    Specialty Sales Representative Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in New York, NY
    No Offer
    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at inVentiv Health (New York, NY) in January 2017.

    Interview

    The interview process was standard in form and incorporated the antiquated STAR format. I felt as if they were trying to check boxes rather than really dig deep and see if I possessed the appropriate tools, experience, and ability.

    Senior Team Lead Interview

    Neutral Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    The process took 6 weeks. I interviewed at inVentiv Health (New York, NY).

    Interview

    The process began with a phone screening followed by in-person meetings with four senior team members. The company then required the completion of an online work-style assessment. Once completed, no confirmation or acknowledgement was received from the company despite follow-up attempts. The next and final communication was a generic email requesting the completion of a survey about their interview and hiring processes. Although the initial process was positive, the lack of acknowledgment or closure after taking the online assessment shows a lack of respect for candidates.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at inVentiv Health (Newark, NJ) in August 2016.

    Interview

    You were flown to a panel interview with a large group of other people from across the country. You interviewed with two people. They asked you a series of questions relating to the STAR format. They weren't as interested in your successes as they were your flexibility. Sometimes having great experience actually works against you and you may be overqualified for the job.

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2+ weeks. I interviewed at inVentiv Health (Newark, NJ) in November 2015.

    Interview

    I flew to New Jersey and had an interview with two District Sales Managers at the same time and then I made it to the third interview where I interviewed with another Manager. They were hiring a lot of people all over the country. After the whole process other people heard back within 2 days that they did not get the position and they took 8 days to get back to me. I sent the recruiter an email and called him the next day and did not hear from him until 3 days later. The recruiter was not very responsive.
