Be prepared for feedback and use that feedback if given an opportunity to repeat the exercise.

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took a week. I interviewed at Allergan (Dallas, TX) in August 2016.

    Interview

    Phone call with hiring manager. Asked a few basic questions more getting to know me rather than sales type questions. Had a face to face interview which lasted about an hour. Really good interview with both the hiring manager and a sales director. They seemed to generally care about the process and getting to know me with a few "tell me about a time when..." questions thrown in from time to time. Overall good experience, but as with any sales role they want numbers and solid experience dealing with clients. Any experience in healthcare seems to be a huge plus.
