    Territory Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 4+ weeks - interviewed at ConvaTec.

    Interview Details

    Contacted through a recruiter. Telephone preliminary interview. About 2 weeks later had a face to face with the Regional Manager. About 2 weeks later a face to face with the Director of Saes. Both very pleasant and had both been with the company for a long time. This fact alone made me think this was a good company as the people were: not right out of school, and enjoyed their careers enough to stay on board.

    Interview Questions

    Marketing Manager - Ostomy Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate  in  Skillman, NJ
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Skillman, NJ
    Application Details

    I applied online - interviewed at ConvaTec in September 2013.

    Interview Details

    The process started when a ConvaTec Recruiter called me having just received my resume. Usual phone interview, followed by an in-person interview with three people (hiring manager, director and HR person). About a week later I had another interview with one of the VP's, followed by another in-person with the Sr.VP. It all seemed to be going great, until they literally dropped off the face of earth... despite several attempts to gain some feedback from HR in regards to where they were in the process, NOTHING. Not a "thank you but we've chosen someone else" email, nothing... THANK GOD, as this just went to confirm everything I've read elsewhere about this company. It would have been a horrible move to go there - so there... THANKS BUT NO THANKS!!!!

    Interview Questions

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Skillman, NJ
    Application Details

    The process took 4+ weeks - interviewed at ConvaTec in February 2010.

    Interview Details

    Submitted resume through their system and followed up via phone. I had one phone interview with HR and two rounds of on-site interviews each round consisting of 4 one-on-one interviews. The interviewers consisted of the hiring manager, the hiring manager's manager, an internal stakeholder and a couple in HR. Everyone was very polite, professional and not intimidating. Interviews consisted of interviewees talking about the requirements of the job and questions that helped me communicate how I was suitable for the job. I was also allowed to ask questions in a relaxed manner. There were some questions to gauge how I'd fit into the culture and if I had the personality and know-how to get the job done. Over all, I was very happy with the interview process and felt it was right to match me to my position.

    • Tell me about a time when a member on your team was not accomplishing what was asked of him/her and what did you do to handle that situation.   Answer Question

    I applied online. The process took 2 days - interviewed at ConvaTec in March 2010.

    Interview Details

    Very simple and straightforward process: phone screen with HR, followed by phone screen with the hiring manager. A couple of weeks later they brought me in to do soem 1 on 1 interviewing. This lasted about 1/2 day. They then called the next day to let me know of their interest, and I received their formal written offer a couple of weeks later. Pretty impressive and streamlined. I can sense talented people.

    • Why do you want to leave your current job?   Answer Question
    Negotiation Details
    I was able to negotiate some additional vacation time and a personal day off that I needed just after hiring. They were very flexible.

    The process took 2 weeks - interviewed at ConvaTec in March 2009.

    Interview Details

    Had a phone interview and then 2 one on one interviews with the hiring manager. Next steps would have been a field ride and another interview with two other managers/executives. seems like a good company looking towards the future. Money was okay-they will negotiate based on experience. Relationship based sale.

    Regulatory Associate Interview

    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2+ weeks - interviewed at ConvaTec in October 2011.

    Interview Details

    Straightforward interview with 4 people asking questions about my background and experience. These questions seemed kind of canned or preprogrammed like "tell me about a time when you missed a deadline" things like that. Also asked about "behaviors" that might have been related to company culture and performance expectations. Leadership and collaboration characteristics were of interest.
