I was told the position had been filled by a contractor. A template rejection email was sent to me 6 weeks later.

Pharmaceutical Interview

Pharmaceutical

I applied through other source and the process took 3 days - interviewed at Novo Nordisk Pharmaceutical Industries in August 2010.

Interview Details – Played phone-tag a lot with HR and managers- this should have been a warning sign. It took about a month to hear back. The managers at my site were very friendly - at first- and really hyped-up the place like it is the "best place to work for". The managers and supervisors were very nice and willing to wine-and-dine you to get you in to the company.

Interview Question – What will you bring in to the company?   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – I was able to negotiate the salary. I was offered a different job than what I had applied for. It is a great company but very bad environment, thanks to the immediate supervisors and managers who seem to not know what they are doing.
