    I have been working at Apotex full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Company does have great health benefits and PTO. They match on 401k up to 4% and the people are friendly. I believe salary may be good as well but not 100% sure. They are starting to try to build morale again which is good.

    Cons

    They are moving to Miramar location. Some people who are in upper management should not be as they don't know how to lead but intimidate. When or if people are promoted, they do not attend management training. Departments are over worked and under staffed. There is not much room for growth. Communication is not good as well.

    Advice to Management

    Train Managers how to be effective leaders and promote within. Communicate more with employees.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Apotex in February 2014.

    Interview

    I had a wonderful experience with Apotex and their recruitment procedure. I had a phone screen, followed by an assessment followed by a face to face interview. They seemed very thorough with their questions and the recruiting manager kept me in the loop of where my application was and provided feedback throughout. I did not get the offer as a previous employee came back into the role. However, I would apply for a position with them again.
