Pharmaceutical Sales Representative Interview

Anonymous Employee in Washington, DC
Accepted Offer
Positive Experience
Average Interview

Application

I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at inVentiv Health (Washington, DC) in October 2017.

Interview

I originally applied online. My best piece of advice: submit your resume to their website. The recruiters are very helpful and responsive. They were working with me for a few weeks, submitting me into different interviews. The process of one position took about 1-2 weeks. The recruiter emailed be about the position. I expressed interest. A phone interview with the recruiter was scheduled. Once I was screened, I was scheduled to meet the hiring manager the next week. Once we met, he decided to move me forward to the regional manager. Once we spoke on the phone and everything went well, I was offered a position. The managers were very friendly but professional and intelligent.

    The process took 2 days. I interviewed at inVentiv Health.

    Interview

    They flew me into to Dallas and interviewed the next day.

    After they told me that I can be fired even a day after getting hired my interest disappeared and I think they saw that. I left right after to the airport. Didn't even want a shoot at a second interview

    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.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at inVentiv Health (Houston, TX) in July 2016.

    Interview

    I did 1 phone interview with a recruiter. She was typing in my responses as I was speaking. So the way she was typing them in is what the hiring manager would see. She was not a hiring manager. I feel like the recruiter was honestly not paying attention to what I said. I had to constantly repeat myself not knowing if she was interpreting my answers how I was responding.
