    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Watson Pharmaceuticals (Buffalo, NY) in October 2011.

    Interview

    Very open. Did not go thru resume much. Very conversational. They like to make certain that you are going to fit into the culture not just the role of the position. After meeting with the Director some of the Sales Managers were asked to come in and also talk to you. Again - very laid back. More about who you are.
