    Finance Interview

    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.

    Manager Interview

    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.

    Merchandise Planner Interview

    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

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

    Interview

    First phone interview with HR = Horrible.
    The HR recruiter cut me off while I answered her questions.
    The series of questions were duplicative - just felt like she didn't listen to my answers or read questions. It was as if she was too focused on writing every word I said, rather than having a conversation with me about the role and my experience. She kept asking me my past salary for every job listed on my resume, she needed exact numbers.
    I learned nothing about the role, apart from what was in the job description, I got nothing on the culture of the company, team, people- as she stated " that is too hard to answer"

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through other source. I interviewed at Walgreens (Deerfield, IL).

    Interview

    I worked for them since high school so I never did a formal interview at the retail level. If you apply for a corporate job, I did many and what they are lacking is the letter or a phone call to tell you if you that they decided to go with another candidate. The least they could do is that. Never got any type of letter therefore I assumed the answer was no. It would be nice to be treated as a human and not just another person that works there.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took a week. I interviewed at Walgreens (Deerfield, IL) in August 2016.

    Interview

    Firstly, the title says they need ETL Developer and JD shows Test description roles.
    Not a single question came from Testing stand point.
    All the questions were more like Modeling, DBA type questions.
    Every question they ask was indirect.
    It looks like as if they want candidates smarter then them.
