Service Clerk Interview

Application Details

I interviewed online - interviewed at Walgreens.

Interview Details

Two interviews are conducted. You apply and then wait for a call from the store.The first interview is getting to know you and many questions are asked. Hiring and interview process is pretty good and the process went pretty smoothly. It is a good idea to talk about any research you did and maybe follow up with a thank you note. Also smiling and being positive. And be ready to answer their questions and have good questions to ask. That's what helped me out.

    Application Details

    I interviewed online. The process took 1 week - interviewed at Walgreens in November 2011.

    Interview Details

    Online application, then in-house application with customer service questions, money handling questions. If pass those, then in person interview, if job offer then based on drug test passing.

    Interview Questions
    Negotiation Details
    No negotiating, set hourly rate, take it or leave it. I interviewed just before Thanksgiving, they forgot to mention two weeks before Christmas they stay open until midnight, normally close at 10pm. I might not have accepted if I'd known that, doesn't sound like a problem but holiday sales stressful and may stay until 1am cleaning up, then return sometimes at 10 am to work day shift.

    Application Details

    I interviewed through an employee referral. The process took 4 days - interviewed at Walgreens in March 2010.

    Interview Details

    You will get a call for a interview. (After finishing the 2nd part of the online test in store). On the interview you will meet with the store manager or assistant store manager. They would ask you the basics regarding your experience, why you want to work with us, your duties and if you feel you can handle them. It's important to be yourself and be outgoing. They would then give you a call back and send you for drug test which basically means you got the job if negative of course.

    Negotiation Details
    If you really want to negotiate pay you can do so if you have experience to back it up but if you really want the job I wouldn't advise it as you can be turn down. Once in the company and offered another position role like photo you can negotiate pay with your store manager and I would advise to do so. Starting pay as a service clerk (Customer service rep now is $8.50, Photo $9.00- $10.00 .25 additional each year more) Head photo up to $11.50: Same for cosmetics. (Started in Bronx NY, Transferred to City which used to be $1 more raise)

    Application Details

    I interviewed online. The process took 1 week - interviewed at Walgreens in January 2009.

    Interview Details

    I put in an application online and was called in for an interview. The person who was going to interview me wasn't in the store, so I had to stand around and wait for 30 minutes for her to get there. We went into her office and sat at a desk, where she first had me fill out all the paperwork like I was already hired, then she started asking me questions.

    Interview Questions
    • The interviewer asked me if I thought my age would keep me from lifting boxes and stocking shelves.   View Answer
