    Pharmaceutical Sales Representative Interview

    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Arbor Pharmaceuticals.

    Interview

    During the phone screening, the first thing the HR rep and I talked about was compensation. She wanted to make sure I was comfortable with the pay scale. After listening the the bottom line I informed her that the base itself was very very low for New York. I explained to her that the area she wanted me to work would require me to pay additional taxes, which would make an acceptable base to low and Arbors bottom line was even lower than that. She admitted that Arbor had been finding it difficult to place people in the area and that it was not until I pointed out the tax issue that she understood why. I explained to the HR Rep that I was interested the in the total package and, because of that, I was willing to explore the opportunity.

    After she and I concluded our phone screening, the HR Rep, Ms. Bakker was her name, told me to get to know 2 products very well, learn about the company, and be ready to receive a call that afternoon. I spent 2 hours learning about the products, the company, product competition ect. However, I never received that call. I emailed Ms. Bakker that evening and she informed me that I would hear from the DM the next day. I waited 6 days before contacting Ms. Bakker again. Ms. Bakker informed me that she "thought the position was filled internally" but if it was not she would have the DM call me.

    I told Ms. Bakker that getting back to me was not needed. I politely told her that I had done my duediligence per her the request. 20 minutes later I received a reply that Read, "I will be sure to remove you from the future opening. I didn't feel you to be that interested anyway. Good luck in your future endeavors!"

    This Company unapologetically waisted my time.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Arbor Pharmaceuticals.

    Interview

    Solid phone interview process with a nice recruiter, lasted about 30 minutes. Moved forward to an in person interview with a regional manager. Terrible on-site process, the interviewer was extremely distracted, rude and condescending. I would not recommend going through the process with Arbor. Their company message completely contradicts what they look for in candidates.

    Spoke with a recruiter first. 30 minutes, very easy going. The first interview is essential to determine if you have the personality to compete in pharmaceutical sales. I passed the first interview.

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Arbor Pharmaceuticals (Pittsburgh, PA) in June 2017.

    Interview

    only had first call, HR persons name was Brenda and she was pretty awesome for just having a phone interview. she stayed up beat, asked me some pretty general questions, asked about my backround a little and than told me about the job.....Im sure this was just an initial screening but I felt it was positive. I was treated like my time was valuable and although I researched the products and knew them in and out, she spent time going over new products with me and told me that where i was is a hot bed for some of the incoming products. I would love to work for this company

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Arbor Pharmaceuticals (New York, NY) in July 2017.

    Interview

    Initial phone interview with a very personable HR recruiter. Vetting process to determine experience for the position. Then phone interview with Area Sales Manager to get to know you and company culture. Finally a face to face with Area Manager and current rep to determine fit. They give a PowerPoint presentation to prepare for the face to face to determine YOUR strategy on how you would do the job. Process was pretty straightforward. If your a pro and do your homework, you should be fine.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Arbor Pharmaceuticals (New York, NY) in June 2017.

    Interview

    The district sales manager came completely unprepared, did not know anything about my resume and track record; and did not even make an effort to work on the biz-case and value contribution my credentials would have brought. Also, the position I interviewed was for NYC, and the interviews took place about 1 hour outside the city on LI. Clearly, the responsible sales manager that was sent had absolute no idea about the area and the business here. Clueless beginners, would not recommend.
