The Pharmacy positions at CVS play an integral role at the company and are often on the front lines of health care.

The Virtual Job Tryout that you’ll get will assess the major responsibilities you’ll encounter on a day-to-day basis: demonstrating genuine care for patients, advising on prescriptions, and supporting management and Pharmacy Technician staff.

Let’s dive into each one of the test sections, to get a better understanding of what you’re about to face:

What Drives You

This sub-test allows CVS to learn about the things that motivate you, and your preferred work environment. You’ll be shown a series of paired statements. Then, you’ll be asked to click on the statement that best describes your ideal job.

Tell Us Your Story

A biodata section. You’ll be asked to share your work history and experience on different aspects relevant to the Pharmacist position (like how much experience do you have with working with patients). Other questions could refer to your personality traits or personal skills (like how are your customer service skills).

Describe Your Approach

On this sub-test, you’ll see two opposite statements, and you’ll need to determine which one describes you best. While you must be truthful, try to keep in mind work situations that are relevant to the Pharmacist position.

As a pharmacy Tech, you’ll use your knowledge and skills to help people get the medications they need, assist other Pharmacists and management.

The technicians must take the initiative and responsibility for their own work, while multitasking most of the day.
Let’s dive into each one of the test sections:

Work with Customers & Colleagues

This situational judgment test resembles the Pharmacist SJT – you’ll be given a work-related scenario, followed by four possible responds. You’ll need to Rank two of the options - one as the MOST likely and one as the LEAST.

Ensure Quality

As a pharmacy tech, you will assist pharmacists and schedule medication deliveries, so attention to details is crucial. On each question of this sub-test, you will need to validate prescription information and identify errors.

Fill Prescriptions

The “Fill Prescriptions” sub-test assesses the way you make fast calculations under pressure. The questions on this section are not especially hard, but try answering this question within 34 seconds:

 

 How many pills should you dispense for the patient?

Prescription Information

Dosage instructions

Days' Supply Needed

2 pill, 3X per day

27

Pills per bottle
17

Answer & Explanation

The correct answer is nine full bottles, and nine additional pills.

To calculate this, you should work in two steps:

First, calculate the total amount of pills the patient needs, similar to the calculation you did on the first two questions in this test:

Amount of Dispensed Pills = No. of pills taken every time X No. of times a day X Day's Supply needed

Amount of Dispensed pills = 2 X 3 X 27 = 162

Second, to calculate the number of full bottles and additional pills, you should divide the result by the number of pills per bottle.

No. of bottles = (Amount of Dispensed pills)/(Pills per bottle)= 162/17 = 9.529

This means that you will have nine full bottles. To find the number of additional pills, multiply the number after the decimal by the number of pills per bottle:

Additional pills=0.529 X 17=9

CVS Pharmacy Cashier Virtual Job Tryout

Take a look at the CVS Cashier VJT subtests:

 

CVS Cashier VJT

 

The responsibilities of CVS Cashiers typically include stock, customer service, and sales duties.

Let’s understand a bit more about this VJT and Its different sections:

Work with Customers and Colleagues

This sub-test assesses the way you work and interact with associates and customers. Every question first presents a situation that resembles the situations you’ll encounter as a store associate. After reading the situation presented, you’ll need to pick two statements what would be most and least likely in that situation.

Check Your Inventory

This sub-test includes six questions with each presenting product information. You need to compare the product information to a verification table, and select Match or Error based on the comparison.

What Drives You

This sub-test examines your motivations. You will need to pick your preferred work environment from two statements.

 

 

I prefer a job where:
I can provide great service to customers  OR  I am always busy working. 

 

Answer & Explanation

The preferred answer is "I can provide great service to customers" since it proves that your most basic wish is to help others. This is an important and essential characteristic that employers seek in their workers, as this would bring good reputation to the store and raise sales in the long term.

CVS Pharmacy Store Manager Virtual Job Tryout

Take a look on the Store Manager Virtual Job Tryout sub-tests:

 

CVS Store Manager VJT

 

Note: If it is your first step in the company, you’ll probably spend your first months in a training program called SMIT (Store Manager in Training). This program will help you prepare to be promoted to a Store Manager role (within 12 weeks - 24 months). The VJT you will get for the junior position is basically the same.

As a store manager, you’ll learn how to run a business and develop a team. That’s why this VJT is very focused on your managing skills.

