    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Walgreens (Austin, TX) in January 2017.

    Interview

    I filled out application online then went to Walgreens to complete another online assessment and introduce myself to the store manager. About a week later I was called by pharmacy manager for interview. Interview was very structured and not very relaxed feeling. Work environment seemed very strict and pharmacy manager said he will need someone to work nights and weekends and explained that calling in is basically unacceptable unless it's an emergency. Said he would likely want me to work on the regular Walgreens floor first then bring me into pharmacy.

    Interview Questions

    • Why are you interested in pharmacy? What is it about working in a pharmacy that interests you, other than starting a new career for yourself? What are your strengths? What are your weaknesses? How would you handle the customers knowing that many will be not feeling well? Why should we hire you?   1 Answer

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Walgreens (Espanola, NM) in November 2016.

    Interview

    I went in and interviewed with pharmacy manager and another store manager. The interview was long and they had many questions. They gave me the usual rundown on pay, benefits, etc... I was a little nervous and they were nice enough. Pretty sure I bombed a couple questions but you have to go on. The interview was about 30 minutes. Still no call back, I'm sad noticing most people get hired on the spot.
