Difficult Interview

Principal Scientist Interview

Principal Scientist
Salt Lake City, UT

I applied online and the process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Watson Pharmaceuticals in June 2012.

Interview Details – This was a whole day process. Had to meet with different departments and had a luncheon during which the interview continued. There was a power point presentation and had to summarize a clinical trial result.
The one on one interview and group one was nice and friendly but I observed what looked like hostility during the lunch....I cannot confirm this.
There was no question asked after the presentation though there were about 20 people in the room and an opportunity to ask questions was given by the moderator,
Generally, very nice people.

Interview Question – Summarizing the clinical trial result   Answer Question
