    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 6 weeks. I interviewed at Hospira (Rocky Mount, NC) in October 2015.

    Interview

    I received an on campus interview from a college career fair. Then I was followed up by a group conference call with current TPDP participants and a phone interview with an engineering manager. I was then flown to Rocky Mount for an on site interview. This part was fun and relaxed and you could tell they already wanted you to work there

    Administrative Assistant Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Declined Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at Hospira in October 2015.

    Interview

    It was not really an interview, they merely emailed me some questions. I answered them, and then they said I was hired. They also sent me some money to buy supplies as I was to work remote. How an administrative assistant is to work remote, I have not the foggiest of ideas. I was told one thing by one person, and another thing by another person, and when I asked questions in an email, they did not answer them instead asking me questions like, this won't be a problem, no? Can you handle all fo this? Which I could, but with training, which was only supposed to be a week long, and I needed more time. I mentioned said thing, but it fell on deaf ears. I pulled out when they told me that they needed for me to send a copy of my deposit slip so they could have it from payroll purposes. This set up red flags, and I began to think this was a scam. It probably is.
