    Pharmacy Technician II Interview

    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online – interviewed at Geisinger Health System (Wilkes-Barre, PA) in May 2015.

    Interview

    The interview was short, sweet, and to the point. The interviewer had very few questions. Instead, they offered a lot of insight into the company and its operations and policies. If they are interested in hiring you, they will come to you for the interview if you can't make it to them. My interview was actually at at a restaurant after regular business hours. The only thing they aren't too open about during the interview is the compensation and benefits.

    Clinical Research Assistant Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Wilkes-Barre, PA
    No Offer
    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3+ monthsinterviewed at Geisinger Health System (Wilkes-Barre, PA) in August 2012.

    Interview

    The hiring process consists of filling out your online profile through their specific career center online or through a hiring agency. Don't get discouraged it takes weeks to months for this process of reviewing all applicants. Then you may receive a phone call which in my case was a first interview. Then you go to a second interview if offered at the hospital and unknown to me it was a panel interview so be prepared for the likelihood of that occurrence.

    Interview Questions

    • The most difficult part of this process is being myself when responding but not wanting to come off the wrong way. The question as to why you would be good at this particular job, or where do you see yourself in the next five years. My honest answer and what I would hope for would be working for this particular company and just being informed and working my way up salary and other wise.   1 Answer
