    Medical Representative Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Toronto, ON (Canada)
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at Servier (Toronto, ON (Canada)).

    Interview

    Very long interview process, 2+ interviews that were quite long and spaced out. The whole process (from the time I applied until I was hired) was about 3 months. However, the questions were fair and they really want to make sure you have a passion for the position and the company.

    Interview

    The job interview that I had with RH and two R&D responsables was fast. People were nice except the RH madame, she was a bit arrogant, maybe she is supposed to be like that.

    Medical Sales Representative Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Mississauga, ON (Canada)
    No Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Servier (Mississauga, ON (Canada)) in November 2016.

    Interview

    They asked a lot of questions to see whether I am fit for the tough sales environment. The base salary here is low at $60,000. They did not do a good job selling the position as they talked about a lot of negatives of the role such as driving alone for long hours, lots of rejection by GPs. Do your research and make sure that you have examples of how you are/will be an aggressive sales person. I felt the interviewer's attitude was very negative towards me ie he thought I was inexperienced and not fit for sales.

    This is an OK place to start your career in pharmaceutical sales, however do move on to other bigger companies when you have more experience. There is not much room for growth here as it is a small company and they do not have corporate offices anywhere other than the Laval.

    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Servier (Ottawa, ON (Canada)) in October 2016.

    Interview

    I was recruited through LinkedIn. The recruiter was difficult to understand as she was very French. Overall the interview and the experience was well. I don't really know why I was recruited as she was looking for someone full time and she knew I was in university still. The interview was quite long as well-lasted about 45-60 minutes.
