    Manager Interview

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 5 weeksinterviewed at AmerisourceBergen.

    Interview Details

    I applied online and I would like to say the process is over, but they still have not given a final determination.

    After I applied online, I received an email for an interview with HR. This was painless we reviewed my resume and she evaluated me for the level of position I was applying for. She told me in the interview I was to be advanced to next level.

    A week later I received an email telling me that a Sr. Manager would like to speak with me the next morning. [Okay, I was very interested in the position, but really if someone is a professional in the field do they really call at the end of the day and expect a candidate to take a call the next morning?]
    That aside I quickly rearranged my AM schedule at work and took the call.

    This meeting delved more into what I could offer the company, why I was applying and why I wanted to leave my current employer. At the end of the call she said she would like to move me to a panel interview.

    Two weeks later, I finally received an invite for a 2 part panel interview. They wanted to have the panel interview the next day! I declined, as I was out of town on business. We set the interview for the day I came back. This was to be a 4 person panel interview, but only 2 were available. I went to the interview, more of the same questions -- how would you handle people, how do you handle stress.

    I was then moved on to interview with the Hiring Manager. This interview was short with the topic of are you a fit for us. She said I was more than qualified and asked if the team size and responsibilities were to my liking. I said yes, She said they would get back to me on the next day, Tuesday, with their decision.

    On Wednesday, I got an email stating that the HR person was not able to attend the 4 person panel interview and would like to interview me. I was asked to pick times that I was available that week. I gave times for Wed, Th and Fri. All of my available times were declined; we settled on Tuesday of the next week.

    We met and I answered more of the same questions. Are you a fit, how would you handle a difficult team member. I asked when I would hear back and HR said by the end of the week.

    Well three weeks later still no response. I have emailed the recruiter.
    She apologized for not getting back with me and set up a meet date for feedback. That day and time came and went. I understand I do not have the job, but after 5 interviews and me rearranging my schedule they should at least send a 'dear thanks but no thanks letter.' Very disappointing.
    Be warned that if you apply your time and effort will not be respected.

    Interview Details

    I was contacted the day after I applied online via phone. We scheduled a date and time for my phone screen with a Sr. Recruiter. The day and time came and went. I followed up with the Recruitment Coordinator and she said she would follow up with the Sr. Recruiter. I never heard back. I thought it was very unprofessional and showed they do not care about their candidates.

    Human Resources Position Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Chesterbrook, PA
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Chesterbrook, PA
    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter – interviewed at AmerisourceBergen.

    Interview Details

    It was the most awful and unprofessional experience I have ever gone through in my 20 plus years of interviewing. Having written interviewing programs for HR, this was a nails down the chalkboard kind of a feeling. The director that I interviewed with was so structured in her interview process (had to answer in the STAR format) which was ridiculous since I think she would have been better off just seeing where the answer went and asking for specifics if it was needed. She needled me throughout the interview process. Challenged so many things that I was sharing in a negative way and I really couldn't understand what the motive was. In addition, she did a poor job of selling the position/company to me. When it was my turn to ask questions, she was cocky with her responses. At one point, it appeared that she mocked me by saying something I said earlier and using it as a response. I almost stood up half-way through to tell her this was not going to work out. I'm not waiting to see if they will call me back to interview with a second round of people--I'm letting her know thanks but no thanks. If this is what HR tolerates there, then a caution to all applicants. Maybe some of these negative reviews are accurate. HR needs to set the stage for the rest of the organization. It starts there. CEO should take a close look at what is going on.

    Screen interview & f2f w/ 2 hiring mgr's & HR. The male hiring manager was extremely rude, cocky, & arrogant and laughed at one of my responses. I had prepared an action plan ahead of time and they kept interrupting me during my presentation and did not let me finish.

    Finance Interview

    Application Details

    I applied online – interviewed at AmerisourceBergen.

    Interview Details

    Interviewed for a financial position at this company last year. I remember speaking to a director who was very unprofessional. I mentioned that I was considering going back for my MBA in the near future. His response was, "Why would you need that. I'm a director and I don't have an MBA." Every time I would explain my experience he would try to play devil's advocate with everything I said. He spent the interview trying to argue with me and get me to defend my resume. Interesting interview technique that I have not come in contact with. He also mentioned that he wanted to hire someone that was good at working on their own because he didn't want someone constantly bothering him. Seemed like he would be a nightmare of a boss so I turned down the opportunity at a 3rd interview and sent an email to the HR rep explaining the reasoning. Be ready to argue, not interview, if you happen to make it through the 3 stage process.

    Project Manager Interview

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 2+ monthsinterviewed at AmerisourceBergen.

    Interview Details

    I received a call from a recruiter about six weeks after I'd applied. Shortly after, I had a 30-minute phone interview with a hiring manager. Next, I was invited for face to face interviews. I had back to back 1:1 interviews for about three hours. I hadn't prepared for a behavioral interview, but that is exactly what it was. Each interviewer had a few pieces of paper containing questions that they read to me. As I answered each question, they wrote my answer under the question. If you've never experienced a behavioral interview, Google the term and practice. The odd thing was that after the interview the recruiter never called or e-mailed. I left her a voicemail, and then a couple days later I sent her an e-mail, but received no response to either. Finally, almost three weeks after my interview I reached her on the phone. She said that they had decided to go in a different direction. I have no idea what that means. She encouraged me to apply again for openings in the future. Everything about this job and company made a very positive impression on me, except that recruiter.
