Interview Details – Received an email to set up a time for a phone screening interview. The screening was different and didn't go that well. It was mostly about my background with a few situational questions aswell. When the interview person asked if I had questions I started to go down my list of questions, but she didn't answer ANY! She either said thats a question for the regional sales director who I'll speak to later on in the interview process or said legally she can discuss that at this time (regarding newest drugs, future of AZ, new trends etc). She was basically of no help and sounded like a robot the complete time.
