    Application Details

    I applied online - interviewed at Perrigo.

    Interview Details

    This was an internal IT interview - I was already an employee and was being considered for an internal job opening. The process consisted of a presentation before an interview panel, followed by several 1-on-1 interviews with each of the members from the panel.

    Each person I interviewed with had thoughtful questions and was very engaged throughout the process. The culture of this group seemed very positive and I was impressed by the experience.

    Although the job offer went to a more experienced candidate, I was invited to short follow-up meetings with both the hiring manager and his boss, which was thoughtful.

    Interview Questions
    • I can't recall specific questions, but there were not any curve-balls. Each interviewer had their own set of questions.   Answer Question

    Regulatory Affairs Project Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate  in  Allegan, MI
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Allegan, MI
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 6 weeks - interviewed at Perrigo in June 2010.

    Interview Details

    Perrigo's online employment page asks a lot of the standard questions, including contact information for references. This is the only job I've ever interviewed that all my references were not only contacted, but multiple times with many questions about me. The hiring director for my department performed a pre-interview phone interview before the face-to-face interviews were scheduled. Interviews on campus included 1:1's with directors/VPs of each department mine interacts with, as well as a group interview with all the managers within my group.

    Interview Questions
    • "How did you influence a change within your organization, but across groups?" A reasonable question for a matrixed organization. Articulating an answer in professionally acceptable language, and in a realistically efficient timeframe was challenging.   View Answer
    Negotiation Details
    They matched my previous salary, but did negotiate for more vacation than the boilerplate contract (due to my many accrued years in the industry)

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 3 weeks - interviewed at Perrigo in December 2012.

    • The second day of interviews was with value stream directors and plant managers, so the questions ranged a variety of topics. Nothing was too far from the standard situational based questions though.   Answer Question
