I applied online. I interviewed at Walgreens.

    Easy Interview

    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

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. I interviewed at Walgreens.

    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. After that, the pharmacy manager will give you an interview asking some basic behaviors questions and give you a prescription to see if you can read the hand writing on it.

    It was a good experience. Asked me a couple of questions about my past experience. They didn't give me that condescending attitude. Staff are polite, patient and very helpful. Overall it looks like a really great place to work.

    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
