    Sales Management Interview

    Neutral Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a staffing agency. The process took 6+ weeks. I interviewed at Auxilium Pharmaceuticals in July 2009.

    Interview

    The interviewing process was lengthy, I met all of senior management for a mid-level sales management position for the impending launch of their new drug Xiaflex. It was a bit tedious but overall a fairly positive experience although I did not get the position. The follow up was timely on the recruiters part but there seemed to be hidden agendas with regards to the hiring decisions being made and driven from the top down, lots of people coming over from CV Therapeutics. With this tight job market and and the big layoffs in the biopharma industry its an employers market and they can cherry pick with so many displaced good people from down sizing across the industry.

    Interview Questions

    • How would you launch our new product in your region, layout a full sales/implementation launch plan. Written 2 page document that had to be prepared prior to final interview.   Answer Question
