Great work environment everyone is a team player from office employees to the warehouse. Management treats everyone fair across the board. This company is family oriented with picnic celebration regularly and family outings. They offer great pay, benefits, and tuition reimbursement, along with a great company standard.
The work hours can be a little hard to handle depending on which department you work in. Also you may experience working rotating weekends as well.

Getting an Interview
Getting an Interview
- No OfferNegative ExperienceDifficult Interview
I applied online. The process took 3 days – interviewed at Par Pharmaceutical Companies (Woodcliff Lake, NJ) in September 2014.
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.
- 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
