Workforce Analyst Interview (Positive Experience; Easy Interview)
I applied online - interviewed at Walgreens in May 2012.
Interview Details The interview was a panel interview. It was fairly easy with your typical variety of behavioral questions and questions about your knowledge of the position. Overall, it was a good experience.
Interview Question – Tell me about a time leadership was not available and you had to make an executive decision. How did you handle it? What was the outcome? Answer Question
Negotiation Details – I was already a Walgreens employee so, there was not much to negotiate. Coming from another company things could be different though.
Assistant Manager (MGT) Interview (Negative Experience; Easy Interview)
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
Coordinator Interview (Positive Experience; Average Interview)
I applied online - interviewed at Walgreens in June 2014.
Interview Details The first interview is over the phone with a recruiter. Here they ask you questions about you and your resume. They also ask you one or two behavioral questions. If you qualify for their position they will send you to the next round of interviews. Here you will meet with a higher up employee that will ask you several behavioral questions and will open the floor for you to ask questions as well. This interview is in person.
Interview Question – The questions are your basic behavioral questions.. You can google questions like that online. There was nothing really out of the ordinary or unexpected. They really want you to answer using your personal examples and skills/traits that you possess and implemented to complete a task. Answer Question
Assistant Manager (MGT) Interview (Positive Experience; Average Interview)
I applied online and the process took 2+ weeks - interviewed at Walgreens.
Interview Details The process has probably changed by now, since the MGT position was eliminated, but I received a call from the district manager, and had two interviews with different store managers before my final interview with the district manager.
Interview Question – There were no unusually hard or unexpected questions. Answer Question
Customer Service Associate Interview (Positive Experience; Easy Interview)
I applied online and the process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Walgreens in August 2013.
Interview Details Very nerve racking at first, since it was my first interview. HOwever, everybody I met and talked to was extremely nice and proactive. Interview was great but I was extremely shaky.
Interview Question – What has Walgreens taught you? Answer Question
Sales Associate Interview (Negative Experience; Average Interview)
I applied in-person and the process took 1 week - interviewed at Walgreens.
Interview Details Applied in store. Did an online assessment that consisted of multiple choice answers that test your ability to read coupons correctly and make change. Pretty basic. Still waiting for them to review the application.
Walgreens Cashier Interview (Positive Experience; Easy Interview)
I applied online and the process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Walgreens.
Interview Details I had to fill out an online application and then go to a store and complete a skills assessment. Within a week I was called in for an interview. The interview was fairly easy. The manager asked a lot of behavioral questions and asked if I would be able to work nights and weekends. The work is easy, so they were basically just looking for someone reliable. After the interview, about a week later, I got a call from the manager asking if I was still interested in the position and he wanted to know when I could start. Then I had to take a drug test, so I could officially start.
Interview Question – Do you have any sales experience? Answer Question
Negotiation Details – There wasn't much negotiation. Pay was a little bit over minimum wage.
Beauty Advisor Interview (Positive Experience; Average Interview)
I applied online and the process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Walgreens in May 2010.
Interview Details Was called in for an interview, general interview questions regarding previous experience and why you would be a good fit for the position. Came back in about a week later for orientation. Spent about three days doing training modules on the computer.
Interview Question – What would you do in the case of an unruly customer who yelled and threatened? View Answer
Negotiation Details – At the time minimum wage was 7.25/hr and was the only option for pay.
Nurse Practitioner Interview (Neutral Experience)
Interviewed at Walgreens
Interview Details The interviewer wanted to interview at Panera Bread during Lunchtime. While interviewing, he was reading written questions and then looking around the dining room, ignoring me, slow to respond to questions. This is a horrible company to work for. I have a professional degree and was treated like someone at a fast food service restaurant. They talk about caring and wellness but do nothing to assist the professionals in their takecare health/walgreens clinic in processing patients. If you try to transfer, it can be up to a year before that goes thru and only if you stay on top of it. Managers could care less about individuals. Managers lie, fabricate the truth to avoid responsibility.
Negotiation Details – m
Pharmacist Interview (Positive Experience)
I applied through a recruiter - interviewed at Walgreens in January 2010.
Interview Details should wear clothes as you go to work:casual shirt,tennis shoes, long pants. and smile all the times. get acquataince with PDM. Give a happy comment to PDM such as :you have a beautiful smile. or "you are right",node your head in any good question that you agree with that PDM( pharmacist district manager). talk like you know the system which the company runs. like Rire Aid has PDX system, but I know now they change ,not any more. This is easiest system,very simple compare of CVS system is very stupid,that a long time to finish one RX.
