    Consultant Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in New York, NY
    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took a weekinterviewed at Pfizer in September 2011.

    Interview Details

    It was a pleasant and easy interview process for me. I guess part of the reason is because it is a contract job and people come in or go more often than a full-time job. But the interviewers were very nice and candid to me. I felt at ease from beginning to end.

    Negotiation Details
    Very easy, I got what I asked for. But maybe it was because I didn't ask for much.
