    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 daysinterviewed at Par Pharmaceutical Companies (Woodcliff Lake, NJ) in September 2014.

    Interview

    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
