i'd love to even know if I passed the math/irr at this point. ugh.

only 'a bit' ridiculous to be 10 days out from the close of the 'extended' math test completion date and not have any word if you passed or failed.

Go to the websites at the end of the behavioral review packets. That's ALL you need. Trust me. There are over 30 questions there. Wag uses those.

Alright guy's and Gals, Here is the deal. I had the interview two days ago. I am not going to go into detail regarding the questions but I will tell you that there are 10 questions. They are all behavioral questions about dealing with customers and employees. Don't bother studying the operating statement for this interview. Do some research on a STAR interview. They want to hear specifics- Dates, names and situations. For example "tell me about a situation where a customer was irritated, how did you handle it"?? Right answer would be details, including dates, names and specifics about the situation. Also, ADD A RESULT TO EVERY QUESTION!!!!!!!!!! Even say at the end of each question, "The result was" bla bla bla. Wrong answer would be ,"I deal with irritated customers on a daily basis and I always make sure they leave the store happy. They want DETAILS! I hope this helps

Those of us that have already gone through the interview had no idea what they were going to ask. We prepared (maybe some didn't) by the information that has been given to us. I think that it's only fair that the questions aren't leaked. There's a reason they didn't give us the questions beforehand. If you get the questions and others in your district didn't and they are more deserving of the job, but they don't do quite as well in the interview because some of the questions get them caught up, it's not fair to them. Everyone should be on an even playing field going in.
Very much agreed

Only some of them for sure because the big reset working slone is definitely one. Verified by people I know personally. This is the type of nonsense I am worried about. Throwing us a question we are not prepared for.

You know I have been told this numerous times. And also have been told numerous times by people above me "you have this" I tell them that doesn't make me feel better. And the reply... "you should because I know things." Wtf.
Whats the point of this crap then? What's the point of making us stress and freak out if you already know?

Bmgt...you are pitiful. Get a grip. It's not nearly as serious as you are making it out to be. More than 2 people have told you just to go over what they tell you on storenet. When is your interview? I'll be glad when it's over...you are quite annoying.

I'm not the only one who is on here asking about all this. I am also not the only one on here that's has asked numerous times. Wtf are you targeting me? Better yet wtf are you worried about what i am doing? I can tell you this, you and I are in different states. I'm not going to tell you anything specifics about my life. Im not a fuck!ng tard to reveal person crap about myself on a public forum. And correction, I had two different people tell me to study two different things both saying... that's all you need. While I APPRECIATE their help I want to clarify with each one. Isnt that the point of this forum... everyone is hoping someone will spill their guts. Everyone wants to know whats going on in other districts. So again I tell you if you dont want to help... DO NOT READ MY POSTS.

Gees, everyone needs to take a "chill pill". It's not too surprising that the interview questions centers around the "tell me about a time when..." sort of questions. This has been the trend in interviewing for all types of businesses within the last 10 or so years. It's actually a very lazy way for the interviewer to interview which is why it's so popular. This is also the type of interview that can lead to the most lying by the interviewee. The best way to prepare for an interview like his however is to go over in your mind the stores you've been at and think of various situations that you've encountered (good and bad) with your fellow employees, those under you, your supervisors, and the customers (especially the difficult ones) and jot them down. Do not go into an interview like this without a good amount of contemplation about the past.

Here's the thing. There's no need to get so testy. Everyone who cares is stressed out and worried about what the outcome of all this will be. NO matter how well you prepare, I there will be a question or two that you weren't ready for or one that you think of a better answer after you leave. That being said, the same thing is going to happen to everyone else that is interviewing. You're not going to remember every question in detail to share on this forum either. Haha my interview was like a whirlwind blur and am now just waiting for an answer.

Oh! And to answer your other question...as to why we have to do all this even though multiple people have been told that they are a shoe in and have it in the bag is that it's all a formality. They have to cover the bases so they don't get sued. They can manipulate any scores. So even if you tank on the interview and they want to promote you, you can probably come out on top. You said you did horrible, they say you were one of the best. Situations like that are going to happen somewhere, if not everywhere. They say they want to keep it as fair as possible, I just don't know if that's true. Just gotta see how it plays out.

There was also no reason for your post. Everyone is stressing out over this. Not just me. And to be singled out is chicken sh!t. And this is serious to me and to everyone else. No one on here wants to put their life on hold for another year. It frustrates me that i am basically interviewing for a job I already have. And I would rather come on an anonymous website and discuss this over and over again than discuss this over and over again with people close to me and put a strain on my personal relationships because of my own insecurities about f!_!cking up royally on this stupid freakin interview.

I don't know that I would call it chicken sh*t because I wasn't scared. I am sorry if you felt so attacked and for the way I presented my post. That was wrong of me. Everyone is upset/stressed about the fact that we have to interview to keep our jobs. The stress is getting to me, as well which is probably why I flew off the handle a bit...again, I'm sorry. You seem to be someone who is hard on yourself so I feel like even if you go in and ace the interview, you'll still feel like you bombed it. Think of your situations. And go in there and be as confident as you can be. Have that "I deserve this, I can't do it, and you'll want to keep me" attitude.

All I am looking for from this forum is help. Mostly help that makes me feel that what they have given us is enough... and that there isnt more I should be doing. I will study and go over whatever just to get this job. A lot of people on here complain about Walgreens and that it's a shitty place to work... well I don't think that. I WANT to stay with Walgreen and I want to be successful at walgreens. Maybe the walgreens those people work at f*cking sucks but I love my community and i love my district. What I don't love is trying for the same job I have all over again.
