    Rotational Development Associate Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Raleigh, NC

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Pfizer (Raleigh, NC).

    Interview

    The first interview was at my university and then I was invited for a final onsite interview a couple of weeks later. There was a facility tour, case study, and several panel interviews- very laid back- the case study was not technical based and more so just to see how you think on your feet.

    Audit Interview

    Average Interview

    Application

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

    Interview

    A bit lengthy in that there are phone interviews and in person interviews, out of state at your expense. One phone interview will be focused purely on your technical skills. Be ready for anything as the interviewer is looking for something specific. The in person interview was a bit disappointing as the HR rep had not reviewed my resume. Therefore I was asked questions and suggestions were made based on skilled noted in the resume.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took a week. I interviewed at Pfizer in April 2017.

    Interview

    It was a fairly informal interview. My interviewer mainly wanted to know what relevant experience i had to the job. It's really important that you are able to use current/previous coursework and experiences (mine were bench lab experiences) to prove to them that youre qualified and would be an asset to their department.

    The interview was ok. The manger was a foods guy. But no one ever even bothered to email me to let me know I wasn't getting the job. That's no class.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at Pfizer.

    Interview

    I applied online and was fortunate to have an employee referral. After applying I heard from the recruiter and hiring manager and scheduled a phone interview. The phone interview was about 30 minutes long- make sure to do your research on the company, why you want to work there, know about the products/climate. After that I did an in-person interview with hiring manager and one other manager which lasted about 45mins - 1 hour. I heard from the hiring manager that day and was told I would be doing a final interview with regional manager the following week. I received an offer the following week.
