    Pros

    People, benefits - all these things were great - never had a benefits packages as good as the one i had when i was with Forest.

    Cons

    Money - salary - Everything was great except the salary, underpaid with little chance to move up in the company unless you are prepared to relocate. No reason stay too long unless you've got a guarantee somewhere.

    Advice to Management

    Your not doing much wrong, the company just failed to pay enough for the work - keep up the great work and I appreciate everything you did to make my time there good.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Forest Pharmaceuticals (Indianapolis, IN) in January 2015.

    Interview

    Received a call for a phone interview within a week of applying. The interview was about 40 minutes long, and fairly easy. Met for an in-person interview at a hotel in Indy, which went well. I received a call a week later saying that they liked me, but had been put on a "hiring freeze" and they asked me to keep following up. Since they didn't like me enough to follow up with ME, I decided it was not the company for me.

    Interview Questions

    • Very conversational - Gave me about a minute to prepare for a "mock" sales scenario   Answer Question
