Sales Representative Interview

Anonymous Employee  in  Downey, CA

Application Details

I interviewed online - interviewed at Allergan in July 2014.

Interview Details

Phone interview with recruiter followed by phone interview with hiring manager and face to face interview, next steps are interview with counterpart, then Director of Sales then a ride-a-long. The duration is a 2-3 week process but it goes by fast and they were in my experience very nice.

    I interviewed through a recruiter. The process took 5 days - interviewed at Allergan in September 2013.

    Interview Details

    Manager conducting interview was a "ball buster"! Challenging, cold, and beyond "to the point". No questions beyond career history. She seemed to have made a decision before the interview had even begun!

    Interview Questions
    • Questioning on each career move "Why did you move". Not in a warm, friendly manner.   Answer Question

    Application Details

    I interviewed through a recruiter. The process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Allergan in November 2012.

    Interview Details

    Applied online, spoke to their HR department. Went in for an interview with a panel.

    Interview Questions
    • All questions were based on a formulated procedure called STAR. Which I was unaware of until I had finished the interview. My answers didn't fulfill the "star" model. If I would have known that was what they were looking for, I would have answered them better.   Answer Question

    The process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Allergan in July 2011.

    Interview Details

    I thought it was pretty standard. Phone interview was not scheduled-the recruiter called me and then just went right into the questions so I was not prepared. I got invited to the one on one. It was a typical 'what can you do for us type of interview. The interviewer was impressed with my product knowledge but unimpressed that my resume wasn't a carbon copy of the typical sales resume. I felt like I was just an extra warm body there (wasting my time) to help the recruiter hit the interviewee quota for the hiring manager.
