The Interview

When interviewing for a position with Walgreens, you will likely have to go through a structured interview covering real workplace scenarios in customer service, such as items being out of stock or pharmacists being absent, or other questions as related to your positions. Try to answer concisely while still covering all relevant details and include references to past experience if relevant. Taking care of patients and following corporate policy are key priorities.
For some positions, you might have to go through a second interview with someone from a relevant professional field, for instance, a pharmacy technician candidate would face a pharmacist or a pharmacy manager in their second interview.

Advice for the Walgreens Assessment

  • When scheduling an In-Store Assessment, pick a time when the store is not too busy.
  • Avoid scheduling the test too close to the opening or closing time.
  • Dress business casual – a suit is overdoing it, but you should not be looking sloppy.
  • Arrive 10-15 minutes before the scheduled time of the test.
  • Prepare for the test in advance by working with sample questions and simulated tests.
  • Request a list of the documents that you will have to present at the interview in advance.
