Medical Representative Interview (Positive Experience; Easy Interview)
I applied in-person and the process took 2 days - interviewed at The Himalaya Drug Company in January 2009.
Interview Details – Spoke to Regional Manager under whom the hiring was going to happen. Introductions were made to each other. Little bit of personal information and background was discussed. Interview day and time was scheduled.
On interview day 1st round was conducted by Regional Manager. She gave me a copy of one of the Product Brochure to go through and present it as if I was to sell the product. Done the presentation, she raised some queries about the scientific terminologies used in the brochure, to which I answered satisfactorily. She then introduced me to Zonal Manager whom she is used to report. He conducted final round of interview the same day. He informed about the Salary details and told that it is not negotiable. So it was like take it or leave it.
