    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at inVentiv Health (Chattanooga, TN) in August 2010.

    Interview

    I had a phone interview with the recruiter that was very detailed probably taking an hour or more. Many questions from experience to personality questions. After meeting minimum qualifications that the contract required by the other Pharmaceutical company, then face to face interview was set up. The face to face was set up within 2 hours driving from my home. The interviewing manager is a really great man with a lot of pharmaceutical sales experience. Again, detailed questions on experience and personality, along with sales simulation.

    Interview Questions

    • Sales simulation for product planned to be sold?   1 Answer

    Negotiation

    There was no negotiating, salary is set. I believe the salary is fair and competitive with other contract companies.
