    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took a weekinterviewed at Sanofi Pasteur.

    Interview Details

    I found the interview to be "Boiler Plate." The questions were canned questions with little variance from what you read about in magazines on the subject. The only rabbit trail we got off on was about my past experience. They spent a lot of time asking about my experiences at past jobs and fortunately it was what they were looking for. One pointer is to be able to talk about extra curricular activities. What do you do outside of work type questions. Some time after I got hired I asked my hiring manager what it was that made them decide to chose me. He told me that I showed interest and got involved in a number of activities which meant I could handle multiple things going on at the same time.

    Interview Questions
    • I did not find any question to be difficult. Some were more probing than others. I suppose that a question like "Name a conflict you had at your last job and tell us how you handled it." was one thing I did not expect.   View Answer

    I applied through college or university – interviewed at Sanofi Pasteur in February 2013.

    Interview Details

    Two rounds, one on my college campus, one on site. The one on campus was very easy, and many spots were made available. If your interviewer approved of you, your resume is passed onto their hiring managers, who then may decide to give you another interview for a more specific position they have available.

    Biological Sales Associate Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Swiftwater, PA
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Swiftwater, PA
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 3+ monthsinterviewed at Sanofi Pasteur in January 2013.

    Interview Details

    The hiring process for this position was slightly long, but the company did a great job communicating effectively and efficiently! I had two in person interviews and a phone interview before being offered the position. The final round of interviews included me speaking with three executives in the Sales department who were extremely friendly and made me feel super comfortable. I also was required to give a sales pitch during my interview on one of the company's products that I was given 2 weeks notice about to prepare for. It was all around a great interview experience and I felt very welcome.

    Interview Questions
    • The most difficult part of the interview was probably the pitch, just because I have had zero experience in sales before and I was not sure what they were expecting.Trying to remember all of the stats on the product would have been easier if I had not been so nervous about being in an interview. Otherwise. the questions were very typical of any job interview.   Answer Question
    Negotiation Details
    It was over a month before I heard back from the company, but that is because it is such a large company and the positions become available in this department on a rolling basis.
