Pharmacy Technician Interview

Anonymous Interview Candidate in Flourtown, PA
No Offer
Neutral Experience
Average Interview

Application

I applied through an employee referral. The process took a week. I interviewed at Walgreens (Flourtown, PA) in August 2016.

Interview

The whole process took about 20 minutes. The pharmacy manager brought me into the office and the assistant store manager sat through my interview. They asked me a few questions about myself to break the ice. He printed out set interview questions that they "are supposed to ask all the interviewees to be fair" and told me that I would be judged based on my answers.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Walgreens (Grand Rapids, MI) in August 2016.

    Interview

    It was difficult to understand as I believe the interviewers first language was not English and she did not appear interested in anything other than babbling about the store and asking meaningless questions.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at Walgreens in July 2016.

    Interview

    I did the 1st and 2nd assessments in one day on the Walgreen's website at home. I was called 5 days later to schedule an interview. My interview was 4 days after the call. I was very nervous, but the pharmacist interviewing me was very friendly. After the interview questions, I was given a paper with a paragraph on it and was told to retype the paragraph on the computer because typing accuracy is important. Afterward, I was told that he was interviewing others and if I didn't hear back from him within a week it means he has chosen someone else. 2 days after the interview, I received a call from pharmacist telling me I got the job!
