    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter – interviewed at Walgreens.

    Interview Details

    Was contacted by a recruiter and was asked to apply online. I then proceeded to apply online and had a interview with two Walgreens employees. The questions were mostly situational and tell me about a time. I really enjoyed the two people who interviewed me. They made me feel very comfortable and I left the interview wanting to be apart of Walgreens.

    Application Details

    I applied online – interviewed at Walgreens.

    Interview Details

    Recruiter emailed Friday afternoon, indicating he had reviewed my resume and would like to call me on Monday or Tuesday to schedule interview time on Wed. in their regional district office. We connected on Monday via phone, recruiter described the job and asked about my experiences, and promised to get back to me by the end of the day or first thing the next morning. When I had not heard anything until early afternoon on Tue., I called and emailed, with no response. I called again at the end of the day and was able to reach the recruiter, who indicated they were not going to interview me onsite on Wednesday, despite their original email.

    Interview Details

    I applied online and got an email the next morning for a Saturday interview. The interviewer was friendly. He asked five questions, all "give me an example of a time..." The interview itself lasted about half an hour, and half of that was him explaining the benefits and showing me around the pharmacy.

    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
