    Interview

    Applied online waited for a month then got a skills questionnaire. Afterwards got an interview request by a recruiter and then a phone interview with a hiring manager. Hiring manager was pleasant related his experience with the company eloquently. I felt there overall experience was ok. The hiring manager was
    Very pleasant but the time between application and interview was very long. Also the questionnaire, interview request and email from the recruiter were generic. Didn't appreciate that considering the how long the process was

    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.

    Team Coordinator Interview

    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

    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.
