    Pharmaceutical Sales Representative Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Parsippany, NJ
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at Daiichi Sankyo (Parsippany, NJ) in June 2015.

    Interview

    I applied online through an employee referral and heard back within a week for a phone screen. After the phone screen I was immediately asked to come in for a face-to-face interview. About one week later, I was asked to come in for a second interview. It was about 3-4 weeks later that I was contacted to go out on a field ride with a rep. It was extremely hard to get this scheduled, as the hiring manager was a very poor communicator. After the ride along, it was about another 2-3 weeks before I heard back to come in for a final interview. I didn't hear back for about a full month after reaching out several times. Finally I found out through another employee that the company recently had numerous lay-offs and was no longer looking into perspective hires. I would have appreciated better communication from this company, but over all the interview process was very thorough, slightly difficult, but not impossible.

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Daiichi Sankyo (Monroe, LA).

    Interview

    The company conducts several rounds of interviews before hiring. In each interview you will most likely meet with a different group of sales managers. The timeline on when the company will actually hire a candidate or make call backs for interviews is not very clear. Overall the interviewing process was very professional and informative.

    Pharmaceuticals Sales Representative Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Portland, OR

    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Daiichi Sankyo (Portland, OR) in May 2015.

    Interview

    They contacted me fairly quickly after submitting my resume. Set up a phone interview with a neighboring DM. F2F interview next week with DM and neighboring DM. DSI flew me out to that interview. Same day, received e-mail for next interview and to submit application. Just waiting to hear details for the next one and there may be one more. They told me it was dependent on the number of candidates they advanced. Overall, a good experience. The two DM's were very personable, a bit on the unprofessional side but I think they were trying to make me feel comfortable. Asked a few questions that lead to more personal answers which I thought inappropriate for pharma. A very positive experience though and they were very clear about what they were looking for. They also did a great job selling DSI; they absolutely love the company they are with which was good to hear.
