    Interview

    Applied through a recruiter, manager then called to set up phone interview for the next day. Called the next day and had a 40 minute phone interview that was insane. Was more like what I would expect from an in person interview.

    Territory Manager Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Pensacola, FL
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. I interviewed at Salix Pharmaceuticals (Pensacola, FL) in January 2016.

    Interview

    Phone interview, face to face interview, and 2nd face to face interview. The initial phone interview was fairly simple. The next step was a face to face interview with two managers. The 3rd step was the 2nd face to face, with one of the managers. I had to present a study of the drug as if the interviewer was the physician. The last step was another phone interview with the regional sales manager and then I received the offer. Next, I had to provide W2 information for my background investigation and a drug screening. Once all was in the clear, I started the job that following week. Home study first, mine was a 2 week time period and then a 1.5 week training at corporate. Then you will have some additional training out in the field with your training manager.

    Interview Questions

    • For the second interview, they emailed an abstract and study for me to read and understand in order to present it the next day.   1 Answer

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at Salix Pharmaceuticals (Raleigh, NC).

    Interview

    The process is really long, it takes multiple months for you to go thru the entire interview process. Don't be surprised if you have to wait about three months to get a job offer.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through a staffing agency. The process took a week. I interviewed at Salix Pharmaceuticals (Raleigh, NC).

    Interview

    Multiple interviews, Phone with HR, First round interview with multiple people, 2nd round interview with multiple people. All in all a very thorough review process checking culture fit and necessary experience.

    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience

    Interview

    Very thorough and extensive. You will have a phone screen with Human Resources. Then a phone screen with the hiring manager. You will then have 1 full day of onsite interviews. Sometimes the full day is split into two depending on scheduling conflicts. The process is thorough but the talent across the company is exceptional.

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. I interviewed at Salix Pharmaceuticals (Wesleyan Col, NC) in March 2015.

    Interview

    Fair but basic. They took some time to go through the whole process. It took about four weeks to complete everything. In the end, I declined the offer to take on another career opportunity. I would do your research to find out if this is a good match for you. Work life balance is at an all-time low from what i have found out.
