Certified Pharmacy Technician Interview

Anonymous Employee in Austin, TX
Accepted Offer
Neutral Experience
Easy Interview

Application

I applied online. I interviewed at Walgreens (Austin, TX) in March 2015.

Interview

My interview process was quite unusual. I had not heard back from the location for about a week after I finished the application. So I decided to stop by and just check in on my way home for campus (i was wearing just jeans and a T-shirt). When I walked in and spoke to the asst. manager, she brought me to the store manager and he interviewed me right then and there.

    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Walgreens (Herriman, UT) in July 2017.

    Interview

    The hiring manager went into a long rant about the poor performance of current employees and that he was bringing me on to try and correct the situation. He then spent a great deal of time discussing my rate of pay being contingent on my performance and meeting his expectations. If I failed to meet them, he said he would go through this whole process again and hire someone else. It made me feel very insecure in my job.
