    Sales Associate/Cashier Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Application Details

    I applied in-person – interviewed at Walgreens.

    Interview Details

    They had a 'hiring' sign on the door of their location. I asked an employee about it and they motioned me to a computer in the beauty department. I finished an application and assessment right there on the spot. About a week later I got a call for an interview. I came in that week and met with two of the assistant managers. One of them asked me questions while the other just kind of watched me for responses. That same day she gave me instructions and the location for my drug test. I'd say a week later I started my employment there.

    Interview Questions
    • They asked me standard retail questions like, "tell me about yourself", "are you in school", "what is your availability", "what is your work experience" etc.   Answer Question

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in York, PA (US)
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 2 daysinterviewed at Walgreens in February 2015.

    Interview Details

    I applied online through their website. I was then called that same week, and asked to come in and take a skills assessment test. After the test, you will be asked if you would mind being interviewed right then. The questions are read directly from a script (there are 5-6 questions.)

    Interview Questions
    • Give an example of a communication barrier that you had to overcome. Give an example of teamwork that you took part of. Give an example of a time a customer was displeased, and how you took care of it.

      The questions follow that vein. They also ask to elaborate (what was your part, what did you do, how do you feel your action affected the overall outcome, and so on.)

    Interview Details

    Hiring process-drug test and background check. Interview-office, one person, regional manager. Haven't started my first day. Am I at thirty words yet? No I'm not. Let's see-you are competing against Walgreens shift leads as outsider. So know your stuff!! Use only retail references.

    Interview Questions
    • No dumb questions like strengths and weaknesses. Straight up grill. All the questions were situation, action, result.
      1. Tell me about a time were you had a difficult conversation with someone (performance critique is the best example) 2. Tell me about a time where you had a tight deadline and multiple things to do 3. Tell me about a time where you had a short deadline (one day, as opposed to question two which could stretch out) 4. Something about reviewing profit earned and using that knowledge to branch out into new areas (tanked that question obviously) 5. Tell me about a time where you had coach someone repeatedly 6. Tell me about a time where you critiqued someone's bad performance or teamwork. 7. Tell me about a time where you had to encourage someone. 8. Tell me about a time where you had to implement a plan in which even you did not agree with. That's all I remember.

    Pharmacy Technician Interview

    Application Details

    I applied through other source. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Walgreens.

    Interview Details

    Applied online, went in the next day to takes the skills assessment. The tests needed to be taken were pretty extensive, not hard but just required som time. I called them about 3 days later asking about my application and didn't stop calling until I got the attention I wanted lol. So about a week later I get a call asking to come in for an interview the next day. Interview was extremely easy. The manager asked me a bunch of questions a lot about myself and less about my work experience. He was really laid back and relaxed. During my time that I was waiting to hear the answer a few people from the pharmacy walked in and out of the room I was in and everyone was extremely nice and friendly. Even the people outside of the pharmacy were really helpful. So the manager came back in after 10 minutes told me I'm hired and my pay is 10.25$ and hour. I was pretty content with that as I was doing it more for the experience and being able to put it on my resume. So about 2 weeks later after background check and drug testing cleared I am starting tomorrow. I'm extremely nervous but everyone there is so friendly I think I should be ok!

    Interview Questions
    • I came prepared so nothing was difficult/unexpected. Read as many of these reviews on glass door as possible. I read all the questions that all other reviewers supplied and tried to answer them myself. I felt really prepared going in and out of the interview.   Answer Question
    Negotiation Details
    Manager said how does 10.25$ sound? I said great! Lol like I said I did it for the experience
