    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at PharMerica in November 2012.

    Interview Details

    Did my extern there. They decided to call because of an open position. It took about 2 weeks to get a call back for an interview, but the process was pretty simple. Just questions about situations and what I would do.

    Medical Records Associate Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Beaverton, OR
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Beaverton, OR
    Application Details

    I applied through other source. The process took 6+ weeksinterviewed at PharMerica in June 2012.

    Interview Details

    It was really hard to track down the woman hiring because there was no response for so long. Then, suddenly, they needed someone RIGHT NOW. So I was asked to interview and found their office (rather difficult to find because it's at the back of a huge office complex and there are no signs for it).

    I met with the interviewer and she was nice, asked the usual questions. Then there was a short quiz including alphabetizing names, a multiple choice on drug names, and then a typing test. None of these really matter but if she's on the edge about you, then you are more likely to be hired if those scores are good.

    The hiring was fine, they send you a package of stuff to sign for benefits, etc. Nothing out of the ordinary.

    Be aware that the interviewer is not the official word in your pay, though. I know someone who was offered a position at $14/hr and then corporate turned around and said no, $13. Something to consider.

    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at PharMerica in January 2010.

    Interview Details

    Outside recruiter set me up with company recruiter. One phone interview, then was passed on to hiring manager. Face to face with him, then did personality and IQ tests. Last, interviewed with senior management.

    Interview Questions
    • Nothing too difficult - mostly talking about past successes and failures and how I would do things differently   Answer Question
    Negotiation Details
    I should have pushed harder. They matched my salary, plus I'd get commission. I pushed a bit but could have pushed harder and gotten more. Once you are hired you never get a salary increase. "You want a raise, go out and sell more and that will be your raise."

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at PharMerica.

    Interview Details

    Hiring process seemed dysfunctional. Apply to one person, interview by another, third interview with a VP, offer of employment comes from the first person you talked with. It seems as though if enough people talk with you, nobody has to take the blame if you don't live up to their expectations.

    Interview Questions
    • I was not surprised by any of the questions. Just asked the standard about different scenarios and how you handled them   Answer Question

    They made an offer, I accepted
