    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Pfizer.

    Interview

    The first interview is a Virtual Interview, in which you are asked a series of questions and then given 2-3 minutes to answer the specific questions. Before answering you are given about a minute to gather your thoughts and adjust yourself in the camera before recording your answer.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Pfizer in February 2018.

    Interview

    I applied online and was invited to do a HireVue interview two weeks later. I'd like to mention that this will be my fourth interview with Pfizer using HireVue within this past year alone. I'm tempted to refuse any job interview that uses HireVue since it's incredibly impersonal and awkward. Imagine filming a YouTube video or submitting a video for a TV show, it's like that but they give you 30 seconds to prepare your answer and there's no editing or going back, once it's recording it captures everything. To be honest I don't think I'm good at it because generally I don't speak in front of a camera. I believe that it's a lazy and cheap way of recruiting people. I've tried to get feedback but not once has Pfizer contacted me after my HireVue interviews, even when I tried to reach out to the recruiter who sent it to me, they ignored my emails. This is very unprofessional and makes me second guess whether or not I want to work with a company that uses this recruitment process. At least the other pharmaceutical companies send an automated email saying they're moving forward.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at Pfizer.

    Interview

    After two weeks of applying online I received an invite to schedule an interview via Hirehue which is basically a one way interview where you are talking and looking at yourself in a video. Very akward feeling. Typical STAR questions. One of the questions I remembered was explain the gaps in your employment. Any one knows that, that type of question when you have experienced a few layoffs should be explained in person not on a one way video. Overall, I don't think I did my best as I am a personal type of person. I like interaction and eye contact etc and making a connection. I feel this interview is kind of bias because the person that will be reviewing it will perceive you how they want to perceive you whether you did well or not. With that said it has been about 3 business days and no response yet. Either way it was not a good experience at all.
