Director Interview (Neutral Experience; Very Easy 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.

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

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.
