I worked at Acclarent full-time (More than 3 years)
JnJ back, good benefit, nothing else
Quality group is a mess
I applied through other source. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Acclarent in January 2016.
I received a call from the hiring manager for a position I did not apply for early December, he left a message stating that he was interested in my qualifications and in speaking to me. I called numerous times and left many voicemails only to receive a call back the day before NYE, asking me to drive 3.5 hours the very next day (NYE) to meet for an in person interview (almost a month later). I agreed, only to receive a phone call that morning cancelling the interview due to the weather conditions and a flight being delayed. I then agreed to meet with a salesperson that I would potentially be working with in the territory that I would potentially be working in. I agreed. The interview was scheduled at 4pm, then I received a call the reschedule to 3pm on the day of the interview. I drove 1hr to meet at 3pm. At 3:02, I received a call to leave the original meeting place and head to the Physicians office that the salesperson was currently completing a "case" at because he was running behind schedule. Directions were sent so then I went, only to have the salesperson still working and busy with the Doctor and speaking with me for a total of 8 mins. At the time, even though the salesperson was busy I thought that everything went well. He said that he was excited about the possibility of us working together and that he would be in touch with me the following Monday (I met with him on a Friday). The entire week went by, I heard nothing. The very next week, I decide to give a call, left a message, no return call from the salesperson or the district manager. Now 3 weeks later, because I am determined, I decide one last try by sending a message via LinkedIn, no response. However, one hour later I received an automated message that I was not chosen for the position. A position that I had not initially applied for, that I was pursued by the hiring manager for, told to then apply. Had to jump through hurdles to speak to someone, meet in person, and to never have calls return. This company has a great product and recently became part of a great company, Johnson & Johnson, but I would not recommend working in the Southeast Region as the management is horrible. If their interview process has any inclination on how they manage, then I would definitely say to steer clear of this company. It was the most unorganized unpleasant interview process I have ever been through in my life.
