I applied online and the process took 4+ weeks - interviewed at Walgreens in January 2014.

Interview Details I took a computerized skills and personality test, then interviewed with the store manager, who had a list of five standard questions. He asked me each of these questions, then rated my answers from 1-5. The whole process took about 90 minutes. I received an offer that day, then had to find a clinic to go for a pre-employment drug test.

Project Manager Interview

Project Manager

I applied through a staffing agency and the process took 2 days - interviewed at Walgreens.

Interview Details Depending on the division and department, there will be one key interviewer. Best to go through a recruiting company to get in on a contract to hire. Not much chance for a direct hire unless you know someone who recommends you.

I applied online and the process took 5 days - interviewed at Walgreens.

Interview Details Put in an application and go to the store for an interview. It is a very simple interview and process.

Interview Question – None. It's retail, not engineering.   Answer Question

Assistant Manager (MGT) Interview

Assistant Manager (MGT)
Atlanta, GA (US)

I applied online and the process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Walgreens in July 2011.

Interview Details Applied online, took a 2hr assessment consisting of math and reading questions. Got a call the next day to schedule an in-person interview with the DM. The interview process was easy, I scored one of the highest on their assessment and their admin called me the very next day to schedule a interview with their DM. Went in for an in-person interview and the DM was late 30 min, she was very unprofessional constantly checking her phone. There was only 10 behavioral/situational questions. Which I felt I did well, but I got a template email the next day saying I didn't get the offer. The template email didn't even have the DM's name on it. I certainly appreciate the timely response. What you put in is often what you get and it is their loss as they did not select the most qualified candidate perhaps afraid that he was over-qualified and may move on shortly. I don't think anyone would have sat through a 2hr assessment and driven another 3hr to the interview if they weren't genuinely interested in the position.

Interview Question – There was only 10 behavioral/situational questions.   Answer Question
