    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Depomed.

    Interview

    Straightforward questions. Make sure you know the products and specialists, even better if you can get a direct referral from one. Understanding of Specialty Pharmacies, Prior Authorizations, and Buy & Bill is also helpful. Close hard for the next step in the process. Ask about Training, Territory, Previous Rep, etc... to show you are invested.

    Application

    The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at Depomed.

    Interview

    Nice people, but the marketing organization is clearly unorganized and overworked. It's never a good sign that the person in the position you're interviewing for bashes the department and company. I passed on this after the 1st live interviews.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at Depomed (Minneapolis, MN) in December 2013.

    Interview

    I had several phone interviews with the Regional manager. The job was put on hold and then re-opened so the RM called me again to interview. She wanted to meet over lunch and do the interview. This is never a good idea unless you do not care about the job or already have the job. I declined lunch and answered her questions as she went through the HR typed booklet. The questions were basic, nothing very difficult. The interviewer was nice enough as well, but a little flighty. She looked at her phone too much during the process as well. At the conclusion of the interview she told me the exact date when a decision would be made. I told her I would follow up on that date as well. This was 2.5 months ago and I never received even a form email from the company.
