    Pros

    Family mentality and great name with excellence attached to it. Great history and product portfolio with a long line of blockbuster products

    Cons

    Lower pay for industry standards, old school way of promotion. Need to go back to Sales incentives. The last few years have been a little shaky with clear direction and forecasting

    Advice to Management

    Get back to Sales incentives that are based on individuals to incentivize them to work hard

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at Eli Lilly and Company (Houston, TX) in May 2018.

    Interview

    Applied online. Passed the online screening test. 2 weeks later I finally got a call from a third-party recruiting company. Did a phone interview with a very pleasant gentleman, it lasted maybe 30 minutes. He told me he would definitely be passing me on to the next step, and would be hearing from HR very soon.

    A week passed and I got another call, from the same third-party company but a different recruiter who was very nice as well. She asked me if I had any questions regarding the job, training, etc. She gave me very precise timeline for the interviewing and training process should I be hired for the position, as well as the products I would be dealing with. Both recruiters were also very kind by giving me advice on how to rock the interview and suggested I think up some answers to STAR questions, etc. Asked to schedule an in-person interview for the following week. They worked with my schedule which was much appreciated!

    The actual interview was great. I was interviewed by 2 District Managers who were very professional and the whole process really felt more like a conversation. I did a lot of research about the hiring process at Eli Lilly and was told by a friend who works there that one of the specific managers would be very tough, but never did I feel like this was the case- the conversation was very fluid and they gave me a chance to ask them questions at the end of the interview, which was awesome because I had some additional personal insight to the company.

    I was told that I would be hearing from them in a week or two, so that is what I am doing right now.

    A day after the interview I was sent an e-mail with a form in which I can claim reimbursement for any expenses accumulated in order to get to the interview, which was very considerate of the company.
