How can they hire someone with a record of (for example) petty theft? Are they going to steal from the store? Some places can't afford to take that risk. However, I have also heard Walgreens doesn't hire anyone with any past or current going felonies or misdemeanors
If you applied for pharmacy tech; it will be VERY difficult for you to find a pharmacy tech job with ANYTHING on your record.
At this point in time, any job would be an asset to you. Retail especially, but anything really. Pharm techs (and almost all positions) have to operate a cash register (usually) and assist customers, so any job will help you with your customer service skills.
If you don't get the Walgreens job, keep applying . . .anywhere! One of my fellow managers worked at a gas station before she was hired with my company, another worked at a dry-cleaning store.
