to a few of the mangers and asked me about four questions. Then he offered me the job on the spot contigent upon passing the required background and drug test. I went in the next day for the drug test and a day later he called back to say I got the job.

    The store manager said that since I was certified already I would start at a higher rate than someone who was not certified. He was very willing to work around my schedule for the national guard and told me that I could have all weekends off.

    Certified Pharmacy Technician Interview

    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 7 weeks. I interviewed at Walgreens (Kernersville, NC) in October 2015.

    Interview

    I applied online and received a call about 7 weeks after filling out an application. I was asked if I was still interested in the position, and of course I said yes. I came in for an interview two days after the phone call and was asked questions that were printed from a computer screen. The interview lasted about 30-45 minutes. The manager covered everything from the hours I'd be working, the pay I could expect, benefits, holiday pay, and how it is working in the pharmacy. You'll pretty much know if you've landed the position if they began discussing details of the job. After the interview I was called the following Wednesday with a job offer.
