    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Forest Laboratories (Chicago, IL) in March 2014.

    Interview

    I received a call from a local manager, we played phone tag for a few weeks, then he finally called me back and invited me for an in person interview, and we skipped the phone interview. The interview was in a hotel conference room, they told me about the company, position, asked me interview questions, then I did a role play, which consisted of selling a fake drug to a fake doctor. They're really just trying to see your sales style with this exercise.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Forest Laboratories in March 2012.

    Interview

    Phone interview- very basic. I made sure I knew product info and sales type questions that you would normally expect. However nothing was normal to me about this interview. It was mainly a personality test geared toward throwing you off and probing further past what information is normally acceptable in an interview.
