    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a staffing agency. I interviewed at Walgreens (Chicago, IL) in July 2017.

    Interview

    I had a phone, then FaceTime interview with a recruiting firm that worked closely with Walgreens on a regular basis. All went well, then I had a phone interview with the manager at Walgreens. It went okay, but I didn't feel super confident afterwards. After this, I never heard back from the recruiting firm or Walgreens.

    Finance Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Deerfield, IL
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. I interviewed at Walgreens (Deerfield, IL).

    Interview

    Had a last minute call from a recruiter for an on campus interview. I took it as I was able to fit it in my schedule. Intern was very straight forward. 30 minutes with two recent grads from my university. Got an email later that day saying I was selected for the second round (seemed a bit fast to me?). I scheduled that for their Deerfield headquarters a week later. That interview included an easy Microsoft Excel test, and then two thirty minute interviews. Again, nothing difficult. I left the interview feeling confident yet I never heard back from them and it has since been 6 months since my interview and I have accepted a position with a different firm. I emailed everyone thank you notes after the interview and further sent an email months later to follow up just because I was curious but was never responded to. To take the time to go interview with a company and never hear back is ridiculous. Not a business I would like to work for.

    Interview Questions

    • I dont even remember it was so long ago. Some behavioral, some case questions.   Answer Question

    Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Deerfield, IL
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Walgreens (Deerfield, IL) in May 2017.

    Interview

    Applied online in January. Phone interview with HR in February. Phone interview with hiring manager in March. Interview in person with 5 managers including hiring manager in April. Final interview with 2 senior directors in May. The interview process is very long and the HR is not prompt and most of the times unresponsive to the requested updates/follow up emails. HR has never kept me informed during the whole process, never met with promises on dates that he was supposed to contact me with updates, forgot to send the confirmation email containing instructions of the interview, date, time, interviewers names, etc. The worst HR I have experienced by far. If you have applied to a position in HQ, be advised that the process is VERY long and frustrating.

    It's been 2 months from the final interview and I have not received even an automated email on the outcome, after 5 months of interview process and hours of preparing for the interviews and interviewing. Disrespectful, unprofessional and rude.

    The interviews are based on your experience and behaviors.
