    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.

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Walgreens (Newark, NJ) in May 2017.

    Interview

    Very Quick no one cares or asks about qualifications. They will apparently give this job to anyone. scary and sad. Makes me wonder who is filling prescriptions and if they really care about customers. not sure I would want to be part of that.

    Interview Questions

    • No one cares about your qualifications, experience, references, etc. They will hire anyone with a high school diploma. I see many are asking if you need to be certified. Not at all. Actually very sad and scary that they will allow anyone into this position.   Answer Question
