    Application Details

    I applied in-person. The process took a day - interviewed at Express Scripts in August 2013.

    Interview Details

    You come in and do a data entry test. If you pass someone comes and takes you to another room to do a brief general interview. If they like what you have to say you are taken to another office to meet with a higher up for a more in depth interview. This all happened in one day.

    Panel interview with the standard questions. No real surprises. Local staff interviewed me following an phone interview by the hiring manager and director who lived in other locations. Local site opinion was as important as hiring manager and director.

    Interview Details

    Hiring has changed. Finance is interested only in individuals from high ranking colleges. The interview process is multi-phased and requires that the individual be seen as a person who is a good 'culture' fit. Prefers younger people who are willing to work for less to gain experience and won't complain about the enormous amount of hours.

    IT Director Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate  in  Saint Louis, MO (US)
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Saint Louis, MO (US)
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks - interviewed at Express Scripts in August 2014.

    Interview Details

    Interview Process included multiple telephone interviews followed by multiple in-person interviews. Job description for position was not accurate and differences were not identified early enough in the process to allow candidate to adjust focus. Everybody was extremely pleasant and professional!

    Make sure you can relate your experience to their job description (easier when the job you apply for is the one they interview you for). They really want leadership qualifications! The technical IT environment is highly evolved, but management of the functions is lagging behind.

    Interview Questions
    • What metrics have you used to track budget on past programs or projects? Difficult because I was unable to tell what they meant; do you mean earned value management, or do you want to know how numbers were arrived at on a past project? Several questions were "fuzzy" and meant to elicit personality traits.   View Answer

    Data Entry Technician Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in North Versailles, PA (US)
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 1 week - interviewed at Express Scripts in July 2014.

    Interview Details

    You start off by filling out an online application and typing assessment. The assessment lists about 26 entries with sample information you would be entering (name of doctor, health coverage company, address, etc.). You have 5 minutes to complete the assessment and it is required to print the entries prior so you will need a printer. I only got through 3 and a half so I thought I completely failed, but I was called for an interview two days later, and was told I did rather well. They look more at attention to detail and entering information without error, rather than speed and mistakes.

    On the interview, they bring you in a room and it is very relaxed. It is conducted by one interviewer and the are very friendly. They explain what the company does and what the position entails before the questions begin. There are 5 behavioral interviewing questions. At the conclusion of the interview, they explain that there are a few things that distract people from accepting employment (such as, parking, cubicle size, shift bids, noise limits, etc.) and if you would be ok with them. The interview takes about an hr.

    Interview Questions
    • Name a time when you had to perform the same activity over and over. What measures did you take to keep yourself from being distracted. What was the result.

      Name a time when you were given a directive you did not agree was in the best interest of the company. How did you handle it and what was the result.
        Answer Question
    Reasons for Declining

    I got the position, but after careful consideration I declined & decided to stay with the company I was currently working for at the time. The pay increase was minor compared to the 7-30PM shift I had at the time.

    Staff Pharmacist Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Albuquerque, NM (US)
    Application Details

    I applied through other source. The process took 3 weeks - interviewed at Express Scripts in April 2011.

    Interview Details

    Short and sweet. Online recruiters directly were most helpful. The third party recruiters appeared to be farmed out to another company and presented as directly representing Express Scripts. As taken per face value, the interview process was farmed and outsourced at the time. Now in real time all hiring is online, have resume ready to upload now as an addenda in HTML. Social media ( face book and others are preferred) sites are discouraged.

    Interview Questions
    • None, most questions were related to team building. Previous work experience at other job sites. Protect your identity by all reasonable means. Security questions abound.   Answer Question
    Negotiation Details
    Really no negotiation needed as salary was quite fixed
