    Outside Sales Representative Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Declined Offer
    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 6+ weeks. I interviewed at Medisca.

    Interview

    Great interview experience even though the entire process is held on Skype. Everyone in the staff is very professional and timely in manner. Initially was a phone interview and then a face 2 face. Third was another face 2 face with hr manager and sales manager. Each interview has very simmilar questions and are pretty easy overall. Last interview is with VP of sales. Same type of interview but was more unformal.

    The whole problem here is the last of getting anything set in stone. The transparancy is awful and there is no real feedback on how they feel about you or not.

    I initially wanted to work with this company but after the interview process i would have second thoughts because of how the entire process when.

    Reasons for Declining

    Highly unprofessional with keeping timelines for starting dates and dates for interviews.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Medisca in November 2014.

    Interview

    The interview was a smooth process just not necessarily a fast one. All of your interviews take place via web cam. Everyone was very nice and professional, always very prompt in calling you. My recruiter was amazing, she always had me well informed as to what was going on and when I would hear from them next. It took about a month to get through the process although I don't know that this is normal as when I was offered the position they apologized for the lengthy process. Overall a smooth interview process.

    QC Technician Interview

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Medisca (Prosper, TX) in May 2015.

    Interview

    The interview process was terrific! I felt that the questions were straight-forward and that the interviewers were very informative as well concerning the company and the job position. The first contact was via telephone with the HR Rep. After the phone interview which was pretty brief, I was scheduled to do a 1:1 interview via web conference with the HR Rep. After covering some basic information about background, job knowledge, and previous employment, I was told that I would be contacted by the department manager for a follow-up interview. Within a few days or so, I was notified via e-mail of the follow-up interview with the QA Manager.

    Upon meeting with the QA Manager via web-cam, I must say that I had total appreciation for the professionalism and the brevity of their portion of the interview process. The interviewer's questions were precise, job specific, and few. We spoke briefly about any concerns that I may have about the job or the company and any additional skills that I may care to mention. This portion of the interview process probably lasted about 10-15 minutes approximately.

    The final portion before being offered the position came when it was a bit difficult for the HR Manager to reach the supervisory references that were supplied to them. We spoke about the progress of the background check and ensured that all contact information was correct.

    Once everything was verified, I was contacted by Medisca with a formal written offer of employment with all benefits noted. A review of the offer was done via telephone, and a copy of the offer was emailed to me to sign if I agreed to accept the offer.

    Interview Questions

    • Being that I attend college, I was asked if I felt that working for Medisca--if hired--would interfere with my classes.   1 Answer

    Negotiation

    In considering an offer; the best time to negotiate would be at the time that an offer is made and before it has been emailed to you. For me, we discussed the acceptable terms in the earlier stages of the interview process.

    QC Technician Interview

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Medisca (Irving, TX) in February 2014.

    Interview

    I saw a posting on CareerBuilder about a job at Medisca for a QC technician. To apply, all I had to do was email my resume to the company's HR. One day later, I received a call from an HR manager at Medisca inquiring about my resume. She gave me a phone interview. After the call was over, I received an email asking if I would be willing to do another interview via webcast. I thought this was the best way ever to conduct an interview. I didn't have to worry about traffic and I was in the comfort of my own home. There were two women at a desk asking questions. Most of the questions were very general interview questions. They asked if I had ever made QC documents. A couple of days later, I received an email from the same HR manager asking if I was able to meet with them in person. They scheduled an interview. I met with a woman at the Irving, TX facility. She was very pleasant and easy to talk to. She asked me about 30 questions altogether. The manager liked me so much, she hired me on the spot, pending my background check. I didn't hear back about the job until 2 weeks later. They offered me the position. The entire process took about a month.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Medisca (Irving, TX) in September 2016.

    Interview

    Interview process was very smooth. I applied to the position on 9/19/16 and got a phone call from a HR Recruiter the next day. I was hesitant at first because the phone call was from a Canada number. I did a phone interview with the recruiter and was told that I would be forwarded to the hiring manager and should expect to hear something within 1-2 days. I ended up getting a call like 15 mins later asking me can I come in tomorrow for an interview. I was nervous upon entering the interview but there were two men interviewing me and they made the interview relaxed and comfortable while still maintaining professionalism which I admired. I aced the interview and was asked to sign background authorization forms. The following Monday I was asked to provide professional references. After my references were verified, I was given the job offer.
