Do I still need a state issued technician license if I have an intern license

I am applying online for technician at Walgreens. I have already entered my intern license. However, it will not let me proceed because I do not have a TECHNICIAN license. An intern license is above a technician license. Why do I need the lower license when I have a higher license? Did Walgreens outsmart itself?

I'd just put the same info twice (unless your state requires both)

I thought there's an application for intern pharmacist on the Walgreens site, that or applying under pharmacist would allow you to input all the info so that you're considered an intern

No. Walgreens did not outsmart itself. You just didn't read. You're applying for the wrong position...try the pharmacy intern application and I'm sure you'll make much better progress.

Some states like Oklahoma require you to forfeit your technician license in order to receive your intern license. Plus, you're applying for a technician position you big dummy.