Let’s have a closer look at the CVS Store Manager VJT:


Work with Customers & colleagues

As a store manager, human relations are essential. This VJT sub-test includes eight situational judgment questions. Every question begins with a different scenario related to your work as a store manager, followed by four statements. You need to pick you would be most and least likely to do.


Manage Your Day

As a store manager, you will work closely with customers and patients, along with store associates and higher management.

That’s why your prioritizing skills are so important.
On each question of this section, you’ll need to prioritize four tasks that you will likely face on your job. Check out this sample question:

Rank the following situations in order of most to least impact on your store's overall results.
(A) You overhear two associates have misunderstood the recent policy change that you are implementing in your department.
(B) Two of your associates notified you that they will be quitting their jobs in the next month, and you must find new people to replace them.
(C) Your overall sales from the last quarter are diminishing.
(D) When walking around the office, you notice that many associates are not concentrating on their work and seem unmotivated, regardless of the big sale coming up tomorrow.

Answer & Explanations

The correct answer is: D > A > B > C

Situation D should be prioritized first. This situation deals with meeting deadlines, sales, and the work environment. Because there is a big sale tomorrow, the employees must utilize the remaining hours to prepare for it. As their manager, it is your responsibility that the employees and company are ready. Therefore, this is an urgent matter. Also, this problem is related to numerous employees. By handling it, you may improve their motivation and the working environment, which will only have positive consequences in the future.

Situation A should be prioritized second. This situation deals with policy issues that must be clarified to maintain efficiency and productive work. As their manager, you must make sure that all employees are following your new policies. This situation can be resolved quickly by talking to the associates and explaining the new policy and its logic.

Situation B should be prioritized third. This situation deals with human resources and planning. This is not an urgent situation because you have until the end of the month to solve it. You need to take care of this staff shortage; otherwise, you will not have enough employees to do the work, and your department’s productivity might go down.

Situation C should be prioritized fourth. This situation deals with a general trend in your department. It requires long-term analysis and figuring out why the sales rate has diminished until you see any results, so a short-term solution might not be found.

 

Diagnose with Data

This sub-test assesses your analyzing skills. As a store manager you will analyze sales numbers to know how your store is performing. This sub-test includes a profit and loss report, followed by six data analyzing questions.

What Drives You

This sub-test examines your motivations. From two statements pick the work environment you most prefer.

Tell Us Your Story

This is a Biodata section, to evaluate your experience and background, and also to check how you assess your strengths and weaknesses.

Describe Your Approach

This sub-test assesses your preferred style and approach to work. Every question includes a series of statements, and you will need to secede which of the statements represents you most.


What Makes the CVS Virtual Job Tryout So Hard?

  • CVS doesn’t use a “cookie-cutter” approach for all positions. The right answer to a question on the Pharmacist VJT will fail you on the Store Manager VJT.
  • The questions may look like a walk in the park, but the truth is that the correct answers are quite tricky. CVS uses sophisticated predictive modeling to flag candidates that try to “please” the system. That’s why it’s not recommended to answer based on a hunch or common sense.
  • You need to answer fast - The Virtual Job Tryout tests are not timed, and the system will let you know the approximate time for completing each subtest. But our test experts found that answering too slowly will affect your score.
  • If you fail, you will not be able to reapply and retake the CVS Virtual Job Tryout for six months.

CVS Interview Questions

The CVS interview process varies greatly between positions. Having said that, if you are applying for an entry-level store job, you’ll probably get straightforward basic interview questions. Here are some of the questions you might get on CVS interviews:

  • Tell me about yourself
  • Why do you want to work for CVS?
  • Tell me about your strengths.
  • What are your weaknesses?
  • Where do you see yourself in five years?

CVS Virtual Job Tryout Scores

After finishing and submitting all VJT sub-tests, The VJT system will score you from 1-3 (Candidates cannot see this score).
Normally, you need to score a 3 to move on to the interview stage. But in some cases (if you applied through the Graduation Alliance for example, or if there’s an urgent need for staffing of the position to which you have applied to), you would still be able to get an interview if you scored a 2.


CVS Hiring Process

The CVS hiring process takes about 2-3 weeks to complete. The steps you’ll need to go through are:

1. Apply to one of the positions that are open on CVS’s website.
2. Take the Virtual Job Tryout
3. Interview at the store you applied.
4. Drug test
5. Offer

The whole process can take a few weeks (but it could be longer, I know that some candidates waited 6 whole weeks before they started their training).
