    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 5 days. I interviewed at Pfizer (Rocky Mount, NC).

    Interview

    Two separate interviews for the hiring process. The interview was a panel interview and each had separate questions to ask. The interview was kind of intimidating because the asked questions they knew I didn't know based on my experience with the job. They were very friendly though and overall it was a good learning experience.
