    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Pfizer.

    Interview

    I applied online through Pfizer website, then 2 days later got an email for digital interview on HireVue. After a week later got an email from DM to set up phone interview. The DM probably has the worst communication skills ever. Glad I know beforehand so I do not have to deal with this DM.

    Engineering Interview

    Negative Experience

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Pfizer.

    Interview

    I applied in February and was contact in early March. I had two phone interviews for two positions within the company.

    The first interviewer seemed extremely distracted and frustrated during the interview. She asked general personality questions, however the majority of the interview I asked her questions and went over my experience. When I asked her questions about the company and position she responded with rushed and vague answers as if she did not want to give an interview at all. Overall, it seemed like a candidate was already chosen for the position before I even called, and the interviewer was required to interview a certain number of candidates or something.

    I had a great second interviewer who asked interview questions about my experience and gave detailed answers to my questions. The interview went well, was 15 minutes over the time slot, and the interviewer suggested the position would be a great fit for me and made sure I had his contact information. The interview took place on a Friday and I was informed that I was not selected the following Monday. This interview did not make sense to me and I believe final decisions were not made by the interviewer.

    Overall, the interview process at Pfizer is extremely frustrating and seems to rely more on luck than work experience and your interview.

    Manager Interview

    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Pfizer (New York, NY).

    Interview

    Multiple phone and in person interviews. The process was awful as there was never any time for questions and only focused on what I bring to the table and never switched to what they have to offer. Culture of the organization seemed to be highlighted in the interview - very structured, narrow focused, non collaborative organization with lots of politics.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    Interview

    Asked a lot of behavioral questions and used secondary questions to try to ruffle your feathers heavily, to the point of rudeness. Asked several management questions for an entry level position, and many other irrelevant questions.

    Team Coordinator Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in New York, NY
    No Offer
    Negative Experience

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Pfizer (New York, NY) in May 2017.

    Interview

    The standard interview process is them contacting you either 2 weeks after you applied or a day after the job expires. An auto response from hirevue asks you to do an interview at a random time and date which you can't usually negotiate because they don't give you a recruitment rep email. I didn't get a chance to even get contacted, because towards the end of the job, while it was still advertised, they hired a friend of a family member who doesn't even meet the qualifications that they requested beyond having a bachelor's. How disgraceful
