Average Interview

Application

I applied online. The process took 1 dayinterviewed at Pfizer.

Interview

I applied online through the company's website. Two weeks later, I did a phone interview with the hiring manager that lasted for about 30-40min. About ~1.5 month later, I was invited for an onsite interview. The interview was from 830a-330p, with 7 one-on-one meetings, an job talk presentation, and lunch. Everyone was very nice and informative. There were lots of behavioral questions.

    Interview

    Applied online, but contact to hiring manager through contacts got things rolling. Phone interview with hiring manager and members of the team. Invitation to an on-site interview two weeks later, consisting of a talk and meetings with groups one or two people throughout the entire day (14 meetings total!). Collection of internal and external references the next 2 weeks. Great: received detailed feedback to what the references said.

    I applied online. The process took 2+ monthsinterviewed at Pfizer (San Diego, CA) in October 2010.

    Interview

    Submitted resume online and got email from HM two weeks later to make appointment for phone interview. One week after phone interview got invitation for onsite interview. Onsite was from 8am-4pm, including presentation and 1:1 meeting with 10 people in groups of 2 and 30min each group. All people are very friendly. Overall, a good interview experience. Received offer one month later.

    Advice: be well prepared for each step: phone interview, onsite presentation, and 1:1 interview.
