    Primary Care Sales Representative II Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Atlanta, GA
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Atlanta, GA
    Application Details

    I applied online – interviewed at Boehringer Ingelheim Pharmaceuticals.

    Interview Details

    This was a ramp-up interview process for product launch and moved very quickly. There was an initial phone screen to verify years of experience in diabetes (at least 2 yrs in diabetes required). This was followed by a "cattle call" type interview in Atlanta, where all candidates for multiple positions were in one room and called individually for one-on-one interviews. The 3 candidates for my position were interviewed by the district manager who picked one of us (me) to send on to the regional manager in another room. If the regional approved, the offer was made, contingent on background check, etc. The interview was fairly painless, basic questions. Both managers were very friendly and put me at ease. There was an opportunity with both managers to review resume and brag book. BI has great people but beware of large administrative burden making work/life balance difficult.

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at Boehringer Ingelheim Pharmaceuticals.

    Interview Details

    Like most pharmaceutical sales jobs, this was primarily a situational interview. The interviewer wanted to know about specific situations that I had been in, how I handled those challenges, and the result which came out of it. Learn the S/TAR format (Situation/Task, Action, Result) and you will be miles past your competition.

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Fremont, CA
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Fremont, CA
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Boehringer Ingelheim Pharmaceuticals in August 2014.

    Interview Details

    Sent multiple e-mails from HR that were confusing and even had an HR representative say how mice it was to speak with me even though I never had?, finally had the interview process squared away. Finally set up and met with a 6 person panel over 3 hours. Met with the hiring manager who was very unprofessional, swearing and cussing allot during the interview, saying how he wants the perfect person for their department as well.. Met with another lead in the department and he was airing their dirty laundry to me in regards to the management. Then met with an engineer that was not in the department asking me a ton of engineering questions that have nothing to do with logistics. All in all I was very turned off by the process as a whole. after a month and half I never received a call, e-mail or letter in regards to to my interview or hiring?
