Sales Representative Interview

Average Interview

Application

I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Sanofi in July 2009.

Interview

in my opinion most positions are 'pre-filled' ahead of time - in that the manager knows who they want in advance and just goes through the interview process in order to be in compliance with HR guidelines. given that sanofi has been under a 'hiring freeze' for 2+ years, new employees are generally hired via a contract sales force - which is the first to get axed once additional cuts are needed.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. I interviewed at Sanofi (Cambridge, MA).

    Interview

    Began with a quick 20-30min phone call from their HR department. Extremely nice and helpful lady asked me why medical sales. Set me up with an interview with the head of sales. Upon arriving there the company's front desk employee was extremely rude and condescending. Told me to get out of the way for other people coming in and was very unhelpful. Terrible look on the company especially as being the organizations first impression like mine. The interviewer had me write up a 30-60-90 day integration plan that he didn't even look at. Drove 2 hours, paid $26 to park for an interview that lasted 10minutes. Very u helpful as to what the job entailed. When asked the common task/duties seen day to day as someone in this position he replied "8 hours a day, every 15 minutes just calling people trying to get a sale." I had actually asked him more questions that he asked me. Left extremely disappointed and declined the second interview.
