Application Details

I applied online. The process took 2 months - interviewed at Pfizer in January 2012.

Interview Details

Resumes are triaged by recruiting and candidates that meet criteria are submitted to hiring manager. Hiring manager may do phone screens to further narrow down the candidate pool. On site interviews are either a 45 minute panel interview with 4-5 individuals or a series of interviews with 4-5 individuals.

Interview Questions
  • Questions tend to be very Pfizer centric. Hard for employees to step outside the culture. Candidates must do their homework on the company and the role prior to the interview.   Answer Question
Negotiation Details
There is little room to negotiate at the present time unless you have an highly desirable scientific skill.

    The process took 2 months - interviewed at Pfizer in August 2009.

    Interview Details

    The process depends on the department you work for. Some interviews are very casual. Other groups will try to simulate the environment you will work in. Some interviews are in front of panels. Make sure you talk to the hiring manager in advance so you know what format you will interview in.

    Negotiation Details
    Very difficult. I found HR to be condescending. Ultimately I got what I wanted, but it is not easy.
