    Didn't give interns ID badges, so we couldn't get into elevator until 9am when they worked freely for everyone. A lot of us arrived to work earlier than 9am, so we would be forced to wait outside or in the parking garage when we could be working.

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at Sucampo.

    Interview Details

    Through a group called "OnCall" which employs and deals with the contract sales force Sucampo uses. You'll get interviewed once on the phone and once on skype with OnCall, and then once with your regional sales manager since it's his final decision.

    OnCall is a small-ish group and the post i found was a nondescript text only post on a job board. So don't discount things for not being flamboyant.

    Interview Questions
    • Asked what I'd do if a receptionist informed me that they only let reps meet with doctors when they bring in lunch (you have a budget for lunches so you can't always bring one in), which is easy to answer if you have pharma sales experience. Hard if you are just entering the industry.   Answer Question
    Negotiation Details
    No negotiation.
