Pharmaceuticals Sales Representative Interview

Pharmaceuticals Sales Representative
Cypress Creek, FL

I applied through a recruiter and the process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Cardinal Health in October 2012.

Interview Details – The most important thing to know that this is a SALES position. If you are contacted just know that from the first moment that you speak to someone you are selling yourself to the management as to why you should be employed by this firm.

Interview Question – I did not have a question that I found too difficult   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – It was a concept negotiation process. I showed that I felt comfortable with what was offered and that was that.

Very Easy Interview

Director Interview


I applied through a recruiter and the process took 3 months - interviewed at Cardinal Health.

Interview Details – Pretty basic process. Screening now for females and periodically minorities. Don't count on this helping as this really only fulfills an EOE requirement. These guys are not the brightest bunch of people in HR and most of their hiring managers have very little experience in interview tactics and screening.

Interview Question – Fairly typical questions, nothing out of the ordinary.   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – Simple. Made counter, and they had to regroup. Benefits and compensation not really what I would call stellar.

Summer Nuclear Pharmacy Intern Interview

Summer Nuclear Pharmacy Intern

I applied through a recruiter and the process took 3 weeks - interviewed at Cardinal Health.

Interview Details – The interview took place over the phone. I wasn't asked that many questions, mostly why I was interested in the field and which locations I would prefer to work at. The majority of the interview was me asking the recruiter about the field itself. I asked her a lot of questions about how the nuclear pharmacies usually operated and what radiopharmaceuticals they typically used. They contacted me again about 3 weeks later with an offer.

Interview Question – There wasn't anything difficult. No situational questions. I think the main purpose of the interview was to gauge my interest in the field.   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – There was no negotiation. They offered me a competitive hourly wage and a relocation package for moving and housing.

Customer Advocate
Albuquerque, NM

I applied online and the process took 1+ week - interviewed at Cardinal Health in January 2010.

Interview Details – Questions do not matter, if they like you they will hire you whether or not you have the right qualifications. You apply online and hope that you get a phone call. They will call or email for an interview. You will probably have a group interview with several supervisors and they will all ask questions.

Consultant Interview

Dublin, OH

I applied in-person and the process took 4+ weeks - interviewed at Cardinal Health in October 2012.

Interview Details – I played phone tag for over one week with human resources. I was first told I had a job offer and after the fact I had to interview with over 8 people. My start date was delayed day by day for almost one week due to poor leadership communication/follow thru.

Negotiation Details – no problem. I was told I was well within the guidelines and after I was hired I was told multiple times by my supervisor I made too much money.

PET Technician I Interview

PET Technician I
Louisville, KY

I applied online and the process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Cardinal Health.

Interview Details – I was called in for the initial interview about a week after applying and scheduled it for the following day. Once there I was asked pretty standard questions by the supervisor and some specifics about my knowledge of cGMP, QC, lab techniques, etc... I also asked him a slew of questions about the job, pay, benefits,

A day later I got another phone call from HR to schedule a follow up interview for the next day during which I took a test and met my hopeful co-workers. The test was a measure of employability and general personal productivity as well as other things. I talked with the other people there for about 1.5 hours and then I was sent home.

On my drive home HR called me and offered me the job, which I accepted. I was working there about a week later. The whole process too about two and a half weeks total.

Interview Question – None of them were unexpected. Do your homework on the company and it's pretty easy to figure out what you should come into the interview already knowing and not. Other than that just be yourself and do what you can to appear knowledgeable.   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – I did not need to negotiate.

Operations Analyst Interview

Operations Analyst
Waukegan, IL

I applied through other source and the process took 1 week - interviewed at Cardinal Health in February 2010.

Interview Details – Interview process was amazingly fast. I went from phone interview to job offer in less than a week. The distribution center that was hiring for my position wasn't having much success finding people with my skill set.

Interview Question – There wasn't one question that was asked that doesn't appear in any interview preparation book.   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – I declined the initial offer after trying to get a higher salary. At that point they offered me what I was asking.

Operations Manager Interview

Operations Manager
Knoxville, TN

I applied online and the process took 4+ weeks - interviewed at Cardinal Health in March 2014.

Interview Details – Applied online and was contacted a few weeks later. The call came in the evening and I almost mistook it for a spam call. A phone interview was scheduled for the following morning but the interviewer never called me. I reached out to him several times and left messages to reschedule. I never received a return call. Instead, I received an email 2 weeks later saying that a more qualified candidate was hired. I'm at a loss to determine how I was deemed less qualified when I never had an interview.

Interview Question – When can you schedule an interview? I'm sure there would have been more questions had the interviewer actually showed up for the scheduled interview.   Answer Question
