    Inspector Interview

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 5 days. I interviewed at Pfizer (Saint Louis, MO) in March 2016.

    Interview

    The Interview process was simple and straightforward. First and foremost there was a test you have to complete in order to be interviewed and only upon passing the test will you be interviewed. I had previously taken the test and did not pass due to missing -11, which 10 is the cut off. At that point I moved on from Pfizer, until I opened my email and seen that I was invited back for an interview. This time I was under the impression that I was only coming in for an interview and it was for a different position. I was interviewing for the Inspector position at Meridian Medical Technologies a (Pfizer Company). The process started as it did previously. Shortly after being there the same facilitator as last time mentions a test. At this point I'm thinking it could be a different test. Turns out to be the same test as before. This time I passed the test only missing 5 questions despite not changing my approach. Also if you don't pass its not like they let you see which ones you missed. Since I passed I was invited to interview the same day. The interview was going well about 15 to 20 minutes in and in process of wrapping. Abruptly and in a rude demeanor the test facilitator interrupts the interviewer mid sentence and says this candidate is disqualified, she stated I took the test a week ago and failed. While in the hallway I informed her that I applied to several different positions at Pfizer and had not applied again since being told i did not pass the test. She was very rude and shunned me out of the door, all this while in front of the other perspective employees. I never been so embarrassed and criminalized like this in my life, especially not in a corporate setting. Her approach was very unprofessional to say the least. To management the process of selecting interviews and testing for employees needs to be restructured. It was not conveyed to me that I was going to be doing the same test I supposedly initially failed before, it seems that should have been caught beforehand before I wasted valuable money and time. One bad apple can really spoil a bunch

    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a staffing agency. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at Pfizer (Saint Louis, MO).

    Interview

    This was a contract position. Initial communication was with contracting agency who only asked general questions about skills and experience. I had a 20 minute phone interview with a group of scientists in the department I would be working in. They mostly asked technical questions about SDS-PAGE and SEC.

    Interview Questions

    • No difficult questions were asked. I suspect they are were mostly trying to find out how many of the techniques you list on your resume you actually understand...and how many you "did one time in a lab class" Make sure you have some theoretical understanding of how the techniques you supposedly "know" work, and not just be able to set it up and get the data.   Answer Question

    Interview Questions

    • since this was to be a temp position with no hopes of a permanent job, it makes no sense as to why they ask where I expect to be in 5 years.   1 Answer
