    Medical Sales Specialist Interview

    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took a weekinterviewed 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.

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed 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.

    Application Details

    I applied through college or university. The process took a dayinterviewed at Eisai -New Jersey in October 2010.

    Interview Details

    It was an on campus interview. The hiring manager was a PhD in Organic Chemistry and was interviewing for 8-10 synthetic organic chemists and 2 biochemists. I have a PhD and post-doc experience in biochemistry. He had very minimal knowledge about the subject and position. I described my research with the slides I had printed. He mentioned that he heard few key words during my research description and would get back to me if I get selected for on-site interview in about a month. Of course, I didnt hear from him again. (except for the thank you notes followup etc. )

    • No difficult questions were asked. I was just asked to give a brief description of my research experience.   Answer Question
