Medical Sales Specialist Interview

Medical Sales Specialist

I applied through a recruiter and the process took 1 week - interviewed at Eisai -New Jersey.

Interview Details – Was contacted by a recruiter on a Friday. After being screened on the phone by the recruiter, I was scheduled for a face-to-face interview with the hiring manager for the following Wednesday. Because of scheduling conflict, it turned into a phone interview on Thursday. It was a conversation with the manager going over my resume and my background. Towards the end of the call, we scheduled a face-to-face with him and another manager for the next morning. The next interview was more rigid and consisted of behavioral questions using the STAR method for answering. By noon, I was at the airport flying to Arizona to interview with the Regional Director. There were some behavioral questions, but it was mostly conversational as he was trying to determine if I would be a good fit for the company. That interview lasted for about an hour and a half before I was driven back to the airport for the flight back. Before I got on the plane, the recruiter had called me to tip me off that I had got the job. On the drive home that night, I was contacted by the hiring manager to let me know that he was offering me the position.

The whole process took less than a week and I was impressed by everyone I had met with during the interviewing process. They were a big reason why I had accepted the position with Eisai.

Interview Question – There were no difficult or unexpected questions. The questions were standard behavioral questions where you need to answer using the STAR method. The interviewing DMs were very nice and conversational.   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – Always counter offer, never accept the initial offer.

Project Manager Interview

Project Manager
Woodcliff Lake, NJ

I applied online and the process took 3 weeks - interviewed at Eisai -New Jersey in November 2009.

Interview Details – After initial generic discussions with an HR rep a phone interview was setup to discuss the position in detail with the department hiring manager and the medical lead representing the product that needed support. The company understands they represent numerous cultures and spent a fair amount of time discussing how you would deal with cultural differences asking for examples of your successes. The company recently reorganized into Product Creation Units so if they don't offer an explantion of how they report into and work within these new teams I would suggest asking them.

Interview Question – We work with numerous companies in different countries, please provide an example of how you worked with different cultures and any problems you encountered.   Answer Question
