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.

I applied through a recruiter and the process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Watson Pharmaceuticals.
Interview Details – Interviewed with a Director and Ass. Director in the IT department at Parsippany. Both were extremely professional during the interview. Both knew what they wanted in a candidate and conveyed that during interview. Both were very professional/nice throughout the whole process.
The external recruiter used by Watson was very weak. Did not ask for my feedback on the interview nor followed up with me. I had to follow up with her numerous times only to be told in one line that the company would pass. I received no feedback on my interview nor any info on why the organization passed. This was a great disservice to the 4+hrs spent on this interview. The recruiter throughout the whole process was very unresponsive and unprofessional.
Interview Question – Ok Sell yourself to me on why I should give you this job. Answer Question
