Photo Specialist Interview

Anonymous Employee in Saint Joseph, MO

Positive Experience
Average Interview

Application

I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Walgreens (Saint Joseph, MO) in September 2011.

Interview

I was asked the normal questions as well as how have you helped someone that may not have been able to help themselves and about my communication and technology skills. But the Manager that did my interview was very nice and was surprised at some of my answers considering how young I was with the experience I had had.

    Average Interview

    Application

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

    Interview

    Applied online. Afterwards, you must go to a store to complete a basic skills assessment that consisted of the least agree/most agree questions and basic consumer math. Afterwards you must wait for a call back in most cases. This is followed by a face to face interview with a hiring manager. Examples of questions are, "When was a time that you had to help someone with disabilities?" or " Think of a time you had to handle a difficult customer service situation. How did you resolve it?" If you meet their approval you are sent for a drug screening. Job offer is dependent on a negative result.

    Interview Questions

    • Explain a difficult situation where you had a conflict with management personnel at a previous employer. How did you resolve it?   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    There was no negotiation. The offer was as is. Flat non-negotiable pay by hour.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Walgreens in July 2014.

    Interview

    It takes about 3 weeks to get into the Walgreen's company on the store level, even when the store manager has said that the specific store is desperately in need of a few new people right away. The online application is very long but it can be completed in your home or at the store. However, you have to go into the store to complete more online testing and then finally you can meet with the manager for a moment to schedule an interview and get the questions that you have answered.

    Interview Questions

    • Will you accept a lower position to start with minimum pay and work your way up in the company over time?   1 Answer

    Negotiation

    I was able to negotiate hours and shifts to work. I was able to negotiate advancement in the company but what I did not have worked out because the assistant manager I was negotiating with did not first check if it was available to me for certain and it turned out that out was not available. Always ask to have the top manager finalize your offer and acceptance.
