    Relief Pharmacist Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Retford, England (UK)
    Accepted Offer
    Neutral Experience

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Walgreens Boots Alliance (Retford, England (UK)) in April 2015.

    Interview

    Chat in a coffee shop with the area manager. Very informal but all the relevant questions were asked, such as experience, why us?, flexibility, salary expected. They were pretty short of pharmacists so I expect it was easier than it might have been. They are desperately short of pharmacists now so there is a good chance of employment. They are not as bad as portrayed in the media but, they are not the best either. All community pharmacy is struggling at the moment.
