    Interview

    First interview as a pharmacy technician was conducted by the store manager, asking the usual questions. Once I became an intern and applied for the education assistance scholarships the questions became more situational. Again, similar situation questions when I was hired to be a pharmacist. At that time, having worked for the company for so long, my interview was really short. Got an email a week later saying that I got the job.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Walgreens in February 2013.

    Interview

    I had two phone interviews with a pharmacy manager. I believe she was reporting to a DM after the first interview to discuss the possibility of a second interview. The first phone interview was a description of the position questions about what I was looking for and a review of my resume. The second phone call consisted of the STAR interview questions. I was offered the position at the end of our 2nd phone call.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Walgreens (Gwinnett Mall Corners Post Office, GA) in August 2012.

    Interview

    First a company standardized employment form and an e-paper Psyche evaluation over the internet.
     After an e-mail notification a follow up one-on-one interview with an area supervisor pharmacist was scheduled.
    The Interview was rather informal inside a pharmacy located in a medical center. The interviewer was relaxed and kind. I presented another copy of my resume 20 minutes before the interview for his convenience. The interview went overtime and felt very good. I can't emphasize the importance of mentioning a common acquaintance. Knowing someone helps.

    During clinical rotations I had the opportunity to meet with one of the district managers of Walgreens. He asked me for an interview that following week.

Pharmacy based questions included work flow based questions. "other" questions included one about what I would bring to a deserted island. Finally, the interviewer concluded by asking me why I wanted to work for the company and where I saw myself in a few years
