    Staff Attorney Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Chestnut Ridge, NY
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at Par Pharmaceutical Companies (Chestnut Ridge, NY) in March 2016.

    Interview

    The interview process for this position was very rushed. I went through three interview steps and very short notice was given for each. I got the strong feeling that the company cared more about getting an applicant who would work with their rushed timeline than in getting a candidate who was a good fit for the job. The final step that I completed was an interview that consisted of five different sessions with different people. This resulted in interviews that were not very in-depth or informative, since the questions in each session were basically repeats of questions from previous sessions. Before leaving this interview, I asked about next steps and was told to expect contact within a week. Three months later, I have not received any contact at all, and have not received the courtesy of a reply to my follow up emails. I would pass on a job offer from this company and would not apply there again. Their rude and discourteous treatment of their job applicants raises red flags about what it would be like to work for them.

    Outside Sales Representative Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Trenton, NJ
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took a week. I interviewed at Par Pharmaceutical Companies (Trenton, NJ) in December 2015.

    Interview

    Spoke to a recruiter on the phone, who said I was required to do an online interview. I thought this was really impersonal, since there was no opportunity for any follow up questions - more so "cut and dry". The program gave you 30 seconds to read the question on screen and 3 minutes to record your answer. Although it was very well organized, the questions were pretty general and it didn't give the interviewee a fair opportunity to show body language/personality. Also, the recruiter was very rude and had an attitude.

    Marketing Analyst Interview

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 5+ months. I interviewed at Par Pharmaceutical Companies (New York, NY) in December 2015.

    Interview

    I was required to answer a few questions via a video screening with basic questions pertaining to the role, nothing too complicated, but a bit impersonal. The recruiter called me back saying that everyone was impressed with my answers and would like to follow up with an in-person interview, again basic questions with nothing out of the ordinary. Met with Manager, Director, VP, and HR all on the same day which was actually a pleasant experience with everyone being really nice and informative. After the interview received all positive feedback from the recruiter who explained that I will be getting an answer probably in the next couple of weeks, which was OK because of the holiday break (Late December). I reached out to the recruiter mid-January and was told that they still didn't make a decision and it'll be a few more weeks. Time passed and I never heard back from them until a few weeks ago when they reached out again to see if I was interested in another position because the other one had been filled. I was surprised that I was never informed about this but months had passed by and was not surprised that the position was filled. I agreed to send my resume to go in for the 2nd available position and was never contacted after that. I was disappointed in not getting an offer but more disappointed in the lack of professionalism.

    G&A Position Interview

    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ weeks. I interviewed at Par Pharmaceutical Companies.

    Interview

    I was interviewed by someone who should absolutely know how to interview. It is scary that go/no go decisions were based upon this person's recommendation. This leads me to believe that the quality of hires is quite low. Reading a candidate's resume prior to the actual interview is important, otherwise the candidate knows there is no interest.
