Most applicants that interview for a position at CVS Pharmacy report a positive interview experience. Potential employees can expect a fairly straightforward interview process consisting of a face-to-face interview with a store manager, in which standard interview questions are posed. An example might include a question such as, "How you would handle a difficult customer?"

Applicants who are offered positions may need to complete a drug test and submit to a background check. An online CVS job application is available.
