    Interview Details

    Pharmaceutical sales is one of the toughest industries to break into, and unfortunately it seems that the best way to do so is through networking. I applied for the Los Angeles Region pharmaceutical sales representative position and was offered a phone interview within about 2 weeks after applying on their corporate site. Interview lasted approximately 30 minutes, which was conducted by an outside company and was very general (education, GPA, desired salary...etc) with perhaps only one or two questions as to why you want to work for AZ. It seems that they use phone interviews to screen for candidates, and only invite those that already have significant industry experience for a 1-1 interview. Therefore, if you are a recent college graduate looking to get into pharm sales, I suggest starting with smaller companies and moving up towards large ones such as AZ.
