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.

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.

Pharmaceuticals Sales Representative Interview (Negative Experience; Average Interview)
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.
