Cashier/Clerk Interview (Neutral Experience)
I applied in-person and interviewed at CVS Caremark.
Interview Details I filled out an application at the local CVS where I live and didn't hear from that store. However after a few weeks, I got a telephone call from a manager from another store and he told me he saw my application and was interested in interviewing me for the Cashier/Clerk position. The interview took 20 minutes and the usual questions were asked: Why should I hire you? Why do you want to work for CVS? Tell me about your previous jobs and what you liked and disliked about them?
Interview Question – If you saw someone stealing, how would you handle that situation. Answer Question

IT Analyst Interview (Positive Experience; Easy Interview)
I applied through a recruiter and the process took 2 weeks - interviewed at CVS Caremark.
Interview Details Interview process was smooth and very simple. It was one phone interview that lasted around 45 minutes. I was asked some precise questions on my background and previous positions. At that point I felt confident on my abilities to perform the job at hand once I was told about my position and responsibilities. I waited 2 weeks from that date and expected to have either another interview or face to face but instead I got a call saying Iwas hired.
Interview Question – I dont think there was anything difficult about the interview as it really was cut and dry Answer Question
Beauty Consultant Interview (Positive Experience; Average Interview)
I applied online and the process took 1 week - interviewed at CVS Caremark in April 2014.
Interview Details The process was pretty fast, did a phone interview two days after i submitted my applications and all the questions were totally normal. was scheduled for a one on one interview with the two days later; long story short she knew absolutely nothing about the skin care industry and i kept blowing her mind and she even asked for some pointers for herself. but by the end of the interview she knew the possibility of me accepting their offer will be slim to non when she told me the details of the hours ill be working.
Reason for Declining – The job was suppose to be part time but the hours were not stable ,you go in when traffic in store is at its Peak and those hours are not even guaranteed. you just wont know how many hours you're making in a week. they dangle the commission and product discount but in this economy lipstick and eyeshadow wont pay the bills if you dont know what youll be making the following week of work
Pharmary Technician Interview (Negative Experience; Easy Interview)
I applied through an employee referral and the process took 2+ weeks - interviewed at CVS Caremark in May 2012.
Interview Details Interview was 15 minutes, a lot of it was guided by the resume top to bottom. The standard 'what are your best qualites, what are your worst'. Why did you choose CVS over x x or x pharmacy"
Interview Question – Why did you choose CVS over others View Answer
Negotiation Details – I was told 9$ was the max. I wanted 15$. Training paid the same pittance. The registration courses and fees equate to about 7 thousand to work a 9$ an hour job. Dress code is about 200$ an outfit minus cost of dress shoes. Its a 9/hr job but expectations are so high and corporate doesn't realize you can just cut and go... which ends up happening and your pharmacist wont reference you or write letters because you couldnt take the abuse. Saw 2 other techs cry on their first week.
