    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.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Walgreens (Gainesville, FL) in May 2017.

    Interview

    Two people interviewed me and took turns asking questions. There were about 8 scripted questions in total and afterward asked some general questions. It lasted about 30-40 minutes and both of the interviewers seemed decently laid back. The dress was casual so I only wore a button-down shirt and khakis. Overall a pretty relaxed interview.

    An onsite computer exam about behavior questions and some easy pharmacy questions. You can take it as many times as you want until you pass it.

    Interview

    I applied online and was called into a store where I met a manager who took me to a computer. This 'interview' consisted entirely of questions on a computer. Many were mathematically based. I was told the managers would be reviewing applications/questionnaires and would be called back if the process was to go forward.
