Your ego sounds larger than your retail skills. IF you were as great as you say, you wouldn't have any trouble being taken back.

You rated YOURSELF as having 85% for outstanding customer service, but there is a really good chance that you didn't have that high of customer service rating. Everybody rates themselves higher than their supervisors do. The part time student does have more recent seniority than you do. The seniority that you had before you up and left with apparently no notice doesn't count.

IF you have to work for the reasons you stated, apply at other stores and don't brag about your qualifications.

Just state that you had so many years of retail experience before you had to quit for health reasons. Walgreens isn't the only retail business in the world.
