    Application Details

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at Ferring Pharmaceuticals.

    Interview Details

    Phone screen followed by a phone interview followed by face-to-face meeting at O'Hare airport. The hiring manager was more concerned about personality since he realized having a Ph.D. was proof of being able to gain therapeutic area knowledge.

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Ferring Pharmaceuticals.

    Interview Details

    Interview process went fast and well, however they do not bother to respond one way or another. I had to send 3 emails and then got an automated respond at 10:30 pm after reaching out for the third time. If you take the time to interview with 4 people a response should be expected.

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at Ferring Pharmaceuticals in December 2012.

    Interview Details

    First contacted by Talent Sourcing Consultant at Ferring who was very professional and open. Told me that HR would contact me to set up an interview.

    Never heard from HR, but got an email from the hiring manager's assistant setting up an on-site interview, without any mention of travel arrangements. Neither HR nor the hiring manager's assistant responded to emails asking about travel. A week later, got an email from the hiring manager's assistant changing my on-site interview to a phone interview.

    On the day of the phone interview, the hiring manager's assistant re-scheduled the phone call and then cancelled it altogether. Another VP at Ferring conducted a very brief interview - asked no questions about me, just spoke about Ferring, and was clearly not interested in the interview.

    I never heard back from the hiring manager's assistant about re-scheduling the phone interview. During the entire process, neither HR nor the hiring manager ever communicated with me - no phone call or email, and certainly no explanation or apology for canceling the interview.

    Interview Details

    Got the notification of opening via LinkedIn
    Applied and was hired very quickly
    Interviews consisted of
    HR testing (personality IQ + feedback)
    1st interview local mgr and colleagues
    2nd interview partners at other sites via Video
    Over all very professional though HR testing was not so insightful but not useless
    Hiring manager was very open and honest about the position and challenges
    Job title very different than role

    Interview Questions
    Negotiation Details
    Negotiations were okay. Not very much back and forth. Salary was known to be lower than previous position and so many perks were offered to fill the cash gap. Overall the perks offered and the genuine effort to do the best they could was acceptable.
