Neutral Experience
Average Interview

Application

I applied through an employee referral. The process took 3 days. I interviewed at Sanofi (Cincinnati, OH) in July 2013.

Interview

I was contacted Friday afternoon to schedule a Monday morning interview. I met in a hotel lobby with the District Sales Manager and an Executive Sales Representative. Very positive experience overall. Standard format with introductions, resume review and several behavioral interview questions. Left a little time at the end for my questions and additional info about the potential territory.

    Application

    I applied through other source. The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at Sanofi (Cleveland, OH) in January 2012.

    Interview

    3 month long process with 7 interviews is truly unnecessary. So Many lateral type managers with the same questions. Than they lost the paperwork wich made the process 6 months long. Only to place me in a completely different territory until east side suburbs of cleveland had opening 2 years later. My biggest impression of this company was that they were too top heavy, meaning too many managers wanting / scrambeling to manage but not enough workers doing the work.

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. I interviewed at Sanofi (West Palm Beach, FL) in May 2016.

    Interview

    Two District Managers met with me. They were both very professional but also very friendly. Since I had prior Pharmaceutical experience they asked a lot of situational questions. My last interview was with the Regional Sales Manager. He is was very business like for the first 10 to 15 minutes then he seemed to relax some and I received his stamp of approval.
