    I worked at Par Pharmaceutical Companies as an intern (less than an year)

    Pros

    The internship program gives you awesome access to learn about all aspects of the company. Interns get to do real work.

    Cons

    Interns have to do real work. The real work is not always interesting and can quite often be draining in its repetition and ease (feels unproductive).

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Make sure that when hiring even low-level employees, that they are motivated. Having a staff of ambitious and positive people can really transform how rewarding working there is.

    Attorney Interview

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 3 daysinterviewed at Par Pharmaceutical Companies in September 2014.

    Interview Details

    Brief telephone conversation about the position and my salary expectations followed by on-line "interview" where I had to log into a system with my computer and record answers to questions using my webcam. I was not speaking to a real person, just a computer, so there was no opportunity for follow-up questions or any give and take. When the question comes up on the screen you have 30 seconds to formulate a response and then 3 minutes to state your answer. I found this to be very cold, impersonal, and much more difficult than a live interview. I am sure I did not present myself well due to my nervousness. I did not receive any feedback in the 2 weeks following the interview.

    Interview Questions
    • Can't remember a specific question. I had expected a typical "phone interview" line of questioning where I simply go through my qualifications. Most questions were of the "describe a time when..." type, which I think are much more difficult to answer in this format.   Answer Question
    No Offer
