I applied through a staffing agency and the process took 6+ weeks - interviewed at Auxilium Pharmaceuticals in July 2009.
Interview Details – The interviewing process was lengthy, I met all of senior management for a mid-level sales management position for the impending launch of their new drug Xiaflex. It was a bit tedious but overall a fairly positive experience although I did not get the position. The follow up was timely on the recruiters part but there seemed to be hidden agendas with regards to the hiring decisions being made and driven from the top down, lots of people coming over from CV Therapeutics. With this tight job market and and the big layoffs in the biopharma industry its an employers market and they can cherry pick with so many displaced good people from down sizing across the industry.
