    Interview

    Efficient, smooth process. Recruiter was friendly and started with a phone conversation. Met with lead HR person. Used an interview feedback sheet which shows they are trying to make an apples to apples comparison. Only had a first round interview, however they started on time and ended on time which is appreciated.

    I applied in-person. The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at Daiichi Sankyo.

    Interview

    The important portion of the interview is the behavior questions. The rest are pretty much of your resume. They need to know that you are someone who takes the initiative, as well as being accountable for their actions

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Daiichi Sankyo.

    Interview

    The interview process started by applying online at their website. I was contacted by a regional manager. The interview process included going over my resume from bottom to top. The recruiter seemed to scoff whenever I changed jobs. The most obvious disappointment included leaving a popular car rental company for a more lucrative position (3x the salary).

    He repeatedly stated why pharma sales. Almost like I wasn't good enough.

    After interviewing for this pharma company I had somewhat of a bitter taste in my mouth compared to the others that I have had contact with. Even when compared to the ones that I drove 200+ miles and had to pay $50 for parking and this was a phone screen.

    Overall I would consider the position but I didn't enjoy the phone interview.

    I applied through a staffing agency. The process took 3+ monthsinterviewed at Daiichi Sankyo (Parsippany, NJ) in June 2014.

    Interview

    I fist interviewed over the phone with my former manager. for 30 mins and the main topic was about my knowledge of excel being a huge plus. They wanted someone above average at using the program and that can communicate on a daily basis with the field. A couple weeks later I traveled to the company headquarters and sat in a small conference room getting interviewed by 3 different managers at once about my knowledge of the field and my background. They specifically were more concerned if you can understand how to work with computer programs and know how to research and investigate issues on your own (VLOOKUP and Pivot Tables)

    I applied to the position online, through indeed.com, and my college career website, as well as sent a confirmation email with my resume attached to the recruiter. I was contaced via phone within 40 minutes of sending the email, and arranged for a phone interview the following week, which lasted 13 minutes. Arranged for a face-to-face the next day, for a time at beginning of May. erview process was very nerve wrecking because this was a major position I knew I wanted to land.

Began the position within two weeks. Overall process: 6 weeks
