    Great company with great employees, benefits, and perks


    Changed management and sold to Actavis. Closed Saint Louis facility as CEO moved to new company and left loyal Forest employees on unemployment line

    Advice to Management

    Company no longer in business as it was sold off and employees left to wonder why loyalty does not pay

    Average Interview


    A total of 3 face to face interviews plus one more to meet Regional Director. Did not need to meet the same person 3x but thats how they roll. Typical STAR questions..tell me about a time..They also have you look at a "mock detail" piece for about 20 minutes and then detail the hiring manager on said "mock drug"

    Interview Questions

    • They hand you a paper with different appointment's you have for the day mapped out. On another paper is information on how important each meeting is...from there you have to map out your day for efficiency.   Answer Question


    They offered me a higher base because of my experience but even that was lower than industry standard.
