    Analyst Position Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Princeton, NJ
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Princeton, NJ
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 5 weeksinterviewed at Sandoz.

    Interview Details

    Job application thru company website. It took about 2 weeks for an offsite recruiter to call and make time for a phone screen. During the screen, a list of behavioral questions were asked that targeted past job experiences and how they were handled. The recruiter was trying to see how I responded to stress and unstable situations. During the screen the recruiter types up his answer to prepare it for the actual hiring manager to read along with recommendations.

    The recruiter said he would recommend to the hiring manager that I get a phone interview. He was nice enough to provide insights on how to prepare (understand Sandoz products, current events). 2-3.5 weeks later, HR from corporate contacts me to set up phone interview. This was when I started to lose interest with the interview and the opportunity as a whole.

    Rather than asking for a list of possible times I could do the phone interview with the hiring manager, it was stated that I will do the interview at a specific day and time. This shows no flexibility at all. Yes, it can be assumed that any manager would be busy, but at least ask for specific times that would work for the candidate.

    I got the phone interview time straightened out. It was supposed to be up to 30 minutes but was cut in half by the hiring manager during the actual interview. The questions were similar to the initial phone screen but talks in detail about the job description and fit. I was told he would like to bring me in for an on-site interview. The request from HR actually came earlier than expected:4 business days.
    At that point, I declined because I already accepted an offer.

    If you are interviewing here, be aware of the amount of time it could take to set up your interviews. Perhaps the biggest turn off to expect is the lack of flexibility for interview time.

    Medical Director Interview

    Interview Details

    It was almost a month from the time I had my initial telephone interview to the actual live interview. Two of the interviews were telephone interviews. I was treated in a professional manner. The interview approach was behavioral-based, consisting of questions about how I would react or have handled different situations in the past. I felt they did not ask enough questions about my technical expertise.

    Interview Details

    The first round interview was going over my resume really quickly, and being described to about the projects that were available. Based on my experience, I was asked to choose the project that better fits my interest and background.

    The second round interview goes deeper on my resume, about what skills I have used in the projects I have done. Then I was asked a specific question that how would I help them improve the demand forecast accuracy with historical data and expert recommendations.
