    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Apotex Pharmaceuticals in February 2014.

    Interview

    I had a wonderful experience with Apotex and their recruitment procedure. I had a phone screen, followed by an assessment followed by a face to face interview. They seemed very thorough with their questions and the recruiting manager kept me in the loop of where my application was and provided feedback throughout. I did not get the offer as a previous employee came back into the role. However, I would apply for a position with them again.

    Application

    I applied through college or university – interviewed at Apotex Pharmaceuticals.

    Interview

    Very typical behavior questions. Interview panel consisted of 2 Engineers (Project Leaders) and one HR representative. HR rep asked all of the questions. Project Leaders seemed like the ones that would be making the decision so always make eye contact with them and look for indications of what they like and dislike from their expressions. Get them involved in your conversations.
