Difficult Interview

Intern Interview

Intern
Parsippany, NJ

I applied through a recruiter and the process took 6 weeks - interviewed at Daiichi Sankyo in May 2014.

Interview Details – 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. Four different people during a length of two hours asked mostly behavioral questions. I went home early afternoon, and was offered the position within 8 hours of completing the interview process. Began the position within two weeks. Overall process: 6 weeks

Interview Question – "If I were to give that pale by the door, filled with rocks, and I asked you how much water can you fill the pale with? How you would go about it?"   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – Hiring recruiter was the most helpful lady I have ever had and was very interested in getting me the best offer for the position. Ultimately was provided a substantial offer, and accepted.

Pharmaceuticals Sales Representative Interview

Pharmaceuticals Sales Representative

I applied online and the process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Daiichi Sankyo.

Interview Details – 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.

Interview Question – Why pharma? Why pharma? Why pharma? Why haven't you worked in pharma?   View Answer
