I applied through a recruiter and the process took 3 months - interviewed at Ultradent in March 2013.
Interview Details – The company utilizes many different organizations to recruit potential employees. I was contacted several times by multiple organizations stating positions were available and my background would fit the company needs. Scheduling of the interviews went as expected with a date and time. As is often the case manufacturing environments can be at times hectic, there were complications with gathering team members for the round table style interview. After several months the company contacted me for a 1-on-1 interview, for a different advertised position.
Interview Question – "What role would you see yourself filling with this company?" The interview was more of getting to know how I would fit within the dynamic of the organization. There was not a specific position title provided so the interview was staged for me to fill in the blanks. As if the right answer would lead to the right job. It seems as though they are always looking for new talent. Answer Question

Interview Details –
First found out about this position from Monster.com. After applying they responded with an email fairly quickly. The manager responsible for hiring was traveling a lot so arranging for times to talk were challenging. I got to know his assistant quite well. HR had practically no role in the interview process. Upon first contact which was by HR, I was given a online test to complete in 24 hours.
After completion of the test I received a call for an interview, a few days later I had my first interview with the manager responsible for hiring. It was a relatively informal discussion which seemed quite positive. I was told straight up that next steps would be in a few weeks. There was absolutely no contact for 2 weeks. I had to reach out and things started to move again. 2 weeks later I was asked to fly to their HQ for interviews. It took another week to arrange for that meeting.
I flew out to their HQ and spent half a day with them meeting 4 of the sr managers. The next day I had a phone interview with the manager in Japan. I was given 2 assignments, one to be completed over night and the other to be completed in 3 days. This was regardless that I was busy with my own job.
I was left hanging another 3 weeks when I initialed contact again and found out that they offered the position to another candidate.
The people at the company were very personable, but I found the follow up rather lacking. Maybe because I was not their #1 candidate, but regardless I felt that I was left hanging the whole time and for the amount of effort and patience on my part got nothing out of it. It would no have been so bad if I did not have to make contact contact with them in order for things to progress to the next step. It seemed that if I did not instigate action mid way through the process would have been much longer dragged out. It was a frustrating process for me as it was indicated that I was one of their top candidates and after waiting so long not getting the job.

I applied online and the process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Ultradent in March 2011.
Interview Details – Asked to complete skills test then had 2 phone interviews one with the HR Manager then the Regional Manager. Once passed this interviewed in person with both individuals. Prior to meeting, asked to put together 30/60/90 sales plan before interview as well as prepare with material mailed a 10 minute role play on one of the products. The interview was OK but it was obvious the HR manager was from pharma sales by the questions. Sell me this pen was a dead giveaway. It's dental sales, not pharma sales. They provided videos made by employees which to me were somewhat inappropriate.
