    Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Philadelphia, PA

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. I interviewed at Jazz Pharmaceuticals (Philadelphia, PA) in June 2017.

    Interview

    Phone Interview that went very well. We spoke for a little while about why I was applying and what I was looking for. Very upfront about their apprehensions early and in the end it was clear that I was not the right candidate for the position. I appreciated the transparency and willingness to discuss other opportunities at Jazz in the future. Very impressed with the hiring process

    Recruiting Interview

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Jazz Pharmaceuticals.

    Interview

    I applied online and got an email saying they wanted to schedule a phone screen. on the day of the phone screen, I had an urgent situation come up at work. i wrote asking for a re-schedule and got no reply. i then followed up again only to get a curt reply saying that they won't be re-scheduling. I shudder to think about how harsh the company culture must be given this experience at the front door. how stressed must this HR person be to be so rude and judgemental. which reflects on the company culture.
