    I worked at Forest Pharmaceuticals (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Well established company with very good benefits; Well organized and training relatively straight forward. My management was highly qualified for said position and treated us in a professional manner.

    Cons

    Company is geared toward primary care so some may find it stifling in a hospital or specialty setting; As such, reps were required to share rooms at meetings which I found to be questionable from an hr standpoint in this day and age.

    Advice to Management

    Once a rep achieves a level of specialty or hospital, they should be treated in more of an adult manner . Most reps at that level do not need the hand holding or micromanagement; Overall a decent company to work for and I was grateful for the opportunity!

    Pharmaceuticals Sales Representative Interview

    Neutral Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Forest Pharmaceuticals (Indianapolis, IN) in January 2015.

    Interview

    Received a call for a phone interview within a week of applying. The interview was about 40 minutes long, and fairly easy. Met for an in-person interview at a hotel in Indy, which went well. I received a call a week later saying that they liked me, but had been put on a "hiring freeze" and they asked me to keep following up. Since they didn't like me enough to follow up with ME, I decided it was not the company for me.
