    I applied online. The process took 2+ monthsinterviewed at Pfizer in January 2012.

    Interview Details

    Resumes are triaged by recruiting and candidates that meet criteria are submitted to hiring manager. Hiring manager may do phone screens to further narrow down the candidate pool. On site interviews are either a 45 minute panel interview with 4-5 individuals or a series of interviews with 4-5 individuals.

    Interview Questions
    • Questions tend to be very Pfizer centric. Hard for employees to step outside the culture. Candidates must do their homework on the company and the role prior to the interview.   Answer Question
    Negotiation Details
    There is little room to negotiate at the present time unless you have an highly desirable scientific skill.

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 2 daysinterviewed at Pfizer in January 2010.

    Interview Details

    I was a legacy-Wyeth employee who applied on line during the 60 days preceding my layoff. I was contacted by another Wyeth person who had been retained (a Director) and we discussed my accomplishments in my previous role. A couple of days later I was invited in for a "cattle call". A director from New York came down to meet with each applicant individually. She was 1/2 hour late for the interview and her attitude was rather smug. She acted as though she were just going through the motions. I later found out from an insider that all Wyeth applicants had been interviewed for the job but it was really just a show to make those who remained with the company feel that Pfizer was making an effort. The job went to an individual in New York.

    The process took 2+ monthsinterviewed at Pfizer in August 2009.

    Interview Details

    The process depends on the department you work for. Some interviews are very casual. Other groups will try to simulate the environment you will work in. Some interviews are in front of panels. Make sure you talk to the hiring manager in advance so you know what format you will interview in.

    Negotiation Details
    Very difficult. I found HR to be condescending. Ultimately I got what I wanted, but it is not easy.
