    Application Details

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

    Interview Details

    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.
