    Customer Service Associate Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Pascagoula, MS
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Walgreens (Pascagoula, MS) in February 2018.

    Interview

    This is probably the strangest interview I ever had. The interview lasted about 30 minutes and I immediately felt like I was on trial about the degree that I got. Over the course of the interview I got asked around 20 questions or so. I felt kinda like she didn't know what she was doing. She explained that they had a new hiring system and that I would receive additional emails telling me when my interview was when we spoke on the phone before my first interview. She said she would let me know if I got the job the same day I interviewed. Instead she called about an hour later and told me I needed to resubmit my application, so I did. The following Monday I received an email at 5 pm telling me that I had an interview scheduled for 4 pm, so by the time I got the email I was a hour late and also I was interviewing for another job. Before receiving that email I never received a phone call from her to schedule my second interview. I also wondered what she could possibly ask me after the first interview since she had asked me pretty much everything.
