    Attorney Interview

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 3 daysinterviewed at Par Pharmaceutical Companies in September 2014.

    Interview Details

    Brief telephone conversation about the position and my salary expectations followed by on-line "interview" where I had to log into a system with my computer and record answers to questions using my webcam. I was not speaking to a real person, just a computer, so there was no opportunity for follow-up questions or any give and take. When the question comes up on the screen you have 30 seconds to formulate a response and then 3 minutes to state your answer. I found this to be very cold, impersonal, and much more difficult than a live interview. I am sure I did not present myself well due to my nervousness. I did not receive any feedback in the 2 weeks following the interview.

    Interview Questions
    • Can't remember a specific question. I had expected a typical "phone interview" line of questioning where I simply go through my qualifications. Most questions were of the "describe a time when..." type, which I think are much more difficult to answer in this format.   Answer Question

    Application Details

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 5 daysinterviewed at Par Pharmaceutical Companies in April 2012.

    Interview Details

    Only consisted of a phone interview. First the head of HR called to let me know, caught me off guard because I had been sleeping. A couple days later, the person I'd be reporting to called. Talked for about 15 minutes about my experience--seemed like he was just trying to get a feel of what kind of person I was (hardworking, driven, etc.), if I'd be able to travel all the way there, etc.. At the end, hinted that I'd gotten the position. HR called a few minutes later to confirm.

    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Par Pharmaceutical Companies in April 2009.

    Interview Details

    It was the most normal interview I have ever had. The people were down to earth and did not ask any ridiculous questions. During the interview I felt like I knew those individuals already. The HR was pretty stiff but they had no impact on the hiring process, they were simply there because they were supposed to be there.
