People who try to get a job at a pharmacy face a tough competition. According to the latest statistics, more than ten people people submitted their application for every single pharmacist job opening.

Beautiful pharmacistIt is not easy to succeed, becasue you can hardly stand out with your knowledge, or education… (all applicants will have the same (or similar) education and credentials).

For this reasons, your answers to the questions of the interviewers, and your ability to connect with them in an interview, will decide a winner at the end.  Let’s have a look at the questions they commonly use:

  • Why have you decided for a career of a pharmacist?
  • What do you want to accomplish as a pharmacist, in your life, and in your daily job?
  • Tell me about your education and previous experience.
  • How would you deal with a stupid/irate/aggressive customer in a pharmacy?
  • How do you spot drug seeking behavior? Do you have any experience with it from the past?
  • Would you mind working overtime/ at weekends?
  • What subjects did you find most interesting when you were studying for your degree?
  • Do you believe to have a right personality for a job of a pharmacist?
  • Where do you see yourself in five years time?
  • How do you ensure your knowledge stays up to date?
