    I worked at King Pharmaceuticals (More than 10 years)


    King was an excellent employer. I found it to be very forward looking and progressive in terms of advancing the organization, at least in the business unit where I was. I don't have any regrets or complaints.


    I don't really have any big cons to report. I only wish the company were still around. It was a unique and enjoyable place to work.

    Advice to Management

    C-suite could have been more visible at times to the rest of the organization, but many execs were still very approachable.

    Average Interview


    I applied online. The process took 4+ months. I interviewed at King Pharmaceuticals.


    Interview process was drawn out. Interviewed onsite in December 2003 and was told I was not selected for the position but would be hiring for more of the same position within 1st quarter of 2004. Had phone interview in March 2004 for Government Contract Analyst and was offered a Commercial Analyst Position....was a little confusing. On-boarding once I accepted the offer was pretty simple and the HR department was very helpful.

    Interview Questions

    • To explain experience dealing with government concerning pricing.   1 Answer


    Negotiation was n/a. The offer presented was more than I anticipated. Benefits were outstanding at the time I was hired.
