Pharmacy Technician Interview Questions

  1. 1.

    Where do you see yourself in five years?

      Think about your career goals before your interview. It is likely that you will be asked a question similar to this. Be prepared to talk about how your role as a pharmacy tech will fits into your five year plan. Don't have a plan? Take some time to look at your options. Research the career path of a pharmacy tech. You could work as a lead pharmacy tech or decide to go to pharmacy school. The options are endless!

      Ryan's Answer

      "In all honesty, my job search is solely due to me looking for a long-term, stable employer that I can eventually retire from. I love my career as a Pharmacy Technician and I really like everything that I have heard about your organization. Five years from now, I hope to be working here as a tech."

      Heather's Answer

      "My career goal is to pursue a doctorate degree in Pharmacy. My plan right now is to work full time as a Pharmacy Technician and work towards my bachelor's degree over the next four to five years. From there, I will look to pursue my doctorate. It is important for me to find an employer where I will be able to learn and grow and hopefully remain employed once I become a pharmacist."

      Ryan's Answer

      "In five years I'd like to have the opportunity to be in a leadership position in one of your pharmacies in this facility. I am currently in a leadership role in my position in retail and fully realize that I will have to start over as a general technician if hired here. You'll find out quickly if you hire me that my experience and leadership skills will be invaluable to the team."

      "I will like to be working as a lead tech in this company and maybe attending a nursing or PA program."

      Rachelle's Answer

      You seem to have a lot of direction, which is great! Would you be working the nursing or PA program in tandem with your job? It's important to address this so that the interviewer does not worry that you would leave your job once you return to school.
