    Application Details

    I applied in-person. The process took 2 weeks - interviewed at CVS Health in September 2014.

    Interview Details

    Called the pharmacy after over a month of not hearing anything from applying online (not sure if they have open applications online even when they aren't hiring) and asked to speak to the pharmacist concerning open positions for pharmacy techs. He said they were hiring soon and asked my name to find my application. I was scheduled a few days later for an interview with both of the pharmacists, one at a time. They were both extremely friendly and relaxed and helped me open up and be myself. They both only asked me about my past experiences (I have none in a pharmacy but some in retail) and my future plans. 8 days later I received an email from CVS with a job offer for part time, slightly above the minimum pay.

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 2+ months - interviewed at CVS Health in July 2014.

    Interview Details

    Taking almost a month to respond to my application, I was asked to interview with the first pharmacist. The interview went very well, I and the pharmacist were pleased with the initial interaction and I was asked to return in ten days for the second pharmacist's interview. Again, the interview went well, similar routine interview questions were asked, and I left satisfied with my responses. Two weeks passed, and I finally called the pharmacy to inquire about the status of my possible employment. I was asked to return in four days, to the pharmacy, for another (final) interview with the third pharmacist. After waiting almost an hour, I was told to return the next day, at the same time, for the interview. It also went well, and I was satisfied with the answers and my performance. Two weeks from this interview, I received an offer letter for "full time employment" at "$9 an hour". My manager/Pharmacist to be notified me in a short text stating, "hey, you're hired, check your email". I thought this was the greatest response ever, especially from a future boss, and I was excited to receive the letter.

    Senior Manager, Account Services Interview

    Application Details

    I applied through an employee referral - interviewed at CVS Health in July 2014.

    Interview Details

    I applied online and was contacted 1-2 weeks later by HR for a phone screen. It was identified during the initial call that I was overqualified and far out of the pay range for this role. HR spoke with the Hiring Manager and requested I come in for face to face interview anyways...promising to set me up for interviews with other departments that might be a good match at a more senior level. Went in for in-person interview the following week. Everyone was so nice - great culture...lots of excitement about the company. However, everyone I met was screening me for the original position I had applied for. There were no additional interviews for other roles as discussed. After following up with HR and the Hiring Manager a week later, I finally received a call back from HR saying "no surprise" you aren't the right fit for this role and I couldn't match you with anything else. Very disappointing at the lack of effort after I wasted an entire day interviewing.
