Difficult Interview

Application

The process took 6+ weeks. I interviewed at Pfizer.

Interview

The hiring process was somewhat lengthy, but overall they moved quickly. It began with a Phone interview followed by several one on one, in person interviews with members of the team the applicant would work with. The last interview was a larger format interview with a panel of leaders at NY Headquarters.

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 4+ months. I interviewed at Pfizer.

    Interview

    Lasted around four months and seemed to be pretty unorganized. Should have communicated more with applicants to make it a transparent process. Feedback on reasoning could have also been more direct and helpful when not offered the position.

    Interview

    The interview process was very detailed. It started with multiple phone interviews, then an on-site visit with both individual and group interviews and a presentation. The process was very formal from the questions asked to the forms that the interviewers had to fill out.

    Interview Questions

    • The questions were more specific than anything I have ever been asked at any interview. At first I thought this was a sign of a very thoughtful process, but later it became a bit ridiculous. Some of the questions had absolutely nothing to do with anything I would do on the job, yet I was asked those questions anyway. If that is a tactic to get people to answer "off the wall questions" then fine. However, it makes me suspect that some of the HR formalities are completely out of touch with what is needed for the position. Some interviewers seemed desperate to fill in their worksheets.   Answer Question

    Interview

    There was no hiring process as during the King/Pfizer acquisition, upper management decided who should stay and who should go. Not a very effective method as Pfizer never got the real picture of where the work was being done. Additionally, if there were strained relationships, that played into the decision as well
