    Positive Experience

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. I interviewed at Takeda Pharmaceuticals.

    Interview

    District Manager phone call, District Manager personal interview, District Manager/Regional Manager personal interview. The process was fairly quick once it started. All steps leading up to getting hired took approximately 2 weeks. I was barely able to give 2 weeks notice for my other job since they wanted me on board right away to get into the upcoming training meeting.

    Negotiation

    At the time, the salary offered was very favorable to what I was receiving at my previous job and I was up against someone with more sales experience so I took their offer.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Takeda Pharmaceuticals (New York, NY) in February 2013.

    Interview

    A phone screen then three interviews. Two with managers and one with a regional sales manager. One of the managers who interviews you will potentially be your boss. The interview focuses on sales experience, relationship building, organization, professionalism, and accountability. The final interview with the regional sales manager might be the hardest one, but if you get past the first two that means that they are seriously considering hiring you. Be sure to know about the company culture and history as well as the products lines. There is a ton of good information on their website.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at Takeda Pharmaceuticals (Atlanta, GA).

    Interview

    Great. The process started off with a phone screen. Then I met with manager in current territory, and was able to get a feel for the management style and the job role itself. The final stage was a meeting with the district manager and the regional manager.
