Interviewing at Walgreens was great! The DM I interviewed with was nice and friendly, and it was super easy to talk to him. The interviews are situational-based, so questions like, "Tell me a time something changed and you had to learn how to accept the change and move forward" or "Describe a time in which you dealt with an unpleasant customer." I would recommend looking at situational interview questions beforehand to help prepare your answers a bit!
Pharmacy Intern interviews usually aren't intense. Questions will range from the usual about your basic strengths/weaknesses to your customer service/teamwork skills. They're mainly looking for pharmacy students with consistent availability and a good work ethic. If you meet those criteria, you're fine.
The best way to prepare for Walgreens interview is to come up with stories that describe situations that you were a leader, helped someone, or solved a conflict. These interviews are all about responding to situational questions
The best way to prepare is to have several anecdotes prepared for times when you encountered a situation (tough, rewarding, challenging interaction) and how you handled that situation. Most of the interview questions are situational, to get a gage for how you will handle patient interaction. It is okay to not have any prior pharmacy experience, just use situations from another job or from school. It's important to remember how you handled each situation and the outcome.
