    Product Support Representative Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Santa Barbara, CA
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Santa Barbara, CA
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 4+ monthsinterviewed at Allergan in August 2013.

    Interview Details

    Quick Background: College graduate (2012), working part time for ~1 year.

    Applied in May, received a phone call/interview in July, interviewed on-site in August. I heavily prepare with areas of focus sent by Hiring Manager, questions posted online, and job requirements.

    Interviewers were very polite and professional. 1hr panel interview and 1hr 1:1 with HR. Questions were predetermined in packet and were complex in nature. All answers required a situation, action taken and result.

    My only grievance was with the length in time the process took. I also had to follow up twice to find out if I had received the job, to which I was sent a stock "pursued other candidates" reply.

    Interview Questions
    • No question was too difficult. However, you NEED to extensively prepare and have a varied amount of answers (situation/action/result) for both positive and negative experiences.   Answer Question

    The process took a dayinterviewed at Allergan in March 2010.

    Interview Details

    ok to fair. The place is nice, the people complain constantly about paperwork and reports. I believe this is typical in their field, but it still is tough to hear that constantly. Overall the people seemed good, a stable growing company is definitely a rare find these days.
